What if men had menstrual cycle

Many are of the opinion that these strange university protests that entail the putting up of sanitary products in public spaces, starting in Jamia and spreading to Jadavpur, are not in good taste. But why should they be?

If menfolk happened to have menstrual cycles instead of women, this would hardly have occasioned social shame for them. Instead, they would have celebrated their stains, declared the blood sacred and exhibited with considerable pride the sanitary pads that bore the signs of their power. Women’s menstrual cycles, on the other hand, have been deemed so hateful and their blood so impure for so long, that it is finally time for women to rediscover the sacrality of their own blood.

Social stigma

When men open their shirts in public, scribble slogans all over their bodies and walk with pride, they are heralded as harbingers of true revolution — people have felt awed and inspired by such sights, poets have written paeans in their praise, artists have immortalised such scenes on canvas and filmmakers have made memorable cinema of such landmark protests. When FEMEN activists do the very same thing, and display their nudity adorned with political slogans, policemen arrive in leaps and bounds and forthwith drag them all to the prison.

Male bodies inscribed with political will are things of beauty, and female bodies of the same order are objects of social stigma, shame and infringement. It’s because a women’s nudity disarms the conservatives, it makes them uncomfortable. Rupi Kaur’s photograph documenting menstrual blood opened a can of worms. Instagram removed the photograph and instantly, social media were alight with debates. I think the photograph was a stroke of genius. So was Deepika Padukone’s video, My Choice. Women are undergoing a sudden awakening everywhere. This awakening is becoming more and more necessary for the survival of mankind as a whole.

The thought of one half of the species brutally repressing the other half by virtue of sexual discrimination, through various tools of torture ranging from sheer brute force to social conditioning and superstition, for thousands of years, is perhaps more frightening as any other human rights violation. This awakening has been long due. The society mustn’t run by muscles, it must be run by liberated minds. It is ludicrous to think that the primary law lurking underneath sexual and gender discrimination is nothing but the discrepancy of physical force between the male and female of this species.

When I described in detail, in the first part of my autobiography, My Girlhood, the events leading to my first menstrual period, or later, how I was sexually abused, many disapproved of this with the sneering civility characteristically belonging to the bourgeoisie. I pity them, and I have never brought myself to pander to their socially curated tastefulness.

Banned book

My Girlhood was banned by the Haseena government in 1999. It’s still banned in Bangladesh. The middle classes are of the opinion that no decent woman belonging from a good family could have described, in gory details and with utter “shamelessness”, the indignity of the sexual abuse she had suffered. Some famous male authors have personally told me, “You know, the book was very well written, but you shouldn’t have described the sexual encounters. That was vulgar”.

Oh yes. When women write about the sexual crimes perpetrated against them, they become offensive; when they tell stories belonging to their own bodies, they are deemed notorious. But when men offer up depictions of female nudity and sexual intercourse, they become the grand documenters of high art.

Moral guardians

It seems that women’s bodies are the copyrighted properties of male authors and artists, for if women were to explore such areas, they would surely be no more than sluts. When women refuse to abide by these rules instituted by men, when they sidestep the rules laid down about what to say and when, and how far to go with it, this society’s men feel some amount of righteous indignation.

If this society hasn’t defamed you as a slut and whore, if you haven’t yet been able to confound at least a few of the society’s self-appointed moral guardians, then there isn’t much hope for you as a feminist. The named, on the other hand, are those who shall change and alter the fabric of this rotting state, and bring on a new evolution that shall signal a new kind of egalitarian atmosphere.

I therefore salute the students who have stepped forward to protest on behalf of all women who are stigmatised during their menstrual cycles. It is the duty of educational institutions to spearhead the revolution against superstitions, stigmas, social and sexual discrimination and spread social awareness and illumination amongst the common people. It is their moral obligation to take up the fight for womens’ rights, and they have done a good job of it.

Women can be as stupid and misogynist as men

There is a hell of a lot of women are as bad as men.


A Republican lawmaker Cathrynn Brown in New Mexico introduced a bill that would require victims of rape to carry their pregnancies to term in order to use the fetus as evidence for a sexual assault trial or face charges of “tampering with evidence.”

Under House Bill 206, if a woman ended her pregnancy after being raped, both she and her doctor would be charged with a felony punishable by up to 3 years in state prison: The bill says, “Tampering with evidence shall include procuring or facilitating an abortion, or compelling or coercing another to obtain an abortion, of a fetus that is the result of criminal sexual penetration or incest with the intent to destroy evidence of the crime.”

Cathrynn Brown should know that a DNA paternity test can be done as early as the end of the first trimester of pregnancy. No woman needs to carry her pregnancy to term for it.


New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez advanced a proposal to require women who become pregnant from rape to prove they were forcibly raped in order to qualify for childcare assistance.

Some say, “it establishes in state law a narrow definition of rape. It puts a heavy burden on women who have been raped and are now struggling economically to support a child.” Another opinion is, “it would force women who have left violent domestic partnerships, who were date-raped, who were impregnated as a result of incest, or through other “non-forcible” but nonetheless equally violent and denigrating means of sexual violation to first re-engage with their abusers to seek child support, putting control of their lives back into the hands of someone by whom they were violated in the most profound sense of the term.”


Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN-7) has introduced the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act (H.R. 61) which would stop the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) from providing federal family planning assistance to abortion businesses until they certify they won’t provide and refer for abortions. She said, “As a woman, I believe America deserves better than abortion. America shouldn’t celebrate abortion and our taxpayers shouldn’t subsidize abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood, who profit from the destruction of human life with taxpayer money. It’s fiscally irresponsible and morally indefensible.” The bill would “prohibit family planning grants from being awarded to any entity that performs abortions.”
What a pathetic anti-choice freak!

These women do not believe in women’s human rights. Seriously, as a woman I am ashamed of these women!

Justin Bieber’s mother is brainwashing women to go against abortion.

“We really need to get over this love affair with the fetus and start worrying about children.” – Joycelyn Elders

Justin Bieber’s mother is now brainwashing women for not to have an abortion, because their babies can become world famous & billionaire like Justin Bieber.

Pattie Mallette, better known as Justin Bieber’s mother, has been very open over the years about her anti-abortion stance. The single mother got pregnant while she was still in high school, but after converting to Christianity, she decided to keep the child, which worked out pretty well considering he turned into the most famous pop star in the world.

Earlier today, Mallette announced she’s executive producing an anti-abortion short film that will be shown at various events across the country starting on February 28. Entitled Crescendo, it was conceived and shot with a goal of raising $10 million for pregnancy centers across the country that will advise women to consider options other than abortion. Here’s what Pattie had to say…

” (I want Crescendo to) encourage young women all over the world, just like me, to let them know that there is a place to go, people who will take care of you and a safe home to live in if you are pregnant and think you have nowhere else to turn.”

Mack Rawden from Cinemablend wanted to know whether or not people would watch this short film if it was available for free.’What do you think? If Crescendo was available on YouTube, would you watch it?’
My answer is, I will watch the film to see how far Justin’s mother has gone to brainwash women against abortion but I will never agree with them who think women should not abort their fetuses because fetuses become babies and babies can become Biebers. They can become Biebers, but they can become Monsters too. Women must have an abortion if they want to have an abortion. Their body, their choice. Nobody has the right to force women to go against their choice.
