I S T A X E D ?!!
a.k.a. period. a.k.a train a.k.a the time a.k.a flow. a.k.a. monthly visitor
Whatever you decide to call it, its your menstruation. That awkward topic that people avoid, which I do not understand considering it has been going on since the beginning of the human race.
But why is it looked down upon or seen as something that should be ‘kept to yourself‘ considering that without it…the world wouldn’t exist???! And when I opened DAZED AND CONFUSED and read that article about how Tampons are being Taxed I couldn’t believe my eyes.
T A X E D ?!!
I am sorry (actually not sorry) but that is ridiculous. How can razors, jaffa cakes, edible cake decorations, exotic meats or any other number of things currently not taxed as luxury items be overlooked, but apparently tampons are seen as a luxury items.
Oh…I’m sorry that my unforeseen and non-preventable shedding of my lining is a big disturbance to your daily lives, and it is such an honour to be able to keep this to myself without leaving remittances of myself all over London. Sorry to be crude but if it has really come down to this I think this is a major sign that the world is coming to an end.
Oh, and that nonsense they went on about pads being the best viable options…okay, well next time I go to a public swimming pool and the water turns red, remind me again about the whole Pad over Tampon thing and I’ll just bring on the biggest smile.
Reasons why the tampon tax is a joke:
1. You’re getting taxed for having a uterus
2. Men’s razors aren’t taxed. YES REALLY.
3. Other countries have done it.
And the worst part is that people are scared to talk about it? That is took a whole national and world-wide magazine to talk about it for people to actually raise action about it? FREE IT! FreeTheWoman inside! FreeTheTax, FreeTheTampon, FreeEverything!
So for now I’ll keep speaking out, because that seems to be the only way that change will come about.
Its only natural! don’t be ashamed.
