Haha, well thank you! I think he is to.
I don’t think I’ve talked about him on this blog though, so I’m curious as to how you know about him?
Question with 1 note
reblog-blogbloggityblog said: To add to your post about gender neutral period terms,im a genderfluid 'female' and myself and my friends out of respect for me and my gender use the term 'time of the month'.I'm grateful for them and their respect.Just am very proud to know them all
I like the word “menarche” to describe the first period. It sounds cool.
also a great alternative!
okay i am very supportive of trans and genderfluid people as well as people who don’t identify themselves as any gender but jesus christ not using gendered terms has gone too far! i will personally fight your battles for you as i do very often too, but i will not completely stop using genders for the sake of a handfull of people who are not included universally when i’m talking about trivial things such as this. i will respect every person for what they are and when talking directly to them or about them i will use the terms that they are the most comfortable with, but this is getting out of hand
"i am very supportive of trans people but also i refuse to change the way i speak in even the most minor way to acknowledge that they exist. that’s just going too far"
Clue the period tracker app is seriously my favorite thing right now. People with menstrual cycles should check it out! #periods #menstruation #clue #periodtracker
I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -
Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.
Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.
If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.
And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.
Wholeheartedly agree! Get more info on our period page.
