Sexism and sushi don't flow

Posted on Thu, Apr 14, 2016 at 4:00 AM

To the man at the table next to me at the sushi restaurant last week: Telling any woman "That's enough of the period talk" is extremely inappropriate, let alone a group of women you don't know and who never asked for your opinion. I'm sorry if overhearing the words “menstruation,” “flow” and “vagina” was so highly disturbing to you that you couldn't finish your meal...oh wait, I'm not. I hope you come to realize that menstruation is a totally normal and acceptable thing to talk about. It's something half the people in the world experience on a monthly basis. I also hope you remember that you came out of a vagina. sincerely, —Menstruator
