Tampons Are a Form of Rape, Solution Is #FreeBleeding

Tampons Are a Form of Rape, Solution Is #FreeBleeding

A new trend has come along, supported by radical feminists and vampires. According to this philosophy behind the trend, women who are menstruating should not be ashamed of their bleeding. We should not be hiding our natural bodily functions, or feel ashamed by them. 

Well, I'm here to say that I'm tired of being ashamed. I'm tired of hiding what is part of me, and I can say that I fully support this movement. Free-Bleeding is the way forward. It allows me to have some control over a part of my life, finally. I mean, I'm tired of shelling out money each month to buy tampons and pads. I'm tired of not letting others know what I'm going through. I want to share this experience with everyone, every single month of the year. 

There are finally some people making sense. Of course men have created these so called "sanitary" napkins and such, they want women to be ashamed of what allows us to know we are fertile. Why should we hide something that makes us unique? A red stain for 5 days a month, won't kill me. And a little bit of extra laundry won't kill me. Fuck men, and fuck hiding. I am woman here me roar.

Now, this is what I would say if I was bat shit crazy. I can tell you now, I am not. 

I can't understand what would compel a woman to even entertain this idea. If you have a gash on your leg, do you just allow it to stand and bleed? What is the issue with feminists and being deemed "sanitary." There is nothing remotely sexist about plugging your blood leaking vagina for 5 days.

Periods aren't fun, they aren't pretty, and basically something that women don't really need to share with everyone. 

By this logic, we should all shit and pee ourselves in public because society has made us believe that these things are disgusting. Someone deliver us from fourth-wave morons-- I mean, "feminists."
