California taxpayers could soon be providing menstrual products for men on public university campuses across the state.
Assemblymember Cristina Garcia introduced legislation that would provide free menstrual products to biological women as well as gals who think they are men.
“California recognizes that access to menstrual products is a basic human right and is vital for ensuring the health, dignity, and full participation of all Californians in public life,” the text of AB-367 states.
“California has an interest in promoting gender equity, not only for women and girls, but also for transgender men, nonbinary, and gender-nonconforming people who may also menstruate and experience inequities resulting from lack of access to menstrual products,” the bill reads.
Garcia projects the cost to the California State University System would be between $750,000 to $800,000, Campus Reform reported.
“It’s really a question about gender equity and basic human dignity,” Jason Chen, a freshman at Stanford University, told CalMatters.org.
Chen is chair of Empowerment Collective, a California student group lobbying around policies that affect young people.
“As a non-menstruating individual, I don’t have to worry about where my toilet paper is going to be or if I’m going to have access to toilet paper when I’m in the bathroom,” he said.
That’s right folks. He really said that.
The Cal State Student Association voiced their support for the legislation noting it “is in the best interest of CSU students. All students, regardless of sex and gender, should have the ability to attend classes and not worry about accessing menstrual products.”
If you are a man and you have to use menstrual products, you might want to consider scheduling an appointment with a psychologist.
