Just when you thought the modern-day feminist movement couldn’t get any more ridiculous comes this.
Known for being perpetual victims, many of those who view themselves as today’s feminists will literally complain about anything. And when you add a heavy dose of man-bashing to the mix (which is most of the time) … even better.
Hence the bizarre #IfMenHadPeriods hashtag that had some young and naive feminists dreaming of free and cheap tampons, if only…
#IfMenHadPeriods there would be free tampon dispensers every 20 feet, by law.

#IfMenHadPeriods Tampons would be cheaper and tax free

#IfMenHadPeriods tampons/pads would be free, you’d have time off from school/work, we’d have a pain killer that ACTUALLY stopped cramps.

Pads, tampons and cramp meds would be tax free and half the price they are now #IfMenHadPeriods
They really would be.

Right, because that’s how it works. Men in legislative positions make sure only women pay taxes.
But it wasn’t long before the hashtag took an even more ridiculous turn, because apparently, some men DO have periods. And the hashtag was being labeled as transphobic, or something.
While this highly cisnormative hashtag is trending, I want to remind everyone that trans men do exist + some have periods.

#IfMenHadPeriods shows once again how very few people respect Trans folks, have any real knowledge of biology, or understand basic decency.

Wait a minute here, who doesn’t have a grasp on basic biology? Oh, these folks:
Are we really trending #IfMenHadPeriods like trans men don’t exist? Let’s stop the gender essentialism and transphobia please

Thankfully, there was some sanity mixed with humor that came in and completely crashed the feminist party:
