This may be a new scientific discovery for those who don’t know how anatomical functionality works, but men don’t menstruate. That hasn’t stopped Syracuse University students from demanding that the college men’s rooms be stocked with tampons.
The student body government at Syracuse University has voted to approve funding for tampons to be given (for free) in all male restrooms on the campus, and volunteers have been selected to restock them. One student leader at the university insisted that tampons are not “feminine products.”
The Daily Orange reported that ten Tampax tampons and ten Maxithin pads will be placed in every female and gender-neutral restroom on various buildings on campus, including the Schine Student Center, E.S. Bird Library, Life Sciences Complex, Huntington Beard Crouse Hall, and the Hall of Languages. This makes sense, considering that both women and women pretending to be gender-neutral menstruate. What doesn’t make any sense is that the student body will also require five tampons and five Maxithin pads to be placed in each of the men’s restrooms.
Various universities have made menstruation hygiene products free to its students, just as Brown University in Rhode Island did this past September. An increasingly self-entitled generation is seeing tampons as a human right. The experiment failed at Columbia University, however, after the trial experienced “low interest” when – it turns out – women prefer their own brand or type of menstrual products and don’t mind paying out a few dollars for something they’re most comfortable with.
Taking the cake, however, is the University of Arkansas. Its student government passed the “Menstrual Equity for All Act,” which stated that the university “believes in equality for all individuals regardless of their sex or gender identity.”
That resolution claimed that the placing of tampon dispensaries only in women’s bathrooms, “limits the ability of members of the transgender community to safely and easily access [menstrual products] on-demand,” and that the university “has a duty to create equal access to education, and therefore must prioritize near-universal accessibility to Menstrual Hygiene Management at no cost to students forthwith.”
