I hereby declare that hashtags will now be known as fagtags.
Friends and enemies go get yourself a drink ’cause we are gonna be here for a while. The Great One goes down the rabbit hole and comes out in an alternate reality where strong independent fish-bicycle womynz are perfect and can do it all. Except for acquiring tampons.
Period poverty is keeping womynz down.
Lack of access to period products continues to be a barrier to girls’ education, and we’re committed to raising awareness, providing period products to those in need and sparking change. Together we can create a country where no girl loses school because of her period.
. . . . .
In a recent Always Confidence & Puberty Survey it was revealed that nearly one in five girls in the US have either left school early or missed school entirely because they did not have access to period products. At puberty, many girl’s confidence plummets, with the onset of menstruation marking the lowest point.
Don’t want them gurls to lose school. Now if only someone will explain to me how one can “lose school”.
How can a girl’s confidence plummet when women are perfect?
Emily’s father can’t afford tampons for his daughter. Tampons must be really expensive. Or maybe Emily’s father loves something else more than he loves Emily.
Additional money shot: This video has 10,354 views and a whopping 136 likes. Looks like Fagtag End Period Poverty is really taking off and raising that awareness.
Won’t be long now until menstrual equality is achieved.
PERIOD was founded in 2014 by two 16-year-old high school students with a passion for periods. To date, PERIOD has addressed over 850,000 periods through product distribution and registered over 600 campus chapters in all 50 US states and in over 30 countries.
Our chapters bring PERIOD’s mission to life in local communities – serving menstruators in need by distributing tampons, pads and menstrual cups; running educational workshops to change the way people think, talk, and learn about periods; and fighting for systemic change towards menstrual equity.
Tampons must be really expensive considering how many womynz and gurlz can’t afford to buy any. I wonder how much it cost per month to provided the needed support for menstruation.
Just $2 covers an entire menstrual cycle.
Yes. I can see how that would be out of the financial reach of womynz what with the wage gap and all. I sure hope someone steps us to raise awareness about period poverty.
PERIOD was founded in 2014 by Nadya Okamoto and Vincent Forand when they were both 16-year-old high school students. Nadya was inspired to start the organization after hearing real stories of homeless women and period poverty while her family was experiencing housing instability. Nadya recently published her debut book PERIOD POWER: a Manifesto for the Menstrual Movement.
Womynz need a manifesto to explain the bleeding of their cootches.
Bio: Nadya Okamoto, who grew up in Portland, OR, is 21-years-old Harvard student on a leave of absence. She is the Founder and Executive Director of PERIOD (period.org), an organization she founded at the age of 16. PERIOD is now the largest youth-run NGO in women’s health, and one of the fastest growing ones here in the United States.
Since 2014 they have addressed over 800,000 periods and registered over 500 campus chapters. In 2017, Nadya ran for office in Cambridge, MA. While she did not win, her campaign team made historic waves in mobilizing young people on the ground and at polls.
Nadya recently published her debut book, Period Power: A Manifesto for the Menstrual Movement with publisher Simon & Schuster, which made the Kirkus Reviews list for Best Young Adult Nonfiction of 2018.
Most recently, Nadya has become the Chief Brand Officer of JUV Consulting, a Generation Z marketing agency based in NYC. Most recently Nadya was named to InStyle Magazine’s “The Badass 50: Meet the Women Who Are Changing the World” list, along with Michelle Obama, Ariana Grande, and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
And what do other parasitical attention whoring losers have to say about her book?

“If you’re looking for a way to turn your anger about gender inequality into action, this book is a must read. You’ll learn a great deal about menstrual inequities and the intersectional impacts created because of our failure to address them. This is a how-to handbook on what you can do to change that.” Source: Former state Senator Wendy Davis
“Period Power, much like it’s author Nadya Okamoto, is insightful and impossible to ignore. I’ve found empowerment in her prose, and inspiration in her lack of shame. This book teaches adults and youths alike to be unapologetically proud to bleed. If someone you love has a vagina then Period Power is required reading.” Source: Whitney Bell, activist and founder of Kidd Bell

And now for a review from a true progressive.
