Ladies PLEASE! We MUST calm ourselves. In our fervour of becoming feminists, we have evolved back into the Stone Age!
What is this, hunh? Are we effin’ savages? Grunting at each other and then knocking someone on the head with a club? I know it sounds tempting but just stop! Let’s all of us just take a collective deep breath, just unbunch our panties and look at this.
I mean SERIOUSLY, what is this, eh? How far have we gone in trying to be independent and ‘carefree’? There was a post depicting my period as gushing flood of blood. I said ‘meh’. Then there was another describing my period cramp as being scratched on the inside by hands with 6 foot nails of wickedness. I said ‘hmm’. Then there was this post that said I was simply daft for saying ‘I am down’ when on my period. I was like ‘How is that going to make me feel better or worse?’ Apparently those 3 words would change me from

I was so damn put off by the headline that I never got around to reading the post! What the hell was it going to say? How admiring throngs watched her BLEED to the finish line? EEWW! WHY? Why would anyone want to do that? On top of it, apparently, APPARENTLY she showed a middle finger to ‘period shamers’. Look honestly, I think the only middle finger she has any right to use is the one she needs to shove up her pee-wee to stop leaking onto her state-of-the-art running shoes! If she had been swimming across the Atlantic or something like that, she would’ve been eaten up by sharks before she could’ve said period cramp… Good riddance I say!
Why the hell would anyone want to run halfway to what-the-hell-was-she-thinking WITHOUT the notion of basic hygiene? For herself?
So NO ok. Just no. Damn! I’m sorry for the poor schmuck who had to hand her a medal or certificate while making sure he doesn’t get anything on himself that would later implicate him in case she was stabbed or some such.
All I want to ask her is WHY? You’re running for Breast Cancer Awareness and you don’t want to promote hygiene? You say you ran like that to express solidarity for ‘my sisters who don’t have access to these basic needs’. Don’t you think it would be more fruitful to, maybe, join a group that DOES help women get access to these necessities? You say ‘it’s there and we fight it every day’. Look really, the only fight right now is in a better part of the world trying to figure out if this is for real.
So NO ok. No #respect. No #imawoman. No #whatever. I say #getsomeperspectiveonhowproblemsaresolved or #areyouserious or #youvegotalittlesomethingonyourwinkwink.
Please woman! You REALLY need help. And a tampon. So just #shutthehellupandtakeashower.
