Periods are really not that bad. At worst, they’re an inconvenience. You’re a little uncomfortable, your stomach might hurt every now and then, you could feel a bit down or cranky, but that’s it. I’m sick to death of hearing people complain about the unbearable pain and agony they suffer through every month. If your period and the symptoms that come with it are truly so bad that you are literally unable to move or are throwing up, GO TO THE DOCTOR. Your period is not compulsory, you can go on the pill or other medications to control it or block it altogether. And quit campaigning that women should get the days of their period off school or work - women have been getting on with their lives, period or no period, literally since the beginning of man.
Also, stop complaining about ruined clothes - BLOOD RINSES OUT IN COLD WATER.

Lol. Ahahahaha…

you tell that to the people who have PCOS

"IT DOESN’T HAPPEN TO ME, SO CLEARLY THESE OTHER WOMEN ARE LYING ABOUT THEIR HORRIBLE AGONY!”

This is hilarious.

And yeah, why don’t you come say that to someone with PCOS? We’d have some lovely words.

Five bucks says this was written by a dude. Because, holy crap, I can’t believe another chick would be that insensitive about something a friend of hers most likely goes through.

My period a few months ago was literally so horrible that I had to crawl on the floor to get around the house and I was sweating because of how much pain I was in, even WITH STRONG PAINKILLERS. Wow.

Your period is not compulsory, you can go on the pill or other medications to control it or block it altogether”

EXCEPT SO MANY POLITICIANS ARE TRYING TO KEEP US FROM GETTING THE MEDICINE THAT HELPS US BECAUSE THEY THINK IT PROMOTES PROMISCUITY AND BAD MORALS.

Why the FUCK do you think that women fight so hard for birth control pills? And for it to be covered by health insurance? Not only is it our fucking choice on if we want to have sex or not, but without birth control, I am in AGONY for 3-4 days out of 7 and cannot go past an hour without needing to go to the bathroom to change things. 

I’m lucky enough that birth control controls my period. I don’t have any conditions like PCOS that make my period worse, I’m just on the end spectrum of “your period is normal, but its gunna suck” For others, they need birth control so that it doesn’t feel like someone’s ripping their uterus out and gnawing on it and instead feels more like someone just stabbing them repeatedly so that they can THEN go on heavy painkillers to try and deal with the pain. Also, side note: most side effects of heavy painkillers make you seriously groggy and they don’t want you to drive. 

Another side note, my roommate has epilepsy. Now i don’t know jack squat about epilepsy, but she’s told me that sometimes her cramps are so bad that it can trigger a seizure. She’s woken up a couple of times from the pain, only to have a seizure and throw up. If you knew this was a possibility, would you go outside where this could potentially happen in front of a lot of people/on stairs/WHILE DRIVING or would you take a day off and do your work at home where you can better control it? Periods don’t just cause cramps and whatever, they can trigger other conditions to act up as well WHICH CAN BE SERIOUSLY DANGEROUS.

Pretend women have completely free access to birth control and its covered by health insurance. My roommate can’t use traditional birth control because it completely negates her seizure meds, so there’s drug interactions that women have to deal with too. What if you’re allergic to the medicine? What if it causes even WORSE side effects than the symptoms you had before? 

I’m not even going to bother explaining how “feeling a little cranky” begins to cover it. Periods mean hormone surges which means various mood swings as your body balances everything out to make sure that your uterus is functioning properly. Hormone surges affect moods. Some girls get more of a surge than others. Some girls are just more sensitive to these hormonal changes than others. 


Most of the time us “feeling a little cranky” is us flabbergasted at the absolute ignorance that people like you have and the rage at the “oh you’re mad, you must be on your period” like our anger is only justified if we’re on our period and isn’t valid (but thats a whole other issue)


As for blood rinses out in cold water? How about when you leak onto your jeans in the first hour of school? Are you suggesting that I go to the bathroom and rinse out my jeans on cold water, and then go to class the rest of the day with a WET CROTCH? Because I’m not gunna have enough time to sit with my pants under the hand dryer until they dry. 

Blood doesn’t even always rinse out in cold water, more just rinses out in cold water. It depends on the fabric, and you have to rinse it RIGHT AWAY. Most of the time girls wake up with their periods, after the blood has been there for HOURS. So there’s underwear, pants and potentially sheets stained because you didn’t even know your period even started.

Don’t even get me started on the fact that in order to keep the blood clean and off clothes is that we have to buy expensive pads or tampons, which are either basically diapers that you have to sit in and feel like you pissed yourself all day and worry about leaking, or a wad of cotton that you shove up in your vagina and worry about leaking.  

And yes, women have been “getting on with life” for as long as we’ve had periods, because we’re BADASSES. We are TOUGH and we are STRONG. But women in the past have also wanted to take breaks due to periods. Don’t try and fool yourself into thinking that in the past women were just like “Oh it appears i’ve gotten my period” because a spot of red appeared on their undergarments AND THATS IT. No. They went through the same thing but most of the time had to be like “well FUCK” and tough out the day, and then cry from the pain in private. They would want a break then just as much as we do now. 

Before making sweeping statements like this, why don’t you crack open a human repro book and actually look at the female side of it, and all of the problems and complications of periods that are DOCUMENTED.

And if you are a female instead of a male, OP, count yourself blessed that you think periods are easy to deal with. You could have had it so much worse.

