Embarrassed || Spoken Word by Hollie McNish

Recently I came across this video the other day, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. I found this video to be extremely powerful. The poem raises many questions about what is considered “appropriate” in our society today. The words also pushed me to imagine myself eating my meal in a confined space where it smelled like urine and feces, which of course made me cringe. What is so embarrassing about something that is so natural?
Why are we as a society not ready for this? Why do we hide mothers behind closed doors?

And what does that say about our culture?
