Some people claim that there are some topics that even the most daring writers and publishers prefer not to touch. From menstruation to birth control, hot flashes, and growing middle-aged, do we tend to shy away from such ordinary and mundane topics? Is it really an issue of female taboo topics or do we struggle with similar male taboo issues as well? Why is this? What makes a topic taboo? How do we get over that stigma so that we can get back to telling good stories?
