It may seem strange to teens that men didn’t have access to tampons in America’s restrooms during the 1960s. Walls that contained urinals were once the walls of cottonless wastelands. However, that dark age is likely to end thanks to the Oregon state legislature. The Menstrual Dignity Act was signed by Kate Brown, Democrat Governor of Rhode Island, in 2021.
Every public education provider must ensure that students have access to sanitary pads and tampons at no charge through dispensers in every school’s student bathroom.
It is clear: A “Student bathroom” is a bathroom accessible to students. It includes a gender-neutral bathroom, a female-only bathroom, and a male-only bathroom.
House Bill 3294 will become effective July 1, 2019. Boys will be able to receive period care at school during the 2022-23 school year.
Fox News pointed out that the law applies to all restrooms, regardless of age.
Lately, Tampons have been the center of attention. Menstrual products were never front and center in history. They seem to be really enjoying it.
However, not everyone is thrilled about boys finding ovarian accessories next to their toilets. Bridget Barton, the GOP’s gubernatorial candidate, is one example.
She has harsh words for soft supplements
“This is an implosion total of the family; it’s a violation of the family.”
According to Bridget, confusion can result from:
It’s confusing for children. Then, when they reach puberty, they have more confusion about their bodies, have real difficulty understanding their world, and go into depression. We’re seeing more evidence that’s causing them to be confused, and depressed, have to act out, and have serious problems in the future.
It is not hard to imagine a boy asking “Where do you put this?”. Hopefully, he will find the answers.
Bridget states that parents are disturbed by the idea of fibrous bullets being loaded into boys’ bathroom stalls.
“Complaints” isn’t a good description of it. Many parents haven’t heard about the background information that teachers will be required to teach in sex classes and health classes. It’s almost unbelievable, I hear from parents all over the country.
Hence: They are in shock. They are in disbelief. They’re angry. They’re leaving the schools fast and Oregon has run out of charter schools and private schools for them.
Oregon is a state that places a lot of emphasis on education’s effectiveness. Therefore, improvements have been made.
Oregon Department of Education links standardized testing to White supremacy, @JessicaChasmar reports: https://t.co/kirYIeJUBL

The February Fox article:
Monday’s workgroup at the Oregon Department of Education (ODE), declared that standardized testing was rooted in White supremacy, and has been “weaponized against students of color”. …
After Democratic Gov. Kate Brown signed a July bill that removed the requirement that high school students demonstrate proficiency in math, reading, and writing before they can graduate.
The school system is concerned about white supremacy but is dedicated to white personal products.
There’s also more to the story: While Oregon fights racism in public education and Oregon is promoting homeschooling, some of that “antiracist work” is being countered by the tampon takeover.
According to MSNBC, at least that’s what it seems. It’s as insidious as a period without the right accessories.
It may seem harmless, but the insidious racism of the American religious right’s obsession with homeschooling speaks volumes, writes @AntheaButler. https://t.co/cETwck5n27
