A friend of a friend posted a link to an article about Periods for Pence and called it TMI.
Well, sir, fuck you.
My freshmen students know what bukaki is but we can’t talk about periods? Fuck you. The state of Indiana sentenced a woman to feticide for a miscarriage and is, simultaneously, reducing women’s access to reproductive care and you think it’s gross to talk about periods?
It’s tempting to blame fringe element of the conservative party or Pence’s pandering to them but the real problem is grown ass men who decide they can’t handle talking about periods in public. That’s the juvenile, sexist thinking that forecloses robust discussion about women’s lives and reproductive justice which is the real reason bullshit laws like this are allowed to pass.
