Menstruation revelation: I remember back when I was younger and my mom was menstruating, I saw that the toilet water was red from time to time because my mom would flush her pads down the toilet. I was secretly afraid that my mother was going to die! Looking back, I realize now that all this stress could have all been avoided if A) PERIOD had been there to educate me about what menstruation is and B) PERIOD had been there to tell my mom that pads clog drains. That’s why I’m behind the #menstruationmovement!
