Standing in the line of the girls washroom, I wait for my turn. Tapping my feet with impatience. A girl is combing her hair in front of the mirror.
Finally, it’s my turn. I go in and I am greeted by two used sanitary napkins,displayed on the toilet window, a sanitary napkin wrapper lying on the wet floor.
Some people say the world is changing. Are we really?
I come out of the stall and notice that there is no dustbin in the washroom.
No dustbin? In a girls washroom?
There’s a dustbin just outside but not many girls would dare to approach it.
WHAT IF SOMEONE SEES ME THROW A PAD IN THE DUSTBIN WHERE IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE THROWN. OH NO! INSTEAD, LET ME PUT IT IN THE TOILET WINDOW FOR THE OTHER GIRLS TO SEE AND SMELL.
LET THE BACTERIA GROW IN ALL IT’S GLORY.
Story time for educated people:
Some theories say that we evolved from apes, some say we resemble chimpanzees. Doesn’t matter whichever theory you personally support, we are all primates and primates menstruate.
It is not a big secret.
Girls and transgender men get periods.Accept the biology!
It is not something to be ashamed of. You know it, I know it, everyone outside the washroom knows it.
Keep a dustbin in every bathroom, wrap your used pads in a newspaper/other packaging and dispose it off in a dustbin.
If the dustbin is outside, do not be ashamed to go outside and dispose it off.
Keep the country clean!
