You know, there’s a reason many people think most "modern feminists" are crazy looney tunes and a sex coach in California sure helped that thinking to be solidified.
26-year-old Demetra Nyx thought it would be a great idea to end the stigma and shame around periods. So being a very liberal feminist, what do you think she did? She decided to take pictures of herself covered in her menstrual blood so people could finally see that periods are a “beautiful thing.”
“I get so much pleasure from this ritual and I love feeling so free to share it and I love not caring what the reactions will be,” Nyx told The Scottish Sun.
On her Instagram page you’ll find multiple graphic photos revealing her infatuation with her menstrual cycle. Nyx says her initial experiences with her period caused her shame and made her think it was disgusting, but she wasn’t going to let society continue to control her mind with that type of thinking.
“Sharing pictures of blood on my face and body was just an impulse – I was creating a series to help women connect with their menstrual cycle, and I thought it would be fun,” she said. “My blood to me has become fun, beautiful, and powerful, and playing with it brings me closer to myself.”
The sex coach claims her posts are all about liberating women and has vowed to keep posting these “magical” photos until people get used to looking at them. Boy oh boy.
“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,” she continued. “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 we sometimes bleed through our clothing. Through your sheets.”
So basically she’s just going to keep doing it forever. Also, it seems like the more negative comments she receives the more she wants to post her “beautiful” photos.
"I also heard from friends and family that it was ‘weird’ and ‘disgusting’, and some people didn’t talk to me because of it. That encourages me to keep posting them – if it wasn’t having a necessary impact, people wouldn’t be so bothered by it,” she said.
I really don’t know what to say about all this anymore. So, I’ll just wrap this up with a bunch of comments from Twitter users:
Why..just why..Smh this is why the rest ofnthe world thinks feminists are nuts and can't take u serious! Then you act like you want to be men and get in a ring with a man and get your ass kicked.

No she is right - periods are powerful - just look at what it made her do.— John McDaniel (@abrader23) February 27, 2019

I can understand the rise of mental illness when I see such things. These people are not stable in any sense of the word.— Sam Buick (@weesammyblog) February 28, 2019
