In 1986, Gloria Steinem wrote that if men got periods, they ‘would brag about how long and how much’: that boys would talk about their menstruation as the beginning of their manhood, that there would be ‘gifts, religious ceremonies’ and sanitary supplies would be ‘federally funded and free’. I could live without the menstrual bragging – though mine is particularly impressive – and ceremonial parties, but seriously: Why aren’t tampons free?

jessicavalenti: We need to move beyond the stigma of “that time of the month” – women’s feminine hygiene products should be free for all, all the time.

The scariest thing about this post is that I couldn’t work out what was wrong for a good minute until I read them aloud because my brain automatically read them in their correct order

I think that if they make abortion illegal, they should make men deserting women who they got pregnant illegal as well. Because if a woman can’t back out of a pregnancy a man shouldn’t be able to either.

Lessons from the Rain

Move on

two words I can’t manage to follow

a simple concept I can’t seem to grasp

I sit here listening to the rain, the thunder, 

watching the lightning and trying to learn 

from the storm how to move on

to leave behind the pieces of myself 

that are no longer me

(the memories I refuse to give up,

the beliefs I can’t let go)

and become something calmer

lighter than I am now.
