Sticking it to wymens.
“equal protection of the laws” clearly applies to the states, not the federal government.
Anything that seems important should be freely given by someone who has it to someone who wants it. The world would work perfectly that way. I think. Let me write up the flow chart.
I’ve always wondered, do virgins use Tampons, wouldn’t the hymen prevent their use?
FR is great for daily learning! Thanks for that tidbit.
Why stop there ... nearly every product in an adult shop is gender specific.
So no taxes on anything unless it can be used by the privates of both genders?
A real life insanity infected society
Tampons were patented in 1933.
Insane sure. But why not just exempt the tax? They exempt tons of products from sales tax. I think complaining is more effective perhaps?
Needs to be repeated -
What about the tax on white people who use tanning beds?
Seems the Kenyans tanning bed tax was ok...

Are men paying sales taxes on shaving supplies & jock straps?
The minutia that the snowflakes can whine about is amazing. And NOT in a good way........
Taxing anything the left is affected by is apparently unfair and unconstitutional...
