My name is Debbie, and I've e-mailed you before to tell you how much I liked the Museum of Menstruation.
I've decided to make an award for my favourite sites, and you've got one.
I don't want anything for it. I just want you to know how much I like your site.
I've attached the award to this e-mail.
So glad to have found your site and so glad that you(all) knew the importance of speaking about our blood.
I speak to this issue in Site Notes at Barbara's Place - Novel Cryptograms. Have a look, I think you will be interested.
Just found your site today. Am enjoying it.
Was reading some info on The Keeper and Instead. Started using Instead a few months ago because of problems with tampons not staying in and a lot of leakage from them. One of the letters I read on your site said that the company for Instead was going out of business. Is this true? I hope not. [Akcess just bought the company; I hope it will continue to sell the cup, which some women like.]
I do have some leakage, but it is minimal compared to the tampons and only leaks when I use the restroom. As to messiness during and removal, I use hand wipes (moist towelettes). You can get them in a portable purse-sized packets or even individually wrapped.
I use The Keeper and am very happy with it. I was a bit concerned when I saw a letter at your site that claimed that cups were unsafe. Did this person cite any literature to support her claims?
Thanks for placing my e-mail in your Web site. I really think people need to know the correct information, especially since most people actually know close to nothing about Islam. [This includes me, and knowing more is even more important today because of recent world events.]
I'd just like to inform you that I read the part about Eve's punishment in redspot: taboo, http://onewoman.com/redspot/hist.html, which was linked to your page, not in the Zoroastrianism article.
However, I went to that site once today yesterday and found that there has been a little change. It does not say anything about Torah anymore. Instead of Torah, Bible and Koran, now it says:
Both the Old Testament of the Bible and the Koran consider menstruation part of Eve's punishment.
I still wonder where these people read this in the Qur'an [Koran] . . . .
The Zoroastrianism article actually mentions nothing about Islam.
It does say something about the Arabs. I wonder whether you confused Arabs and Islam. [Gulp!] An Arab can be a Muslim, a Christian, or a Judaism follower, an atheist, or other. If you ask any American Muslim, I bet they do not put women in a separate hut or place during menstruation, because it is not an Islamic tradition. There is no taboo during menstruation in terms of relationship with other people. The only prohibition is have a sexual relationship that has to do with penetration of the vagina.
MUM's the word, as they used to say! [I still do!]
As someone long in awe and proud of my monthly cycle, I enjoyed reading many of the features on your site! I find them informative and affirming.
This site could actually be used as an educational tool. [I hope somehow it is.] I don't have an appropriate use for it now - I primarily teach English and writing. However, if menstruation comes up in a literature or women's studies class, I will be glad to refer my students to your site!

Hope you'll enjoy our music.
