Here's a story of a male - who has a period. Yes, you read that right. It's not clear WHERE the "period" comes out of . . . or whether Cass has male or female genitalia. But here's how People magazine is reporting it:
When Cass Clemmer first got their period as a 15-year-old struggling to understand their gender and sexual identity, it felt like the end of freedom.
“I remember, very vividly, the internal chaos that plagued my body the minute I saw those brown stains on my underwear,” Clemmer, 24, tells PEOPLE. “There was a very clear switch in my brain that told me this was the moment I had to start thinking about makeup, boobs and boys. My 15-year-old mind was riddled with the stereotypes around femininity, but I had grown up knowing that periods were so tied to ‘becoming a woman’ that I almost would wish and pray to God that I would never get my first period, just so that I could continue just being me instead of feeling forced into a box I didn’t feel comfortable in.”
The reproductive health activist and artist still feels that battle today when they get their period every month. As someone who prefers to “live in between and around the two socially constructed categories of ‘man’ and ‘woman,’ ” and so prefers the pronouns “they” and “them,” Clemmer struggles with the changes that come with each cycle./blockquote>
