ALASKAN BULL WORM
People mistake ovulation and menstruation to be the same thing when in fact they aren’t
Ovulation is when the eggs are saying “hello friends I am here”
And menstuation is when the eggs are saying “goodbye friends I am gone”
THIS EXPLAINS THE DIFFERENCE 40x BETTER THAN MY ENTIRE SEVENTH GRADE SEX ED CLASS.
I AM SHARING THIS WITH MY PHYSIOLOGY CLASS TOMOROW
I GET SO MAD WHEN PEOPLE THINK IT’S THE SAME THING
like ok think about it - when you have an egg in your fallopian tube, certain things in your body change to make you more horny, more sexually appealing, and therefore more likely to fertilize the now-available egg (this actually happens - the cervix moves up and softens to allow passage of sperm, there is an increase in cervical mucous to help with lubrication, and the increase in estrogen can cause some women’s breasts to become slightly bigger). these are all good plans to boost chances of conception. BLEEDING OUT OF YOUR VAGINA AT THE SAME TIME WOULD NOT. few people like to insert things into a bleeding vagina, and most vagina-owners would rather not have anything to do with that area while it is purging itself of the uterine lining.
and biologically, if you look at the definitions for ovulation and menstruation, they are NOT THE SAME since they DO NOT SERVE THE SAME FUNCTION. it just doesn’t make any sense.
I’m not mad at people who get confused (though I don’t understand why you wouldn’t have been curious enough about your body to look up what it’s even doing at the different parts in the cycle but then again maybe that’s just me), I’m mad at schools that fail to teach this. I have met people in their 20s who still think they’re ovulating while they’re menstruating and it drives me crazy because they’ve been going through the cycle roughly every month for probably 6-10 years now and they STILL DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT IS EVEN HAPPENING IN THEIR OWN BODY.

So no one at my friend’s old high school is allowed to dress up for halloween anymore because one year this kid came to school on a bike wearing a red jumpsuit with tampons taped to him. He rode around the school telling people he was the menstrual cycle
at least yours is funny - my old high school can’t dress up for Halloween anymore because when I was a freshman someone dressed up like border patrol and shouted racial slurs into the microphone at the schoolwide assembly
someone being in your dream for the first time is kind of a weird and interesting thing. it’s like your brain is solidifying the fact that they are officially a part of your life, however insignificant their role may be, that you officially do pay attention to them on a fairly regular basis. like an initiation ceremony to your memory or something.
it’s annoying when people who choose not to go to college look down on people who do, and call them mindless followers
it’s annoying when people who choose to go to college look down on those who don’t, and call them mindless followers
we all have our different life plans and goals, let’s get our noses the fuck out of everyone else’s choices god damn it
Whenever I hear people say that classical music is boring I just want to remind them that Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture called for a cannon to be fired a total of 16 times.
Natural, healthy food are meals that look the most colorful or consisting a wide range of colors.
