Women can't control the fact that they have periods so they shouldn't be charged for products to stop their vaginas from bleeding for a full week. Two pads a day for a week at boxes of 10 for 9$ adds up to about 10$ a month. With 12 months in a year and a total of 35 years of menstruation in a woman's life adds up to a total of 435$. Plus painkillers for cramps and medicine for nausea that's over FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS just for existing.


Oh yeah because people are tired of walking thus cars should be free! Because people will be hungry food should all be free! Because in winter people are cold thus coats should be free! There is a reason still, Why they cost money.

You never know what are they going to do with them. If you put the food free then the farmers aren't happy. If you make tampons free then no one will make it after consider they don't get the profit after them making the product, Thus making the tampons in the museum forever because there are barely anyone making it.

Profit is a very big factor. You can't just make things free. If this is the logic, Then everything should be free. Because we need money, Thus no. If I were a production worker at the streamline in which it makes feminine products, I'd get paid more than a hobo usually. If it was free, Then i'd have no money and i'd quit to make something better with money, Like computer GPUs. Then if that happens, If everybody really quits, Then it is not made, And there is no new feminine products on sale, And thus the global 49% of the population will completely suffer because it is not being made.

"FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS just for existing. "

You have to eat, Have a home, Have clothes. Compare to that a few periods are still better than starving to death.

"con mention that painkillers are not mandatory"

Doesn't mean they are free. Plus painkillers doesn't grow up the normal asphalt. Is needs manufacturing.

"Of course they should. "

Look old man, Feminine products aren't invented in the B. C era. How do you think these women survived?
Posted by anc2006 2 years ago
please don't say that anc2006 doesn't understand how painful it is to have periods. I know how bad it is to starve outside in the -10*f degree weather. That is probably worse.

Additionally, You don't know what they are doing. They could just throw all the pads in the river if they can grab as many as they want.
