Weekly Web Wondering

Standard

Hey everyone!

I was wondering around YouTube and I found this educational video, by Walt Disney about a woman’s menstrual cycle?! I think the most shocking thing is that this was made by Disney, additionally it’s a little shocking that it was banned. I mean, sure it references some “older” opinions of a woman’s role in society. For instance, while we are on our periods it is SO important for us to continue to look “pretty” so we can feel “pretty”. I’m sorry, but when you are feeling gross and moody as hell, making yourself pretty for the sake or prettiness is… stupid. Really, all we want is chocolate ice cream, solitude, and pajamas. well, maybe that’s just me? XD Overall though, I thought the video was quite educational and actually a lot more informative than a lot of our “modern” takes on women’s cycles. Watch it and make your own conclusion, if anything you might get a giggle or two out of it. I think Disney has put out way worse then this and how did they came up with the idea to make this anyway?!

Ciao!

  1. Haha wow, I would have never thought Disney made these kind of short movies xD It was educational though and good for that period of time. Now people are more open with these questions. Why was it banned? Haha I don’t feel pretty during that time and also want to eat lots of chocolate and lay in bed. Thanks for sharing ❀

    • My sister calls it shark week. πŸ™‚ Haha! Yeah, I was so surprised to find it. Really, this is from Disney? I think they’ve published way more “questionable” content with regards to sexuality and women. So, this doesn’t seem too inaccurate and is more based on biology than societal presumptions and porn. Just my observation anyway. ❀

    This kinda reminded me of this (I think it was also Disney but I may be wrong; but I am right in remembering that it was old) period video in biology a couple of weeks ago XD
    Ah nostalgia XD

  3. Haha I just watched the whole video. And I have to admit, now I know more about our freaking menstrual cycle than before. I think it wasn’t that bad. I mean, I can’t find a reason to banned it. But oh well, Thanks Disney, Kotex & you for sharing this today lol πŸ™‚
