Default In which puberty livens up high school a lot...

Been reading my latest collection of National Geographics.
One new American high school was having a rather unusual problem. They had just opened in a large village. Unfortunately the cultures of the villages meant that when a girl got her first period, the women of the village had to follow her around chanting loud enough for the whole village to hear 'Here comes the menstruating one, woo-oo-ooh!'. This then triggers 'several hours of erotic dances towards her by the males of the village'.
For some reason, it was felt that this might be a rather distracting influence on the school day....

It was a fascinating piece-this was on Yap and the Marianas had just become American territory so were integrating an American education system into a distinctly unmodern system of life. The most curious bit about this is when it took place-perhaps in the 1900s when Roosevelt was expanding foreign territory?Maybe the 1940s when American culture was spreading across the Pacific island as troops arrived? Not quite... 1986.

That's a little... flamboyant, but still better than telling her she should be ashamed of it and pretending periods don't exist. 🤷

Ugh, I had to get away from Facebook ... so I'm here.

AnaKhouri, that's exactly what I was thinking. There are some cultures in which a girl who has gotten her first period is slapped across the face! (Nobody seems to know what the reason is ...)

But I can definitely imagine any incoming North Americans watching this like



This is one of the funniest (and most positive) commercials I've ever seen about a girl's first period ... or at least the first period she's wishing she'd gotten.
