I am working on a class about women’s health and menstruation, and it got me thinking about how I was introduced the ‘my period’. Around my house when I was a kid, we would always say “cousin Ralph has come for a visit” when we were having our periods. Now I call it my Moon time. I like that better and think it has a positive ring to it. From my students, I have heard all kinds of things from “on the rag”, to “aunt Flo”, to “the red flood”, to “goddess time”. So, I’m taking a survey… What do you say when you are bleeding? Be totally honest now… I want to hear all the positives and negatives.
