When I first started out as a conservative blogger, I assumed I’d be writing about tax policy and the War on Terror. I never assumed I’d be writing about colleges giving free tampons to men. Why would I? Men don’t need tampons. Women do, what with women being the ones who menstruate. It’s crazy, preposterous even, to think otherwise.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison is rolling out a new pilot program to provide free menstrual products in several of its campus bathrooms — including some men’s restrooms. But in a third venue, the Red Gym…
Giggle, the “red” gym.
…the products will be available in all of the building’s bathrooms, he said.
Asked why women’s hygiene products are needed inside men’s bathrooms, Wagner said: “Menstrual products will be available in all of the bathrooms of the Red Gym so that they are available to any student who might need them.”
It appears the products are needed in men’s bathrooms to benefit transgender males (biological women who identify as male).
Free tampons are the leftist cause du joir. Really, periods in general (see ‘My Body, Your Tax Dollar?’ NY de Blasio Signs Law Mandating ‘Free’ Tampons… and ‘Free Bleeding Marathon Runner’ SHAMED by…The Actual Winner?). Tie that with the “transgender all the things” push, and you have an opportunity to pander no progressive can be expected to pass up.
Also, men don’t need tampons because men have penises and just no.
If you need a tampon because you have blood coming out of your wherever, you’re a woman. If you’re a woman, you shouldn’t be in the men’s restroom because you are not a man. You may think you’re a man, but thinking you’re something doesn’t make it so. If I think myself a deity, I cannot part the traffic like Moses parted the Red Sea to free from Pharaoh’s insistence that men should wear utility kilts.
Men are men. Women are women. That’s not hate speech, it’s reality. If you believe otherwise, you might be a liberal with a case of the delusions. Or a transgender person, who needs medical help that doesn’t include mutilating your body to conform with your “gender identity.”
I walk that back zero. Now bow down and worship me, I’m identifying as a deity.
