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.
you tell that to the people who have PCOS
I would just like to point out that while yes there are meds to lessen a period or block it the stronger these meds are the more unhealthy they are
birth control that completely stops a period is extremely unhealthy for the female body and will seriously fuck it up
many women with ovarian cysts or poly-cystic ovarian syndrome or endometriosis have period cramps so painful that they are literally bedridden or require high-level pain medication if they even want to attempt to live a normal life during that week—popping midol won’t do a damn thing
not~ to~ mention~ the cost of visiting an OB-GYN and the fact that many insurances will not cover a trip to an OB-GYN unless it isn’t a yearly pap smear (and some just don’t cover it at all) AND the fact that many women do not have insurance coverage at all and therefore cannot afford the outstanding prices of visiting a specialist
so to suggest that women just simply “get meds” to fix their biological problems is disgusting and insensitive
and it’s inaccurate to insinuate that women “since the beginning of man” have never gotten off work/daily chores for their period because many a culture in the past and some still now allow a woman to cease all activity to rest during menstruating
also blood that appears on your clothes overnight or during the day when you’re nowhere near capable of suddenly stopping everything to clean your clothes off typically stains no matter how much cold water you use I cannot tell you how many undies I’ve lost to this ok
shut your fucking face
me everytime a character in a movie has to get a few drops of their blood for some ritual bullshit (via jtoday)
WHILE WE’RE AT IT, why do people try to cross those skinny bridges over lava/chasms/whatever by walking upright. IT’S CALLED CENTER OF GRAVITY. get on your hands and knees and crawl across that thing. HUG IT. SCOOT YOUR BUTT ACROSS. “but i look stupid!” lalalala but we’ll avoid that ~dramatic moment~ where you almost fall over and die because your damn fucking self wanted to look COOL
and stop yanking IV lines out of your arms the minute you wake up in the hospital
That is a broadsword, why are you fencing with it
You must learn her.
You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.
You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.
And, this is how you keep her.

This is the Google trend for the search query “Quadratic formula”
It repeats in the same pattern every year. Down in summer, up in September, down again in December and up again in spring time before going down again in the summer.
And so it goes on forever.
