Waking up uneasy and uncomfortable, looking at my grey pajama whispering red coloured stories of my successful failure to know my body's mood; the white bed sheet of mine, screaming in dark red, complaining about me being a woman; that's what a period stain has to be. Right ?
Something you can not talk about
Well at least not with boys
I really wanna know, when back in school, we girls were made to sit in a separate room and were told that now we are of an age that the Period Monster can enter our life any day and we are are supposed to deal with it silently, patiently and of course without telling the boys
Why WHY boys of the same age were not grown up enough to know about the biology of a female human body?
Was it just to ensure to take their curiosity to a level where they start believing in half-baked information and assuming in myths ?! And why were girls both at school and home introduced to periods as a monthly tsunami in our vaginas that we need to feel bad out, crib out and never talk about.
Tell me if any girl out there could actually tell her male friend that she just got her first period
Leave friends. Tell me if you could go to your own brother and father.
Do you realise what woman excrete for those 4 days every month, is what a forms protective layer around the life for 9 months that gets nurtured in a woman's womb.
How can something so important and so beautiful be something women are not proud of or talk about ?! If I be fortunate enough to have a daughter, she and I are definitely going out for a date on her first period to celebrate the embarkment of her womanhood. I will make sure she comfortable enough to ask her dad to go out and buy tampons and sanitary napkins for her.
Dear men, if the prosaic functioning of a female body is something you find inappropriate to talk and write about, GROW UP.
And dear girls, don't make your man believe that those four days of the month is the only time when you deserve chocolates and extra pampering. Well, you deserve it on every fucking day. So does he, even if there is no chance of him having cramps or a vagina in the first place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
This one of the many reasons why you should train your grip.

My Body, my Choice?
2012 starb eine 31-jährige Zahnärztin, an den Folgen einer Blutvergiftung, nach dem ihr eine medizinisch dringend notwendige Abtreibung verwehrt wurde.
Bisher waren Abtreibungen in Irland verboten - selbst bei Vergewaltigungen, Inzest oder schweren Missbildungen des Fötus. Einzig legaler Abtreibungsgrund ist ein lebensbedrohlicher Zustand der Mutter.
Übersetzt heißt das, dass z.B. schwangere Krebspatientinnen auf eine Chemotherapie warten müssen, bis Gefahr für ihr Leben besteht.
Oft ist eine Behandlung dann zu spät und die Frauen sterben.
2018 wurde per Referendum in Irland beschlossen endlich dieses Gesetz zu ändern.
Hier in Deutschland ist eine Abtreibung immer noch illegal (§218).
Straffrei bleibt man nur, wenn man bestimmte Fristen und andere Bedingungen einhält.
Diese Möglichkeit, wie wir sie heute haben, wurde uns von unseren Müttern und Großmüttern erkämpft. Wir leben privilegiert und gewöhnen uns daran - und dadurch gefährden wir, dass wir dieses „Privileg“, was unser gutes Recht sein sollte, wieder verlieren.
In Zeiten von AfD, Lebensschützern die Gynäkologen erfolgreich verklagen und bedrohen (§218a), Frauen die eingeschüchtert und angehende MedizinInnen die diesbzgl. nicht ausgebildet werden -
müssen wir uns das bewusst machen und wieder kämpfen - für uns und unsere Töchter!

TRUSS empowerment initiative is a wholly female non governmental organization that seeks to bring women out from behind the curtain. As women, we grow, get an education, create a career or a business and in most cases get into marriage and home making. We naturally move into these roles with no preparation save the little we get from our parents, siblings and peers. However, the experiences many have show that if young girls, young wives, mothers and career women had mentors regarding their careers, their family life, their walk would have been much easier.
We at TRUSS are dedicated to the empowerment of women, to bring about the fulfilment of dreams they had, they have and are yet to have as strong and powerful members of society though they do not realise it yet. We aim to create fun, help widows, sponsor the education of talented young girls and provide women in general the tools they need to achieve greatness.
The main objective of TRUSS is to bring out the best in the female person at any level and guide her towards achieving her heart’s desires and telling her story of success in a lively and positive environment.

