I got my period for the first time since Roe v Wade was overturned

And it really sucks. It just reminds me about how the government doesn’t care about us at all and that no matter how hard I try I will always be at the mercy of horrible, regressive-minded men and their opinions just because of the body parts that I have.

My parents don’t get why I’m still upset. They are immigrants and while they are no where near conservative and definitely recognize and abhor the impacts of Roe v wade on society, they are under the impression that I don’t need to feel personally about this since I am not having sex with men and I live in a blue state.

I have no desire to have sex with men but that doesn’t mean that I can’t feel for all the other people who are more impacted by it or fear for this whole situation getting worse and leading to a scenario where I will be directly impacted by it.

I am afraid that we’ll all eventually learn to live with this except for the people who will die because of it and will be swept under a rug.

I’m sorry if this made no sense but I’m just really scared right now and don’t know what to do with myself right now.
