Silly Disclaimer By College Newspaper on Gender Identity – Read it to Believe it!

By on Friday, July 24, 2015

 The Daily Bruin — the student newspaper at the University of California, Los Angeles — ran a blog post Monday by Zoey Freedman titled, “Free tampons would slow flow of gender inequality,” which argues that the federal government should subsidize the cost of tampons and pads.
Slow your roll, girl.
According to TheBlaze, Whatever your perspective on that issue, it’s safe to say that the editor’s note that sits atop the post — which said, among other things, that “not all individuals who menstruate identify as women” — is attracting decidedly more attention:
“This blog post refers to individuals who menstruate as women because the author wanted to highlight gender inequality in health care,” the editor’s note reads.

“We acknowledge that not all individuals who menstruate identify as women and that not all individuals who identify as women menstruate, but feel this generalization is appropriate considering the gendered nature of most health care policies.”
The editor’s note drew the attention of one commenter, rightwingprofessor, who called it “silly” and said it made the paper a “national laughingstock.”
“Are there really men at UCLA who menstruate?” the commenter asked.
Personally, I think that people should be responsible for their own hygiene items. As a woman, I have been over spending on female products since puberty. C’est la vie. Humans are inclined to smell good; thus; we spend huge amounts of cash on soaps, colognes and hair products. Why is any of this for others to pay for, regardless of gender identification?
Yes, I would LOVE to meet the man that has a uterus. Please explain to me how that is even biologically possible, OK?

Is this really supposed to be representative of college level journalism? I mean, you do realize that people are laughing at more than just the journalism here, right? This comes down to basic intellect
The government owes us NOTHING. You are entitled to NOTHING.
Work for the things you want. Educate yourself, though I wouldn’t go to UCLA for that education if I were you.
Afford the life you want. Buy the things you need. Expect nothing but what you provide for your existence.
