This is realllllllllly weird lmao
This is really NORMAL.
Except we never see it-so it is terrifying and uncomfortable when it happens.
(Mostly because people would laugh or be unkind)
I own a sex shop. Once a woman bled on our chair during an interview. She was horrified and felt ashamed because it was in some way unprofessional. We weren’t bothered. We said ‘what better place to work on being ok with your body than at a feminist sex shop?’
Bleeding is normal and dealing with it is one of the most pervasive ways women are complicit in their silence.
Some men bleed too. How would you react to that? For many men who are Trans the act of bleeding is a security threat.
Fuck off with your lolz.
Reblogging again for above commentary ^^^^^
So happy that the above commentor included trans* men.
Blood is unsanitary as fuck. While you’re at it, why not let people piss/shit themselves at will? Why feel the need to clean it up? It’s natural and it’s their bodies, right? You really think it’s fucking okay for someones bodily fluids to be dripping down them or left on public chairs? No! Holy shit! I don’t even like seeing people leave sweat behind! Blood isn’t just this super pure okie-dokie thing that we’re bothered by for some reason, especially menstrual blood. It’s got weird vag-mucus, skin and tissue, possibly diseases (possibly horrible and fatal ones), bacteria can grow in it, oh my god. OH MY GOD NO.
Bleeding out without some kind of pad or tampon in public is so fucking unsanitary. If someone were to be kicked out of a public establishment for KNOWINGLY GET BLOOD ON THINGS THEY FUCKING DESERVE IT! THAT. SHIT. IS. NOT. SANITARY. NO. NOOOO. IF A MAN BLEEDS ON SOMETHING IN PUBLIC THAT IS A BAD THING AND NEEDS TO BE CLEANED UP WITH BLEACH! IF A FOOD SERVICE WORKER CUTS HIMSELF HE DOESN’T JUST KEEP GOING AND PREP YOUR FOOD HE CLEANS IT AND PUTS SOMETHING OVER IT (BECAUSE A BANDAID AND A PAD ARE BASICALLY THE SAME FUCKING THING) AND STILL WEARS GLOVES JUST TO MAKE SURE IT DOESN’T GET ONTO ANYTHING AND THAT IS A GOOD THING, BECAUSE BLOOD IS REALLY DANGEROUS. THAT. INCLUDES. PERIOD. BLOOD.
DO WHATEVER YOU WANT IN YOUR HOUSE I DON’T GIVE A FUCK BUT DON’T BLEED ON SHIT IN PUBLIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GOD DAMN IT.
im pretty sure the point is that people are led to feel ashamed of periods when they shouldnt keep it clean sure but seriously it happens to half of everyone and no one should have to be that upset about accidentally bleeding on something
like you wouldn’t be ashamed if you cut your hand and bled on yourself you’d still clean it up but you wouldn’t be embarrassed
