Periods.

SAM_4364

Not so long ago in Sociology, a couple of lads were messing about and they decided to question the tutor about girl’s periods.

Awkward.

Of course she went through the basics but then she went into some detail I’ve not heard about before and it made me question my whole outlook on everything!

So, as you know, on a monthly basis, a girl is supposed to bleed for a few days or a whole week and it should be continuous for.. ever I guess but of course there’s often complications and contraception methods etc etc. Anyway, the week after she has stopped bleeding, she’s supposed to be pretty normal and chilled out, completely themselves. The week following is when they’re most sexually aroused, they be bugging the boyfriends more etc you catch my drift. The final week of the month is the grouchy, annoyed ‘why is the world trying to piss me off so much’ week and then we’re back to the beginning.

Now I realised that this may not apply to everyone but for the majority it is supposed to and this means, for only one week a month, around four months a year, a girl is allowed to be herself. The rest of the year is confusion, pain and a purely hatred attitude. What the hell. This isn’t fair! In addition to this, we’re back to the girls with ‘problems’ and so they’re even more messed up! Also, none of this is including: childbirth, menopause and whatever else struggles we go through in our lifetimes! We have it hard. So hard. And these bodily issues don’t make it any easier!

I got so annoyed hearing this.

And that had nothing to do with my cycle.

…I don’t think.