The blurb uses the phrase “people who menstruate,” which initially made me excited, because so often when talking about menstruation, people only talk of it as something women experience, when in fact, not all women menstruate, some men do, and so do some nonbinary people.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t really pan out very well within the book. Okamoto and the text mention women (of course) and nonbinary people (yay!), but trans men are basically never mentioned, and even the mentions of enbies are few and far between. They say that it’s important to be inclusive, and as I mentioned, the book does a great job of inclusivity…in all areas but gender. For a majority of the book–I’d honestly say about 95%–menstruators are referred to as women, which is harmful, upsetting, and downright ridiculous when Okamoto is clearly aware of the complexity of gender.
There’s a single, small section in the last 25% of the book, written by a trans person, which was nice to read. But right after that miniscule section, there’s a whole paragraph where Okamoto goes off about using inclusive language…and then goes right back to saying “women” a paragraph or two later.
There was an obvious attempt by the author, but it just failed in such an epic way as to be even more hurtful than if she’d just excluded trans and/or nonbinary people altogether.
Some men menstruate.
This is the level of understanding that women have about human biology. This is why I (and other intelligent men) reject the idea that women should vote, sign contracts, have jobs and most laughable of all – be engineers.
We aim to advocate for systemic change through policy and legislation regarding menstrual equity. Reaching out to state representatives, canvassing, and lobbying are all important in making period poverty a mainstream issue and one that our legislators will prioritize. Our Chapters have the opportunity to stand as the face of PERIOD and advocate for legislative change in their respective states by meeting with state representatives. They testify on issues such as free and accessible period products in all school bathrooms, prisons, shelters, etc., as well as ending the Tampon Tax in the remaining 35 states, and work on the local level and meet with school administration to advocate for free period products in their school bathrooms.
No. You aim to not get real jobs and to literally Hitler parasite off the blood of women.
Women and young girls who menstruate are ostracized from basic activities, like eating certain foods, or socializing, all over the world. The cultural shame attached to menstruation and a shortage of resources stop women from going to school and working every day. Period poverty is the lack of access to sanitary products, menstrual hygiene education, toilets, hand washing facilities, and, or, waste management.
. . . . .
Young boys benefit from menstrual hygiene education, too. Educating girls and boys on menstruation at an early age at home and school promotes healthy habits and breaks stigmas around the natural process. Achieving menstrual equity means access to sanitary products, proper toilets, hand washing facilities, sanitation and hygiene education, and waste management for people around the world all.
What are the main causes?
Menstruation is stigmatized around the world. In Nepal, for example, menstruating women are seen as impure by their community and banished to huts during their cycles. While menstrual huts are technically illegal, families continue taking the risk because myths and misconceptions are deeply rooted in Nepalese culture. The non-governmental agency WoMena conducted a study in Uganda and found many girls skipped school while on their period to avoid teasing by classmates.
. . . . .
The first step is to normalize menstruation and destroy taboos around the natural process. Then policy must be enforced to make menstrual products, sanitation and hygiene easily accessible. Activists and advocates are demanding that governments prioritize menstrual equity policy, but historically the issue has presented a challenge.
Banishing women on the rag to confinement with other women on the rag. Sounds enlightened to me. I’ll support that law.
Many girls do not have complete and accurate understanding of menstruation as a normal biological process. Educating girls before their first period — and, importantly, boys — on menstruation, builds their confidence, contributes to social solidarity and encourages healthy habits. Such information should be provided at home and at school.
Women don’t understand much of anything. This entire podcast is testimony to that fact. These nine things “you” supposedly didn’t know about menstruation is testimony to that fact. Only women would be ignorant of the nine things on this list. Women can’t shut the fuck up about vagina, titties, pink and abortion yet they know nothing of their own biology.
Here is a bonus not covered in the podcast. I found this in the links from the Emily video. If you desire to be traumatized watch this.
I can’t decide if I would fuck them so they would shut up or if I wouldn’t be able to fuck them as they are so fucking annoying. Fagtag Zoomer Gurls.
I think they’d be hot if they were not talking.
Don’t forget, these girls are allowed to vote. Democracy is the problem not the solution.
Bonus bonus material. Fuck me running Rachel. This is 354 pages of evidence that coloured people are inferior to whites. I may have to do a podcast on this.
Girls and women have been known to have been so desperate for sanitary products that they have traded sex or favours with men to be able to obtain them.
All women of all colours trade sex for everything they have in their lives. It’s time to stop pretending otherwise.
