My body can grow babies and I can kill them if I want to

My body can grow babies and I can kill them if I want to. My body is sexual. My body is sexual for me and my pleasure. My body is not sexual for you. My body is beautiful. Every day I stare at my body with wonder, even when my hair is dirty and my makeup is smeared all over my face. My body is

You can report us

You can report us. You can follow us just to harass us. You can send us violent and abusive comments. You can tell your children not to be associated with us. You can feel alarmed, terrified, or angry. You can shut us out, or send criticism. We will still fucking be here. We will learn to set stronger boundaries than ever. We will connect with

Solstice Bleeding

Winter Solstice. My period was late and came today. Of course. And the day was so unseasonably warm that I could walk barefoot outside and bleed into the forest floor. Also of course. Blessings are everywhere. This is the best first day of my period I have ever ever had. I don’t know if it’s the herbs I’m taking or my boundary setting or the

I used to spend my time worrying about what other people thought of me

I used to spend my time worrying about what other people thought of me. I used to keep lists as a 12-year-old: what are all the ways in which I could be more attractive? What are all the ways in which I could make that person like me? How could I make my body more acceptable? How could I hide my blood, my skin, my

“You post some weird shit”

Two things I hear frequently: “You post some weird shit” and “I’ve never shared this with anyone before.” I think they’re related because I often hear them together. Something along the lines of: “Thank you so much for listening. I used to judge you for the stuff you posted but I’m not going to now and I’m so glad I reached out.” I don’t mind

My blood came today. Eighteen days late.

My blood came today. Eighteen days late. I did not think I was pregnant. My body said: relax. Maybe it was a combination of sickness and antibiotics and herbs and late ovulation. Maybe it was that my body wanted to bleed with the full moon instead. For a year I have bled exactly with the new moon. They say that means nurturance. I wonder if

Cervix art

Bleeding Cervix ~ acrylic, nail polish, and menstrual blood on watercolor paper 😂😍 Today I did a much softer mask than usual. Typically I use a menstrual cup to collect it; this cycle my pussy was a strong “no” to anything holding blood inside her at all. It was even more beautiful in a sense, I could dip my fingers inside me and find all

You are a jungle-child

You are a jungle-child. Your body is meant to writhe in pleasure. Your body is meant to howl. Your body is meant to be covered in blood. Your freedom of expression has been Stolen from you. The witches are back. The witches are back. *** If you’re someone who gets a period… that’s beautiful. If you’re someone who supports your partner during their period… that’s

I will do this until people are no longer shocked by it

I will do this every month until people are no longer shocked by it. I will do it until little girls stop being taught that the natural functions of their bodies are disgusting and unclean. I will do it until women stop feeling like they can’t have sex on their period because it is gross. I will do it until we stop being embarrassed that
