Last month, Brown University’s student association distributed free tampons and sanitary pads to restrooms across the campus, including men’s restrooms because, as student body president Viet Nguyen put it, “not all people who menstruate are women.”
The insanity is contagious: It has now enveloped another Ivy League institution — Cornell University.
Laura Gunderson reports for the conservative student newspaper The Cornell Review (via Campus Reform), Sept. 29, 2016, that by a majority of 78.6%, 3,034 voting Cornell students passed a student-sponsored #FreetheTampon referendum to provide free tampons and pads in all Cornell bathrooms, regardless of gender.
The reasoning behind Cornell’s insanity is the same as Brown’s — not all people who menstruate are women, when accounting for so-called “transgenders”.
In addition to voting, students also posted pro and con statements about the initiative on the Cornell Assemblies Elections page:
- Many of those who voted “yes” made claims along the lines of, “this is a basic human right, like water or shelter,” and that it’s “ridiculous” and “insane” that they aren’t free already. Many noted that condoms are freely available at the campus health center, so tampons should be, too.
- Those who voted against the referendum expressed concern over the potential financial burden the project would create and lack of planning, as well as the likely waste of the products, especially in the men’s bathrooms, considering that less than 1% of the population is “transgender”. Like voices crying in the wilderness and in vain, one student argued that “In any situation in which a discussion is being had about a given institution providing some good or service for free, it is essential to first be able to estimate the cost of such a provision prior to implementing it.” Another said that the proposal “seems expensive, and unnecessary.” Yet another student asked, “Having the school subsidize more products leads to an increasing cost for students to attend…where does the subsidizing stop? The school shouldn’t provide other services that aren’t directly relevant or necessary for education.”
- Some students attempted to stake out a middle ground, asserting that they would be in support of supplying the women’s rooms with free tampons, but not the men’s.
The issue will now be presented to the president of Cornell University for potential implementation, though the details of the proposal are still unclear. No doubt, like Brown University’s administration who applauded the distribution of free tampons, Cornell’s will also cave in to this latest madness in America’s lofty institutions of “higher education”.
By the way, there may be a sort of method to this madness.
After blogging for 7 years, I have come to the sad conclusion that there is no limit to human depravity. On a hunch, I did a search for “tampons as butt plug” and, sure enough, had my suspicions confirmed. See “I Like To Put Tampons In My Ass“. (A word of warning: The disgusting article is for “mature” eyes only, defined as those 18 years or older.)
There is a practical reason why gay men use tampons as butt plugs.
According to WebMD, the vast majority (90%) of men who have sex with men engage in receptive anal intercourse. But anal sex is fraught with health risks. In fact, “anal intercourse is the riskiest form of sexual activity” because the anus is not designed for sexual (or any) penetration:
- It lacks natural lubrication, unlike the vagina.
- The anus is full of bacteria.
- The anus’ skin lining is vulnerable to tearing and the spread of bacteria and infection.
One of the consequences of repetitive anal sex is the weakening of the anal sphincter — a ring-like muscle that tightens after we defecate — making it difficult to hold in feces until the person can get to the toilet. In other words, repetitive anal sex results in fecal incontinence.
Reuters reports on Feb. 4, 2016 that, using national health survey data from 6,150 U.S. adults, a study found that increased risk of incontinence from anal sex is particularly high for men who sex with men. While women who have had anal sex were 50% more likely than their peers to report having fecal incontinence at least once a month, the men’s odds of incontinence are three times that of women.
But, due to the relentless propaganda in popular culture (see, for example, a movie targeted at teens, Kingsman: The Secret Service), the practice of anal sex is increasing even among heterosexuals. According to a recent study led by Dr. Alayne Markland of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, as many of 37% of women reported trying anal intercourse at least once.
