GROSS: Students At University Hold “Bleed-In” Protesting For Free Menstrual Products

Published

(Via Campus Reform)

University of Florida students walked around campus Tuesday with fake menstrual blood on their pants to protest the lack of free feminine hygiene products on campus.

On January 15, a student government committee rejected a proposal to provide free menstrual products to female students through the mandatory Activity and Service Fee, expressing concerns about applying mandatory fees paid by all students towards “funding that would only benefit the female half of the UF student body.”

A student group called “Gatters Matter, Period.,” which began circulating a petition in support of the proposal last fall, responded by organizing a “bleed-in” protest during which roughly two-dozen students stained the back of their pants red, according to The Alligator.

“This is a part of reproductive justice,” Shannon Matthew, who was among the first students to join the protest, told the Alligator. “I’m not ashamed of my period, and I don’t think anyone should be.”

A Facebook event page for the “Are You Seeing Red?” demonstration explains that participants wore “washable dye on our bums, as if we didn’t have a pad and the blood bled through.”

The organizers provided “supplies” for those in need of them, but encouraged students to “bleed-in how ever [sic] you want as well.”

OCD: Conservatives Suffer From Ocasio-Cortez Disorder

Published

on

What was the #1 mistake the media made in the 2016 election?

In the past, the mainstream media ignored anti-establishment candidates it disliked.  Slowly, but surely, their poll numbers would fall.  Yet they couldn’t help themselves when Donald Trump came on the scene in 2015… and they covered him all the way to victory.

Now, Conservatives begin to make the same mistake:  memeing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez like the world is going to end in 12 years.  It would be fine if AOC memes weren’t so juvenile, shit-tier, & flat out not funny.

They fall into a category called “Boomer memes.” It’s a term that pokes fun at the “2nd Greatest Generation” for not being particularly tech savvy, but it’s used here to describe low quality content:  Think fuzzy/irrelevant pictures, generic fonts, usually too much text, and toilet humor.  They might as well call her a “poo-poo” head, because they aren’t changing minds.

Note: The “Boomer” meme

You cannot scroll down your Facebook timeline without seeing her face on one of these perversions posing as “memes.”

Like an ex-girlfriend, she wants your attention.  She wants you to call her back.  She wants you to hate on her.  It fuels her.  You’re essentially working public relations for the DSA Party when you continue to post about her.

“I need you to hate/So I can use you for your energy”

You may think you’re doing some kind of public service calling out her stupidity.  In reality, you’re pushing the disenfranchised right into her arms.   Like an ex-girlfirend, the best thing you can do is be indifferent to her existence.  The opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s indifference… and drives women crazy.    Hanging on her every word and blunder is what the media did to Trump, and it skyrocketed his campaign at every turn.  Think “Grab her by the p*ssy.”

Stop memeing Cortez unless you’re going to do it intelligently.

And if you think she can’t be president, you weren’t paying attention during 2016.

P.S.  Notice I didn’t use her image once.  I did this even though I knew posting it would have given me 100s, if not 1000s of likes.  Don’t be a slave to AOC.  She IS your boss if you meme her.  You don’t work for her.  And neither do we.
