    College’s Plan to Offer Tampons in Both Men’s and Women’s Bathrooms is a Fiasco Due to Rampant Looting

    https://heatst.com/culture-wars/colleges-plan-to-offer-tampons-in-both-mens-and-womens-bathrooms-is-a-fiasco-due-to-rampant-looting/

    The University of Rochester recently launched a pilot program on campus, providing free tampons and pads in on-campus bathrooms, including those that are for men or designated as gender-neutral. The program isn’t going quite how Student Government expected, though.
    Just over 11,000 students attend Rochester University. But in the first two weeks of its Pads and Tampons Initiative, the university has gone through nearly 16,000 tampons and pads—in large part because people keep grabbing them in bulk, sometimes along with the baskets they’re stored in, the student newspaper reported.
    Student leaders initially claimed that the tampons and pads were disappearing so quickly because “people need them.” But they soon confessed that pranksters and thieves were making off with their supplies.
    In some cases, the baskets went missing as soon as they were placed in bathrooms, before they could even be stocked. And in one men’s bathroom, the baskets have disappeared three times since April 3, the Campus Times reported.

    Sounds poorly designed, for sure.

    I'd hate to see us try and discourage him.

    The problem is - he's doing the old False Equivalence dance again.

    On one hand, you see several of us here posting inverse examples of Troglodytes behaving badly. So he figures it's fair to offer some similar examples, by way of countervailing shenanigans.

    Problem is, the examples from the left are offered by way of evidence to support a clearly stated hypothesis. Something that this latest Trog has failed to provide. Lacking the intellectual and theoretical underpinnings, all he can prove is that people are silly. A position I doubt many would argue against.

    Another fundamental failure. He's edging ever closer to the UselessIgnorance file.

    Hey, these are your people. Bet this college gets some federal funding somehow. Maybe they should bring their tampons to the Dim tour to takeback Amurika.

    The University of Rochester is a private, nonsectarian, research university in New York State. The university has both undergraduate and graduate studies including doctoral and professional degrees. It has six schools and various interdisciplinary programs.

    It is noted for the Eastman School of Music and is also the home of the Institute of Optics, the first in the nation founded in 1929. The university's Laboratory for Laser Energetics is home to the second most energetic fusion laser in the world.

    Do you imagine the entire student body is made up of political liberals?

    You are are merely displaying your ignorance.

    Of course it is, liberals get degrees in Physics, a science. And music, oh my god, musicians are just a bunch of modern day hippies.

    I'm not sure what is liberal about this.

    Women even visit Republican guys in their dorms, although I've never known why. And Republicans have shown that they steal, too, so are we just complaining that college students are liberals?

    This nonsense does get tiresome.

    Beat me to it. Just down the road is Rochester Institute of Technology, very tech heavy, hardly a bastion of liberal thought, though they do have some top-ten fine arts programs. Very heavy corporate associations and high-tech research. Their eight Ph.D. programs: Imaging Science, Microsystems Engineering, Computing and Information Sciences, Color Science, Astrophysical Sciences and Technology, Sustainability, Engineering, and Mathematical Modeling.
    When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave.

    He probably believes that because they are literate, coherent, intelligent and do science, they cannot be Republicans.
