No, but it sure reads like one:

By all means, let’s hear more! HuffPo executive business editor Emily Peck writes:

“Tampons and pads should be treated just like toilet paper. They serve the same purpose — items to tend to our every day, normal bodily functions,” Nancy Kramer told The Huffington Post by email on Tuesday. Kramer is the woman behind “Free the Tampons,” a campaign she started up in Ohio to put free tampons and pads in all restrooms outside the home.

“If men got their periods, we would not be having the conversation,” she said. According to Kramer’s research, it costs about $4.67 per female student or employee to provide free sanitary products annually. “In other words, for less than a fancy cup of coffee, you can supply a woman with supplies for a year,” she said.

Eighty-six percent of the nearly 800 people who took my extremely unscientific Twitter poll agree that tampons should be free.

Well, who can argue with that? Free tampons for everyone!


But seriously, though. This is asinine.
