When a woman has a discharge, and the discharge in her body is blood, she shall be in her menstrual impurity for seven days, and whoever touches her shall be unclean until the evening. Leviticus 15:19-30. In this day and age it's ridiculous to suggest that the perfectly natural bodily function of having a period is dirty and impure, however I'd still prefer a glass of ice water
Taboo? Don’t complain about life when you’re kid is born with a disability then Yeah, let’s make America like the rest of the world. We have it so bad here. UniteWomenOrg And in some villages women sleep in a outdoor period box. No insulation. Just 4 wood walls n a floor. In extreme weather conditions they are banished 2 these boxes. Some have died. Generations of women shamed b/c men 'scared' of a little blood.
What women are put through everywhere is scandalous. Everywhere! i have empathy for women who have to live in ignorance and superstition, they deserve better but men are the ones making their lives miserable even here in america. praise female women for what they go threw'''brite side if not for you'' life would fade away'' give an nurcher life
Oh dear. I don’t think most American women give it that much thought. It’s a pain until it’s gone and becomes known as a blessing, I kind of don’t want to know that there are groups of women that let men tell them about their bodies. It’s such bs.

Unions have out lived their usefulness. This is why southern states with auto manufacturers are doing some much better than states with unions. Abolish them all.
