The TV actress Saloni Chopra, popularly known as redheadwayfarer is breaking free from all stereotypes through her pictures, posts, and captions on Instagram. Her bold statements, fearless writings have made her a role model for the youngsters. The actress has written about menstruation cycle, slut shaming and women empowerment, which were all, appreciated and liked my many people. She is a solid proof to all those people who think that women are weak.
Her recent post about ‘menstruation’ gained much popularity among her fans and followers. With 21,934 likes and 2253 comments, it was one of her most viewed posts.
The caption read as follows:
“That’s right, it’s just blood. Y’know who gave it more importance than it needs? You. You who celebrated my very 1st menstrual cycle.. said it made me a woman. Then you told me to never discuss it publicly. First, you made me feel proud of becoming, then you made me feel there was something wrong with me. You told me I couldn't visit holy places. You conditioned me to love cooking, but you wouldn’t let me, that day. You yelled when I lit the diya in the mandir that morning. The kids at school laughed at me & my friends didn't sit next to me, bcos my blue skirt was red. I ate my lunch alone, crying in the washroom. I wasn’t very proud of being a girl that day. Then I grew older & I met boys, boys that liked me. boys that knew nothing about periods but got disgusted every time a pad fell out of my bag. I couldn’t fathom that women raised such men. My girlfriends always whispered about it, were they ashamed? My colleagues thought I was being a bitch cos I was “PMSing” – my boss thought that was just my lame excuse to take a day off. I guess his penis never bled, he didn’t know what it felt like to have his hormones go on a rollercoaster ride every month, yet all they could grasp from it was that period was “yuck” and girls act “crazy”; on them. I’m not mad at you cos I’m on my period, I’m mad at you for the ignorant moron you are. You think I’m overreacting when I speak about inequality, then you cringe at the idea of vaginal blood. You think it’s impure. From you who gave birth to me, to you that want to marry me, listen carefully – there is nothing about me that is “impure” every month. I’m not the creation of the devil. I’ll have as many conversations about my menstrual cycle as I please; I will cook as many meals as I like & enter as many places of worship as I want to. For those 5 days, maybe you should keep your impure selves out of my kitchen, my temple, my workplace and; come back when you’re ready to accept my body. I will never, ever accept my tampons wrapped in a newspaper again – there's a lot more dirt printed in that than a woman's body could ever produce. And if you try to hush- hush me, I’ll only scream louder.
Every damn girl.[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]Also Read:- Does my bra strap depict my character[/perfectpullquote]
