The Periodic Table.

Remember the first 20 elements on the periodic table? Hydrogen, Helium, Lithium, Beryllium, all the way down to Calcium. Lmao, I don’t know book. Don’t get used to this.

However, today is not about chemistry. This is a message of pain? Or some sort of activism bullshit for my fellow members of the accursed female gender.

We are unlawfully subjected to bleeding every month, all in the name of celibacy and living a life that will lead to Jesus. I thought He already bled and died for our sins. Are periods really necessary?

For those of you who don’t know, the science behind menstruation is simple. A woman produces eggs. Those eggs are meant to be fertilized. When they aren’t, they shed to give room for the production of more eggs. The unfertilized eggs leave the womb, travel down the fallopian tube to the vagina and the end product is blood.

Basically, the only way to avoid periods is by getting pregnant. You’d also like to know that labor pains are ten times worse than cramps. Fascinating.

Painful and gory as periods might seem, there were days when some of us had to beg the gods of the seven seas to even see a tiny drop of blood. Ironic, isn’t it? Y’all complain about how stressful periods are and engage in activities that could lead to reproduction. I mean, what do women want?

I’m not a huge fan of my gender, but periods are one of the things we go through that we don’t necessarily deserve. Female exhibit A could bleed for 7 days. Female exhibit B could bleed for just 3 days. Female exhibit C might not experience cramps. Female exhibit D gets hospitalized every month because the pain is unbearable. Female exhibit E could change pads 5 times a day (and Always is so fucking expensive). Female exhibit F doesn’t even finish one pack of sanitary towels throughout the whole process.

Meanwhile, somewhere in the middle of the earth, one stupid female exhibit has the balls to fornicate, when it’s pouring red, while another female exhibit has sore boobs, humongous pimples, mood swings, diarrhea and cramps, all at once. I wonder how men feel, knowing they’re God’s favorite specie.

I’m really sorry if this is too detailed and if you’re going to read this, don’t do it while eating. This is something I feel like I should have said earlier, but better late than never, right?

With love, warm hugs, pads and painkillers for my queens,

Oluwatumininu.

Side note : I have so much anger and hate directed at Eve, because that bitch is the literal cause of all our problems. You had one job! Just one. I also heard a rumor that she’s in heaven. Siri, play me “Abori n tayin?” for the angel that let her go through heaven’s gate.
