Even though we’ve been fighting to put the spotlight and raise awareness about menstruation for years, the topic is still surrounded by stigma, silence, and even shame. If you think that this only happens in third-world countries, you’re wrong! It happens in the Western world too, and it often puts women and girls in uncomfortable situations in classrooms, workplaces, and many other places. Although most of these incidents go unacknowledged, one 16-year-old girl decided to take a stand against it and took it to Reddit.
The 16-year-old Redditor asked fellow Redditors if she was in the wrong for getting her teacher into trouble after she reported his behavior to the school authorities.
Most of Reddit responded that she was absolutely NOT in the wrong to report Mr. T, and they deemed the teacher, her brother, dad, and male friends to be the a-holes. Check out some of the most popular responses for yourself below, and feel free to share your own thoughts on the matter in the comment section.
