It's 2019 and a lot of people still think periods are something to be ashamed of instead of a punk rock reminder that your body can literally CREATE LIFE. But times they are a changin'! Thanks in part to heroes like Stephanie Góngora, a yoga instructor with a popular Instagram account, who posted a stunning video where she does various difficult poses while bleeding through her white pants.
"I am a woman, therefore I bleed," she wrote under the video, which has been viewed over half-a-million times. You can watch here:
Góngora explains in the caption that she's not intentionally "free bleeding," but the blood stain is from a "leak" (which has happened to every woman at some point). And she chose to post the video to make an important statement about menstruation.
