Protip? If you have a period, you are biologically a woman. See how easy that was?
Via Daily Wire:
This week, HuffPo guest writer Cass Bliss detailed “what it’s like to get your period when you’re not a woman.”
Bliss, a “nonbinary trans educator,” first went viral with her #BleedingWhileTrans campaign in 2017 to prove the biologically impossible claim that “men have periods, too.” The activist recently created a music video (see below) discussing the struggles of having your period while not identifying as a woman in a quest for “menstrual equity” for all. For example, the colors of tampon boxes are pink and there are no discrete garbage cans in men’s bathroom stalls to dispose of tampons and pads.
“I am a nonbinary trans menstruator ― someone with a uterus that bleeds monthly, but who identifies outside of the fixed categories of male and female,” explains Bliss. “Because of that, I have to navigate the challenges of getting my period every month in a world that refuses to acknowledge that not everyone who gets their period is a woman, and not every woman gets their period.”
