so in her lifetime, a woman can lose about ten gallons of blood through her period.
that’s enough blood loss to die twenty times
women are metal as fuck
No. According the the NHS the average woman loses 1/16 cup of blood which is a little over 8 teaspoons, or 40mL.
Assuming 12 periods a year, from the average menarche at age 12 to the set of menopause at 45, this is 33yrs of periods with twelve periods each which equals 396 periods.
396 periods with 1/16 cup of blood lost each time = 24.75 cups of blood. A gallon has 16 cups in it. This means there’s a loss of 1.5 gallons of blood.
Heavy menstrual flow is considered 80ml, which is double the amount which only leads to a 3 gallon blood loss over their life time
A person weighing 150 pounds has 5.5liters of blood in their body, which is 1.5 gallons. And If my knowledge of medicine is correct, you are in the danger zone if you lose a third of that (roughly. It depends on a few factors, it’s closer to 35% but can be up to 40, but let’s keep this simple). The means a person can lose 1.8~liters before starting to bleed to death. This is a little under a half a gallon.
Therefore it is not enough to die 20x, but rather three times.

I am sick of people thinking deodorant is optional
i’m sick of people thinking that they can judge others on a normal bodily function and that the only way they can be accepted is to wear something that is harmful/poisonous to your body. just because some men in the 1880’s decided bodily odor was no longer acceptable.
Nobody fucking likes body odor though. I mean I feel that the above response is like saying that showering isn’t necessary.
Actually, it sucks to stink yes, that people should wear deodorant is in fact apparent.. I dont care if it sounds rude but No ONE wants to be stuck in a confined fucking space with someone whose stinking up the joint.
sometimes i think about how blade saved marvel
i think about how much blackness was in that movie
in the soundtracks
and then i think about the resistance to blackness in the current movies, in making blackness a focal point
i think about how blackness is always the bff or a small cameo
i get so mad because blackness SAVED marvel literally kept it from folding
I have so many thoughts and feelings about this
Because those Blade movies did something no other comic book movie has every done
They made a character cooler than they are on the page
Like, yeah, you and me and a bunch of people we both follow love comics and think the characters are “cool”
but how many comic book characters are actually cool? very few
Even blade, blade’s never been that cool on the page
but when they brought him to life? he exuded swag and grace (think about how rare it is for black action heroes to actually get to be graceful, like before blade it was fuckin jim kelly)
and everything that made blade cool on film is why black panther would be cool on film except black panther doesn’t need any white people’s help and he rolls deep with a squad of unfriendly black hotties
