True story.

March 24, 2010

In the Battambang jail, finishing up a workshop with Theary about the menstrual cycle:

Meg: So, do we need to be embarrassed when we have our periods?

Extremely Enthusiastic Participant: No!

Meg’s thinking: This is awesome, they’re totally getting it, starting to accept their bodies, seeing that their vaginas aren’t dirty and gross, recognizing that the menstrual cycle is natural and actually a cleaning mechanism…

Meg: Great! Why not?

Extremely Enthusiastic Participant: Because then people know we haven’t been having sex!

Meg’s thinking: Or we’re slut shaming. Awesome.
