periods are gross. people say it's "just blood" but that is exactly it. it is blood. that smells. and has uterous lining in it. i'm not saying it should be taboo but it's not someting to be too relaxed about in my opinion. i get the idea that some men just say periods aren't gross because they want to seem politically correct. being politically correct is all well and good, in moderation of course. it's when you put on this act that you are the most accepting and non-offensive person in the world that it just takes the piss. personally, i find any bodily fluid/discharge that isn't mine to be disgusting (even if it is mine) so i call bullshit on people who says it's not gross.
i don't think i'm wording my opinion that well but i cba changing it or adding more so i'll just leave this here.

I mean, I guess it's "gross" in the fact that it's not really pretty, but they are natural. It's natural, happens to every girl, and is just a part of life. It's not disgusting and it shouldn't be banned from conversation. I want to be a medic, I can't expect to deal with trauma if I get grossed out about a natural human bodily function.2
