With attitudes of ownership towards female bodies like this, it’s no wonder society struggles with the concept of ‘my body, my choice’ with regard to abortions. If a woman you supposedly love is being given pain and discomfort by a part of her body, and you can’t imagine why that is more important than your own appreciation of that part of her body. http://fuckyeahwomenprotesting.tumblr.com/post/154983670545/nestofstraightlines-flowerlygirls#notes
Female sanitary products are not a luxury; they are a necessity, and therefore should not be subject to luxury tax. Especially when mens razors do not have luxury tax. Placing luxury tax on a basic female necessity shows that women are viewed as inferior and there needs are not as important as mens.
