Colleges Are Putting Tampons In Men’s Bathrooms Because of ‘Menstrual Equity’

(Daily Caller News Foundation) Colleges across the country are putting tampons in men’s bathrooms in an effort to bring about “menstrual equity” in restrooms.

Colleges Are Putting Tampons In Men’s Bathrooms Because 'Mentrual Equity'

The University of Wisconsin-Madison, Brown University and the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities are just a few colleges who placed menstruation products in their male and gender neutral bathrooms, reports the Chronicle.

The idea is that transgender men, women who transitioned to men, might need tampons because they still have periods.

“That’s become a really popular rallying cry and source of activism on college campuses — the idea that these products should be freely available by the schools that these students attend,” Jennifer Weiss-Wolf, who came up with “menstrual equity” explained. “This problem is eminently solvable, through a lot of avenues, and college-campus organizing is one of them.”

A student proposal for free tampons at University of Rochester won a $5,000 award from the school’s student government. The proposal suggested placing baskets with tampons and pads in some bathrooms, including a men’s room.

“We have smaller baskets in men’s restrooms, but the reason we do that is because there are some men on the campus who menstruate and so it’s just the whole idea of inclusion and making sure that nobody’s left out — it’s a very easy thing,” Lance Floto, a vice president with the student government.

Bowdoin College also put free tampons in their men’s rooms, only to have someone defecate on them.

“I feel like it was either a person who did it as a joke or didn’t understand it, or it was a deliberate thing like, ‘these people aren’t welcome in this bathroom so I’m going to poop there,’ which would be considered a bias incident,” said Vice President for Student Affairs Benjamin Painter.

    This is so funny . . . I can really appreciate how far out these people are getting. Its like they interject ludicrous ideas just to see what happens. Awesome. I’m pretty sure men don’t need those items. LoL !!!

    • 7LibertyForAll

      They’re talking about the women who “became” men and still have their internal woman parts. Although, I would have to wonder if those parts would even work because I’m sure they’re dosing themselves with testosterone….not conducive to normal female processes. As you said, they are interjecting their ludicrous ideas; absolutely insane.

      • wandamurline

        You really don’t change your sex…you become a not a man, not a woman, which equals an IT.

        • 7LibertyForAll

          I know that; any thinking person knows that. Did you notice the quotes around BECAME?

        • Larry Brule

          I LIKE IT. AN IT, YES.

        • Rippie

          Wow, you aren’t going to pretend to be a Christian, are you. Just a bigot.

          • jmark72

            Bigot? Maybe Bigotry is valid when dealing with BatSh*t Looney Liberal nutcases!!!!

          • conservative since 1962

            To a bigot like “Rippie”, any disagreement with his opinions (even stating a fact) proves that the person is a “bigot”

          • Rippie

            What “fact” is that? Show me where Jesus says to belittle and victimize people who are not like you. He never did.

            It’s also almost hilarious that the people who are ganging together to justify their bigotry calls the ONE PERSON WHO CALLS THEM ON IT a bigot.

            Why? Awyou afwaid peopow wiw see you fowhatyouaw? A widdo punkazz bigot??? A LIAR??? NOT a Christian???

            Aww… poor little whining baby…

          • conservative since 1962

            A male has one X chromosome and one Y Chromosome while a female has two X chromosomes!
            Since when is stating that “bigotry”?

          • Rippie

            Calling a person an “it” is bigotry. If you’re defending that, and you are, then you must also be a bigot.

            Wouldn’t you rather be a decent person than to be a hater, a bigot? You’ve blown 55 years being a jerk. Try the other side of the road.

          • conservative since 1962

            Your double standard is showing!

          • Rippie

            HIGH(you)larious.

            Pointing at a burning building (you) and yelling “FIRE!” does not mean that I am on fire.

            Just as when I say you’re 3 rocks short of being as smart as a bag of 4 rocks, that applies only to you, trust me.

            Calling out bigots isn’t bigotry: It’s the duty of proper Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, of any decent person anywhere of any faith.

            You, “sir,” are a bigot. I’ve done my duty.

          • conservative since 1962

            I will pray that you come to your senses and realize that “I’ve done my duty.” will not earn eternal Salvation!
            You seem to be the epitome of the left-wing nut’s description of a Christian.

