The fact a lot of women want the government to suply them menstrual products is weird to me. Anonymous 111716

The fact a lot of women want the government to suply them menstrual products is weird to me. If you look at most products made by the government you'll see they're cheap garbage that doesn't even meet the limits.

Also when the government produces the menstrual products there will be less brands and the quality will hit the ground.

A girl postet or retarddit a picture of the tampons that were given for free at her school and they looked like they'll give you TSS if you wear them for more that 10 minutes.

Still for women who can't affort menstrual products I think there mshould be canpaigns to help them out and give them the needed stuff, nobody deserves to suffer like this, but the fact that women with way enough money to buy their needed menstrual products and women with high paying jobs saying the government should produce those things is trully disgusting me.

I will never trust the government. Not even one drop. Products made from private conpanies are the best, most high quality products.

I make my own pads by folding paper towels and taping them to my underwear.

You should never trust the government, but you definitely can't trust private either. Procter & Gamble’s Always pads were found to have several cancer causing agents in them by several outside labs. And they're a multi billion dollar company.

Actually, yeah. But I'm not going to get into it because I would get banned again.

The government is supposed to supply bare minimum shitty things so that the bottom rung of society is still functioning. You can go ahead and pay more for better tampons, but do you really want hobo women freebleeding on the street? Nobody benefits from that.

If youre American most homeless shelters will give you pads and tampons for free. That being said if you're on food stamps or WIC as well as in low income housing buying tampons/pads should be quite easy? It's the equivalent of toilet paper, food, medicines, etc but I don't understand women who act like tampons or pads takes a big toll on your income, it's under $10 for even bougie brands most of the time and it only lasts a week. And if you can't find it in your budget to be able to spend $10 once a month then you have bigger budgeting issues or need to look into programs that help low income people

I mean the government doesn't give out free toilet paper or soap, so why tampons?

Anonymous 111958

In both places where I've lived, there are health clinics that will give out free tampons/pads/condoms and sell other contraceptives at a reduced price, which is sometimes free if you're seriously poor. The government supports and advertises them.

That's because a company's ultimate goal is just to make profits, not actually help people or give them the best quality. Corporations and the government often work together so the former have a lot of power, since they got the money. The "higher quality" offered by private companies is just a side-effect of them wanting to attract the most customers, and "less brands" doesn't need to mean "lower quality" (why the fuck do you need to "choose" between 50 different brands of the same kind of tampon or pad anyway?).

the government doesn't produce anything

they write a list of criteria and companies bid to be the vendor that can provide a product that satisfies said criteria at the lowest cost. blame the companies or ask for better criteria

Oh my sweet summer child. If only you knew how bad government production contracts work on the regular. The standard process is, the government writes up a contract for what it wants and how many, then it goes into bidding, whoever will do it for the cheapest gets the contract. No other questions asked. However, in order to be that cheap, what happens most of the time is the product that is made only meets the bar-minimum standard as defined in the contract, which is usually dogshit in quality because it has to be mass distributed.
>j-just put in a stipulation that the produced good has to be high quality
I'm too tired to unfurl the horrifying revelation which is government budgetting distribution, let me just say that even if you were to specifically require a high-quality standard at one point, it would be immediately the first thing on the chopping block next funding reduction, which inevitably happens, fucking always.

i kind of get it because i use a gov subsidized phone that's constantly screwed with adware embedded to the hardware.
seems like a generalized problem, i don't see how we couldn't find a way to make it work well though

Ideally, yes there would be no problem. In practice, a complete hell. You'd have to have an incredibly booming economy for this to work well, so that budget constraints aren't tight, or an incredibly fierce sentiment towards what standard is usable by the populace. However, in those cases, all it takes is for, again, budget concerns to crop up, and these programs will, always, inevitably, be the first programs. There is no lasting solution on the government side because the government has no incentive to provide anything but the bare minimum that satiates the populace enough to prevent outright rebellion. There is no incentive for the government to mass distribute high quality goods for free as far as what they actually gain out of it, only bare minimum standards to be met.

>i WaNt FrEe MeNsTrUaL pRoDuCtS !!!

here's your main quest: how about you buy 1 menstrual cup every 5-10 years and/or buy some reusable cloth pads that last you till you're out of eggs? pretty cheap, right

>BuT tHeY aRe UnCoMfOrTaBlE !!!

the planet turnt to shit thanks to people who put their comfort above mother nature, also, you'll get used to them, you whiny bish

side quest: use the money you saved on menstrual products to invest in organisations who buy (throw away) menstrual products for the homeless and the poor

imo, only the homeless and the poor (and disabled people) have the right to use throw away products because they don't have to means or ability to clean and sanitize them properly

I fully agree with you, OP.

It does not work like that. They will buy the cheapest option for overcharged prices, and then you get the market flooded with pure shit.

>>111733
Because the most scary thing one can hear is "I am from the government and i am here to help". It is a 300% certainty that you are going to get buttraped by someone claiming they are helping you.

You can also get birth control for really cheap and skip periods if you really need to save. If you live near a Walmart equate has tampons under 5 dollars as well. I get tampons and stuff are a burden to buy but I never understood the idea that they're super expensive and really put a dent in the budget? Even when I surviving exclusively off of minimum wage buying pads or tampons was never an issue

I use Bella. They have non-scented pads, pads of all sizes for night and day and they use pure cottom. I've never had an problem with them and they're one of the cheapest brands at the store.
You can try also ConfyLady or Flirt, but I also recommend using the ones made from your country to support the smaller brands or make or buy ones that can be used more than once to safe money. Good luck, and Merry Christmas.
