It is said that people are running high and history is moving forward. Sometimes, what is more difficult to surmount than menstrual poverty is the poverty of ideas.
Every woman, to a certain age, is to menstruate. Women have to endure more than a dozen big aunts torture a year, and they also have to spend a lot of resources on this.
Modern women in the fertile age stage, an average of 450 menstruation, more than 3000 days, about 8 years. According to a menstrual volume of 40 ml, to 450 times of menstruation calculation, a womans life just because of menstruation will bleed 18 L (similar to the volume of bottled water on the water dispenser), equivalent to more than 3 times of the whole body blood volume of an adult!
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Scientists have calculated that if you take into account everything a woman spends on her menstruation, a woman will spend about 20000 dollars on her big aunt (of course, Chinese women should spend less? After all, drinking more hot water can solve many problems.
Maybe we should make a careful analysis from the level of evolution and gene. I believe it will subvert your three views.
In fact, humans are not the only animals that will menstruate. In addition to humans, there are also some mammals will menstruate, so why do these animals menstruate?
Scientists have found that menstrual animals have some common reproductive characteristics, such as spontaneous ovulation, mating time is not limited to the ovulation period.
Most importantly, these menstrual animals have a haemochorionic placenta, the most aggressive of all placental types, and the trophoblast cells of the fetus are in direct contact with the maternal blood.
The appearance of blood chorionic placenta, on the one hand, allows the fetus to fully absorb the nutrition from the mother, on the other hand, it brings great trouble to the mother, even life-threatening.
In fact, in the process of fetal development, when the embryo is implanted into the endometrium, there is a contest between the mother and the fetus. Because half of the fetuss chromosomes come from the father and have different genes from the mother.
In order to continue the gene, both sides will do their best to ensure their survival.
The fetus hopes to absorb all possible energy from the mother, and invades the endometrium of the mother with the aid of the growing placenta, until it is connected to the spiral artery of the uterus, greedily absorbs nutrients from the maternal blood.
The fetus also produces hormones to dilate the arteries of the mother, paralyzing them and preventing them from contracting. In addition, the fetus also produces hormones that inhibit the mothers response to insulin and raise blood sugar levels. All this, of course, is for the growth of the fetus. Of course, these are all acts of active attack.
This is a brutal cell survival control war.
Every pregnancy is a risky investment for a mother to carry on her genes. Once the fetus is implanted in the endometrium, the mother loses some control over her hormones and is at risk of massive hemorrhage during childbirth.
Can mother be caught with her hands tied?
Of course, if not pregnant, then the endometrium will peel off, menstruation occurs.
In this way, it seems that the mother is not totally selfless in her treatment of the fetus. As a result of pregnancy, the mother will passively lose part of her body control. This is a risky investment. She cant bear to cover her child. She is also helpless.
However, on second thought, the fetus is also selfish in evolution. At least for human beings, the brain, which accounts for only 2% of the total weight of the human body, consumes 20% of the energy. This high energy consuming brain needs to greedily absorb the nutrition of the mother in the process of embryonic development. They plunder the mothers nutrients with the greatest ability, and even make maternal love flourish through hormone regulation Out.
So, dont talk about your childs selfish and ungrateful since childhood. From a micro perspective, when he / she invades your body, his / her nature will be revealed.
Big aunts black history.
At that time, menstrual blood was associated with death, disease, foreboding, and curse. During the first aunts period, not to mention drinking hot water, drinking the northwest wind in the wilderness was already a very good treatment.
There are so many taboos about Auntie that you doubt your life.
1u3001 Primitive society
On the whole, its simple and crude.
Pliny, an ancient Roman scholar, wrote a book called natural history, in which he declared that girls aunts blood can make crops wither, steel rust, bees die, and inhibit plant seed germination. In short, there is no thing in the world that cant be done by Aunt blood, and those who get aunts blood will destroy the world.
2u3001 Slave society
In the slave society, women began to learn how to hide their shame with underwear made of animal skins or bark, put some dry things on them to absorb menstrual blood, and they also learned to wash the vulva with water to keep them clean.
In the middle ages of the west, it was believed that the child born after menstrual rooming would have red hair and look like a devil. Coincidentally, in China, people also think that children born in the same room during menstruation have red faces.
It is because of the demonization of menstrual blood that ancient women were forced to do so.
3u3001 Feudal society
In ancient China, the imperial family had some marvelous feats, such as refining elixir with menstrual blood, using menstrual pants as a defense weapon, and giving their children menstrual blood to drive away evil spirits. The reason why there are so many wonderful things, in fact, is that menstrual blood can not properly handle such a problem.
4u3001 The Republic of China
During the period of the Republic of China, the young ladies and sisters gave us the feeling of being independent and independent. However, there were also various kinds of unbearable things behind them
Unfortunately, I was born as a woman. Every time I meet my menstrual period, I can get tired of dampness. The lining paper is thick and hard, and my muscles touch like thorns. The pain of spirit is unknown to outsiders.
Even in playing mahjong when touching a red, will curse: Damn, touched a menstrual band..
5u3001 New era
By the 1920s, something really revolutionary appeared.
In 1921, Kimberlys company produced the worlds first disposable sanitary napkin, Kotex, now known as gauze.
In 1927, jiaosheng company produced modais again.
In 1929, Dr. Haas from the United States invented the worlds first internal tampon. It was patented in 1933 and named danbis.
In 1970, there was a major breakthrough in the evolution of sanitary napkins, namely, the birth of self-adhesive adhesive sanitary napkins. After half a century, more and more brands of sanitary napkins, more and more exquisite technology, more and more safe materials, more convenient use, and more convenient to carry.
The invention of sanitary napkin is undoubtedly great, and its significance is cross era. It is precisely because of this that it is known as one of the top ten inventions affecting human beings in the 20th century.
Incidence rate in a sneaky way is 15 years to 44 years old. In China, the world banks 1993 data show that the incidence of gynecopathy in women from 18% to 44 years old is relatively conservative.
Women who are driven crazy by their big aunts prefer to have litter after litter in order to avoid dealing with big aunts. It is normal for every woman to have seven or eight children in a lifetime.
For women, the long years is a history of fighting with their great aunt. They dont love each other, but kill each other.
In fact, all the debates on the Internet can be less complicated.
Because under the issue of menstruation, what people expect from the beginning to the end is some clear and simple appeal: we expect that we can talk about menstruation in a big way, and no longer obscure it as a groups exclusive burden.
We hope that we can understand and empathize with each other more, and dont let some differences become the estrangement of long-standing and difficult dialogue.
