I bet you have a black friend as well . Look , its not about whether things like this still happen , i am sure it does . Does it mean men everywhere are to blame for the stigma attached to menstruation , i think not . You really want to know what we think . Every male i know says thank god we aren't female , we don't judge , we are just thankful we don't have periods , babies and probably a host of other things that don't come to mind ATM . Also be'er sheva is land locked .
It's also a part of the Jewish faith.
In fact, women are to be seperated from everyone else and often leave the home during that time of month and go to mikvehs until their menstrual cycle is finished. They are considered impure and unclean during that time,

I am not quite sure if this helped the issue she was attempting to bring light to or not, but I am puzzled at the use of the word "gross" multiple times in responses. I should have hoped people have moved beyond that categorization of it.
It is also a natural thing, not a disease or affliction caused by injury. It simply comes out, with no way to stop it. One has a chance of putting it off a bit until you find a bathroom in regard to other 'fluids'.
Why is it embarrassing? Why should it be a mystery?
