Women Do Not Own periods! PERIOD!

"Women Do Not Own periods! PERIOD!" Says popular transgender tik toker Blessing Rose. She also states that Cis-Women have audacity and arrogance to believe that they own periods, to believe that they own woman hood

Just when we thought the internet and mankind couldn't be more divided, we see there's ANOTHER reason to argue. Blessing's statement started an all around internet war between Cis-Gendered women and Trans-Woman. So the question remains WHO OWNS PERIODS? WHO OWNS WOMANHOOD?

Members of the LGBTQIA+ community will state that womanhood as well as menstruation doesn't belong to biological women because non binary, transgendered, and agender people experience menstruating cycles. Lets go through some definitions shall we? For those of us that are still confused af. 

Lets see what Google says...


denoting or relating to a person whose gender identity corresponds with the sex registered for them at birth; not transgender.


denoting or relating to a person whose gender identity does not correspond with the sex registered for them at birth.


denoting, having, or relating to a gender identity that does not conform to traditional binary beliefs about gender, which indicate that all individuals are exclusively either male or female


is not having a gender or a “lack of” a gender. Agender people see themselves as neither a man nor a woman, or both. They're gender-neutral and often are described as genderfree or genderless.

Multiple polls and studies show the majority of Americans believe there are only two genders and because of that fact, many wouldn't care to understand the definitions that are posted above. To these Americans (and many other countries) biological women are the only group of people who are allowed to own, gate keep, and represent woman hood and what it means to be a woman. Cis women have stated their discontent with being labeled as (cis). They've also expressed that for decades women have had to fight for respect and rights & now we have to fight for womanhood. Many biological women have made it clear they do not want to share the title with transwomen, while others have expressed that they are indifferent on the matter.
