This amazing/hilarious/disturbing/insert-your-own-adjective vid popped up on the Feministing Community blog, and spread like wildfire across the net: Disney, “through the courtesy of Kotex Products”, presents The Story Of Menstruation (circa 1946)!
That pituitary gland baby is going to haunt my nightmares.
However! Aside from the obvious laffs (the recurring four female body types and “very personally yours” are two of my favourites), there’s something oddly… comforting about this film (you know, apart from reminding you to powder your nose at that time of the month). Or am I just PMSing like the little lady at 7:28-minutes?
