i’ve been doing some reading on this so some thoughts
women, men and non-binary people shpuld not be ashamed of shark week. it’s normal and while it is a pain, it’s a necessary evil (unfortunately). we should be able to speak about this horrible, horrible thing we go through without someone being disgusted. it’s good to bring awareness to unusual periods so people can get help, and no one should feel uncomfortable asking to go to the washroom or getting a day off because it feels like a pack of wolves are ripping up your insides. that being said, if some people don’t want to talk about it, they shouldn’t have to. it’s a personal and painful time that makes a lot of people who get it feel icky, so there shouldn’t be pressure.
tl;dr: if you wanna talk about it, great! if you don’t, great! we should just make everyone comfortable when it comes to thus topic.
Please tell us why you'd like to report this post
people come into our lives for a reason
bringing something we must learn
we are led to those who help us most to grow
& we help them in return
i don't know if i believe that's true
but i know i'm who i am today
because i knew you
