Stop what you’re doing! Girls can’t do anything on their period

Let alone be president

A man is questioning Hillary Clinton’s ability to be president because he’s worried her period will get in the way.

“What if that time of the month comes and she is sick at the same time?” said the Pennsylvania man.

He’s obviously not trying to be sexist, he’s just genuinely concerned with Hillary’s health and well-being, which has made us come to the breakthrough realization we’ve all been waiting for: Girls can’t do anything on their period.

Thank you kind stranger, for making us all aware of all the things we can’t do because our vagina bleeds once a month.

Girls can’t swim on their period

We’re actually allergic to water.

Girls can’t have sex on their period

Our vagina just automatically puts up a magical shield no penis can get through.

Girls can’t make rational decisions on their period

We’re never right anyway, but boy do the added hormones really cloud our judgement.

Girls can’t play sports or workout on their period

We already have enough liquid leaving our bodies we don’t need to add sweat to the mix. Plus everyone knows our muscles shut down during that time of the month silly.

Girls can’t go to school on their period

For five through seven days of every month all the blood in our brain rushes to the uterus resulting in the inability to learn.

Girls can’t eat anything other than chocolate on their period

You know how we insist chocolate is a food group? Well now you get it.

Girls can’t wear white on their period

The bright color becomes too much for our sensitive eyes.

thank you @instagram for providing me with the exact response my work was created to critique. you deleted a photo of a woman who is fully covered and menstruating stating that it goes against community guidelines when your guidelines outline that it is nothing but acceptable. the girl is fully clothed. the photo is mine. it is not attacking a certain group. nor is it spam. and because it does not break those guidelines i will repost it again. i will not apologize for not feeding the ego and pride of misogynist society that will have my body in an underwear but not be okay with a small leak. when your pages are filled with countless photos/accounts where women (so many who are underage) are objectified. pornified. and treated less than human. thank you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ this image is a part of my photoseries project for my visual rhetoric course. you can view the full series at the photos were shot by myself and @prabhkaur1 (and no. the blood. is not real.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ i bleed each month to help make humankind a possibility. my womb is home to the divine. a source of life for our species. whether i choose to create or not. but very few times it is seen that way. in older civilizations this blood was considered holy. in some it still is. but a majority of people. societies. and communities shun this natural process. some are more comfortable with the pornification of women. the sexualization of women. the violence and degradation of women than this. they cannot be bothered to express their disgust about all that. but will be angered and bothered by this. we menstruate and they see it as dirty. attention seeking. sick. a burden. as if this process is less natural than breathing. as if it is not a bridge between this universe and the last. as if this process is not love. labour. life. selfless and strikingly beautiful.

Girls can’t go out to dinner on their period

Don’t you understand we can’t eat anything but junk food?

Girls can’t be nice on their period

Going from babe to bitch is a vicious cycle.

Girls can’t go for long car rides / flights on their period

Someone please invent a soft absorbent material (preferably cotton) we can use to soak up all this blood for six to eight hours so we can go places.

Girls can’t work on their period

That 80 percent we’re worth on a good day just plummets to zero.

Girls can’t wear skirts on their period

Might as well not give the boys another reason to feel uncomfortable, right?

Girls can’t be president on their period

There’s a 90 percent chance that’s 100 percent bullshit.

"Tonight, we've reached a milestone in our nation's march toward a more perfect union: the first time that a major party has nominated a woman for president. Standing here as my mother's daughter, and my daughter's mother, I'm so happy this day has come. Happy for grandmothers and little girls and everyone in between. Happy for boys and men because when any barrier falls in America, it clears the way for everyone. When there are no ceilings, the sky's the limit. So let's keep going…until every one of the 161 million women and girls across America has the opportunity she deserves to have. Because even more important than the history we make tonight, is the history we will write together in the years ahead." —Hillary

P.S. Hillary Clinton probably hasn’t had a period in 20 years.
