Instructora de yoga muestra con orgullo su menstruación para dar un importante mensaje

Para romper los tabúes que genera este íntimo momento femenino, la instructora Steph Gongora compartió un video para enviar un fuerte mensaje.

Aunque la menstruación es un tema tabú, poco a poco se ha convertido en algo de lo que se puede hablar libremente.

Ese es el objetivo Steph Gongora, una instructora de yoga que publicó un video en la que muestra su íntimo momento haciendo varias posturas.

“Soy mujer, por lo tanto, sangro. Es doloroso, terrible y hermoso, sin embargo, no lo sabrás porque lo escondo. Entierro cosas en el fondo de la basura, respiro de manera irregular cuando los calambres llegan, al tiempo que se aferran a una sonrisa falsa”, escribió

I am a woman, therefore, I bleed. . It's messy, it's painful, it's terrible, & it's beautiful. . And yet, you wouldn't know. Because I hide it. . I bury things at the bottom of the trash. I breathe, ragged and awkward through the cramps, all the while holding onto this tight lipped, painted on smile. . Tampons? Shhh. We don't say those words out loud. Hide them. In the back pocket of your purse, in the corner of the bathroom drawer, at the very bottom of your shopping cart (please let me get a female cashier). . Events or engagements get missed. I'll tell myself it’s the PMS, sure, but it has more to with the risk of being "caught," at what…I'm not quite sure. . And I’m lucky. . Over 100 million young women around the globe miss school or work for lack of adequate menstrual supplies, & fear of what might happen if the world witnesses A NATURAL BODILY FUNCTION. . WHY? . Because hundreds of years of culture have made us embarrassed to bleed. Have left us feeling dirty and ashamed. . STOP PRETENDING. Stop using silly pet names like Aunt Flo because you're too afraid to say "I'm bleeding" or "vagina." Stop wasting so much effort hiding the very thing that gives this species continuity. . START talking about it. Educate your daughters. Make them understand that it can be both an inconvenience and a gift, but NEVER something to be ashamed about. Educate your sons so they don't recoil from the word tampon. So when a girl bleeds through her khaki shorts in third period (pun intended), they don't perpetuate the cycle of shame and intolerance. . This #StartSomethingSunday , I want to highlight @corawomen . . Cora Women is a 100% Organic tampon company. . But that’s not all. They are also breaking barriers. Making it ok to talk about periods, even on social media. Providing personalized, delivered tampon/pad orders right to your door. AND for every box purchased, donating a box of sustainable pads to girls who can't afford menstruation products. . Fuck yeah. That's the kind of stuff I can galvanize behind, NO money OR product needed. Just a mission I support on a topic we should ALL be talking about. . THIS IS JUST A LEAK, NOT FREE BLEEDING ✌🏽

Parte de la naturaleza

La regla acompaña la vida de toda mujer desde la pubertad hasta la menopausia.

Aunque duela, Gongora se coloca delante de la cámara para dejar claro que no es algo que deba dar vergüenza.

Señala que la cultura avergüenza a las mujeres por sangrar, haciendo del periodo algo impuro, cuando es una función del cuerpo.

Invitó, además, a no recurrir a sobrenombres para no decir la palabra correcta.

Indica que es mejor educar a las niñas para que entiendan que bajo ninguna circunstancia deben avergonzarse por algo natural que ocurre en su cuerpo.
