Let it flow.
As you may be aware (since nobody seems to be talking about anything else!), presidential candidate Donald Trump
has come under fire for recent comments he made on CNN regarding Thursday's GOP debate moderator and Fox News host Megyn Kelly.

a website with templates for tweets -- and a glittery GIF:
The website and Twitter campaign were spearheaded by Amber Gordon, who launched the feminist site
Femsplain earlier this year.

In the midst of dealing with her own period and listening to Cher's "Red" (Yes!), she found herself thinking, "Man, I would love to do nothing more than tweet at Trump and let him know I'm on my period." The site provides an easy way to do just that (complete with instant emojis).
Gordon notes that the site, which was "whipped up in about an hour," goes beyond simply tweeting at Trump to also provide a place for people to share their own stories:
