Blood Sucking Liberals

And You Maybe Thought They'd Drained the Entitlement Swamp?

Needy woman Giovanna Plowman, forced to recycle her Tampons after draining  them for her only source of nourishment!

portrayal of stupid things, but Plowman is real.

  It’s the terminus point of modern feminism: make the deeply personal very publicly political, and get someone else to pay for it! If one man is keeping you in the style to which you’re accustomed, you’re a kept woman – perhaps even [shudder] a stay-at-home mom. But if your sugar is funneled from thousands of hapless tax payers through a legion of faceless bureaucrats, you’re  a tower of feminist self-determination.  Fight the power, sisters! Demand government tampons!

Last week, Jessica Valenti (Feministing founder, NARAL director and Planned Parenthood heroine) asked via Twitter, “Anyone know a country where tampons are free or somehow subsidized?” The question sparked an obnoxious social media backlash, which, in turn, sparked an obnoxious retort by Valenti in her column for The Guardian: “The case for free tampons.” The liberal media, from Cosmo to TIME, followed suit with the “compelling argument” and “great idea.”

“The high cost of a product that half the population needs multiple times a day, every month for approximately 30 years,” Valenti began in her August 11 piece, “is simply, well, bullshit.”

But cost was hardly the crux of Valenti’s argument. “This is less an issue of costliness than it is of principle,” she later admitted, because “menstrual care is health care.” She explained how, like birth control, “the idea of women even getting small tax breaks for menstrual products provokes incredulousness” not only because “people lack an incredible amount of empathy” but also “because it has something to do with vaginas.” (Ooh, the “V-word.” Bet Valenti felt a transgressive thrill just writing it!)

To back up her claims, Valenti cited how The United Nations and  .... [Need More?]

As Ed McMahon used to ask Johnny Carson, "And how insufferably stupid are they?"

Without food, we starve, which is unhealthy. Following Valenti's shrill logic, food is healthcare and I want her to buy mine.
Toilet paper and sanitary wipes are healthcare because they remove e. coli from our butts, so she can buy that for me too, every day, not a few days/month.
How it all comes out depends on who loots the other faster.
Somebody shoot her and put her out of our misery.

I must spend too much time at this blog because I had the same thought as the General. No rough stuff either, I want Charmin.

Unfortunately, your point is invalidated by the fact that men use TP, too.
I suspect that it's all about her resentment over bein' equipped with a vagina instead of a harmless joy button.
Either that, or she's just a habitual whiney brat … or a commie.

Easy fix ... have the government fund an independent researcher (eg me) to do a $15 million 3 year study on making your own tampons from recycled products. Newspaper, scraps of cloth from the Goodwill box, drier lint, Cherokee hair, dried mice, whatever. They'll publish my findings and then everyone can follow that and roll their own for free.

I even have the catchphrase ready to go: "When you see red, go green!"

After all, what do you think women do in Turd World countries, or have done for most of human history. It's not like Tampax has been around since 4000 BC.

Heck, I bet I could modify one of those Laredo cigarette making machines to do the job.

Why can't they just use old rock band Tshirts? ya know, from Queen or Cream.
Teen girls can just use teabags.

In my day women used pieces of carpet and old socks. Worked good.

Drew458, Egyptian women were using something that approximated a tampon about 4,000 BC.

A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up &down the aisles..

The sales girl notices him and asks him if she can help him.

He answers that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife...

She directs him down the correct aisle.

A few minutes later, he deposits a huge bag of cotton balls and a ball of string on the counter.

She says, confused, 'Sir, I thought you were looking for some tampons for your wife?

He answers, 'You see, it's like this, yesterday, I sent my wife to the store

to get me a carton of cigarettes, and she came back with a tin of tobacco

and some rolling papers; cause it's sooo-ooo--oo- ooo much cheaper.

So, I figure if I have to roll my own .......... so does she.
