A group of seventh graders who organized a tampon-themed cookie protest after their main veto on granting free sanitary products was considered & # 39; powerful & # 39 ;, & # 39; creative & # 39; and & # 39; awesome & # 39 ;.
NARAL President of Pro-Choice America and mother of two Ilyse Hogue, 50, shared the moment on Twitter and revealed that her friend's daughter is one of the students behind the organized kickback.
Social media users – including many parents – were stunned by the male educator's reasoning that the young students & # 39; would abuse the privilege & # 39; and begged his excuse.
Peaceful protest: a group of seventh graders are praised for their blow back to the director, who bake tampon-themed cookies after saying no to providing free sanitary products
Praise: The tweet about the cookie protest came from pictured activist Ilyse Hogue, who said her friend's daughter belonged to the group of young students
The widely dispersed chatter from Dallas, Ilyse, reads: & # 39; My friend's 7th grade goes to a school where the kids organized free tampons in the bathroom. The male director said no because they would abuse & # 39; the privilege & # 39 ;. The children decided to hold a cookie protest. See the tampon cookies! & # 39;
The position has since received more than 24,000 likes and has evoked nearly 700 responses from furious men and women.
The responses varied from sarcastic to shocked.
& # 39; I look forward to learning more about the black tampon market that these children are apparently obscuring by the school that made tampons available & # 39 ;, read an answer.
& # 39; I am sure his response is based on his experience with children who abuse the privilege of accessing free toilet paper and soap, & # 39; read another.
A woman praised: & # 39; Good for them. These children give me so much hope. & # 39;
Mini activists: Twitter users both praised the ingenious & # 39; tampon cookie protest & # 39; of the young student, while others criticized the reasoning of the male director for saying no
In a comment that was appreciated by hundreds of people, a female tweeter said sarcastically: & # 39; Maybe the girls have to show that they don't use free tampons by sending them back to the director when they're done. & # 39;
Many men also went over the wire and expressed their shock about the director's logic.
& # 39; Children would benefit from basic hygiene products? Is he afraid that girls will just have their period for fun, & a man asked.
In a rare comment that agreed with the director, a woman said she thought there might be & # 39; jokes enough & # 39; would be with the free sanitary products.
However, she was quickly stopped by others who said that children without soap and toilet paper could do without
Jokes: While almost everyone praised the students, a woman offered that the free sanitary products might be enough for & # 39; jokes enough & # 39; would be used although it was quickly shut down
Others agreed with their own experiences of comparable situations – which had different outcomes.
One woman wrote: & # 39; Our male director approved a pantry for personal hygiene (two years) ago. It is appreciated and not misused. We didn't ask before we set up a shelf in the girl's toilet this month (pads, tampons, and monster size deodorant). Also appreciated by the girls.
& # 39; I (was) in the toilet restocking the shelf when a few guest students came in. They were excited to start a similar board at their school. If we give the children a chance, they will be kind and generous. & # 39;
A good example: a Twitter user said her school where she worked successfully a & # 39; personal hygiene pantry & # 39; has implemented
Hidden: A Chicago-based teacher remembered how she and her classmates had a & # 39; stock & # 39; feminine hygiene products had been hidden by a student himself
However, another woman said that her daughter's principal was not the same.
& # 39; My daughter went to a small, private Catholic school for a while (we are not Catholic) and it was suggested that a small cabinet in the powder room would be installed for products from that period, the director refused, because & # 39; The younger students may have questions. & # 39; & # 39;
Ilyse & # 39; s viral tweet comes just days after it was revealed that the health director of the state of Missouri had kept a spreadsheet of the periods of planned patients.
Dr. Randall Williams, who is pro-life, testified at a hearing this week that he kept a spreadsheet to keep track of the menstrual periods of women who visited Planned Parenthood, prompting a legislator to call on the governor to investigate his actions.
The spreadsheet, prepared at the request of Dr. Williams by the Missouri Chief Inspector, helped identify patients who had undergone failed abortions in St. Louis.
The revelation came during a hearing from the Administrative Commission that will decide whether Planned Parenthood, the last abortion clinic in the state, can retain its license to perform the procedure.
