you know what’s bullshit?

Taxes on feminine hygiene products.

Was listening to CBC radio (as usual) and they mentioned that an item being taxed implies that it is a luxury item.

so to the middle aged white men who run this country – eff you.

As Steven Tyler once said:

“If men bled, tampons would be free.”

(yes, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith said that. awesome)

This is a feminist issue my friends and complete and utter bullshit!

rant over.

    Ya, quite a few countries/tax systems do this. We get the GST portion applied here @ 5% rather than the full 13% (8% PST portion) for most taxable goods… however, why they even tax necessities like that is beyond me… particularly because so many retailers tax feminine hygiene products incorrectly that I actually had to blog about it – shame, lol!

    You know what? I think if all the women just decided to boycott feminine hygeine products men would think it was a pretty good idea not to tax it too. Anyone with me?!