If you try nothing else this week, just for one morning, get up and watch the sunrise 🌅 I PROMISE you that it will be worth it. There is a sort of unexplainable magic about the golden hour ✨ #thehealthcoachproject
Summer after senior year in high school, 3 weeks before I left to go to college, I was working as a swim teacher at a public high school. In the diving well across the pool was a diving club practicing. “I can do that. I can dive. I’ve been diving into pools for years. How hard can it be?”
So 3 weeks before college I decided I wanted to learn to dive competitively and I wanted to compete at the Division III level in college. So that day I walked over and introduced myself to the diving coach and signed up for class.
I learned to hurdle. I perfected my tucks. I did too many v-ups to count. And I started learning the 6 dives I’d need to compete in college.
As a varsity swimmer in high school I was used to hard work and competition. I was used to pushing myself.
What I wasn’t used to was getting stuck.
But when it came time to learn the inward dive tuck that’s where I ended up. I belly flopped more times than I can count. I couldn’t get the rotation down to go in upside down. And I couldn’t comprehend tucking in toward the board so my head almost hit the edge. It just wasn’t working.
But I tried every day. I kept trying. And eventually one night when my coach had walked away for a minute I got it. I pushed off the board, tucked, rotated, and went in upside down. I was floored. My coach came back in and I showed him and he was ecstatic. It felt amazing to finally complete something I had been working on for a long time.
I think a lot about this girl now. The girl who would stand on a board and repeatedly throw herself into the water to get something right and I think about myself now.
I have essentially walled myself off from the world because of my body, my size, my capability, and my fear of people hearing me breathe hard.
My body is not capable of what it once was. And as someone who’s competitively played sports almost all her life it feels like the end. Like I’m stuck. Like there’s no way to come through it.
And then I think about that girl again. And I think about how it was possible the whole time. She just had to change the way she looked at the dive. She had to work through it.
And I tell myself I’ll get through this too.
Here I am. Happy, proud and grateful of my body. I hope you can take some time today to appreciate yours too. Even if for a second.
This body has been through so much and it will go through much more. That's okay though. As I am strong in mind and heart.
Enough with the perfection. Enough of setting unreachable body standards. Enough ffs! 🔥🔥🌪 (📸: @badassprints

That moment when your ex blocks, mutes and deletes you off of everything but they still see you in real life looking fabuuuuuuulous💁🏾♀️💁🏻♀️💁🏼♀️💁🏽♀️💁🏾♀️ #ourwomensvoices
Even if Ford can survive the possible persecution for having gone up against a nominated Supreme Court Justice, she will likely never regain the anonymity that she once had, particularly if Kavanaugh does get confirmed. Living in a country that disrespects women is hard; living in a country that has anointed the man who attempted to rape you to the highest judicial office in the land may be impossible.
For the rest of us not directly in the line of fire, this is an urgent moment of truth. Whether or not Kavanaugh will be confirmed will likely depend on whether the de-misogynization of institutions that has been the work of the #MeToo
movement has pushed male conservatives in the Senate to consider the political necessity of leaning less toward accused men and more toward victimized women.
If Kavanaugh does become the fifth conservative Supreme Court justice, the future of women in an America whose institutions and leaders continue to be entombed in misogyny is devastatingly bleak. If #MeToo
can only unseat entertainment executives and television anchors, and fails against Supreme Court nominees, then it and the women who support it will continue to remain at the periphery, permitting the center, occupied by men, to hold. —Rafia Zakaria, “The Fate and Future of Christine Blasey Ford”

“My father’s definition of freedom was very basic. If you stretch out your arms, and move around the room, that’s your freedom. When you touch somebody else, that’s not freedom anymore.”
"Don't let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity.” — Mae Jemison, physicist and astronaut
It's officially over.
I'm ready for fall.

“Julie and the Doll”: 1943. Think of all the Latinx girls seeing this in a Museum and seeing themselves for the first time in a art, in a museum, in a collection. By a woman Pinter. ▫️▫️▫️▫️ Think about the power of that. Love art. Forget all the filter of money for one minute. Know that art can change lives. If only a little bit. For a tiny second.
