"Katniss--dear god you're bleeding!" "What? Where?! Oh, no, Peeta, that's just...um..."

I wondered about that. Like do they just use a leaf or...?

And yet it's still nowhere near as large of an issue as what the hell is supposed to happen with periods in the Twilight universe. And I apologize for making the umpteenth comparison between the two but it fits.

Maybe they gives them medication beforehand so they won't get it in the arena.

That's what I was thinking. In the book, didn't it say they might've given the guys someyhing so they wouldn't grow beards or whatever? Maybe they gave the girls something for periods.

That's what I was thinking too, but I think Suzanne Collins should have made Katniss mention it. That, and the fact that she hardly goes to toilet. Collins has no problem going into the details when it comes to violence and gore so I can't see why she "forgot" to mention these things.

It's like taking a shower at Hogwarts. It's not an important detail for the plot so there's no point mentioning it.

It kind if is in a survival theme plot though. Like showing James Franco drinking his urine in 127 Hours.

YES, exactly. In Harry Potter, showering wasn't important. In the Hunger Games, these things do matter because it's about survival.

Maybe it's understood that nothing really happened when people took dumps. They took their dump or piss, covered with soil, and moved on. No mutts, tributes, or traps. Besides, the thought was probably regarded as unimportant by the Author.

LOL what if the Careers find you when you're in the middle of taking a dump? I mean, it's a pretty vulnerable position to be in.

Maybe the capitol gives tributes stuff that will make then not able to poop or pee, much like the beards and the periods.

by Anonymous 12 years ago

I don't really care whether they poop or not, I just feel Suzanne Collins should have mentioned exactly how it all works. Perhaps I'm just being nitpicky though...

People that are starving/stressed usually don't get it, so I don't think that was an issue.

What about the overconfident career girls who had most of the supplies and food?

I've heard girls sync their periods...

by Anonymous 12 years ago

Not immediatley, but after a period of time. Imagine sorority houses. Oh dear god

The girl with the strongest hormones will control who will have their periods when. It syncs up.

by Anonymous 12 years ago

It would probably help their self-defense though. What with hormones :). Though it might attract some sort of animal...
