Badass Baristas and PMS Superpowers

August 25th, 2011 by Elizabeth Kissling

Crimson Tide, a.k.a. Cassie Taylor (Super Power: Epic Rage)

Are you following the PMS Adventures of Crimson Tide, Maxi Pad, and Tam Pon? After a paid medical trial went bad, these ladies developed extraordinary superpowers that manifest only when they’re menstruating — and since they’re roommates, their cycles are often synchronized.

Start here to read an abridged version of their origin story and follow the links to catch up on all of their adventures.

    These ladies are great but I thought I would submit this link to a slightly more serious take on how women aren’t taught to understand what exactly birth control is doing to their bodies and what it means to be on or go off of hormonal birth control.

    Thanks, Jaime!

    Holly Grigg-Spall, frequent guest poster at re:Cycling, has a whole blog about those other effects of the pill, called Sweetening the Pill, that you might be interested in.

    Laura Wershler, regular contributor here, has also written a great deal about how little education about hormonal birth control women receive before they receive the pill. You can find her posts by using the “Archives by Author” link in the sidebar.
