The equal rights for men organization M.E.N. (More Equality Now) are protesting that more women than men in society use tampons or sanitary towels and are launching a campaign to encourage more male users. They are petitioning manufacturers to make their products more attractive to men.
A spokesperson for M.E.N., Ms Monthly, had this to say.
"In all areas of modern life there are laws in place to ensure equality of the sexes but it seems that the use of tampons and sanitary towels is totally unequal. We need to get tampons inserted into the political agenda.
"There are about twenty million women in the country who have access to tampons and use them regularly, on average at least once a month and sometimes twice a month. Compare that with male usage of about twelve, albeit with a daily use and the disparity becomes obvious. In order for tampons to be more attractive to men we are asking manufacturers to make tampons in Super Duper Super size and modify designs to sanitary towels so men will feel happier about using them.
"Down the pub we want to hear men saying things like 'Fuck me mate, I put a new tampon up the other day. Expanded to the size of a rugby ball it did.' and 'I had twelve pints last night, good job I was wearing my Man.Utd. sanitary towel'"
Women groups have responded by insisting that if men want equal tampon rights then women should have equal condom rights.
