i recently realized that if i am passionate about anything in this life, it is encouraging women to drop the fear and loathing act regarding their periods. i realized this whilst turning the comments section of my poor friend's blog into my own little uterocentric soap box. you're a good sport, marx.
there are probably a good deal of women out there who share my views on the beauty of menstruation. i have only met one or two. and that's not to say it's enjoyable to have blood and uterine tissue escaping from your vagina against your will for 12 weeks out of the year. but it's certainly nothing to be ashamed of.
anyway, where this is all really going is Kotex (a brand i have never supported, but in three weeks will get some of my hard-earned tip money) has launched a period-positive ad campaign.
all i have to say is, YES. thank you.
ladies, let go. don't be ashamed, don't be weird, don't view your period as a curse. embrace it, and it will get better. talk about it. we hear enough about boners in this modern life, i think the boys could stand to hear a little more about what we go through. and next month, try to find pleasure in the appearance of your period. i'm interested in opening a dialogue about this with anyone who'd like to.
