i’ve talked about my love/hate relationship with menstrual cups over and over again but i’ve never really fully shared my personal experience with them, have i?
many people just cannot grasp what suffering from anxiety means, and let me tell you, it ain’t that easy to explain.
sure, cups are an awesome invention helping the planet, your wallet and your own vaginal health all at once, but perhaps they’re not for everyone.
we keep on talking about making public spaces safe(r) and meeting needs and demands of everyone, so why not transfer that to everyday life?
a lot has been said that on my blog i feel the need to kinda fix now. to explain. to denounce, to redefine, to let go of.
we’re told to use menstrual cups but our physical (dis)abilities, religious views, or personal beliefs are overlooked. we’re told to opt for natural, non-toxic products but our budgets or access to those items are not taken into account.
if you’re worrying about something, saying it loud—or publishing it in the online sphere—kind of makes the problem way less bad.
even though it seems like we’re experiencing a sex revolution of sorts, what’s really being liberated is mostly “sex with someone”, and not “sex with oneself”.
unfortunately, your responsibilities won’t wait until you feel better, and who know when that will be, right?
being pro-sex, or “sexually liberated” as many like to call themselves, does not mean you are enlightened and entitled to judge anyone who does not practice the same lifestyle as you.
a checklist of what to do to keep up with being a person when you hit the rock bottom.
many don’t realize how much trouble can a single word, or a single, scathing sentence to be precise, cause.
the taboo surrounding talking about menstruation is definitely loosening up, which is absolutely great, but i would still like to address a somewhat problematic issue related to it.
it sucks when you realize how important it is to make conscious shopping choices, but your own budget prevents you from it.
those who have been shamed for being promiscuous now shame those who aren’t like that, which, in the end, leads nowhere near liberation as it simply creates another way of oppression.
a very brief summary of important info about the most common STDs, just for you, from me.
amidst a mental health crisis, i drew these little awards/badges; to reward myself for the hard work. and trust me, that was hard too.
it is not only important to stop slamming our own bodies, but also to act as a body positivity ally and and fight against self-hate.
would you like to live more sustainably but don’t know how to start?
it is okay to have moments of not feeling good in your own body, or to feel enraged by the amount of food you eat or whatever – as long as you realise that none of the reasons behind it are actually true.
“yes” to sex does not mean “yes” to everything.
“you’ve lost weight” is not a compliment!!!!!!!
so, you ate a bit more than you usually would in the past few days.
what’s the big deal?
