Some feminists’ obsession with the body takes them to disgusting and disturbing extremes.
A young feminist from California has been trying to draw attention to herself and her body by smearing her own menstrual blood on her face and posting pictures of it online, the Daily Wire reports.
Demetra Nyx, 26, of Los Angeles, is a sex coach who calls her period “beautiful” and “magical.”
“Sharing pictures of blood on my face and body was just an impulse – I was creating a series to help women connect with their menstrual cycle, and I thought it would be fun,” Nyx wrote on Instagram.
“We hold so much shame in our bodies, and most of us do not realize it until we intentionally explore it. Our periods are an incredibly magical time of month that holds immense power, and our society keeps us away from that as much as possible …”
One photo shows the word “Shameless” written in blood across her leg. Others show it smeared across her face.
“We can also do things like paint with it or pour it into the earth,” Nxy said. “I believe it’s a beautiful thing to get comfortable with touching your own blood. I used to spend my time worrying about what other people thought of me.”

She said smearing her menstrual blood across her face has become a “ritual” for her, according to The Scottish Sun.
“It is a little to liberate other women and a lot to please my Self,” she continued. “I get so much pleasure from this ritual and I love feeling so free to share it and I love not caring what the reactions will be.
“I will do this every month until people are no longer shocked by it. I will do it until little girls stop being taught that the natural functions of their bodies are disgusting and unclean. I will do it until women stop feeling like they can’t have sex on their period because it is gross,” Nyx said.
It is this almost religious worship of the body that often supports abortion as well. Claiming ultimate control over their body, some feminists believe there is no problem with aborting an unborn baby for any reason up to birth. They call for an end to the “stigma” and “shame” of abortion and full embrace of women’s so-called “right to choose” to do whatever she wants with her body, including killing the child she is carrying.
