• Beto and Other Dems Celebrate ‘National Period Day’ — Free Stuff Promised!

    Surge Summary: It’s official, Democratic presidential candidates Beto O’Rourke, Corey Booker and Julian Castro are on board with #NationalPeriodDay — and want the government to do more to get “menstrual products” to women … including, perhaps, the transgender variety?

    This could shatter the day for a few folks: Are you aware you missed “National Period Day” this weekend?

    No, the following column is not a spoof …

    PJMedia’s Matt Margolis fills us in …

    Not to be outdone by Cory Booker’s “women are people” moment in the last debate, Beto O’Rourke decided to virtue signal his pro-woman accolades on Saturday by tweeting that “women across America don’t have access to the period products they need,” and since it is #NationalPeriodDay [October 19] (who knew that was a thing?), that “men need to join women in demanding real change.” Beto wants “real change” and identifies as a man for the moment (at least until he needs a Hail Mary for his campaign) and he’s announced his support for the Menstrual Equity Act.

    Not a typo, you’re not imagining things, not a satire:  Apparently there actually is a “National Period Day” and the Menstrual Equity Act is a real thing. The latter is officially H.R. 1882, otherwise poetically known as the Menstrual Equity for All Act of 2019. Apparently Beto thinks women aren’t capable of taking care of this most basic need, unable to negotiate the challenges of the local pharmacy.

    But hold on! This pandering gibberish isn’t just for biological women! GovTrack, informs this legislation will “increase the availability and affordability of menstrual hygiene products for individuals with limited access, and for other purposes.”

    Note: “individuals”. Because men have periods too, don’t you know! It doesn’t seem like Beto made this concession, but, fear not!, fellow Democratic presidential wannabes Cory Booker and Julián Castro did.

    They also tweeted about National Period Day, but didn’t single out women as being the only sex that actually needs menstrual products:

    Men pretending to be ladies, unable to “access basic health needs like menstrual products”? What’s someone facing the monthly make-believe visit from “Aunt Flo” to do?  Why, it’s a global scandal!

    “Tax-Free tampons for all!” Now there’s a riveting campaign motto.

    None of the three frontrunners (Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, or Bernie Sanders) have tweeted any acknowledgment of #NationalPeriodDay or the Menstrual Equity Act as of this writing.

    But give them time …
