What do strippers do when they’re on their period

What do female astronauts do when they’re on their period

what do homeless women do when they get their period

what did tribeswomen do when they got their period

what do fictional characters do when they get their period

We never even solved the first one

Strippers: Diva Cup.

Or, in the days before the Diva Cup, I bet they just shoved the tampon string up in there too.

Astronauts: diva cup again! Or pads or tampons. It’s not like they’re floating around up there sans culottes, with their lady-blood just flowing around in the air in beads.

Homeless women: napkins from restaurants, rags, bits of cloth, pads/tampons from shelters, or free-bleeding.

Tribeswomen: depends on the tribe. There’s a tribe in South America in which the word for woman literally means “one with the red-striped leg,” so presumably a lot of free-bleeding goes on. But usually I’d say rags or leaves, like ladies did it back in the day. (Hence “on the rag.”)

Fictional characters: I don’t know about other fictional characters, but my lady protagonist bleeds into a rag as well. But only because she lives in a pseudo-medieval society and doesn’t have a Diva Cup. And I’d assume most other fictional characters do the same.



Swear to god, some guys are terrified that girls are faking common interests to impress them and act really hostile towards anyone they even SUSPECT of doing such a thing

but then they turn around and fake a whole friendship in the hopes of getting sex out of girls, and get mad at them when it doesn’t work

and they super do not see the irony in that

Jack White on American Pickers

Goddddd, I had completely forgotten about this!

Before I took my mother to the concert, the only one in my family (besides me, of course) who knew about Jack White was…Mema, my dad’s mom, who is tiny and old, goes to church whenever she can, sews, and loves to wear blue sweatpants and house slippers. She’s basically a pretty stereotypical grandmother. Anyway, before the concert, we had a conversation that went something like this:

Mema: So what concert are you going to?

Me: Jack White. He’s…uh…(how will I explain Jack White to Mema???)

Mema: Ohhh! I know him! Black hair? Likes hats?

Mom: What?! You know who Jack White is?

Mema: (genuinely shocked) Well, of course, honey. He was on American Pickers. He bought him an elephant head. He seems like a nice young man.

Me: ???????????

Then I googled it, and, yep. It happened. Good eye, Mema.
