    Don't blame me, I didn't write the title.

    Kamala B.K. is tiny. She's barely 5 feet tall. A bright red ribbon sets off her dark hair.

    As she walks past our guesthouse in the village of Tankut, we try to get her to come over and talk to us. But the 14-year-old won't come over to the porch.

    "Because she's menstruating, she should not be entering another person's house. It's disrespectful," says Cecile Shrestha of Wateraid.

    The nonprofit is working with girls and women in western Nepal to end a tradition called chaupadi — that's held them back for thousands of years: "When they are menstruating, no matter what, they stay outside, they eat outside and they sleep outside," Shrestha says.

    Outside in sheds. In Kamala's village they consist of a raised platform, with no walls, some have thatched roofs.

    Kamala tells us she'll sleep in one of those sheds tonight. We ask her to come closer to talk, but she covers her face with her hands and won't move.

    "She's scared we are going to beat her," Shrestha says. Because stepping on to the porch would break a menstrual taboo.

    Kamala believes that if she enters the house while she's menstruating, the people and animals will get sick. The gods will be angry and she'll bring a curse onto the house. She's also been told her hands will curl up and become deformed.

    We try to reassure Kamala that no one will hurt her, but she's scared and runs away.

    The Rebel

    Three hundred miles away in the capital city of Kathmandu, we visit a completely different world.

    Prakriti Kandel is 15. She's studying for her SATs. And with short hair and black-rimmed hipster glasses, Prakriti already looks like a college student.

    I like your idea about dawgshed. Chicks on the rag should be banished to the hoochie bin for 5 days. The quality of posts for most of the chicks here obviously drops off when the axe wound is spilling blood.

    Where the fuck did he say anything about Dawg Shed? :fil:

    None of you boys get a period, yet most of you post absolute crap all the time. What do you attribute THAT to? :coffee:

    My wife's not usually a problem during her period, but if it meant she'd start blowing me, I'm all for the shed idea.
