‘Menstrual Dignity Act’ forces Oregon schools to provide menstrual products in boys’ restrooms

All Oregon public schools will now be forced to provide menstrual products in K-12 bathrooms, regardless of gender, along with instructions on “how to use” the feminine hygiene products thanks to the woke “Menstrual Dignity Act” signed into law last year by Governor Kate Brown.

The act was set to go into full effect during the 2022-2023 school year.

According to the law, “All education providers shall install in every bathroom at least one dispenser that does not require coins or money” and “is clearly marked as free in at least two languages.”

“Starting next year (2022-2023), products will be available in all restrooms (male, female and all-gender) in every PPS building where education occurs,” a statement from Portland Public Schools read.

“To ensure timely compliance, PPS ordered 500 dispensers. Dispensers have been installed in all elementary and middle school girls’ restrooms, and more will be installed in all remaining bathrooms, including boys’ restrooms, next year. Instructions on how to use tampons and pads will be posted in all bathrooms,” the statement added.

In tandem with that move, students are being taught in physical education classes about “the four pillars of Menstrual Dignity.” Parents are being advised to have similar discussions with their children in order to lessen the “shame and stigma” surrounding menstruation.

The Oregon Department of Education also issued a “Menstrual Dignity for Students” toolkit in March.

According to Fox News, it comes “complete with instructions on how to use menstrual products, segments on faculty and staff training, classroom instruction and tips for ‘menstruation-positive’ language for families.”

The kit also states that it is necessary to have the products in all bathrooms because a lack of accessibility disproportionately impacts “students of color, students experiencing disabilities, and students experiencing poverty.”

“Importantly, [the Menstrual Dignity Act] 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,” the kit introduction reportedly states.

“Research also connects gender-affirming bathroom access to supporting student safety at school,” it goes on to claim.

Gubernatorial candidate Bridget Barton was incensed over the bill being enacted and blasted Brown over the woke policy. She also slammed the liberal Democrat over her stance on abortion, according to Fox News Digital.

“Radical leftist woke policies are destroying Oregon from our streets to our businesses to our schools. But as a mom, a new grandmother, and a Republican candidate for Oregon governor, I can’t believe we’re even discussing this — America’s most unpopular governor, Kate Brown, is putting free tampons in the boy’s bathrooms of Oregon’s elementary schools,” Barton railed.

“Clearly Brown cares more about what’s going on in the bathrooms than what’s going on in the classrooms,” she added.

Oregon’s students reportedly rank 46th in the nation in reading and math. Barton contends that those poor scores are due to Brown removing allegedly “racist” academic requirements.

“We’re at the bottom of the barrel and the career politicians spend our taxpayer money on tampons for little boys,” she said. “I’m respectful of all, but it’s fair to let little boys be little boys, and little girls be little girls. Instead, leftist education bureaucrats are pushing this radical nonsense, spending precious class time coming between Oregon parents and their kids, creating activist factories instead of strong community schools.”

“Oregon’s kids deserve so much better from their schools; right now Oregon’s public schools don’t deserve our kids,” Barton bitterly remarked.

The candidate asserts that she is running for office to improve education in Oregon and to “put a stop” to leftist policies.

After the act became law, the Family Research Council tweeted, “Thanks to the Menstrual Dignity Act that just passed in Oregon, local taxpayers are now on the hook for thousands of new tampon dispensers in boys bathrooms.”

I wonder what the dispensers will look like after the teenage boys have fun playing with them. I guess the tampons will be used for female males who can’t go into the girls rest room for their tampons? Or is it for menstruating boys? Are we to believe that boys are menstruating? OH! I get it.

I don’t get it.Just “what” are BOYS supposed to “DO” with tampons?Females insert them into the vagina to contain menstrual flow from monthly periods. WHY do males need tampons? Diarrhea? THE “runs”?WHERE do “they” put it? ANUS?

I, for one, am interested to see what clever uses high school boys come up with for these products. Just wait for it.
