Bringing new meaning to the leftie term “tampon justice”?
From demanding free tampons, to placing tampons in men’s restrooms, to wearing tampons as earrings on national television, the left has long been obsessed with tampons. There for a while, “tampon justice” was an actual thing.

That is what every woman wants, I think
