Lots Of Men Still Don't See Tampons As A Basic Right


A new Survey was just released this week which polled more than 2,000 Americans on whether they thought having access to affordable tampons and pads should be categorized as a right or a privilege. Of the men surveyed just 46% agreed that is should be categorized as a right compare to the women surveyed who voted 65 percent that it should be a right. Advocates are working to convince lawmakers that tampons and pads should be less expensive and more available in public restrooms. In most states tampons and pads are subject to sales tax, and not considered a product which fulfills a basic need. Some cities are making legislation which makes menstrual hygiene products free and available in all public schools, shelters and jails in New York City. There is a long way to go, with 33 percent of men and 24 percent of women surveyed saying they disagreed that it was a right.

You just have to trust that people are out there waiting to love you and celebrate you for who you are. In the meantime, the reality is you might have to be your own tribe.
