We often see reports of 'period poverty' where women and girls can't even afford sanitary products, and this is usually followed by called to have the prices reduced. For those who do not really know, you can buy a box of 20 tampons for less than £2. I should know because I like to stick them up my ass.

But seriously, a box of twenty will last a woman for more than one period. So are we supposed to believe that there are people in the UK who can't even manage to scrape together less than 2 quid a month for these things? If they were that poor wouldn't they be wearing tattered fucking rags and eating shit out of bins? Are people just too fucking thick and irresponsible with money to properly plan for these things? Two fucking quid a month. Get a fucking grip. I'm sick of hearing this story and have no sympathy for the thick cunts who can't plan for this shit when they know it happens every fucking month. There's no one in the UK who isn't on the fucking street that can't scrape together two quid a month unless they are completely retarded.

I dont know the specifics here but, in many cases, its all a matter of priorities. I have a sister who is always bitching about not being able to afford to pay her utilities, school items for her kid, the list goes on and on. Yet, she always has money for smokes, lottery tickets and beer. She is a useless cunt.

Yeah it's a load bollocks imo. Some girls canto use tampons for obvious reasons but even pads aren't that expensive. 5 quid a month is fuck all for something that's considered an essential.

You can put me into that useless cunt category as well.

£5 or £2 or whatever they cost might be the difference between eating for some lassies, heating their house, paying the rent or feeding their children.

Tampons should be free.

Also there are some young lassies (10-16) starting out on their periods whose parents have absolutely fuck all money to buy them Tampax. What are they supposed to do, stick a sponge down there?

For everyone or just for people eligible through poverty?
Everyone.

Women don't choose to have 'times of the month'. Why should they have to pay for shit like this that is part of nature.

Condoms are free in this country, but you choose to fuck people. You don't choose to have periods, they just happen.

Right but the feminine hygiene market in this country is worth a shade under half a billion annually ... does the government pay Tampax for their products or do they just get fucked in the ass by the UK market?

Should toilet roll be free?

Show dem balls bro
Have you guys seen that movie "Period: End of Sentence"? If you haven't I highly recommend you do. Amazing to see how little men in certain countries have no knowledge of women and how vaginas work in any capacity.

TBH, I can see the arguments for having sanitary goods for people with no money to spare, absolutely £2 to some people is less than they have in their pockets day to day ... I'm just interested in how these ideas actually work if we just make the whole thing free.

The toilet roll analogy is okay,

As for your argument that it's worth this and that in terms of revenue, so is beer and smokes and whatever.

Don't make women who have absolutely no money pay for their sanitary products. I suppose I could go back on my argument about whether it should be just for those girls/women who have no cash have to pay for things that stop their blood pouring out of them.

Someone mentioned condoms so similar to that. you can drop into any family planning, doctors office (in Scotland - i've no idea if it's like this everywhere...probs not, actually) and pick up free jubies so you could just have boxes of basic value pads/plugs there too. Foodbanks anaw, maybe. Let's be honest, only the most needy will use the service.

Bodyform and Tampax would still keep their market share, mostly, and release their top tier adverts.

Yeah, why not... wouldn't really have an issue with this. Seems like a decent compromise.

Hold up, I can get free beer?

Yeah, like I said... agree, don't make women who have absolutely no money pay for this but that's a fair bit away from "just make it free for everyone". Hey, I would even make the essential products like toilet roll free for people who genuinely can't afford it.

The issue around the "tampon tax" was farcical. Yes they should be VAT exempt, but the whole "it's a sexist tax" when fucking toilet paper is taxed at 20% and tampons are at 5% was pathetic. The articles that were saying the tax meant some women had to choose between eating and sanitary products were laughably stupid, as they were indirectly saying that if the 5% tax were removed that this would allow some women to buy a meal.

A bit of basic fucking maths shows that even a 20 pack of the most expensive brand going (Tampax) are 2 quid. So the tax portion of that is 10 pence. So without the "tampon tax" women who couldn't eat would have an extra 10p a month...so these women apparently know where to buy a meal for 10p. Amazing. A 20 pack of Morrisons own brand (quick google) reveals them to cost 95p. So the tax on that is just under 5 pence.

However, for poor women...yeah have them available for free. But the idea that the reduced rate of VAT is the difference between women being able to afford them and not is ludicrous. You could find 5p in coppers lying on the street on the way to the shop. There's nobody in Britain who finds 5 pence a month a significant sum, not even homeless people.

But toilet paper and tampons should be VAT exempt. Comparisons with condoms are made by feminists somehow implying that it's because men want them, when the pill is free to all women on the NHS too. Contraception is free if you want it and condoms are actually rather more significant for women than they are men, seeing as though women get pregnant and women contract STI's more easily than men from heterosexual sex too.

The cheap the best are 50p for 10. I can't see any reason why they can't be free.
