Demetra Nys iz Kalifornije radi kao seksualna trenerica i odlučila se premazati menstrualnom krvi po licu kako bi pokazala da je mjesečnica "lijepa i snažna".

Demetra je podijelila snažne fotografije na Instagramu u nastojanju da se suprotstavi stigmi koja se veže uz mjesečnicu, koja se često doživljava kao prljava i tabu. Prema The Sunu, 26-godišnjakinja je dobila prvu mjesečnicu kad je imala 12 godina, ali se stidjela i mislila da je to odvratno. Zbog čega ju je nastojala sakriti.

Koristila je i spiralu (IUD) kao vrstu kontracepciju, ali zbog toga je imala bolne mjesečnice. Nakon godinu dana kao seksualni trener izvadila je spiralu i počela živjeti u skladu s menstrualnim ciklusom. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

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 we sometimes bleed through our clothing. Through your sheets. The idea isn’t to get everyone to put blood on their face (though - wow - does it make your skin glow!) Rather... if I do something soooo shockingly disgusting and put it out in public... maybe someone somewhere will feel like: “well, if she can do *that*, maybe I don’t have to hate my period after all. Maybe my body isn’t that gross after all.” . Also, it’s fun and I like it 💁🏼‍♀️ . #mybodymychoice #menstruation #witchesofinstagram #blood #witch #fuckyourstandards

Njezino se mišljenje o mjesečnici promijenilo i počela je slobodno govoriti o svom ciklusu na društvenim mrežama, a opise su pratile i fotografije njezine krvi. Jedna fotografija prikazuje riječ "besramna" napisana krvlju na njezinoj nozi. A u opisu stoji: 

"Provodila sam mnogo vremena brinući o tome što drugi ljudi misle o meni...A ipak. Ispostavilo se da ništa od toga nije bilo potrebno. Ja ne radim ništa kako bi dobila nečije odobravanje...Jer ono što sam na tom putu stekla, napoko, je najdublja ljubav i potpuno odobravanje mog Ja. Što ako ti istinski voliš i odabravaš sebe? Zato i objavljujem svoju krv. Malo je za to da oslobodim druge žene i puno da zadovoljim Sebe. Imam toliko zadovoljstvo od ovog rituala i volim se osjećati toliko slobodno dijeliti ga i volim ne brinuti se kakve će biti reakcije."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

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 wrinkles, my fat? In my twenties, the focus on my appearance shifted, but the root of where I spent my energy was the same. It was still spent on forming an image that would make other people approve of me. The one with the strongest body. The one that was peaceful and positive. The one who was a good student, the one who was a good teacher, the one who was fun and bubbly but not too loud. The one who could hold all of her emotions and was always working to get rid of her bad feelings. You have it too, don’t you? The one who is a good mom. The one who is a good daughter. The one who eats the healthiest. The one who is a good person. The one who has the most money. It was the same, though. The focus was different but it was still the same. It was still: how could I make sure the people whose opinions I cared about approved of me? And yet. It turns out none of that was ever necessary. I don’t do anything I do now for anyone’s approval. I don’t care about being seen as strong or successful or pretty or important. I also do not care if I am seen as jealous or angry or insecure or hurt or selfish or loud. Because what I have gained on this journey, finally, is the deepest love and total approval of my Self. What if you deeply, truly loved and *approved* of yourself? That is why I post my blood. It is a little to liberate other women and a lot to please my Self. 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. That is how I live my whole life, now. If you want to heal in this way. If you want to learn this.

Gotovo godinu dana, Demetra dijeli selfije u kojima joj je lice crveno od krvi. Na jednoj fotografiji ona objašnjava zašto je odlučila napraviti hrabru izjavu, pišući:

"Radit ću to svaki mjesec dok ljudi više ne budu šokirani time.
Radit ću to sve dok male djevojčice ne prestanu učiti da su prirodne funkcije njihovih tijela odvratne i nečiste.
Radit ću to sve dok žene ne prestanu osjećati kao da ne mogu imati seks u ovom razdoblju jer je to ružno. "

Film o mjesečnici

Oscarom za najbolji kratkometražni dokumentarni film ove godine nagrađen je film Rayke Zehbatchi "Period. End of Sentence".  Film koji govori upravo o tome protiv čega se bori Demetra Nyx, a to je stigma koja se veže uz mjesečnicu. Primjerice mnoge žene u Indiji ne znaju što je uložak, a mladi muškarci ne znaju što je uopće mjesečnica. Normalna pojava ženskog tijela obavijena je velom srama, a upravo ovakve scene dokumentarnih filmova pokazuju zašto su mnoge žene na Zapadu revoltirane kad se govori o menstruaciji te zašto rade ovakve kontroverzne pokrete kao što to radi Demetra Nyx.
