- Let me tell you a story. For a long time, I wondered why my personality never seemed to change during my period. I wondered what other girls were talking about when they claimed that they became "moody". Many years later, I became a psychology major and read about a study that proved to me how correct I am all the god damn time without even trying. Apparently, an extremely low percentage of women actually experience these symptoms (moodiness, etc.) The "bitchy woman on her period" is a western invention, for the most part. If you ask a woman from China what she experiences during her period, "moodiness" and other similar symptoms are not on her list of ailments. But you're probably saying "NO HYAENA. I'M UNFOLLOWING BECAUSE I DIDN'T READ YOUR ABOUT ME SECTION. I DEFINITELY EXPERIENCE MOODINESS". And you're probably right. Sometimes I do too, but only when I have terrible cramps. Anyone in a high amount of pain is an irritable bastard, regardless of their downstairs anatomy. Now I if I dug through a million boxes of shit I could site all of this and give you the exact percentage of how many women legitimately experience these symptoms due to hormonal crap and not just because pain makes you mean. But what I'll say next is pure speculation on my part: what if this apparently western idea of the "bitchy woman on her period" was created to devalue their anger? Did I just discover the origin of the popular male derailment tactic known as "geez change your fucking tampon"? If so, I patiently await my Nobel Peace Prize. -Hyaena13
at the end of All Yesterdays (the extremely good book about imagining and illustrating dinosaurs in complex speculative ways i was talking about yesterday) there’s a section where they prove the point about the fact that we need to be more open to imagining skin coverings and fat/cartilage deposits by illustrating modern-day animals as if a nonhuman paleontologist from millions of years in the future reconstructed them using the just-skin-stretched-over-the-skeleton-and-muscles method that unimaginative paleoartists use with dinosaurs
with results like:
and i love it so much because it absolutely unquestionably proves the point the book is making
