Scotland makes period products available for free; MGTOWs respond with their customary good sense

The Scottish Parliament just voted (unanimously) to make tampons and other period products available for free to those too broke to pay for them. It’s a big victory for the campaign against “period poverty.” Now no one in Scotland will have to miss school or work because they can’t afford sanitary products.

Naturally, the fellows in the Men Going Their Own Way subreddit have reacted to the news with their customary good sense.

“Sanitary products” are free, EXCEPT THEY’RE PAID FOR WITH MEN’S TAX DOLLARS, blared one headline in the subreddit. And the assembled MEN waxed furious about this terrible new financial burden. (The cost of the program is estimated to be roughly £8.7 million a year, or less than £2 for every inhabitant of Scotland.)

“Every time I see the word free I know it means some man or group of men are paying for it,” complained one commenter.

“Guys in Scotland, including bachelors, asexuals and homosexuals, are going to be paying for vaginas that they dont care about, regardless of their financial status,” charged another.

“The only thing free for men, is dying,” still another commenter moaned.

Several MGTOW Redditors fantasized about ways to sabotage the program. Wrote not_a_beleiber:

If I was Scottish, I’d buy a woman’s pant suit, put it on, then demand free hygine products. Increase the cost, the commentary, and hence the regulation on this.

“No need,” replied Miserable-Lemon.

If I was scottish I’d immediately open a drug store that only offers feminine products. You hand them out like candy, charge like 50$ a pop to the government and buy as much stock as you can store it. You’ll make a hundred times your investment on a monthly basis

(In fact, the products aren’t going to be available at stores bur rather distributed by schools and other public facilities.)

The-Rover-666 demonstrated his keen grasp of period products and their use, writing “[s]o their whymin are that smelly they had to give them free…”

Replied Legs2Big:

They’ve always spent so much of their time hiding their true appearance from a young age, they act like their lives depends on it.

What that has to do with sanitary products is anyone’s guess.

Non-w0ke offered this perplexing political program:

Because single moms are pure toxic cancer for children it makes sense to let those independent to go their own way and provide free stuff only to those who are willing to care for children. It includes a stress free home, food, housing, full family and adequate attention.

Cant provide for a kid? Fuck off, buy your own tampons.

What any of this has to do with sanitary products is also anyone’s guess.

Do you think he knows the difference between the urethral sphincter and the cervix? Not just the different locations, but the difference in function and voluntary control?

@Victorious Parasol

Absolutely not!

@Everybody

Here’s a fun fact for you men and/or folks who haven’t menstruated: there’s a massive difference in quality between expensive products and cheap ones. The cheap pads are thick and uncomfortable, and can show underneath your clothes (which is strictly against social rules). The shape on cheap pads might not be right for your body. They also don’t stick well, so you’re going to be getting more staining and more stress over whether you’re bleeding through. Cheap tampons can be harder to use and less comfortable too, especially for inexperienced people.

Because it’s the government, the government-paid option will probably be cheaper and an inferior product, and therefore, self-limiting, because nearly everyone who CAN buy their own absolutely will buy their own. Only those who can’t afford that will go with the government option.

I’m amused that the Depletionist thinks he can describe menstruation in ways that will gross us out. Anybody who’s ever menstruated can be a LOT more inventive and precise in describing just how bad a period can get and why it’s an unprivileged experience.

I looked up what depletionism is. It appears that it refers to two different ideas, both the idea that we’re running out of oil imminently or that the Earth’s population should be reduced. So he’s probably some sort of ecofascist or maybe some really weird strain of anarchist (anprim?).

As for the guy himself, I’m mostly finding his lack of biology knowledge, even when corrected, to be both entertaining and annoying at the same time.

Women are, in fact, disgusting; if it weren’t for the fact that they smear animal corpse paint on their dishonest mugs, and if they didn’t take time to wax and remove their coarse hairs from their otherwise Curious George-looking asses, everybody would know this. The fact that they pour out buckets of crimson fluids from their cock-crazy crotch cavities only compounds the level of revulsion that a ordinary man should feel when looking at them. If women went basic, no frills, men would probably turn gay and/or embrace the MGTOW lifestyle everywhere. Even incels would stop placing your pussies on pedestals if you did that. Nobody wants to look at your hideous, lying-ass clocks without makeup.

Wow. Even on the internet, most dudes don’t just come out and admit they hate women like this. Most hateful types don’t say the quiet part out loud.

I’m impressed!

Less impressed at how he has absolutely no clue what he’s talking about, but.

  1. Most people know a lot of women wear makeup.
  2. Most people know some women don’t.
  3. Most people know most women must spend time removing hair in order to be socially acceptable.

It’s great how he complains about women both wearing makeup and not wearing makeup in the same post, too. It makes it clear that the problem isn’t what we do, it’s what’s in his head.

As mentioned in another thread somewhere on here, a not insubstantial number of my female coworkers over the years did not and don’t wear makeup. Oddly enough, I did not turn gay or become a MGTOW after being exposed to their unsightly “clocks”…

Thank you, you just proved my point.

I don’t know how to gently break this to you without causing alarm, but you too are filled with blood, urine, phlegm, gas, and stool (note we’re using the adult terms here), as well as trillions of continually dying, bursting, shedding cells. You too deceptively wear clothing that changes your shape, and arrange your hair in unnatural ways, and cover up less than ideal breath with toothpaste and gum and mouthwash. We’re all animals. That’s a trivial observation.

