I honestly can’t believe this right now. I was complaining to my bf about some Kotex tampons I had used, going on a bit of a rant about how bad they were, and on a whim I decided to go to the website and leave a review so other people who might get them would know better.
I’ve never written a tampon review in my life (it’s not something I ever anticipated doing) so I had a little fun getting very passionate about my thoughts, and then went to submit…. Only to receive the words: ‘Your review text contains inappropriate language.’ I was confused at first, I mean I was pretty emphatic, but I didn’t cuss at all… and then I realized: I had typed the word ‘vagina.’
You can’t type the word ‘vagina’ on a TAMPON review because it’s considered inappropriate.
KOTEX, a company that makes OVER A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR primarily selling products to people with vaginas, thinks that someone typing the word “VAGINA” in a review of a product that goes IN THEIR VAGINA is being inappropriate and needs to be censored.
I retyped “v*gina” with an asterisk like it was a swear word, submitted and it went to preview mode with no problem. But I’m still kind of in shock… Honestly, what is wrong with Kotex that they think they need to protect tampon users from the word ‘vagina’?
If you didn’t think our society’s fear of the vagina was absurd, here you go. It’s cartoonish.
i just tried it and it’s true????????? WHY. WHAT IN THE EVER LIVING HELL

Women’s Halloween costumes make me mad.

For example, you can:
- be in a shampoo commercial
- start a boy band:
- spot some choice booty:
- break into song:
- see some people in frankly offensive outfits:
- attend a metal show:
- listen to some sick jams:
- discover zombieism:
- sample some tasty snacks:
- watch someone get burned bad:
- find something you really like:
- find something you really, really like:
- find something you REALLY REALLY LIKE:
- and wonder if you left the stove on:
im setting myself on fire goodbye
I made you a sandwich put it in your mouth
TELL THAT TO MOTHERFUCKING QUEEN VICTORIA AND HER HUGE ASS EMPIRE BITCH
I couldn’t hear you.
Over all the voices of amazing women.
Who could have
Reblogging this for the gender studies we’re doing in my history course.
No important discoveries of course because discovering what the sun is made of isn’t important at all OH NO.
Whaaat a douchetit fucknugget. I’d love to practice my crotch kicking skills on this dude.
my favorite part is at the end. obviously your completely truthful when you say “i am not sexist, anti-feminine, or whetever but this is brilliant”
just somethings that women invented:
- life rafts
- fire escape
- car heaters
- medical syringes
- windshield wipers
- water heater
- chocolate chip cookies
- disposable cell phones
- Bulletproof vests
We wouldn’t know what we do about radiation without Marie Curie. Oh and what about Roseline Franklin, who figured out what DNA looked like?
And guess who took on the empty jobs when all the men were in the army in WW2?
Arg, posts like this.
Also Re: “never forced to die in a war”, Libya, Benin, Chad, Malaysia, Tunisia, Cuba, Eritrea, Taiwan, and Israel’s mandatory military services would like to have a word with you.
I’m going to go point by point here:
Joan of Arc led an army 600 YEARS AGO what do you mean women have never fought in wars? COUNTLESS women have been killed in battle. HOW DARE YOU disregard their courage and their sacrifice. And let’s not forget all the women who contributed to war efforts before they were allowed to fight by working in factories, nursing, spying, and making sure the industries back home didn’t die completely.
“Women have never lead a nation”? Yeah, everyone from Margaret Thatcher to Ruth Dreifuss would like to have a word with you about that. The Chancellor of Germany (generally considered one of the most powerful people in Europe and in the world) is a woman. The Presidents of Liberia, Argentina, Lithuania, Costa Rica, Brazil, Kosovo, Malawi, and South Korea are women, as are the Prime Ministers of Bangladesh, Iceland, Trinidad and Tobago, Australia, Slovakia, Thailand, Denmark, and Jamaica. The US Secretary of State, the President of the Indian National Congress Party, the General Secretary of the Burmese National League for Democracy, and the monarchs of England and Jordan are women.
Facebook’s COO, the CEOs of Pepsi, Kraft, Xerox, IBM, Yahoo, WellPoint, Avon, the President of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, and the co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment are women, just to name a few. There are now a million more female college graduates in America than there are male college grads. So no, I would not say that women are incapable of succeeding at their jobs. I think we can all agree that idiots like you are the reason women get paid less than their male counterparts.
RE the voting thing and the thing about women not being able to make difficult decisions: The ghosts of Susan B. Anthony, Amelia Bloomer, Emily Davison, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Mary Richardson, Emmeline Pankhurst, Frances Ellen Watkins, Maria W. Stewart, Christabel Pankhurst, Lucy Stone, and all the other suffragettes and abolitionists who fought for their rights despite how radical and dangerous it was are coming to haunt you.
The things about wimpy support groups and physical beauty make so little sense that I don’t even know what to say in response
A further list of things invented by women:
Toilet paper holder
Submarine lamp and telescope
Home solar heating system
Gas heating furnace
Cobol (first computer language)
Electric hot water heater
You conveniently forgot to mention literature, but let me just remind everyone that the 5th, 6th, 12th, 14th, 16th, 17th, 18th, and 21st best-selling books of all time were written by women. The 1st, 2nd and 6th best-selling authors of 2012 are women, while the 3rd best-selling book of 2011 was written by a woman…do I really need to continue?
Women have not contributed to science or mathematics or the building blocks of modern society? Tell that to the 43 female Nobel Prize winners. Tell that to Emilie du Chatelet, Caroline Herschel, Mary Anning, Mary Somerville, Maria Mitchell, Lise Meitner, Irène Curie-Joliot, Barbara McClintock, Dorothy Hodgkin, Marie Curie, Rosalind Franklin, any of the people mentioned in the previous comments, or any of the other women who made significant scientific or mathematical advances despite being oppressed by people like you. Oh, and RE the philosophy, here’s a list of people who prove you wrong: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_female_philosophers.
And women did all that in a society ruled by thinking like yours. While bearing your children and wearing corsets.
I never claimed we were superior, but don’t you dare tell me we are not EQUAL.
