Periods and Girls

It’s funny ..

Here are few funny statements I have heard that a girl can not do when she has her periods

  1. She can’t touch God [ this is the most common one, that everyone knows and most of them believes it ]
  2. She is not supposed to touch her husband [ husband becomes weak ]
  3. She is not supposed to touch papad (its an Indian food) [ it becomes red when you roast it ]
  4. She is not supposed to touch other people in the house [ I guess others will die ? ]
  5. She is not supposed to be touched by others [ oh i dont have any reason for this ]
  6. She must wash her hair on the third day [ don’t ask me the reason… please ]
  7. Her clothes are not suppose to be washed with others clothes [ oky I wont give reasons for every sentence ..because thrs no logic ]
  8. Even after her clothes are washed .. others wont touch her thm [ thn wht.. are you going to keep her cloths hanging? ]
  9. The dish in which she has had her food wont be touched by other till its washed [ c’mon, if you don’t touch it, how will it be washed ever ? .. you are as it is not letting her move from one place ha .. ]
  10. She suppose to sit in a corner and not move anywhere [ !!!!!!!!! ]
  11. She is not supposed to touch the water filter
  12. She is not suppose to touch pickle
  13. Basically she is not suppose to touch anything in the kitchen
  14. She is not supposed to touch plants [ they will die… (what crap?) ]
  15. If some one is dead, the girl who’s periods are on must not go near thm, or in that house and near the people in that house [No clue why]

I cant recollect other things .. but i m sure I will … and will update the list of the things girls cant do in periods

Apart from all these stupid things I have mentioned … what I am trying to say is

Its really imp and necessary to educate world that it is biological thing for women and not a curse..
Please please please don’t treat girls as if they have done some sin … set them free… don’t keep your orthodox thinking as it is..
grow up … the world and time is moving faster then anyone can even imagine….
