But I still insist that our society' attitude (aided and abetted by the mega pharmaceutical companies and medical supply houses) encourages females to see their reproductive cycles as a nuisance and worse.

I also think the medical profession is extremely lazy and should be researching the causes of painful and unpredicatable cycles and trying very hard to find real cures for these things. I mean real cures that fix the underlying hormonal problems and not just bandaid remedies that cover up the symptoms and leave the underlying problem to fester.

PS: the ground hog saw his shadow. Six more weeks of winter!

Actually, from what I've seen a lot of girls love having their period. I don't; I find it a nuisance because I have to run to the bathroom every hour to make sure I haven't leaked, even though I'm on the pill, and I also find it a nuisance because my mother is forcing me to go to the gynacologist again to possibly be examinated on the grounds of her own problems.

I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!

You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
