What’s Wrong With This Picture? Menstruating Woman Edition

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Instagram is at it again.  Remember when Instragram twice deleted the photo by Rupi Kaur of a fully clothed woman lying on a bed, because the woman’s trousers showed a period stain?  (See here.)  Looks like women’s periods are just … too gross for Instagram.  Last week the company shut down photographer Harley Weir’s account because of art photographs of a model with menstrual blood on her legs.  The images are viewable here.  The images have now been restored to Instagram and the company has apologized.
