Activists at Brown U. Place Free Tampons in Men’s Rooms

“Not all people who menstruate are women.”

The ongoing lunacy over gender continues unabated on college campuses.

Brown University activists are now planning to make sure men’s rooms are equipped with feminine hygiene products.

Tampons coming to men’s rooms at Brown University

Brown University’s student body president will be hand-delivering menstrual products to all nonresidential bathrooms on campus, including men’s rooms, with the help of 20 other students.

Viet Nguyen, President of the Undergraduate Council of Students, announced the initiative in a campus-wide email Tuesday, saying he wants to communicate the message that not all people who menstruate are women, according to Newsweek.

“There’s been a lot of conversation about why pads and tampons are a necessity, not a luxury, but not a lot of action. We wanted to take it into our own hands,” Nguyen explains in the email, observing that “low-income students struggle with having the necessary funding for food, let alone tampons.”

By putting menstrual products in women’s, men’s, and gender-inclusive bathrooms, Nguyen aims to “set a tone of trans-inclusivity, and not forget that they’re an important part of the population,” but is under no illusions that the effort will be universally popular.

“I’d be naïve to say there won’t be push back,” he preemptively concedes. “I’ve had questions about why we’re implementing this in male bathrooms as well. It’s an initial confusion, but people generally understand when we explain it.”

You’ve got to be kidding me.

“Not all people who menstruate are women.”

I suppose that is ~technically~ true. There ARE a number of very, very rare conditions where a 46XY Karyotype or (some variation thereupon) individual with complete gonadal dysgenesis has been given the right hormones to cause their Uterus to menstruate.

I think that it is a poor use of resources to attempt to accommodate such a small percentage of the people on the planet by putting feminine hygiene products in every male bathroom. Most will sit unused for years, possibly decades, and the majority will likely eventually be hijacked to the nearby Women’s bathrooms when they’re short.

But, you know, Progressives. They feel good about it, even though it’s a massive waste of time, effort and other people’s money.
