Minneapolis is on fire, but let’s take a quick trip north of the border to see what’s going on in Toronto: Why, it’s officially Menstrual Hygiene Day by proclamation of Mayor John Tory:
Today I proclaimed #MenstrualHygieneDay in the @CityofToronto in an effort to help break the silence around menstruation. Proud to support @ThePeriodPurse and their continued work to end the stigma surrounding periods. #MHDay2020 pic.twitter.com/Ae9HsTNuTS

We haven’t seen anything so stunning and brave since presidential candidate Julián Castro on #NationalPeriodDay remembered those who have to choose between work and tampons, although legislation is moving New York closer to achieving tampon justice.
Thank you for being so brave and helping solve a problem that no one was having or was concerned about. https://t.co/hY8m0D14xv

You need psychiatric help.

You really think that this was a necessary thing to do?

And the entire city of Toronto declared it #OurMayorIsAVirtueSignalingDoucheCanoe day!

No one cares.

Am I the only one feeling like we live in a cartoon world now? Where everything needs a day, a movement, a hashtag or a weird name like 'Menstrual Hygiene Day'? Its bizarre and so unnecessary.

Is this real.

As a woman I will proclaim periods are not stigmatized and our Canadian government is insane

WTF is this?

The jujitsu contortionist-level of skill to write this and not use the word "woman" is awe-inspiring. I was amazed at the level of political correctness and fear.

Seriously? Menstruators? Please add this selection to all government forms so WOMEN can properly identify as Menstruators or maybe there should be a Non-Menstruators category too. Unreal!

I all know is that if called my wife and her friends 'menstruators' I would be descended upon with sharp implements and my body parts would never be found.

Try walking into a room full of women and say "Good morning menstruators" and see how that works out for you.

Finally! Break the stigma!

The Mayor of Toronto, in the middle of a major pandemic, in the middle of a major economic collapse that he has created, has taken upon himself to focus on the things that are important
Our political system is so horribly broken

My husband says he would like there to be a #BadHairDay to end the stigma around bad hair, especially in these trying times.

Toronto’s and London’s mayors should have a competition to see who’s more woke.
