Student Govt. at Michigan State Demands Free Menstrual Products in All Campus Bathrooms
“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.”
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Why on earth is the university’s responsibility to provide these products in the first place? Providing those products is the woman’s responsibility. Yes, I said it! Only women, including women pretending to be men, menstruate, not men or men pretending to be women. Good Grief! A few years ago it was female students at Georgetown demanding birth control pills, now its tampons at Michigan State.
You’re being logical and showing common sense. So, that makes you a heteronormative white male bigoted person who must be reported to the Vice President of Diversity and Inclusiveness.
You will recognize her by her size 56 dress, scowling expression, Doctotates in fields invented within the past twenty years, and her hyphenated name.
Don’t be a heteronomative white male! All bathrooms means “ALL bathrooms” even the bathrooms that were architecturally designed to serve people who identify as male but still need hygene products. I have been told that the women’s bathroom in the student union had a vending machine, but in the name of gender equity, a second machine must also be installed in the men’s bathroom. By this reasoning, we should remove some of the commodes from the women’s bathroom and replace them in urinals.
“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.”
Don’t forget us .410 shotgun owners.
If you can afford college, you can clearly afford tampons, even if you’re mentally ill enough to think you are no longer a woman.
If you’re a woman you can afford tampons. Even if it means a cheaper call plan and a budget phone.
The college where I worked started doing this ten years ago, and I really liked the policy. The Men’s room nearest the labs was well stocked with pads and tampons. Nothing beats a sterile pad for cuts and scrapes and for stopping the bleeding. A tampon works well for injuries in the mouth and other places you need a small sterile bandage.
Whenever there was a spill in the lab, we’d head for the restrooms to get pads to wipe it up. The custodian got used to our notes, “Please refill the menstrual pads and tampons in the Men’s restroom.” The administrators never objected to our heavy use of pads and tampons, because this was a relatively cheap form of virtue signaling.
Times with minor spills were “Light Days”?
And don’t forget that a tampon wrapper can be used to roll a joint.
WTH – if you’re menstruating, you’re a female. Deal with it. Go in the women’s bathroom, and bring your own sanitary products if you need them.
