Girls like her who sit around all day complaining about problems that don't exist in their fake, digital life of instagram & tumblr are just sexually frustrated. I mean think about it, if they actually had someone they loved, a guy who appreciated them and fucked them everyday, they wouldn't be crying all the time.

To the point at hand, yes it's natural but people don't want to see it on a global scale (like posting it to the internet), this should be common sense but the typical western women these days are idiot's and it's no wonder so many of them are single.

Maybe Ms. Kaur's problem is that she simply went too downmarket. After all, she posted that image up for free on Instagram.

What if a guy takes a picture of his own semen? Then it's art.

I'm genuinely curious to know what would happen if Andres Serrano posted his work on Instagram.

I honestly don't give a fuck.

The pics aren't bad, but the tirade about the patriarchy is getting old.

It feels like, even if there was a legitimate mastermind scheme to shame women for their periods ("OH NOES!!!!"), it's getting tired pretty damned quick. This shit is, thankfully, not even making the mainstream media and is now regulated down to foreign clickbait... soon it won't even qualify for clickbait, and just be spam.

I also just want to say, if you launch into a tirade that mirrors a conspiracy theory right from the get go without exploring other alternative (and simpler) rationales, people are just going to instantly tune you out and nobody's going to take you seriously. Sure, you might get your pics posted back up today, but six months from now? Nobody's even going to give you the time of day. It's high time the tumblrtards realize this.

Now can we get back to anime?

She has a right to complain, a right to piss and moan, a right to name and shame, and a right to post her content elsewhere.

Instagram in turn has a right to remove whatever they see fit, whether they have an explicit rule against it or not. Bottom line: their network, their decision.

Is it "ZOMG PATRIARCHY" at work here? Feh, who knows. It was probably (and in fact very likely) automated. Did she even try to contact Instagram support? I'm betting not, based on the tone of her rant. I'm betting she's just another of those professional victims that give feminism such a bad name, and should be shunned by everyone.

What if a guy had morning boner and decided to post it on instagram, would it still be cool to post it and fight for the right to keep it up? No, we don't wanna see that shit nor do we wanna see bleeding vaginas. This shit is dumb.
i agree posting the excretion of bodily fluids are not way in shape of form in being "artsy","edgy" or whatever else you wanna call it.its just a disgusting way to make a point or two across

That terribly sad awkward moment when you're on your period now and view this.


I feel sorry for her.

So she can be mad and all about this, but if she agreed to the use of instagram, then this is something that is allowed to happen to anyone. So if someone else (maybe a male, even) posted something similar/of similar style (related to areas of the body that people can find "inappropriate" to talk about), then that could be taken down too...if any of that made sense XD
Posted 3/28/15
She has a right to be angry, just as instagram has a right to remove any objectionable material. Do I think she was overthinking it just a bit? Yes. Do I feel sorry for her? Somewhat, yes. Even if she made a big fuss over a simple judgement that had little to do with sexism, I don't think the pic should have been taken down because it involves menstruation, nor her being shouted down for overreacting. Not in this case, but I wouldn't rule out some sexism is involved to some degree, but not as certain as someone censoring citing it bad taste. (which is within their right)

I am all for our rights and the need to fight for equal pay. At the same time, this woman did not use even the most remote bit of forethought. Children look at those pictures.

I find it disgusting to show the world my period as an expression of my artistic proficiency, cleaning my crotch on the toilet with a good view of my bloodied wipes going into the garbage? Wow.

I would feel as dirtied if I saw a man's wet-dream ejaculation posted online as part of his 'great understanding' of bodily fluid art.

Use some common sense.

*sarcasm* It's the evil patriarchy guys, put on your tin foil hats.

Don't you see it's all a conspiracy, mensuration is being taken off Instagram not because it's gross and against TOS, but because the patriarchy wants control.

You know what? Sure. Okay. Whatever. I'm done. I'm just done taking stuff like this seriously.

I mean just look at the long ass post about people talking about this nobody. So what was it about the women of India and the Middle-East? I don't know either.