          • Pig1

            Why is a person that is a rapist or a pedophile considered sick but a person that can’t accept their own natural sexuality is to be coddled and accepted. Especially when these kind of delusional afflictions are perfectly treatable. And those of us that see the truth are to be scorned and called bigots. If you’ve got this problem consult a mental health professional ASAP before you destroy your body.

          • Rippie

            By the way, you didn’t state that. You simple decided that trans people are “it.” Because you’re a bigot.

          • conservative since 1962

            I most certainly did state that “A male has one X chromosome and one Y Chromosome while a female has two X chromosomes!”, get your facts straight!
            You are the one who is using circular reasoning trying to prove an invalid point. You believe that I am a bigot because you said “You (meaning me) simple decided that trans people are “it.”” then claimed that, because of your assumption that I am a “bigot”, I must have made that decision!

          • homer1057

            I will show you: Matt6:2/Mark 7:6/Luke 11:44/John 2:15 Jesus MOCKED these people for their stupidity, and HE called em snakes and Hypocrites and vipers! SEE, the reason why you think that Jesus “LOVES:” and is only capable of loving people, no matter what is because you get this from the so called liberal Jesus Loves crowd! Jesus does HATE you know: John 3:36/Proverbs 6:16-19 /Zech 8:16-17/Mal 1:2-3//Mal 2:16 and OH by the way, the Bible says in Nahum 1:2-6 that The Lord is FURIOUS, and He will take Vengeance on His adversaries. He is in the tornado and the Hurricane! I’d suggest, and NOT to demean you etc BUT to edify, that YOU get a KJV Bible and any other, and compare and then read, and STUDY! Because “THIS” God of Love, which people ONLY think will love is a fearful God, and who can abide HIS Indignation!

          • Rippie

            Completely off topic reply. Thanks for nothing. Learn to read for comprehension and come back.

          • conservative since 1962

            Why give advice to others that you will not follow for yourself?

          • Kenny Albert

            Nor does he know the definition of bigotry because he obviously is one.

          • homer1057

            I “KNOW” what a BIGOT is, I have a 1828 Websters Dictionary and I know! SEE, being blindly attached to a creed such as the Gospel of Jesus Christ is NOT Blind, BUT, “LIGHT” and a soundness of mind! I have PROVED (1 Thes 5:21KJV) this from day to day! I have also studied (2 Tim 2:15 KJV-ONLY) this, and I am sure! What makes you sure, and what have you studied? IF it isn’t the KJV Bible, then you can’t be sure or of a sound mind! NEVER take the establishments word on anything, and never believe the lies they tell!

          • Rippie

            Wow. A 200 year old dictionary.

            And KJV is a smoldering mess of mistranslations, written to control weak minds at a particularly uneducated time. Minds like yours, evidently.

            Reading that Bible translation is like thinking you know everything about surgery because you read a 12th C Barber’s dissertation on humors and demonic infections, and have not taken in anything in the following thousand years. So, you bleed people to death.

            Just like drowning people to prove they aren’t witches.

            Brilliantly IDIOTIC.

          • Rippie

            So, you believe that bigotry is valid? Another fake pretender claiming to be Christian.

            You can’t be both. If you’re a Bigot, you can NOT be a Christian.

          • wandamurline

            Get yourself a copy of the Bible and read what God has to say about these people….then get back to reality.

          • Rippie

            Show me in the NEW COVENANT, because Jesus VOIDED the Old Covenant except for the Commandments, where it says anything remotely like you do, where HE said anything remotely like that.

            The ONLY time He mentions gays is in the reply to a few disciples about divorce. And His words about “eunuchs,” the euphemism of the time, like we use “gay” now, were more than defensive.

            Show me where Jesus says that there are “Its.” Or that you should be a pantsload to them. Show me.

            I have several translations of Bibles here, literally a stack of Bibles, and have read others.

            I’ve never been able to find any utterance by Jesus even slightly or remotely like your disgusting bigotry.

          • wandamurline

            And Jesus also said, have you not heard which my father has said that ye obey.

