Entitled Feminists Now Demand Free Tampons in "Menstrual Equity" Bill...
If you've seen all the beached sea lions noisily waddling to and fro across Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco... You likely know what a feminist protest looks like. And smells like. The major difference? Feminists have a goal beyond stuffing their gullets with fish. They're now salivating at the chops for free tampons and sanitary pads. Take a gander at their demands below.
In February, Representative Grace Meng of New York introduced a federal bill that would let people buy menstrual products with flexible spending accounts, offer a tax credit to low-income individuals who regularly use tampons and pads, and require companies with 100 or more employees to offer free menstrual products in workplace restrooms. The name of that bill? The Menstrual Equity for All Act of 2017.
Feminists and friends are beginning to rally behind the idea of "Menstrual Equity." A few things first...
Menstrual equity is non-phrase coined by blubberous, whining whiners. Here, allow them to explain...
["Menstrual Equity" advocate and lawyer] Weiss-Wolf remembers the first time she publicly used the phrase: Pressed to define 'menstrual equity,' she said, 'Fairness for how women are treated in society because they menstruate. They shouldn't have to pay more for the simple biological fact and for needing a medically necessary item.'
Clearly these women took a page out of de Blasio's book (see 'My Body, Your Tax Dollar?' NY de Blasio Signs Law Mandating 'Free' Tampons...). They want a policy similar to New York's to be mandated nationwide. Because nothing screams "I'm an independent woman!" like demanding free tampons. Paid for by the government.
The only problem? Items aren't free simply because they're necessary to survival. See food and water, for instance. Things cost money. This is an elementary lesson in money, but obviously, these gals were absent from school that day.
And no, just because women have periods and men do not isn't reason enough to provide women with items to block the bleedage. Are we going to provide men with underwear with flaps? Protective cups? Nose hair tweezers? Women also need booby baskets. Are we also going to provide them with bras? Are you seeing the Give a Mouse a Cookie segue here?
Asking the government to eat the cost simply because you need certain things isn't an argument. You know, because it's a financial impossibility. Hence socialism doesn't work (read Russian Chess Grandmaster Gary Kasparov Smashes Bernie Sanders Socialism and REBUTTAL: Why "Medicare For All" Can Never Work). Alas, such paltry ides such as "economics" apply not to these walking vaginas. Thanks, feminism!
