Dad, Family, and God: THE PAKISTANIMAR HASTEWART Your MCM thinks you should be fasting even while you're on your period. I promise to you, all jokes aside. I'm not making this up. But you know what? I don't blame males who think this or the ignorant ones who think they catch you red-handed on the days you're not fasting. Then you have that awkward altercation in which he refuses to leave until he gets the reason why you're not fasting. You come up with a million reasons, but when you realize he's not leaving you irritably tell him your menstruating. He grimaces and walks away and pretends he never wanted to ask. Yeah we've all had that confrontation. I wonder why my mom always made me go to my room to eat, why I would lie to my dad and male family members "Yeah I'm fasting". I mean they had wives, sisters and other female members in their life that menstruated right? Wasn't it obvious why I wasn't fasting? Why did I have to leap through several hoops to make sure I didn't get caught eating. It's natural, my body was made this way, there's a reason I was given a perfectly legitimate excuse to not fast by god, so why try to censor it like it's a sin to even speak it? It's because of this censorship, that most men grow up completely clueless on this knowledge and the etiquettes of talking about women and their menstruation and how it affects them not praying or fasting during it. Also a newsflash, even though we get those few vacation days during Ramadan, we have to make them up. So no, I'm not lucky. No I don't get an easy break. I have to make up for the days I didn't fast. So think twice before asking a girl why she isn't fasting, and even if you do catch her eating or not praying, just move on. Quite honestly it's none of your business to ask anyone why they aren't fasting. Perhaps there is a health reason? Perhaps they aren't religious? Perhaps they fast some days and perhaps they don't want to? Whatever the case, this was just a three second lesson for those who honestly didn't know, or knew and didn't realize we have to make those days up. So try to make the second half of Ramadan less awkward, for all of us πŸ˜‚ Post inspired by @iamhamdaawan experiences πŸ˜‚and @binti.period
