I didn’t know menstrual blood made you important and confident.
IT’S JUST MENSTRUAL BLOOD. It’s your uterus refreshing itself every month. It’s your body going like “oh okay, no baby this month either!”.
It doesn’t make you a feminist revolutionnaire, alright?
I have an idea. Why don’t we all start saving our body fluids and excretions in jars? And take pictures of them, and of us expelling said fluids and excretions out of our bodies? We’d be all so artsy and confident, amirite?
No. That’d be fuckin sick and disgusting. Our body gets rid of them for a motherfuckin reason.
Menstrual blood ≠ the rest of the blood running through our body. Although it closely resembles blood, menstrual fluid actually comprises a mixture of tissues and secretions from inside the uterus including water and mucus from the uterine glands, blood from capillaries feeding the endometrium, and the glandular tissue of the endometrium itself. So, the “it’s natural and we all have it inside us” speech does not count.