          • Rippie

            And accepting everyone as they are, equally and without hatred or malice, equitably and fairly, as if they are your own, is exactly what He demands of us all, and I obey.

            So, what’s your problem?

          • Keith Amherst

            Stupid is as stupid does and you are stupid. The bible gets interpreted by many people to say what they’d like to hear, just like you, to justify what ever it is they want to justify. It gets twisted like a pretzel.

          • Rippie

            Sure. By none more than haters who want to find loopholes, even if they are voided by the Savior, to justify their hatred, bigotry and narrow minds.

            This is a classic analogy to the Hamiltonian v. Jeffersonian view of the Law and the Constitution, that is, if it’s not allowed, it’s prohibited v. if it’s not prohibited, it’s allowed.

            But if Jesus actually goes out of His way, when pressed on ANOTHER issue, to praise “eunuchs,” that is gay people, then the problem is clearly not the gay people, it’s the bigotry against them to which He’s speaking.

          • homer1057

            Jesus DID “NOT” void the Old Testament, He voided the Law as a means of getting Saved! 2 Tim 3:16 KJV says “ALL Scripture” is given..and Is Profitable…Maybe you ought to SEE Romans 1:21-28 KJV Sir: you might want to read the BIBLE, and I mean the KJV Bible not some perverted text, and see what a BIGOT really is: and according to an 1828 Websters Dictionary it says Obstinate and blindly attached to a particular creed or ritual…I think that the LORD was Biggoted in that HE said “YE MUST” be born again! Read Nahum 1:2-3/John 3:36 etc etc . Just one more so-called Christian that is as blind as a bat backing into a blizzard! One final thing: How can YOU, or anyone expect to find what YOU feel you should find in a Bible that was written anywhere from 4ooo to 2000 years ago to meet the Spiritual needs of mankind and yet apply to all so all would be able to get those points! Helocopters, are they in the bible? Yes, Nahum 3:2/and is the Prism in the bible, yes Job 38:24 and the mini-skirt that’s in Isa 47:3 Man, just because you don’t “SEE” things in a Bible does NOT mean it isn’t in there! That book was written to be read and guide over 6000 years of mankind’s history! I’d suggest you read, search, and study that BOOK! I mean a KJV Bible!

          • Rippie

            The KJV is historically interesting but hideously mistranslated and based on later mistranslations. But you’re weak-minded and seem to like being misled.

            Insisting people be born again is not bigotry if you are the Creator of all people.

            And if God is infallible, gay people, even trans people are HIS people, and his creations. AREN’T THEY.

            Jesus’ life was a fulfillment of the Old Covenant, the Law (Commandments) and the Prophets. And with that, EVERYTHING CHANGED and he swept away most of it with the New “deal,” or Covenant, and much Law was voided.

            Remember, too, Jesus was about bringing in EVERYONE to Judaism, not keeping anyone out. Sure, this was a problem to certain of the apostles, but that’s their problem… which ends up poisoning some of the NT as “they” “recollect” the events of years gone by, to which most writers were never witnesses, or even alive at the time.

            The Bible isn’t “written” recently. Only a daft moron thinks that. It may be retranslated or retransliterated into more accessible language for the time (the most popular translation in the world, the NIV, is exactly that, and the one I usually START from is the ESV, which I find to be a good blend of KJV phrasing with more modern wording from earlier source texts). But the one I RELY upon for ACCURACY and that goes back the furthest in its source material, and is painstakingly researched and every SYLLABLE debated as necessary, is the NEB, which is an artistic masterpiece that transforms reading the Bible into beautiful literature, alive and richly flowing imagery and meaning and intent from its pages. The recent REB has improved corrections (a lot has been discovered or deciphered since the 1950s-70s) from even older sources, but it’s lost some of its lyrical qualities, probably a result of the change in linguistic agility of younger people in the last decades, and the people who did the work 50-70 years ago have mostly surely passed on.

            I’m not an idiot or a tyro. I have a LITERAL “stack of Bibles” in paper and dozens more translations or analyses in my Kindle. The KJV may have been where I started reading the Bible in the 1970ish era, but discovering other translations and then the NEB when it was finally available in an *affordable* study paperback version (that I could learn much more from and also annotate myself), I felt I was finally rockin’ the Bible and that it was all coming together.

