Menstrual cups. Very cool and environmentally friendly and they’re way easier to insert than they look. 

Period sex. Chuck a towel down and get amongst it fellas.

Getting your period just when you’re about to head to the Albany St Pharmacy for a pregnancy test. A beautiful nightmare. 

Jacinda making period products free in schools. Cheers Jazzy that’s good cunt af!

Boyfriends that bring you chocolate when you’re on your period. You will never get it but thank you for your efforts <3



Men who refuse to buy period products. Like fuck off bro WHO CARES. When I say toxic you say masculinity x

Period poverty. Tons of girls can’t go to school when they get their period because they can’t afford sanitary products, which contributes to the gendered education gap. Really not a fan of that one.

Period cramps. I will bite anyone’s head off who tells me it’s not that bad. I’ll fucking KILL you Kyle.

The fact that there aren’t sanitary bins in every bathroom on campus. No one chooses to get their period! People who use male and accessible bathrooms also menstruate. It’s no issue at all, just make life easier for everyone.

Getting your period on a Friday afternoon and just KNOWING you’re not bringing anyone home from town this weekend :(