Reblogging again because YO^^^

Seriously!! I have a pretty painless period but my mom and her sister(my aunt) have periods that give them migraines and cramps so bad the vomit from it on occasion. So I’m preeeetty damn sure they’re not “just making it up”  Yeah some people have periods where it’s like pop  an advil and you’re good to go but other people have excruciating pain. Don’t be a motherfucking period cramp, be sensitive and understanding, just because you’re not doubling over in pain doesn’t mean someone isn’t 

I’ve just finished my period for this month and the first two days I was on were spent in bed suffering from horrendous cramps, migraines and vomiting due to pain. Popping the pill doesn’t do magic, believe me I have tried many different types of pill and they are definitely not a quick fix or a magic cure. My mum suffered exactly the same as me, as did my aunt who used to pass out with the pain. 

Also yes blood may wash out in cold water but do you know how embarrassing it is when you stand up only to find that you have bled through your clothes on to a seat cushion or that you are constantly worried that you may smell cause you’re on, or that you can just start crying at any given time for no reason or that you hate everything for no reason. 

I have friends who have have an easy time of it when they are on their periods but not every woman is the same, just cause one woman seems to have an easy time of it doesn’t mean that the next woman will. 

Educate yourself.

eenzymes asked: Do you have any thoughts on Bucky being genderqueer?

defcontwo:

somehowunbroken:

defcontwo:

I….do not have any in specific (aside from yes, tell me more) but if anyone else has some, I’d really love to hear it. Paging moonyinthesky or somehowunbroken, maybe? 

yes yes yes let’s talk about genderqueer bucky.

let’s talk about genderfluid bucky, growing up in brooklyn where it gets frigid in the winters, bundled up in coats to keep warm. and when asked, “hey, who are you,” can answer with anything - however zie’s feeling that day, james or rebecca or just bucky, because it’s four below zero and everyone’s teeth are chattering, and everyone’s so bundled up that nobody can identify anybody, so it doesn’t matter who zie is, not to anyone but zirself.

let’s talk about androgynous bucky, with slicked back hair and suspenders and a little rouge stolen from ma’s dresser drawer, going out on the town and turning all the heads and loving every second of it.

let’s talk about agender bucky, no sir no other name, just bucky, because that’s what fits and that’s what works and who decided that your parts mean who you gotta be, anyway? so no, you don’t get to know, and you’re gonna have to live with it.

let’s talk about bigender bucky, who can effortlessly switch from being one of the guys when they’re gathered around the campfire, just another one of cap’s soldiers, to being steve’s girl when they retire to their tent. and steve’s always steve to bucky, but sometimes bucky is james and other times rebecca, and steve always, always asks first.

let’s talk about femme bucky, who envies the way agent carter wears lipstick around base, who doesn’t know how to say thanks when peggy doesn’t make a big deal about slipping an extra tube into the new pair of socks he requisitions. steve draws on his nylons for him, a thick line up the backs of his thighs just like the ladies at home do because it’s too expensive to get the real deal, and when he’s alone with steve he’s got his nylons and his lipstick, and it’s better armor than the stuff they gave him for war.

let’s talk about bucky hating the society that zie’s forced to conform to, hating the war but not minding so much the freedoms it affords a soldier in the trenches, and waking up years and years into the future, recalling every horrible thing that zie’s been forced to do, having to deal with it, but finally, finally being in a time that’s more accepting of who zie is - and who zie isn’t.

let’s talk about genderqueer bucky. let’s keep talking about zir.

tyler seguin appreciation post (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ 

xekstrin:

A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.

The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.

Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.

The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.

"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."

That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Since you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.

the funny thing about dril posts is that they actually do have a structure to them– they hit a kind of conceptual caesura halfway through, a point where there’s no inevitable logical connection between what’s been said and what’s still to come. here, the first sentence didn’t need to result in the second, yet it’s not “lol random” either; the speaker is angry about his boss’ draconian ferret-kissing policy, and reacts in kind, and even the reference to a “screen saver” reminds us that we’re in an office. it’s a narrative progression that, despite having an internal logic, alienates its punchline from its setup. who the hell is this person?

one thing i love about @dril posts is how they all seem to take place in a universe that is somewhat like our own, but with the habitus of white middle america taken to a bizarre, absurd, but strangely logical conclusion. take this one, for instance: 

so we have our setting: a security guard protecting the american flag in the betsy ross museum, something almost archetypically american and middle class. but once again the first part, or setup, for the punchline, “fucking the flag,” careens the joke into an alien punchline that still, given the setting, makes sense. @dril’s security guard character imitates a sort-of cop-talk, the banter of a security guard, “buddy, they wont even let me fuck it”. you can imagine a similar response from a guard at any museum, but we’re talking about Fucking the American Flag, here. 

i really love @dril. 

it’s astonishing that a human being thinks of those posts. some person, someone out there whose existence we have to infer, because all we know is that those posts occur and they must be coming from somewhere. “the @dril​ tweeter” resonates as “the beowulf poet” does, except beowulf (which i’ve only read in translation, so i’m not an authority) has never made any use of the english language as baffling and sublime and somehow primally interlaced with the stuff of human consciousness as “IF THE ZOO BANS ME FOR HOLLERING AT THE ANIMALS I WILL FACE GOD AND WALK BACKWARDS INTO HELL.”
