Q

Do you understand what Arielle Scarcella means when she says "Some MEN also have them [menstrual cycle] but they at the time are still female enough to have a cycle"? Because I'm having a tough time reconciling the wording as cissexist and just plain problematic.

Hi Dani,
Thanks for the question and yes I think I do understand. She has been taught that women get periods., its what the world is taught. That is why I believe in education. She just need to be educated on this and I do not think she is intentionally saying this to be hurtful. It's what she has been told. Now it is up to us to make that change. Its hjust my opinion. I come from the place of teaching. Not getting angry if someone doesn't know. Lets teach. Thanks Buck
