I should probably pump the breaks on all the hate talk, since this is a normal body function that happens to most women every month for the majority of their life. It is no different that pooping (yes, ladies poop), or blue balls, or headaches. All normal run of the mill bodily functions. Part of becoming a feminist though, and to be frank, an adult, is to admit and understand what you do and don’t like. You don’t have to like your bodily functions. True story.
