    Male Startup Blasted on Social Media for Creating a Period Glove

    Male Startup Blasted on Social Media for Creating a Period Glove

    As they should be.

    Two German men decided to create a pink disposable period glove so people don't get menstrual blood on their hands when removing tampons and other period products.

    Pinky Gloves was originally designed so period products could be disposed of properly and more discreetly.

    The founders said after they moved into a "women's flat" they noticed there was "no good solution when it came to the disposal of tampons."
    Poor babies! They deserve every bit of backlash they've received.

    To their credit, they did apologize and promise to do better moving forward, and refrained from defensive mansplaining.

    In summary, don't period shame women and don't make up fake problems for women for you to "solve" without first consulting women and examining your assumptions.

    Donald Trump was the fat line of coke conservatives snorted, thinking it would boost their energy and weight loss. Now they're waking up in a cheap motel room, picking at their scabs and denying that they have a problem.

    Progressives gone wild, the flip side of wacky conservatives.

    Sounds like a useful product, certainly as useful as battery orated vibrating dildos that have long been sold commercially.

    If men ar supposed to cater to female sensitivities, like keeping the toilet seat down, then sanitary products to handle disposal of female products is certainly not an issue.

    You are just trying to goad me. There's no way you are either as stupid or as misogynistic as all that.

    Also, you should read the article. Those guys got a clue eventually. Maybe you could learn from their example.

    I am a knuckle dragging, cave dwelling, baby boomer male and proud of it.

    You may not have the experience to understand this, women are just as bad as men. Just different sensibilities. Back in the 70s I was out for lunch with a woman friend. I jokingly asked if women write on the toilet walls like men do. She laughed and said much worse.

    Oh, I forgot...women are pure and should be elevated to a pedestal? You do know don't you, women actually like and want sex.? Contrary to the old nysogynyst view that women exist for male pleasure.

    "This is political correctness gone mad! Tampon gloves? Great idea, that reminds me of vibrators! Men have to put the seat down so women should wear gloves when they take their tampons out! Get off my lawn! I'm a pig and proud of it! I'm not a misogynist because women are perverts too!"

    There are things that women could be upset about men (and things that men could be upset about women) but being upset that the toilet seat wasn't lowered always struck me as over the top... a sign of someone too self centered. Maybe men should be upset that women don't raise the seat after they finish so the man won't have to when he is in a hurry.

    Finding a raised toilet seat should be reassuring to a woman that the man raised the seat before pissing so didn't piss on the seat.

    Just be glad women don't expect you to wear a special piss-yellow glove while you aim your pee-pee.

    I'm not trying to be snarky, but it seems to me like the invention has some merit, and that there could be a female audience out there for it. But if not, then the product fails and the company goes out of business. Like with any other unneeded or poorly marketed product.

    I'll admit I don't follow female menstruation issues so I'm a bit uninformed, but my question to the ladies is, if you do need to remove a tampon for some reason, and there is not a trashcan around, what do you do with it? Like if you're on a long hike or out for a run or something? Littering is a bad idea, so do you just put it as-is in your pocket? You don't need the Pinky Gloves product, but it seems like having some sort of plastic bag handy to put it in would be of benefit.

    I do know one poor guy whose wife makes him drop his pants and sit to pee. I keep telling him that he really needs to either grow a pair or install a urinal.
