This might be the most factually accurate yet least representative description of the female cycle yet.

Oh no wait, this one is. The often banned Disney Story of Menstruation:

“To most girls, menstruation should bring no physical problems.”

Hmm, either the narrator is a computer, or has forgotten that the beginning of your “lady time” is best spent curled up on the couch with a sad movie and some high quality chocolate.

    Was this banned for it's discussion of reproductive organs' or its outrageous view of women?

  2. I think it didn't fit with the evolving Disney "image" since it discussed reproduction…its outrageous view of women kind of fits with the other (non-banned) Disney movies of that era.

    haha! great response. In my defense though, Disney doesn't have the best track record for keeping up with the times. I easily could have pictured this thing being made in the 90's.
