Discussing Important Milestones for Girls: the Menstrual Period

**This about my experience with my period during my tween years. And if you are sensitive to discussion about menstruation, I advise that you skim this**

When I started going through puberty, my mom did not explain anything about the menstrual cycle or the fact that my body will be changing, like going from a stick to having real curves, the whole shabang: hips, booty and breasts.

I was not prepared for what was in store.

I believed that I only bled during my period, I did not know that my body was actually shedding the uterine lining. So when I saw pieces of flesh in the toilet or on my pad, I was TERRIFIED. I was scared that something was wrong with me. I was also scared to tell my mom, because I thought it would make her panic.

When I finally summed up the courage to tell her about it, she just said “3adi, Abeer, that’s normal.” And that was it, no elaboration, nothing.

It was not till a few months later when I found a website sponsored by Kotex, for girls who are blossoming that explained everything to me. And once I had that info, I discussed it in depth with my mom.

I hope that the next generation of girls will have someone explain these changes and know that it is okay to speak about it and have questions. We must create that safe space.

“’Tell your people,’ Salah al-Din told him, ‘that we shall not treat them as your forebears treated us when they first took this city. As a child, I was told of what Godfrey and Tancredi did to our people. Remind these frightened Christians of what Believers and Jews suffered ninety years ago. The heads of our children were displayed on pikes. Old men and women of all ages were tortured and burnt. These streets were washed in blood, Balian. Some of the emirs would like to wash them again, but this time in your blood. They remind me that we all believe in an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’”
— Book of Saladin

Problems of a history major.

israelwc:

On April 9, 1948, members of Zionist paramilitary groups, the Irgun (led by Menachem Begin) and the Stern Gang (led by Yitzhak Shamir), entered the Arab village of Deir Yassin and massacred over 100 men, women and children. Deir Yassin had a population of about 600-750 people, and had a reputation for being a peaceful village. There were also reports of rapes and mutilations.

Excerpt from The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, by Israeli historian Ilan Pappé:

    Irgun and Stern Gang, the Jewish forces, stormed into the village of Deir Yassin on this day 63 years ago, they sprayed the houses with machine gun fire, killing many. They raped and killed some of the women, they gathered the remaning villagers in one place and shot them all in cold blood.

    Fahim Zaydan was 12 at the time;

    “They took us out one after the other; shot an old man and when one of his daughters cried, she was shot too. Then they called my brother Muhammad, and shot him infront of us, and when my mother yelled, bending over him- carrying my little sister Hudra in her hands, still breastfeeding her- they shot her too.”

    Zaydan was shot too (he survived) when the troops lined up children against a wall and sprayed them with bullets “just for the fun of it”.

    Research suggests that between 93-170 people were massacred, although this list doesn’t include the number of people killed during the fighting. FB.com/Israelwc
