Apparently, it is a beautiful thing, because of its cycle’s potential to create new life. However, something’s potential is not the foundation of its quality or beauty. It is only the potential – nothing more, nothing less. So, while the process that involves menstruation could produce something beautiful, I argue that menstruation is not, in and of itself, a beautiful thing.
Quite frankly, I’m not a fan of it, almost at all, but I do think it is kind of miraculous that a person could lose so much blood, and so often, – and, for me, it is apparently even more blood loss than usual – without passing out on the pavement, ill beyond belief. It is somewhat miraculous that women do not end up in the hospital every month, due to blood loss from menstruation. Perhaps it is one of our magical powers as females. Yes, we can bleed blood, and be totally fine afterward. (I feel like I’m in Zoolander right now, with that mocking line.) 😛
Anyway, for some women it is totally a no biggie. For some, it is one of the most difficult times of life, when it shows up each month-ish. And, for others, it is somewhere in the vast expanse between the two. (For me personally, I am guaranteed to have very little sleep for two nights in a row, and to have an incredibly strict bathroom schedule for those two days, with the occasional extreme discomfort in the mid-region.) Whatever the case, it takes something extra, something special, something powerful for females to manage it all effectively, to get up and go, no matter what the body brings. So, show some acknowledgement of the nonsense with which females have to deal so often, and go do something nice for the females in your life. They deserve it.
