They'll Never Take Us Alive







“This is really NORMAL. 
Except we never see it-so it is terrifying and uncomfortable when it happens. 
(Mostly because people would laugh or be unkind)

I own a sex shop. Once a woman bled on our chair during an interview. She was horrified and felt ashamed because it was in some way unprofessional. We weren’t bothered. We said ‘what better place to work on being ok with your body than at a feminist sex shop?’
Bleeding is normal and dealing with it is one of the most pervasive ways women are complicit in their silence.

Some men bleed too. How would you react to that? For many men who are Trans the act of bleeding is a security threat.

Fuck off with your lolz.”

I really like this, because as a woman, your period is something to be hidden from everyone, don’t make any noise with a pad, don’t let anyone see you wearing a pad, don’t let you tampon string hang out, don’t wear this, this and this on your period and for god’s sake don’t be unprepared when it starts, because then you’ll get blood everywhere. A women’s period is something to be rejoiced as an act of fertility, your body is just letting you know you can make new people so why is it such a shame to have a period?

fucking this.

Forever hating the monthly process since ‘96 because they hurt, create a mess, and generally suck, man. I hate bleeding from my genitals every month, there’s not much celebratory about that. Y’all can talk them up all you want, that said, I respect the sentiments above. Menstruation shouldn’t be associated with shame, but let’s keep it real - I’d pass on menstruating if I could genetically rewire how it all works down there. What a wasteful fucking biological function.

i respect women and their bodies. what happens naturally can’t be helped, but all of this just looks really unsanitary to me. i bleed constantly because i have colon problems, but i find ways not to let it get through my clothing to any surfaces i know other people are going to be touching. it’s called “having a respect for others”. feminism isn’t an excuse to just bleed all over public places and then harp on others for not respecting your body because you’re a woman.

Totally agree. Free-bleeding is gross.

“1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise.

2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.

3. erase processed food from your diet. start with no lollies, chips, biscuits, then erase pasta, rice, cereal, then bread. use the rule that if a child couldn’t identify what was in it, you don’t eat it.

4. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else.

5. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything.

6. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.

7. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small.

8. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full.

9. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle.

10. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.

11. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog.

12. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through.

14. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything.

15. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends.

16. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you.”
