On bleeding

by Angela on April 16, 2009

Yes, bleeding. Because that’s what it is.

“The way I had learned to deal with my bleeding ways was a reflection of what our society teaches us about everything cuntlovin’ and female and rhythmic and sexual. These are things which must be somehow ‘controlled’ with shame, embarrassment, taboo, violence, or drugs. In order to serve the destructive tendencies of our society, everything that is cuntlovin’ must be sequestered away far into deep recesses of the collective unconscious somehow. Therefore, like our cunts, our blood is weird, messy and ugly. The negativity surrounding menstruation is an illusion that falls, falls, falls away the instant perspective shifts”
