There’s a lot of oddity on Facebook. But as they say in the movie Spinal Tap, there’s a thin line between clever and stupid, and a Facebook page called Menstruating Everywhere walks that line with uncommon grace.
I don’t know how I found it. Like a lot of things on the web I just bounced in and knew I needed to know more. It’s got 1,288 followers, has been around almost two years and seems to have no earthly reason to exist except to entertain whoever lands there in a childish, semi-upscale, gross-out way. It’s way more menses than Mensa, but it’s got spunk — I like it.
The “who” of Menstruating Everywhere is not listed anywhere on the page but I made contact and found two dudes across the pond. Their interview helps part the red sea of mystery and will hopefully amuse you enough to give them a standing ovulation when it’s over. Enjoy!
Who are you?
We are Menstruating everywhere! The best providers of menstruation related banter. James Light and Frederick Masters, of England.
When and why did it start?
One fateful day, during the Christmas Period of 2008, a girl by the name of Bleda Lott took part in a swimming race that would change her forever. Unbeknownst to Bleda, a series of events had been set in motion that would culminate on the arrival of her first girl drip. Bleda began the race a girl — she finished it a woman.
Do you feel compelled to update it regularly?
We feel compelled to update periodically, yes.
Do you enjoy your fan’s posts of period related costumes, crafts and commerce?
Bloody hell, no.
Do you pity people who do not menstruate?
We appreciate all types of menstruation, and actively encourage maximum menstruation at all times. Menstruation is a way of life, a frame of mind. We all menstruate.
What’s your ultimate goal? 1 million followers? Bloody world
domination? Free Tampax?
Our aim is just to provide our fans and followers with the most current and appropriate affairs in menstruation. Hopefully, after a series of media deals, sponsorships, and a book, will be able to grace the red carpet with our presence.
