University of Florida snowflakes put fake blood on their pants to protest the need for feminine hygiene products for ALL students. So they walked around campus with fake menstrual blood on their pants claiming that men get periods too…Huh???
A student government committee rejected a proposal to provide free menstrual products to female students through the mandatory Activity and Service Fee, expressing concerns about applying mandatory fees paid by all students towards “funding that would only benefit the female half of the UF student body.”
“Today I held a little protest for free menstrual protects…And I say menstrual not feminine because menstruation should not be gendered. Some men get periods.”
PROTESTING “REPRODUCTIVE JUSTICE”
“This is a part of reproductive justice,” Shannon Matthew, who was among the first students to join the protest, told the Alligator. “I’m not ashamed of my period, and I don’t think anyone should be.”
NOT ENOUGH FREEBIES?
During the meeting, some senators pointed out that free menstrual products are already available on campus through the Field and Fork Pantry.
Students are allowed to take up to three bags of menstrual products per week—each containing eight tampons, five liners, and five pads—but student activists retorted that the option is too limited.
CALL US CRAZY…Should it be the responsibility of these students to provide their own health products? What’s next?
SOME OF THE COMMENTS FROM PROTESTERS:
*”An unexpected period can disrupt a student’s day and distract her if she does not have access to a pad or tampon”
