#OneDropNFTs is a grassroots art movement and challenge hosted by ntent.art Twitter: @ntentart. The goals of #OneDropNFTs are as follows:
#OneDropNFTs is an inclusive movement. Not all women menstruate and not all people who mensturate are women. Regardless of one’s gender, sex, or whether or not they menstruate, everyone has a story to tell about menstruation and it is worthy of being told. By telling our stories and sharing our art, we fight against the censorship of menstruation.

Menstrual blood and period themes have been censored in recent history. How will the Web3 world respond?
In 2015, ads for the reusable period underwear company Thinx featuring fruit and raw egg were deemed offensive and inappropriate for viewing in NYC subways by Outfront Media, the advertising contractor for NYC's Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA).
2019 - Drag queen Manila Luzon posted this image and caption to Instagram:
Ru said my ORIGINAL Curves & Swerves Runway look was in “bad taste” and production told me to wear my back up.
I was really looking forward to wearing this gown that I think celebrates a perfectly normal human experience! Many of my fans are young women who may feel pressured by society to be embarrassed by periods. It’s empowering to teach young women about their bodies, encourage them to celebrate them AND to question people who tell them not to!
My goal with this look was to normalize menstruation by looking sick’ning even if I was on my period!
Instead, i decided to wear the beautiful quilted dress you saw in the episode because it is not my show, it’s Ru’s. But because of Ru, I have my very own platform to speak for myself and show you all my interpretation! ❤️

2015 Artist Rupi Kaur’s photo depicting blood stained pants and sheets was removed from Instagram twice for violating their terms of service:
thank you @instagram for providing me with the exact response my work was created to critique. you deleted a photo of a woman who is fully covered and menstruating stating that it goes against community guidelines when your guidelines outline that it is nothing but acceptable. the girl is fully clothed. the photo is mine. it is not attacking a certain group. nor is it spam. and because it does not break those guidelines i will repost it again. i will not apologize for not feeding the ego and pride of misogynist society that will have my body in an underwear but not be okay with a small leak. when your pages are filled with countless photos/accounts where women (so many who are underage) are objectified. pornified. and treated less than human. thank you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀
this image is a part of my photoseries project for my visual rhetoric course. you can view the full series at rupikaur.com the photos were shot by myself and @prabhkaur1. I bleed each month to help make humankind a possibility. my womb is home to the divine. a source of life for our species. whether i choose to create or not. but very few times it is seen that way. in older civilizations this blood was considered holy. in some it still is. but a majority of people. societies. and communities shun this natural process. some are more comfortable with the pornification of women. the sexualization of women. the violence and degradation of women than this. they cannot be bothered to express their disgust about all that. but will be angered and bothered by this. we menstruate and they see it as dirty. attention seeking. sick. a burden. as if this process is less natural than breathing. as if it is not a bridge between this universe and the last. as if this process is not love. labour. life. selfless and strikingly beautiful.
Period poverty refers to the inadequate access to menstrual hygiene tools and educations, including but not limited to sanitary products, washing facilities, and waste management. Through education and advocacy we can greatly improve access to hygiene facilities and products, reduce stigma and shame, and encourage education about menstruation.
