One “man’s” fight against period stigma

This is a fantastic bogeyman that SJWs have drummed up as an excuse to pound the pavements for acceptance of these “alternative” behaviours

With all the atrocities, wars, and tragedies going on around the world today, those who sin against nature have an extra thing to burden our hearts with. This fellow, “Kenny Jones” wants to crusade against “period stigma”. I think that this is real audacity for this person who is in rebellion against the natural order to lecture the rest of us about accepting the natural order.

We get it, menstruation is a part of the human existence, except that this is the experience of a female, not a man. The mere fact that this person still experiences the cycle is enough to demonstrate that “he” is certainly not a man. This is that behaviour of some on the Left to continue to act as if they have something to whine about. The Daily Mail reports:

A transgender man is making history by being the first in the world to front a campaign about periods, in groundbreaking new photos to break the stigma around that time of the month.

Kenny Jones, 23, a model, from north west London, admitted he struggled with his periods as he began to transition from female to male as a teenager.

He came out as trans at the age of 14, shaving his head and changing his name at 16, but before he began to take hormone blockers, he still had periods every month.

In an exclusive interview with FEMAIL, Kenny, who was christened Kelsey, revealed how he felt ‘shame’ and ’embarrassment’ about having a period while living as a man.

He is now fronting the I’M ON campaign by Pink Parcel alongside female celebrities like fashion designer Olivia Rubin and writer Dolly Alderton, to try and end the stigma around having periods.

While transgender matters are finally being spoken about more openly, Kenny says he has never discussed periods with other transgender men, even though it’s an issue that many have to deal with.

He explained: ‘It’s something that’s not talked about. I’ve never had a discussion with another trans man about periods and it’s quite weird to think that considering it’s a normal thing to go through at the end of the day.

‘It’s a very strange stigma that we shouldn’t talk about it and I think that’s a bad thing. It should be put in a positive light and say it’s OK to talk about things. It’s just a natural part of who we are, a normal body function.

‘During my transition I did have to deal with experiencing periods each month and the embarrassment and feelings of shame that can come with it.

‘That’s never easy, for a man or woman, to have to deal with. Periods are something that women often struggle to talk about, and growing up while I was transitioning, I often felt like if they couldn’t talk about it, I definitely couldn’t.’

Kenny was referred to a psychiatrist at the age of 11 when he refused to wear a skirt to his all-girls school, and was later diagnosed as transgender at 14.

At 16 he shaved his head and changed his name by deed poll, and at 17 he began taking blockers that stopped the production of estrogen and halted menstrual bleeding.

As a child he didn’t understand what gender was, and would dress in an androgynous way, he played on the boys’ football team and changed in whichever changing room he wanted.

…He said: ‘I think people are so caught up with the aesthetic of how somebody should look rather than how they feel. Although I felt like a man, my beard only came through then.

‘Looking like a man ultimately determined how people looked at me and perceived me. I wanted to be represented and seen as a man, so up until then everything was kind of up and down and going through all these mixtures of feelings; kind of being confused for a while then coming out the other end content and being able to participate especially in campaigns like this.’

The I’M ON campaign sees Kenny and female celebrities modeling empowering slogan t-shirts to break the stigma about periods.

The campaign, run by subscription service Pink Parcel, found that over a third of British people see periods as a taboo subject.

Kenny says he is prepared for the backlash as a trans male fronting a campaign about a very feminine issue, but says he only wants to spread positivity.

He said: ‘I like making history. I want to encourage people to have open conversations about these kind of things and it think the reaction from the public will be quite funny.

‘If you have a negative comment or you don’t think transgender people are worth or should be a party of this then you’re not living in today’s century.’

Us normal people do not stigmatize menstruation. This is a fantastic bogeyman that these SJWs have drummed up as an excuse to pound the pavements for acceptance of these “alternative” behaviours. These creatures simply will not give us a rest.
