Menstruation, gender, and more inclusive conversations

Menstruation is often discussed in a very gendered context. In this episode I talk with Molly, a 27 year old non-binary person with a passion for all things sexuality and gender who focused their degree on making spaces better for trans identified people.

We chat about menstruation and its relation to some trans and non-binary people. During our chat they present some tips for how parents can help normalize these discussions and the importance of doing this repeatedly versus having one off conversations.

There’s an opportunity for us to learn more about how we can change these conversations to be more universally accepting and understand of the individual experiences of people who menstruate.
