The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is one of the most progressive, pro-LGBT organizations in America. They are on constant watch for even the slightest appearance of what they consider to be “inequality.” Their demands are usually extremely outlandish, absurd, and in opposition to reality and science. They purport to be fighting for “diversity” and “equality” but it seems as though they’re just fighting to push the LGBT agenda on everyone in America.
Their latest complaint involves a blatant denial of truth and biology. The group is calling for men’s restrooms to start including tampons. Their argument is that men have periods and that to not provide tampons in men’s restrooms is discrimination against “every person who menstruates.”
“While free menstrual products are not uniformly provided in women’s restrooms, they are almost never available in men’s restrooms, even for pay,” a statement released by the group reads. (Almost never? Are there even rare occurrences when they are?)
“Men’s restrooms are also less likely to have a place to dispose of these products conveniently, privately, and hygienically,” they add.
There’s really a very simple reason why men’s restrooms generally do not contain tampons and sanitary baskets and that would be the very real fact that men do not menstruate. If an individual is menstruating that would mean they are a woman.
The ACLU disagrees with biology claiming that it isn’t a “full or accurate portrayal” to state that only women “menstruate, get pregnant, or breastfeed.” This is a blatant assault on common sense and reality.
Now, we all know that the individuals they are referring to who may earnestly need a tampon while in a men’s restroom are, of course, not one single real man that would enter the hypothetical men’s room, but rather, biological women.
“Menstrual stigma and period poverty can hit trans and non-binary people particularly hard,” the statement continued.
The group links to their “Menstrual Equity Toolkit” where everyday folks like you and I can get indoctrinated with “key arguments and materials for advancing menstrual equity through legislation” (emphasis ours, because really?) The ACLU is also advocating for menstrual products to be made available in the men/boys rooms of public schools and homeless shelters as well.
“Menstrual equity is a basic equity issue,” they assert in the statement. “Just as we have regulated the provision of toilet paper and paper towels in public restrooms, so too should we do the same for menstrual products.”
Access to pads and tampons is not a universal right, so there’s no basis on which to demand that biological women have access to pads or tampons in whatever public restroom they may use.
This is not, at the end of the day, however, about accommodating the very minute part of the female population who may at some point find themselves in need of menstrual products.
This is about normalizing gender theory and the convoluted, chaotic argument that “men menstruate too.”
Like everything in the trans movement, it is about demanding the rest of us accommodate those who attempt the biologically impossible: to truly live their lives as a genuine member of the opposite sex.
They’d like us to do this from where we may use the commode in public to the way we use language.
Over on the ACLU Twitter page, they make this perfectly clear.
There’s no one way to be a man.
Men who get their periods are men.
Men who get pregnant and give birth are men.
Trans and non-binary men belong.#InternationalMensDay

Is this really about “menstrual equality,” or is it about redefining reality for the sake of a political agenda?
