So the other day I was outside my Chemistry class and one of my friends was looking in her bag for a tampon and asked me if I had one she could use. Just as I pulled out my little ‘period bag’ with my supplies in it one of the boys from the class next door walked past, saw what was inside and said “GROSS!” really loudly. I then asked him what was wrong with a natural bodily function before the teacher called me inside saying I was “wasting class time.” This really peeved me because I wanted to see what the guy would’ve said back! I don’t get why so many men call periods gross and disgusting when women (or anyone with a vagina basically) have zero choice on getting a period.
