“Transgender people, non-binary people, and gender non-conforming people are especially vulnerable to the effects of not providing free menstrual hygiene products in all restrooms”
This is nothing more than virtue signalling, yet they treat it like it’s some kind of civil rights emergency.

MSU student gov demands free menstrual products in ALL campus bathrooms
Free menstrual products in all campus bathrooms is the latest demand of the Michigan State University student government.
Passing a resolution June 24, the Associated Students of Michigan State University assert “transgender people, non-binary people, gender non-conforming people,” and women are able to menstruate.
Further, these groups “are not given the same access to these products in the restrooms that coincide with their gender.”
“Transgender people, non-binary people, and gender non-conforming people are especially vulnerable to the effects of not providing free menstrual hygiene products in all restrooms,” the ASMSU resolution states before citing hardships.
Transgender people are twice as likely to be unemployed, menstruating can be difficult due to ‘gender dysphoria,’ and “60% of transgender Americans already avoid using the bathroom out of fear,” are claims pulled from ACLU, Teen Vouge, and Reuters.
Pad the Mitten, formerly PERIOD MSU, Mission Menstruation, and the MSU Women’s Advisory Committee for Support Staff have successfully helped provide and advocate for women’s hygiene products on campus.
By holding donation efforts and spreading awareness, the groups have helped place menstrual vending locations across campus.
Releasing a statement shortly after the legislation’s passage, ASMSU clarifies, “In support, ASMSU strongly agrees with the mission and values of Mission Menstruation and Pad the Mitten.”
