Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Misogyny; ciscentrism.]

"[Y]ou as a woman should have come up with a better solution than diapers and plugs, but you didn't. Reason being women are focused on and distracted by your period 25% of the time, making them far less productive than they could be. Women tend to be far more creative than men, but their periods that [sic] stifle them and play with their heads."—Kansas chiropractor Daniel Dopps, getting a wee bit defensive when women didn't greet with overwhelming gratitude his "Mensez feminine lipstick," which is labial adhesive he proposes is a superior menstruation solution to tampons, pads, and cups.

The product itself sounds like complete rubbish, but Dopps' description of what periods do to women's (and others who have periods) brains is obviously the work of a true genius.
