Free bleeding is utilized by women that recognize their cycle and feel comfortable with going out. Tampons and pads are expensive, you're demonstrating classism. No one is literally blowing chunks out of their vagina. Women tend to wear thick underwear or normal underwear when they know it's light. Period blood isn't toxic waste periods aren't scary. Educate yourself before you begin making posts on this.
I’m just gonna shut this down.
I appreciate the fact that period blood is not toxic waste or anything to be ashamed of. However, allowing period blood to spill on to other materials and potentially onto surfaces that other people will touch is unhygienic. Why do you think they have to stop sports events whenever somebody spills blood on the floor? Why shouldn’t you use another person’s needle when injecting drugs? Freebleeding has the potential to spread HIV, Hep B, Hep C, and other blood-borne diseases and pathogens. I’m not demonstrating classism. I agree that tampons and pads should be cheaper so that the most poor women can afford them, and I know that this is a problem for women in other countries, particularly in Africa where women often had to drop out of school because their periods made them miss too many class days because they would have to sit in a special tent for women who had their periods until it was over. And you see, they weren’t even freebleeding. Indigenous women and early europeans made their own tampons. Now that we have more technologically advanced, sterile objects that make our lives easier, why shouldn’t we use them?
And yes, sometimes women do, in fact, blow chunks out of their vagina. You’re seriously telling me you’ve never had to deal with clotted period blood before?
P.S. I hope you know that this whole rise in the “popularity” of freebleeding is due to a bunch of trolls on 4chan trying to make fun of feminists.
