ACLU Wants ‘Menstrual Equity’ in Men’s Restrooms
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is demanding that feminine hygiene products be placed in men’s restrooms in order to achieve “menstrual equity” for transgender and “non-binary” individuals.
“While free menstrual products are not uniformly provided in women’s restrooms, they are almost never available in men’s restrooms, even for pay,” the ACLU complained in a statement, claiming this is “discriminatory”: “Men’s restrooms are also less likely to have a place to dispose of these products conveniently, privately, and hygienically.”
“Some arguments that challenge discriminatory laws based on sex-linked characteristics have made the point that ‘only women’ menstruate, get pregnant, or breast-feed. But that is not a full or accurate portrayal — and menstrual stigma and period poverty can hit trans and non-binary people particularly hard.” (“Period poverty”?)
And Democrats accuse the right of being anti-science. Contrary to leftist dogma, the science is settled: men cannot menstruate.
