Video: Woman Smears Period Blood on Her Face... Because Patriarchy?
Ladies, help a brother out. Most of you reading this aren't feminists, but you may know someone who knows someone who owns 50 cats. When it comes to new ideas, the name of the game is changing hearts and minds. You think "A." People think "B." Your goal is to convince people they should think "A."
What heart or mind is changed by menstruating in a cup and giving yourself a facial? Also, why?
Also, I just threw up in my mouth a little.
Yazmina Jade is a self-proclaimed blood witch and spirit healer who’s dedicated to ‘reclaiming the Feminine through embodiment and sisterhood.’ A few days ago Yazmina chose to apply her own menstrual blood to her face, as a way to connect with her own body.
‘We have shamed ourselves as women for bleeding, men have placed this taboo on us for bleeding. It’s a time to reclaim our power through reclaiming that which comes naturally for us.. It’s a blessing.’
As a way to reclaim the power of menstruation, Yazmina now does a ritual each month, which involves connecting with her womb while she bleeds, using a menstrual cup so she can see her own blood, and then using her menstrual fluid in her garden or applying it to her face so she can learn a greater love and respect for her body.
In the past, you could chalk this up to one single crazy person. But leftists are obsessed with the red river lately (see HuffPo Celebrates “Powerful” Photo Showing “Men” Get Periods Too and BuzzFeed Presents Feminist Video On Painting… With Period Blood). Just because... reasons? Patriarchy? Low on web traffic that time of month? They're closeted vampires?
I consider myself an open minded guy. I'll buy you chocolate. I'll let you yell at me for no reason five days out of the month. I'll even go on a Target run because I got confused when you said "red dot special."
Just don't expect me to not mock you for playing with Aunt Flo when she comes to visit.
