“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?
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.

You’ll be dead in 5 minutes.
