The scent of sage wafts out of the windows of the hut, filling Blu's nose as she kneels in the garden...

sparkly drags herself up the steps and into the cabin. though it isn't her time, she feels this to be a rough and just a hormonal day and is weary. She picks up the coral and smiles, silently thanking blu with her expression, as she doesn't want to interupt the peace of the spinning wheel...

she looks around at the beauty unfolding before her, and the strength of all present. the kitty-mascot rubs on her legs and she feels comforted in a deeply peaceful way that only womyn can truly feel and understand. She picks up the kitty and finds a space in the corner to snuggle in...taking a moment to ponder the new roundness to the kitty's tummy, her attention is taken by the smell of the lavendar in the afgan she's wrapped in. She settles with the kitty for a short nap, and will be on her way soon...

I don't profess to have the foggiest clue what they're talking about or what's going on at the virtual Menstrual Hut at the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival Discussion Forum, but the fymynyne dream wyrld of Sparkly Giraffe, Blu Voice Girl, Monarch Grrl, Dragonfly, Not the Mouse and others makes for bizarre and inexplicably fascinating reading.

Now I know what it really means to be a woman....or shall I say womyn.....that's really funny, perhaps they should just take some Midol and eat a pint of Ben & Jerry's.

I forget, what magical properties do Womyn have? Or do they just have that spiraled horn that does like six dice worth of damage?

I don't think I'm woman enough for all this. Another good one:

"Nods to all the womyn who bleed the sacred moonblood, this is what ties us together as females, back to the first human female who had the first menstrual cycle. This IS our womonpower, and what males fear!"

Exactly how can a womyn say that there "a deeply peaceful way" to "feel comforted" that "only womyn can truly feel and understand"?

I claim that the mann is mysterious and elusive, and that beneath his moonblood-fearing exterior he conceals a secret way of feeling comforted which he knows womyn think only *they* know but which he, too, can truly feel and understand in his mann-heart.

is the womyn's movement part of some welsh nationalist conspiracy?

Yeah, but we all read through it for, like, ten minutes or more.....
