Exactly what I thought when I read the books lol
Dad: hey I’m gonna go grocery shopping do you need anything?
Me:contemplates wether or not I should ask him to get me pads since I need them desperately
Dad: anything at all?
Me:uh… Yeah…. Can you get me some pads
Me: Are you serious? Wouldn’t you be embarrassed?
Dad: Natalie, I’m a 56 year old man who has been buying pads for your mother for over 20 years. No I’m not embarrassed.
Me: But I thought guys get squirmish when we ask them to buy this stuff for us
Dad: boys are squirmish. Men will step out and buy you as many pads and tampons as you need. A man will understand that you cannot control your cycle and that this is a natural bodily process. So, if you ever find a guy who’s too embarrassed to buy you pad just bleed on everything he owns.
Me: OMG DAD
This made me laugh at first, but then I remembered that I’ve met girls who get very embarrassed when seen buying pads or can’t even ask other girls for them when needed. It is sad how we’ve been made to believe such natural bodily processess are something to feel ashamed for and therefore must forever be concealed and never to be spoken of out loud.

Emiliano Zapata Spoke and Wrote in Nahuatl
Part of a message written in Nahuatl to supporters of the Mexican Revolution sent from the headquarters of the Liberation Army of the South in Tlatizapán, Morelos, on April 27, 1918 by its Commander in Chief, Emiliano Zapata:
“…Axcan ocachi que me aic monequi ti mo zepampalehuizque ica nochi to yolo ihuan ica nochi totoyoquiliztli itech inon huei tequitl de necetiliztli mahuiztic, huelneli de necate tlen qui pehualtihque netehuiliztle tlen qui yolóhpia chipahuac nin pehualoni ihuán ámo qui poloa nin neltocaliz de cuali-inemiliz…”
“…Now more than ever we need to help each other with all our heart and with all our efforts in this great task of unity, which is truly the work of those who got into the fight, to keep their heart clean with those principles and to not lose faith in a life of respect…”
“…Ahora más que nunca hay necesidad de que nos ayudemos entre nosotros con todo corazón y con todo nuestro empeño en esa gran tarea de unificación digna, que es verdaderamente la tarea de los que se metieron a la lucha, que conservan limpia en su corazón esa empresa y que no pierden la fe en una vida de respeto…”
I have to learn Nahuatl, or Purhépecha… or both.
