Dear Feminists

You don’t deserve any man or woman’s respect simply for having a vagina between your legs. Stop feeling so entitled.

We deserve respect for being people until we do something so horrible that we no longer deserve that respect.

That is all the entitlement we feel.

Which makes us probably a lot less entitled than you feel.

In the United States, access to tampons and pads for low-income women is a real problem, too: food stamps don’t cover feminine hygiene products, so some women resort to selling their food stamps in order to pay for “luxuries” like tampons. Women in prison often don’t have access to sanitary products at all, and the high cost of a product that half the population needs multiple times a day, every month for approximately 30 years, is simply, well, bullshit.

- The case for free tampons (via stuffmomnevertoldyou)

You know, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anybody suggest that toilet paper or paper towels in public bathrooms shouldn’t be free.  We’d consider it outrageous if that very basic necessity were to be missing, or provided only for purchase.

And yet.
