Tampons Are Coming to the Men's Room at Brown University
The student body president at Brown University, Viet Nguyen, will personally be handing out free tampons and pads in men's, women's, and gender neutral restrooms on campus, Newsweek reported Tuesday.
"We wanted to set a tone of trans-inclusivity, and not forget that they're an important part of the population," Nguyen explained in an email announcing his bathroom project. "I'd be naïve to say there won't be push back [sic]. I've had questions about why we're implementing this in male bathrooms as well. It's an initial confusion, but people generally understand when we explain it."
How do you explain it? "Men can have periods, too." This is why the feminist hashtag #IfMenHadPeriods made a whole bunch of LGBT activists on Twitter insanely angry. Apparently, declaring the biological fact that people born with an X and Y chromosome (previously known as "men," in the benighted ages) do not get periods is "transphobic" and "essentialist."
"Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break in pieces."
