TRADITIONAL MUM THINKS TAMPONS WILL TAKE AWAY DAUGHTER’S VIRGINITY

I, like many other people get my period once a month. Up until recently I have only been using pads, but I’ve been wanting to switch to tampons or other alternatives for awhile. This is mostly because I have an extremely heavy flow, which causes me to use pads meant for overnight (which are giant btw) during the daytime and I have to change them really, and I mean really, frequently. I’m always anxious that I may be leaking while wearing them and it makes me really uncomfortable.

For context, my mother is very traditional. I came up to her one day to ask to switch to tampons, expecting her to agree with a fairly normal reaction. Instead, she flipped out on me and gave me a whole lecture of how I should be ashamed of even asking such a thing and that apparently she genuinely thinks a piece of dry ass cotton would take my virginity.

I literally thought she was joking, but she was being 100% serious. I argued with her for a solid 20 minutes on why a tampon would in fact, not take my virginity.

It was obvious that even trying to convince her was like trying to convince a brick wall, so after a few more arguments I got fed up and decided I’d buy tampons with my own money.

My brother was kind enough to agree to drive me to a nearby store and I bought some without issue. A couple weeks went buy and everything was going fine until my mother decided it was a good idea to rummage though my room, and you guessed it she found my opened box of tampons in my closet. I would’ve hid them better if I knew she liked to snoop around my room.

She was furious and was basically screaming about how I’m a whore and how I’ll essentially (she didn’t say it in these exact words but she definitely wanted to) I’ll die alone for having used a tampon.

Now she’s giving me the silent treatment until I apologize to her. But I still don’t think I’ve done anything wrong, and I’m not one to throw out meaningless apologies.
