Hi there stranger, Captain here! Yes, I am female, I am 15 years old, and spend most of my free time drawing stupid stuff. This blog will contain a lot of hijack, art, and memes (you have been warned), along with other random things that I like. You're welcome to send me a message whenever you like, even if it's just to say hello, or to tell me about your day! I have no social life, so I'll probably get back to you fairly quickly.

------------------------------------------Welcome, and thanks for stopping by!

Parineeti Chopra responds to a male reporter who claims to know nothing about periods (menstrual cycle). [X]

SO IMPORTANT.

I started my period when I was 10 years old. But we didn’t tell my grandma for three years because she subscribed to the “old traditions”, where a woman on her period could not enter the house, not even to bathe. Where she had to sit outside in front of the house (where the whole village could be witness to her shame and isolation) for the entire duration.

My friend started her period unexpectedly while we were at our local temple (in America) for dance class. Asking around if any of the parents had pads (all of them apologized and acted like adults about it), I thought surely the front office has a first aid kit. Don’t they have pads? When we asked, not only did they not have any, when one of the women gave one from her purse, the head secretary told us “There are men who need to use the first-aid kit, ya? So we don’t keep period things there.” Not even ibuprofen (which has so many more uses than period pain).

There are girls in India and Nepal (and other places, but I just read an in-depth piece about the situations in Nepal) who have to go to the “period hut” when their period comes and not leave until its over. They can’t wash and dry their cloth pads in the daylight, so they do it at night when the pads won’t dry properly before their next use, making them vulnerable to infection.

It is incredibly important, especially in India, to break the taboo surrounding periods. Break the secrecy around an event that happens to almost every woman, every month for literally half of her lifetime. Break the hiding, break the cover-up, break the SHAME.

Just break EVERYTHING. So little girls can go to school every day of every month without feeling ashamed. So women can work every day of every month to provide for their families without being glared at. So single fathers can confidently take care of their daughters’ health. So that women can talk about how terrible their period is or isn’t and give each other advice on how to deal with it without looking around to make sure men aren’t listening.
So that Whisper doesn’t have to be called Whisper, it can be called SHOUT. It can be called PROUD. So that we don’t NEED to fucking WHISPER about our bodies and our health.

It’s ridiculous how men think periods are disgusting. Like I’m sorry that my body is normally working and able to welcome your beautiful and wonderful baby. I am very not sorry to be a woman and to disgust you.

#yeah really it's ridiculous  #so what if guys think it's gross this is a thing that happens to every woman  #and it needs to be addressed  #because pads and tampons are necessities  #and if we don't get them because guys are too squeemish to acknowledge periods  #we'll bleed on everything you love  #see how you feel about that 

we joke about procrastination but nothing is worse than the nauseating feeling of having every intention of doing something but physically not being capable of doing it and then feeling like you want to throw up because the deadline is just getting closer and closer.

#me oh my god  #I swear sometimes I really want to be productive  #and actually do my homework  #but then I sit at the computer and it's like my brain shuts down  #I can't concentrate and every little thing is a distraction  #and I can't process what I'm reading or make sense of the words  #it's terrible
