Social Justice Washrooms

Virtue-signaling at its finest, from tomorrow’s generation of American elites:

Brown University students are returning to classes this semester to find free tampons and sanitary napkins in academic building bathrooms.

The students leading the initiative at the Ivy League school say the products are a necessity, not a luxury — an argument that’s being made across the country in efforts to stop taxing feminine hygiene products.

The products will be available in women’s, gender-inclusive and men’s bathrooms in nonresidential buildings. Students wanted to offer the products in all bathrooms to be inclusive of transgender people, said Viet Nguyen, president of the Undergraduate Council of Students.

Nguyen hopes to motivate other universities and student governments to take similar actions to address this issue of equity.

Meanwhile, the world takes note of the United States’s moral leadership on this front.
