Oh. My. God.

I am very far behind on my blog reading, but Belle pointed out this little gem from The Lipstick Chronicles.

A Menarche Party is a formal celebration of a girl beginning her “cycle”. It includes crossing over a red ribbon as a symbol of crossing over into womanhood. Seriously.

I would like to take this moment to thank my mother for NOT doing this for me and I will be making a vow not to do this to my daughter. I will also admit that I am being pretty judgmental about this. Can you come up with any reason why this might be a good idea? Or, do you agree that this is a cracked idea?
