Well, I guess if that's what some women wish to do, then it's up to them. It's their bodies after all. In just the same way I can shit myself in public, if I ever have the desire to do so.
It's one way to get a train seat all to yourself.
But the phase --- “man” made inventions, intended to inadvertently rape a woman during her period', --- points not feminist thinking, but to third world religious bullshit.
Either way, I can't see it catching on, in the same way Skateboards or the Hula-hoop did.
"The second, being that tampons, pads, and other feminine hygiene products are “man” made inventions, intended to inadvertently rape a woman during her period, thus furthering her victim status as a woman living in a world run by men."
some people NEED a slap
i can imagine shops / cinemas / trains / buses and so on might have a lot to say about this.
Hahahahahahaha I'm sorry but that is hilarious! I'm definitely going to stop using tampons so I'm not raped by the phallic, cotton wool instruments of patriarchy *sarcasm*
For the record it would be uncomfortable, icky and itchy. I doubt anyone would be able to cope like that unless they were purely thriving from the public reaction to it. I don't think the comparison would be nose bleeding (as that would be really thin) but more like having snot down your face.
The person writing that is more than a little patronising though. At the end of the day it is the persons choice what they do.
There was another women who did a 30 day sew from wool inserted into her vagina..
I read an actual feminist blog on the subject and it sounded a lot more.. sane. It was more saying that women should get used to what their bodies do naturally and accept it rather than feel ashamed of something that's perfectly natural. (Not go bleed all over themselves in public)
