A friend of mine was banned from Facebook after she posted this picture. A man she knew reported it as offensive, and Facebook decided that it was offensive.
I want to note that there is no blood. It is an unused tampon. It is a necessary product for a women, just like a Q-tip or a roll of toilet paper. There is nothing at all disgusting about it.
So why is it offensive?
I don’t know.
Facebook did not give a reason when they suspended her account.
But when she told me about it, I knew I had to re-post it and blog about it, because if anyone thinks an unused tampon is more than they can handle, they are pathetic.
And while I am on the subject of the photo, rape is way more offensive than periods.
