Furthermore, men need to stop expecting women to maintain this illusion. These are natural parts of life that aren’t going to end any time in the near future. Females are not fragile creatures that are predisposed to be perfectly-coiffed or smell like flowers and cupcakes. Few things are more pathetic than a man who cringes at the word, “period.”
Ladies, live out loud if you want to. Feel free to complain about the gross stuff your body does, because it’s yours. Or not. But don’t feel compelled to stay on this pedestal for the sake of some man’s precious vision of a perfect woman.
