MENSTRUATION (AND ITS ABSENCE)
Unfortunately most of us have grown up with a demonized idea of the rule, and not only because it is blood: the rule hurts, it is dirty, it is a nuisance, and marks the beginning of a journey to no one knows where. Many would prefer bats to pink butterflies that wrap advertisements for pads and tampons.
