Tampon Tax is Being Eliminated in Many States, but is that ‘Fair’?

A “tampon tax” is simply the sales tax on tampons, pads, and other female hygienic products. Feminists are outraged at this…but why? They do not think it is fair for tampons to be taxed because we cannot help that we bleed, as women. Therefore, many states are beginning to get rid of it.

Okay, well now that this can of worms have been opened, there are MULTIPLE things that “shouldn’t be taxed” by those standards.

To name a few:

  1. Toilet paper – everyone has to go
  2. Food – everyone needs to eat
  3. Band-aids – everyone gets hurt
  4. Diapers – babies poo too
  5. Clothes – we all need clothes

See where I am going with this? I think it is slightly ridiculous. ESPECIALLY when states like New York are now offering free college. How exactly are they planning to pay for all that free schooling if they start taking the taxes off of everything?

You can’t have your cake and eat it too.

Also, they are upset that some of those taxes are going to pro-life groups and charities that help pregnant women …..yet they were perfectly okay with church taxes funding abortions.


Yeah, makes perfect sense. Liberal logic.
