‘Menstrual Equity Club’ Formed at Boise State University

The group plans educational events. Sounds like such fun.

‘Menstrual Equity Club’ forms at Boise State

An officially recognized student organization at Boise State University is aimed at promoting “menstrual equity.”

The “Menstrual Equity Club” formed in 2019 with the mission of raising awareness about period poverty and menstrual health. The group also intends to serve the campus and community through educational events and menstrual product drives, while breaking down the stigma surrounding periods.

According to The Arbiter, the Boise State student newspaper, the club accepts “menstruators” and “non-menstruators.”

“The club is accepting of all members, menstruators and non-menstruators, to learn and further our mission!” according to the group’s official page.

Shannon Cobb, vice president of the Menstrual Equity Club, told The Arbiter that they wanted “to bring the menstrual movement to Boise State”

Rylie Wieseler, president of the group, told the newspaper that they don’t use the word “women” in an effort to be more inclusive.

“We try to have our space be inclusive. That’s why we use the term ‘menstruators’ instead of ‘women.’ Many people menstruate who do not identify as women,” Wieseler said.

Wieseler urged students to join the organization, including non-menstruators and cisgender men. Wieseler called for legislation, which she says is “often male-centric” to consider the group’s agenda.

Society is doomed

I learned in Lamaze class (a wonderfully un-woke and practical training for couples with a new baby coming) that when a bunch of women, erm menstruators, spends a lot of time together, their periods tend to sync.

Is the purpose of this club so that the menstruators can menstruate together?

    But wait, are menstruators still menstruators when they’re pregnant? Because then they aren’t menstruating. Is it like a temporary gender change during pregnancy, from menstruator to non-menstruator?

    As they say: go with the flow.

What’s the matter with these people?

I mean that seriously.

A similar group where I worked started putting menstrual products in the men’s restrooms. That was a wonderful idea! Nothing beats those pads for dressing cuts and sopping up chemical spills.

They stopped putting the pads in the men’s room once they noticed that more pads were being used out of the men’s room than out of the women’s room.

As a California refugee moving to Idaho, this pains me to read. Conservatives tend to ignore this stuff until it is too late. It’s too late in California. How long until Idaho is completely poisoned?

I’d donate to buy the group fancy lapel pins / brooches for all its members, on the condition that they agree to wear them at all times in all places.
Here’s your sign, kids.

“Many people menstruate who do not identify as women,” Wieseler said..
I hate to break it to Wieseler, only females menstruate, no matter how much a guy wants to be a woman, HE IS STILL A GUY.
Good grief.
If my child attended this school, tuition money would be yanked.
I’m old enough to remember when kids went to college to LEARN, not identify.

    These kids can’t help it. They are products of DNA. Of course they do stupid things. They are products of parents who work hard, sometimes multiple jobs, to get the money to pay the tuition, exorbitant tuition, so they can do stupid stuff and after 4 years, or more, still don’t have enough knowledge to be a night manager at Carl’s Jr.

    That menstruator – non-menstruator divide is looking an awful lot like a binary system. I’ll stop here,I see uncharted waters ahead… there may be dragons…

I’ve read the post and all the comments and I STILL don’t know what the group is all about. We have raised three children; I was the reluctant pain giver at Lamaze for our second and a willing participant for the next one, our third. It’s not as if I don’t know a bit about the subject (I’m 75 now); what the devil do these people want to accomplish?

On the other hand, forget the question. I will happily awaken tomorrow morning and not really care.

Bryan Harsin was recently announced as the new head coach for Auburn football. Some asked why he would leave Boise State, especially since he’s a native hometown boy who has left the State program a couple of times before only to return after a year.

I’m starting to understand why he left Boise State for Auburn.
He’s fleeing. Who can blame him?
