As evidence, I offer you this article.
A 'uterus-shaped' cereal has been launched with the goal of putting conversations about periods on the table.
Feminine care brand Intimina developed its raspberry-flavoured 'Period Crunch' to encourage families to discuss menstruation more openly at breakfast.
Despite being marketed as womb-shaped, the cereal actually resembles the entire female reproductive system.
The wheat-based cereal ... is dyed red to mimic the colour of blood.
Intimina claims conversations about periods are not 'truly normalised' and it wanted to 'make a statement' about the issue.
There's (unfortunately) more at the link.
Dear readers, please answer me these simple questions:
What normal family discusses menstruation over breakfast??? And why would they eat intimately-shaped, blood-colored cereal while doing so???
Dammit, I grew up with a mother and three sisters. I'm sure they discussed menstruation, but they did it in private, possibly together, possibly one-on-one. They certainly never inflicted such discussions on the men of the household, and emphatically not over a shared meal! I can't believe our family was any different than most others in that regard. I mean, if one wouldn't discuss wet dreams, or yeast infections, or diarrhea, or toenail fungus in that setting, why make an exception for menstruation?
This cereal is making a statement all right. The statement is, "I'm so far gone I can no longer tell moonbattery from reality!"
