SALEM, OR – The state of Oregon recently enacted a new law that is going to put taxpayers on the hook for having tampon dispensers installed in boys’ bathrooms inside every public school and college in the state, with the express purpose of the legislation meant to affirm the delusions of people enduring a gender identity crisis.
The legislation signed by Governor Kate Brown has been dubbed as the “Menstrual Dignity Act,” which initially started out as a bill intent upon ensuring female students at school have access to feminine hygiene products – a.k.a. tampons.
But when it comes to the state of Oregon, absurdity is always around the corner, and such was the case for the Menstrual Dignity Act, as legislators decided to expand feminine hygiene product access to all boys’ restrooms in public schools and colleges.
Writing for The Daily Signal, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins claims that this “latest madness, which affects every public school and college in the state, is expected to cost up to $400 a machine.”
According to the guidelines that followed the legislation, it’s plainly spelled out that this effort to install costly tampon dispensers inside boys’ restrooms across the state is being done to appease the perennially gender-confused hyper-minority within Oregon.
“Importantly, this law affirms the right to menstrual dignity for transgender, intersex, nonbinary, and two spirit students by addressing the challenges that some students have managing menstruation while minimizing negative attention that could put them at risk of harm and navigating experiences of gender dysphoria during menstruation.”
Also, any references to “women” or “girls” menstruating are nowhere to be seen within the published guidelines for the Menstrual Dignity Act, instead the guidelines explicitly instruct school staff to never associate menstruation with women or girls – calling for staff to adopt language like “menstruating students.”
“Refer to menstruation without calling in gender in order to be gender-affirming for trans, non-binary, and two spirit students. Emphasize physiology during puberty education more broadly. Use ‘menstruating students’ instead of ‘girls’; Use ‘menstrual products’ instead of ‘feminine hygiene products’; Explain ‘someone with a uterus and ovaries may begin to menstruate’ instead of ‘girls may begin to menstruate’ during puberty education; Use gender-inclusive ‘students’ ‘folks’ ‘everyone’ ‘learners’ or ‘they/them’ instead of ‘boys and girls’ or ‘he or she’ when referring to students.”
The state of Oregon is quite literally telling school staff to completely remove any mention of there being biological males or females to coddle students who’ve immersed themselves in the gender-bending nonsense.
Outside of the language policing and costs associated with having these feminine hygiene product dispensers installed in boys’ bathrooms, another issue at hand is going to be the potentially excessive waste brought about by young boys using these products for purposes they weren’t intended for.
In the state of Illinois, they’d enacted a similar endeavor – and lo and behold, issues arose of young boys using the pads and tampons in a rather jokingly manner.
At Deerpath Middle School, where the boys’ bathrooms were equipped with feminine hygiene products, it was reported that young male students “‘used’ sanitary pads and tampons in the only way young boys can, sticking pads hither and thither, and performing science experiments on the absorption capacity of tampons.”
Undoubtedly, the aforementioned is one of likely many school janitors’ nightmares when it comes to restroom maintenance. But this should also serve as a parental nightmare in Oregon as well, as this Menstrual Dignity Act again affirms that public school restrooms are potentially unsafe with them being designated as welcoming of both sexes.
