Taxing tampons isnít just unfair, itís unconstitutional

If the government were to require that only men or only women had to pay a tax of several hundred dollars a year solely because of their sex, that would be an unconstitutional denial of equal protection under the 14th Amendment. Yet that is exactly the effect of the so-called tampon tax.

Gender’s just an abstract concept. If you don’t like the tax, change your gender.

But some colleges are putting tampons in the men’s room, saying that men menstruate as well.

Someone got their wires crossed on this one.

If there’s an unconstitutional tampon tax, is there also an unconstitutional condom tax?

Just the TAXES on her tampons is several hundred dollars a year? How many boxes of tampons is she buying?

She needs to scheduled an appointment with a genealogist immediately because this isn't normal.

“that would be an unconstitutional denial of equal protection”
Of course. It’s right there in the Tampon Clause.

Using that logic, taxing bras would be unconstitutional.
