Discussion of news topics with a point of view, including narratives by individuals regarding their own experiences

I’ve struggled with menstrual problems (heavy flow, severe cramps, polyps) for many years, and as with so many horrible things in life, find that it’s helpful to make fun of them.

I dislike the discourse around periods that I often see on social media, shaming women for using coping mechanisms like eating chocolate and, God forbid, avoiding yoga on the first day of their period.

I wanted to imagine a world in which people who menstruate can eat junk food and smash things if they feel like it. Also, I’ve had Menstrual Sponge Bob in my sketchbook for years and was just waiting for an opportunity to draw him.
