Religiously speaking, why are women considered unclean during their period?

If there are spiritual forces/entities that recycle things as I believe there are. And there is more energy in blood. That might be why. (Might even be why women have PMS. They are under psychic/spiritual attack). But couldn’t they have found better ways to deal with this, other than making them hide in caves? Like prayer, meditation, and having the Light surround them for Protection during that time?

The way that women have been treated by organized religions has a long history of being shameful, and this is still true today. There is a decidedly male slant to most religions I know about, and, hopefully, we are coming to a time where there is greater understanding between men and women.

The following is a quote from pages 479-480 of Insight From the Scriptures, published by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of PA. “Why did the Mosaic Law say that sexual intercourse and childbirth made a person “unclean”?” “The question arises: Why were such normal, proper things as menstruation, sexual intercourse between married persons, and childbirth viewed in the Law as making one “unclean”? For one thing, it raised the most intimate relations of marriage to the level of sanctity, teaching both mates self-control, a high regard for the reproductive organs, and respect for the sacredness of life and blood.… Read more »

It was part of the God Yahweh’s advanced disease prevention plan in The Mosaic Laws to keep His people healthy. Back then with no Kotex or Tampons the blood that drips out of hundreds of menstruating women living in close quarters in the heat of the desert would contaminate whatever surfaces it landed on and would cause the spread of disease through contact with others who came into contact with the blood contaminated surfaces. This law was based on Yahweh’s knowledge of the germ theory 3500 years before mankind invented the microscope to learn the same germ theory and write… Read more »

Menstruation is the shedding of the uterine lining (endometrium). It occurs on a regular basis in reproductive-age females of certain mammal species. Overt menstruation (where there is bleeding from the vagina) is found primarily in humans and chimpanzees. The females of other placental mammal species have estrous cycles, in which the endometrium is reabsorbed by the animal (covert menstruation) at the end of its reproductive cycle. Many zoologists regard this as different from a “true” menstrual cycle.

The period is a time of cleansing the womb to create the best habitat for a baby, so I see nothing unclean about it.

Last time I tried it, having Light surround me for Protection didn’t make my cramps or bloating go away.

Women were considered unclean while menstruating because it was another way for men to keep women oppressed. By telling them that their bodily functions were evil and dirty, they kept their self-esteem low and kept them barefoot and pregnant in the tent-kitchen.

I believe they should do that, too.
Take a few days off each month for spiritual reflection and connection with the moon and the Goddesses.

But I wouldn’t know, I’m a dude.
