In my day job, I talk a lot about periods. Tampons. Pads. Menstrual cups. What every little quirk in your cycle could possibly mean. But I have to be funny when I do it, and I can tell you, that’s a lot of pressure.
The thing I’ve discovered is that tampons and pads on their own aren’t that funny. What’s funny is how we talk about menstruation. So, Persephoneers, what’s funny about the way we talk about this issue? All the euphemisms? The unending pressure to go horseback riding on the beach while wearing white? Tell us.