            I tried to find a gf in the 90s a Daily Chronological NEB, but it never existed. I’d have bought it used. I did, though, after seeing what translations she liked to read, settle on an NIV for her since she’s dyslexic, in larger print. A bit pricey for a paperback, but she was delighted and was able to understand events in linear time, though she loses some of the completeness of the books themselves.

            My point is that if you’re relying upon the JKV, that may have been terrific for your great-great-great grand pappy and mammy, but we have superior tools today.

            You’re doing yourself a HUGE disservice.

            And by so doing, inflicting it upon others. And I, for one, do not appreciate that.

          • john vieira

            Interesting…how can someone be bigoted about something that is not????

          • Rippie

            A question that floats aimlessly because you haven’t referenced anything. A pointless waste of your time and mine.

            Try saying what you mean instead of attempting to sound more sage than you actually are.

  • ProudPatriot

    Wtf is wrong with people… men don’t menstruate.

    • rennyangel2

      If this continues, within a generation, colleges and u’s will be dead, empty buildings.

      • Gerry Costa

        Most of them already should be !!!!!

      • Cheryl Detar

        Many of them are already dying. Enrollment is down in many of the liberal colleges. Teachers are being laid off and building and dorms are being closed. Colleges that provide a “real Education” will be the benefactors of these liberal schools.

        • rennyangel2

          Mizzou applications are off 8%, and it is closing dorms and firing 400, but mostly custodial and grounds staffs. Profs may have to empty their own waste baskets. It should only happen across the bd. My little jr. college has had enrollment plummet and first blamed it on Sandy in 2012, but it is now 5 yrs. later, so the admin. has revamped the entire teaching schedule format to supposedly make the college more friendly. But if you are going to broadcast that you don’t want white males or Christians or “normal” people, then no administration should expect high enrollment.
          Parents should look into online colleges (cheaper and sometimes easier), or find institutions with classical curricula that emphasize Western civilization and all that it has provided the world with.

    • Jackalyn Morrison

      That just goes to show you it doesn’t matter what you have done to alter your body it doesn’t make it so because what you were born with you will always be that gender!!

    And now we know why college kids are called educated idiots beyond their intelligence! They stupidity starts at school with the brain washing college professors! Liberals are idiots!

    If they menstruate —- THEY ARE NOT MEN !!!!!!!! What a lost f*****g generation of people. We will not have American adults coming out of these so-called colleges and universities — we will have idiots who think the world owes them a living, the government should hand them anything and everything they want and treat them like 3 year olds. SURPRISE SURPRISE — the world doesn’t do that. “menstrual equity” — another libtard phrase that was pulled from the clouds to fit their very ignorant agenda. How really pathetic this is.

      No, it was $5,000!

        For 10 or 12 Gauge shotguns, those of us that are partial to 20 or 28 Gauge or .410 guns find that they are too large to fit those smaller bores!

          I am partial to the .20 myself….I was thinking they came in a petite.

          • conservative since 1962

            Maybe they do, NOW!

        • Keith Amherst

          The “men” they fit could be described as being of small caliber but large bore.

  • Lin

    OMG, I heard it all now. First of all, a transgender man if they have gone through the change will not have their period. This is going overboard.

  • Wayne The Seine

    How about some scrotal lotion in the Ladies room….let’s think of all the possibilities. And of course we have those few freaks who have had their tongues split thinking they are lizards….how about a basket of free insects for them.

    1. Shut off all government funding for tuition for colleges, if the liberal feces have to work part time to pay tuition, they won’t have time for this crap.

  • chris VN

    What more proof do they need, to know that a person who has periods is a female????

  • Jeffrey A Jones

    Those things are great for protecting 50s and 60s car doors from rust. Soak them in engine oil and drop them into the doors, keeps them from rusting out on the bottom as they are prone to do. Take as many as you can from the dispensers, great public service.

    And…the brave “man” who defecated on the free tampons at Bowdoin College – way to go! Your retaliatory behavior is no worse than the men born with male DNA thinking they can now menstruate and need protection, as well as change societal thinking to share in their delusions.
