CULTURE OF SILENCE
“My stomach hurts”!
This is a very common sentence said by every other women all over the world while she is on her period. Does this hurting make her unhygienic and impure?
Today on Menstrual Hygiene Day, I would like to raise some points where the world is making one of the natural tendency a big TABOO.
Is pooping not a natural tendency? You discuss your ‘potty’ easily with your near ones but why can’t a female share that her stomach hurts because she is on her “Periods”.
Our elders think that while a girl is on her “periods”, she is impure as she is excreting waste that can make her surrounding unhygienic and make other also infected with that “VIRUS”.
You want a Bleeding Girl when you wish to marry her so that she can raise your family, while she is bleeding you treat her like a ghost and disrespect her, is that what humanity stands for?
Not only elders but men in our society too make fun of our natural tendency that happens with every girl. If her pants have stained you laugh instead of helping her. WOW! This is what you do to make someone ashamed of themselves and humiliate them for your happiness?
Don’t you have a life of your own to deal with?
At last, this is my humble request to all the readers and viewers to work on their non- sense thinking and let a women live with her head held high and respect her for her pain that she suffers as it’s a gift of god to every women and you are the “unlucky one”.
