“Of course. Toilet paper is readily available. Why shouldn’t tampons be? If women had more power in society, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. If men menstruated, tampons would have been in restrooms 50 years ago. True, they’ll be an added expense for a business owner. But everything costs money.”

"Yes, why not? Obviously I don’t use them. But it’s a necessity for women and should be provided. As a precaution, women should still carry them. But they should also be available in restrooms if you run out."

“Yes. It should be mandated by law. As a trans man, I’d also like to see them in men’s rooms and single-user restrooms. They’re expensive products, not always accessible, and used for a bodily function that you can’t avoid. And they help create a sanitary environment.”
