Parineeti Chopra responds to a male reporter who claims to know nothing about periods (menstrual cycle). [X]

SO IMPORTANT.

I started my period when I was 10 years old. But we didn’t tell my grandma for three years because she subscribed to the “old traditions”, where a woman on her period could not enter the house, not even to bathe. Where she had to sit outside in front of the house (where the whole village could be witness to her shame and isolation) for the entire duration.

My friend started her period unexpectedly while we were at our local temple (in America) for dance class. Asking around if any of the parents had pads (all of them apologized and acted like adults about it), I thought surely the front office has a first aid kit. Don’t they have pads? When we asked, not only did they not have any, when one of the women gave one from her purse, the head secretary told us “There are men who need to use the first-aid kit, ya? So we don’t keep period things there.” Not even ibuprofen (which has so many more uses than period pain).

There are girls in India and Nepal (and other places, but I just read an in-depth piece about the situations in Nepal) who have to go to the “period hut” when their period comes and not leave until its over. They can’t wash and dry their cloth pads in the daylight, so they do it at night when the pads won’t dry properly before their next use, making them vulnerable to infection.

It is incredibly important, especially in India, to break the taboo surrounding periods. Break the secrecy around an event that happens to almost every woman, every month for literally half of her lifetime. Break the hiding, break the cover-up, break the SHAME.

Just break EVERYTHING. So little girls can go to school every day of every month without feeling ashamed. So women can work every day of every month to provide for their families without being glared at. So single fathers can confidently take care of their daughters’ health. So that women can talk about how terrible their period is or isn’t and give each other advice on how to deal with it without looking around to make sure men aren’t listening.
So that Whisper doesn’t have to be called Whisper, it can be called SHOUT. It can be called PROUD. So that we don’t NEED to fucking WHISPER about our bodies and our health.

It’s ridiculous how men think periods are disgusting. Like I’m sorry that my body is normally working and able to welcome your beautiful and wonderful baby. I am very not sorry to be a woman and to disgust you.

This came up on my Facebook feed. I would not have pegged Time Magazine as being one to whine about how men are being excluded. Yes, we know men have problems too, but we’re trying to have our own conversation, we don’t need it derailed.
Edit: Here’s the link to the actual article. I only skimmed it but it made me twitch. http://time.com/3432838/emma-watson-feminism-men-women/ 

Feminist: “Why are we talking about men?! Stahp!1!!”Emma: I have no idea why people think Feminists don’t care about men! It’s so odd!

atleast Time magazine journalist have some sense instead of hoping on the feminist bandwagon

Thank god. I was honestly getting tired of all this feminist apologist nonsense. Though I guess a lot of people don’t know much about the evils feminism has done, so be sure to go to
aaasources
so you can spread the info.

OMFG!!
My jaw literally dropped reading this. 
I cannot believe Time ran this.
The way she cuts to the meat of the matter in this article just blew me away:

Men must, indeed, “feel welcome to participate in the conversation” about gender issues. But very few will do so if that “conversation” amounts to being told to “shut up and listen” while women talk about the horrible things men do to women, and being labeled a misogynist for daring to point out that bad things happen to men too and that women are not always innocent victims in gender conflicts. 

#YesAllWomen hastag, anyone?

A real conversation must let men talk not only about feminist-approved topics such as gender stereotypes that keep them from expressing their feelings, but about more controversial concerns: wrongful accusations of rape;

Omg, she said it….

sexual harassment policies that selectively penalize men for innocuous banter;

Omg, she fucking said it….

lack of options to avoid unwanted parenthood once conception has occurred.

Oh my FUCKING god, she FUCKING said it!!!

Such a conversation would also acknowledge that pressures on men to be successful come not only from “the patriarchy” but, often, from women as well. And it would include an honest discussion of parenthood, including many women’s reluctance to give up or share the primary caregiver role.

I’m still amazed at this…
…maybe even a little hopeful?
A world without feminist bullshit where the the issues she listed are actually addressed would actually be a great world to live in.

thank you TIME magazine

Pro tip: if you’re signaled to pull over (whether you’re male or female) and you’re in a place that has no witnesses, turn your hazard lights on to acknowledge the officer’s siren, and drive to the nearest gas station or populated area. This is accepted protocol by every agency. You are not obligated pull over until you can do so safely. This includes personal safety. Understand your rights, brothers and sisters. There are disgusting examples of authority in this world.

Completely sickening.
