**cw blood, period & body talk** 🌈in honor of my regular cycle, we are gonna do some unpacking of menstrual-phobia (or menophobia I guess) it's commonly understood that nobody ~wants~ their period and that it's generally a bummer to get it. can I just say what the fuck??? I have experienced lots of menstrual disorder including painful and irregular periods (not to mention a deformed uterus) and I have of course hated it in my own life at times. Hated that if I didn't have a uterus my life would be so simple. I would't have to take unnecessary medication, buy unnecessary products or be vilified when I became more emotionally & physically sensitive. I felt out of control and crazy. It was sad. And I'm not preaching because I understand everyone has their own journey and sometimes when a part of our body is disordered or diagnosed (endometriosis, PCOS, dysmenorrhea, body dysmorphia just to name a few) it's hard not to feel threatened by, ashamed of or hateful toward that body part. But as someone who's gone through surgeries, medications and years of being misdiagnosed before finally becoming passionate about my own reproductive health, I now see my bleeding time as a part of me just like any other that deserves respect and celebration. Now, I'm not promoting gender essentialism or equating menstruation with gender, but anyone who menstruates might find it really a huge relief to try to celebrate it. I'm gonna get woowoo here and say that's the way things were since the first menstruation- celebrated and respected. And I know this is sometimes thrown away as a non-issue in feminism, so why is it that the only prominent & celebrated artists using blood as paint I found were cis men?? and that the only result I found for women painting in their own menstrual blood was "weird things women do with their period blood???" πŸ€”πŸ€”I see comments from my peers, even feminists ones, shaming themselves for bleeding. It is not a small issue, it's integral to self-acceptance which is integral to feminism. Accepting and loving yourself entirely is essential to freeing yourself from patriarchal control and for some people that includes their periods ❣️let people heal: DAY 3 OP MY PERIOD STARTER PACK Weird things women do with their me...
