Feministing fave Margaret Cho has some (Tampax) pearls of wisdom to share:
Let she who is without menstrual stains throw the first tampon.
Amen, sister. Who among us hasn’t flipped a mattress at least once? Who hasn’t had a month where they’ve gone through, like, two boxes of super-absorbencies? Who doesn’t have a few pairs of stained cotton underwear that only comes out of the drawer once a month? (You know — the C team. As in, you’ve got your A-team underwear — the cute stuff that fits really well and that you feel great in; and B-team underwear — ill-fitting, or slightly old, or not that cute; and finally your C-team, which is basically your period panties.) Anyway. Thanks, Margaret. We love you.
