Erm, guys, the whole thing was a joke & that article is a satire. A bloody funny one (that's a pun, in case you have trouble recognising jokes when they're hidden in serious sentences).

Do you believe everything you read on the Internet? Or just stuff about crazy feminists?

Do you mean to say there are sane ones?


(that's a joke btw)
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Freebleeding is a 4chan joke.

I'm sure there are people out there who don't wear sanitary products, but this particular fad was just made up by a group of trolls who had nothing better to do.

The problem, if problem it be, is that it is believable. The article linked showed two different sides. One was the purported bleeders, and given the extremes that some so called feminists achieve, it was believable that somewhere out there was a group who believed this. The other side was the extreme Christian attitude toward these alleged bleeders. The attitude they displayed was equally as believable on the basis that out there somewhere is a Christian group who would believe the tripe being offered as an objection to the practice. In fact, by Christian fundamentalist standards, the objections were quite mild in their content.

The article actually says, IMO, more about extremist feminism and extremist Christianity than it does about anyone's gullibility.

This satire plays on the idea that people are freaked out by menstrual blood, and the idea of a gang of feral women being all uppetty and not doing as they're told.

Like all effective Internet satires, the truth is in the reaction to the satire rather than the joke itself. Of course it contains elements of truth. That's a reason, but not an excuse for falling for an obvious wind-up & getting in a tizzy about it.

You can't burn snow either!