If women truly were as repulsive as you describe, the human race would have died out millennia ago. And yet mating continues, enthusiastically, whether you approve of it or not. The answer to that puzzle is not “billions of men are gullible fools and I am not”, it’s “billions of men are able to deal with bodily functions and I am not”.

I don’t know what the root cause of your aversion is. That’s not for me to speculate. What I do know is that you’ve made corporeal existence a moral failing, one that’s somehow unique only to women. As though men waft nothing but the most delicate angel-spun creme brulee from their bodies.

If you’re only focusing on women having yucky bits and doing gross things, then you’re a misogynist groping for a biological justification.

@ .45

I can think of several reasons for why that might be the case:

  1. You were not attracted to those women at all, but you were still attracted to the women that DO wear makeup. If it were the case that ALL women ceased taking care of themselves, you might not be saying this.
  2. You have an unusual fetish or paraphilia, and can only experience attraction under very specific circumstances to begin with.
  3. You consume pornography.
  4. You are so blinded by this blue-pill-choked Coomer-built society that you actually want to go your own way, but you are afraid of being mocked or ostracized.
  5. You are a woman.

There was a point in my life a couple of years ago where I had basically two periods. The first one came out brown and stringy, like barbecue, for a couple of days. Then it would suddenly switch to copious quantities of much thinner, much more slippery red blood. Neither manifestation had any kind of weird smell to it, so I wasn’t concerned for my health, but I was often very concerned about blood escaping my pad and slithering down my leg. I don’t wear tampons or a cup for physiological reasons, so pads are my only option, and I swear to God that second flow of blood was like a faucet full of cherry soda syrup.

I hope you get a nice visceral from this, Depletionist.

Sometimes you sneeze on your period, and pass a clot that feels like giving birth to a jellyfish. That is the BEST.

Now let’s think about how many women are doing that, day in and day out, all around Depletionist. Hundreds of them. Thousands.

My Life as a Woman
When I was perimenopausal, I had a period that went on for one week, two weeks, three weeks, a month. After two weeks it turned brown. After a month, my health care practitioner said, “Let me see.” Well, okay. She took a look at my pad and said that the brown stuff was a vaginal discharge. Phew!

I’m nerd sniped now, so let’s do some rough math. About half the world has a uterus, so that’s 3.9 billion uteruses. If we assume most uterus havers menstruate from the age of 13 to 51 (average ages of menarche and menopause in the US), about 50% of the world is in that age range. So that’s 1.95 billion people who have uteruses and experience menstruation. If a period lasts 7 days on average and happens about once a month, and we assume that there is no synchronization, then about 1/4 of those people are menstruating at any given time. So that’s 487,500,000 people menstruating at any given time (very rough estimate, ignoring lots of things). And, Mr. Depletionist, they’re all around you. It’s inescapable.

[Y]ou go and engage in all sorts of unholy caterwauling about your ultraviolet hag syrup. NORMAL people find what you’re doing to be excruciating. It’s not a sign of oppression that people find you in bad taste [blah, blah, blah]

But before that, there was this:

It’s about the way which society treats you all like royalty, simply for possessing a (frankly disgusting) biological tendency to urinate blood every “time of the month.” Personally, I would never want to soil my linens with such putrid bodily fluids [blah, blah, blah]



  1. So who started this discussion of the details of menstruation? And who made menstruation sound like a horror movie? (Hint: See above.)
  2. What is your demand — that women stop menstruating?
  3. Oh wait, I see now that your demand is that women stop being treated like royalty simply for menstruating. But free menstrual products do not a princess make. What they make is a girl or woman who is at liberty to leave the house every day of the month. I can see how this would offend a fascist and drive him onto a feminist blog to screech about a perfectly natural and normal biological function.

I really want you to visualize that super awesome sensation of being on one’s period. Just kind of imagine slime in the dent between your balls and your taint, slime that squishes around everywhere and comes from a never-depleted source up inside your body, slime that is blood-colored and stains every article of clothing it touches and, for extra delight, is sometimes softly lumpy. I’m not even touching on the accompanying discomfort/pain and bodily changes, just the physical sensation of leaking slippery uterine lining. If you can’t imagine it, you lack creativity and are hardly demonstrating your superiority, and if you choose not to, likewise because you’re simply a coward.

You are simultaneously one o the most annoying as well as one of the most disgusting women I’ve ever had the displeasure to come across. I don’t give a shit if you “could handle” leaking that hell sauce out of your whatever when you were in middle school; babies are much younger, and they see no problem whatsoever in shitting themselves and spewing out greasy green slime from their wailing mouths. As they grow older and more civilized, they naturally view that stuff as inappropriate. As I have been properly acculturated, I have naturally come to view all this nauseating bleating you’re doing about your unseemly machinations to be reason to stay the fuck away from you.

FACT: No man willingly wants to spend time surrounded by greasy, blood-leaking stooges with what looks to be coffee grinds and spoiled hash in their undergarments. In order to get men to stay around them, the stooges invented feminism, a communistic doctrine that has cowed many gullible men into submission, and has convinced them that seeking their own best interests is, in fact, misogyny. Through the use of elaborate ruses, deodorizing agents, and ideological viruses, women have succeeded in enslaving men, practically leashing them by the dong while dragging them to stores to make them buy pretty dresses and shiny things for them,.
