“Ha, ha! Look at her, she has a disease! Ha, ha! What, does she have pain from her disease? Oh, how hilarious that she has a disease! OMG, that’s SO disgusting! How embarrassing it must be to have a disease! If she is not ashamed of her disease, then she should be!”
You would never say that, would you? It sounds so absurd and repulsive, that it was hard to even write!
Now replace the word disease with the word period…!
For all of you that have ever made fun of a lady for menstruating, are “grossed out” by periods, or avoided the topic when a loved one needed you, because of your distorted “feelings” about menstruation, you should really take a few minutes to THINK about what you are doing and educate yourself more about menstruation, please. Your mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, daughter, and every woman you know, have known, or will know has or will menstruate! And she will have her period for approximately a week out of every month, for 40 years of her life!
For those understanding, loving, wonderful supporters, we thank you, on behalf of every woman that will ever grace the planet!
Without menstruation, none of us would even exist! Isn’t it time for the “P” word to be as openly discussed as topics that were just recently “taboo”, such as breast disease and same sex marriage? Isn’t it time that we start being more knowledgeable and understanding, as we do all co-exist and menstruation is here to stay, if mankind is going to continue!?!
Isn’t it time for your daughter, sister, wife, and mother to have a proud period, instead of being ashamed of her God given ability to co-create a human life? We know it is! And if you are honest and decent, then so do you!
Please be understanding and educated, so that life on planet earth will be better for everyone! And if you want to, please take The Period Pride Pledge by Period PantEEZ at http://www.periodpride.org !
