Period Equity at UC Santa Cruz (America's Wackiest University)

"Period equity, or menstrual equity, refers to having equal access to free period products regardless of one’s gender, and, in turn, dispelling existing stigmas around menstruation."
-City on a Hill Press (UCSC)

In these dark times, it's time for some laughs, and what better source of humor is there than the University of California at Santa Cruz, America's Wackiest University and home of the Banana Slugs?

UCSC has once again become a trailblazer when it comes to recognizing marginalized groups-like women during that time of month. So now, in the name of period equity, the school has introduced tampon machines in its bathrooms-at least those designated as "all-gender" bathrooms in a particular building on campus. (Don't they mean "both gender"? Just askin'.

 "Earlier this quarter, the first free menstrual supply dispensers were installed in all-gender restrooms on the third floor of the Bay Tree Bookstore and in the Redwood Building."

 But Dear Readers, Let's don't be too harsh on the young lady pushing this idea. After all, she is just a young college student who is having all these ideas planted into her mind by the so-called adults who are responsible for educating her. Where else could a young person get the idea that a (publicly-funded) university should be giving out free condoms when those fortunate enough to attend the University of California at any campus can clearly pay for them? And if you think this is an equity issue, I say men can buy their own condoms as well.
