UCLA: You're A Special Kind of Stupid, Aren't You?: "Govt Should Provide Free Tampons" For Individuals Who Menstruate As Women To "Slow Flow Of Gender Inequality"

We Wish we were making this up.

Not sure which is loopier, the article, or the editor’s note. Will government provide me with dark chocolate? It’s necessary for my mental health…
Editor’s note: This blog post refers to individuals who menstruate as women because the author wanted to highlight gender inequality in health care. We acknowledge that not all individuals who menstruate identify as women and that not all individuals who identify as women menstruate, but feel this generalization is appropriate considering the gendered nature of most health care policies.
To most government officials, feminine hygiene products are a luxury item. But, every day, women are being poisoned by their own bodies because they lack access to even the most essential health products.
Meanwhile, most men have no problem getting covered for pills that will help them get a boner.
Although still greatly outnumbered and underpaid compared to their male counterparts, women have made so much progress. Yet inequality still lies in the most basic areas of human well-being. Women are still facing unequal treatment when it comes to health care and are paying out of pocket for necessary female health products, particularly tampons and pads.
Thank You Nick and The Bruin

Hey Janet, "Let's go, we don't have to listen to this crap." Nice Job!
