The constant fear of bleeding through clothes
The constant cramps
Having to change pads/tampons every 2-4 hours
Having to deal with mood swings
Having to deal with boys going ‘Oh someones on their period’
When you stand up its like a waterfall from your vagina
Craving food to calm you down
The constant fear that you smell of blood even though you dont
Feeling over emotional
YOU MEAN I DON’T ACTUALLY SMELL LIKE BLOOD?!
Timing tampons around bed time.
Timing tampons around swimming.
Being prepared for irregulars to hit on ANY day.
Being prepared for irregulars to last way longer than usual, even when they start lightening when the should and then BAM a second wave.
I find it interesting how society doesn’t care when the media sexualizes women, when men sexualizes women, when school and the government sexualizes women. But the second a woman is in control and sexualizes herself willingly it’s wrong and disgusting.
look at this picture
when you see it, you cannot unsee it
it’s a woman
PAINTED TO LOOK LIKE A PARROT
it took me 5 minutes to find her
I WAS LIKE NO THAT’S NOT A WOMAN, THAT’S A PARROT
I just read a guide to getting the most out of travelling, written by a man. It’s all well and good saying to ‘take the road less travelled’, ‘ditch the tour groups’ and ‘let yourself get lost’.
But as a woman, worldly considered a second class citizen, this seems like dangerous advice.
