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

There is a tax on condoms, a tax on birth control pills, everything pretty much has a tax on it. So the solution is simple, do away with sales taxes and we all will be happy.

What about the tax on toilet paper? Oh the humanity!

Women purchase condoms. I did. Granted, they go on the man, but have a purpose to both sexes. Tampons do not. They are woman-specific, and already expensive.

After my hysterectomy, I donated all of my sanitary items to an organization in the UK. Over there, school nurses, clinics, and hospitals do not provide them in machines, and hospitals charge a ridiculous amount for them. They’re subject to a 12% tax due to being a “luxury item”. They were necessary for me. I was having transfusions on a regular basis, which are awful for transplant recipients.

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?
