Shake ur bake 4 me
This is for all you ladies out there.
the struggle is real
I have a trans man story about this.
Since I’m pre-t I still have my period but since I’m socially out as trans I use men’s bathrooms. One time at the college the family bathroom was taken and so I went into the men’s room to do my business. I tried opening the little pad as quietly as I could manage, but the rustling and ripping sound still happened. I froze in silence because I didn’t know if the other guy in the men’s room heard it or not.
Then after a little bit of silence I hear…
"Who has a bag of chips?"
And in a panic I just whisper back to him “I’m not sharing.”
Then I hear a huff before he finished his business and left.
Okay, but why does it need to be discreet? Why are women embarrassed to open up a pad or tampon in front of other women in a women’s bathroom? It seems like it’s almost like it’s shameful to have your period.
This is singlehandedly one of the weirdest things anyone has said to me. I’ll totally thing of this when i’m drinking cider fireside.
