>President Obama has long boasted that he is a staunch defender of women's issues and he's a proponent for equality in the health care system, but something seems to have slipped through the cracks... and it was a YouTube star who told him.
>During an interview with the Commander-in-Chief, Ingrid Nilsen, one of several YouTuber's to chat with Obama, asked why there was a "luxury tax" on sanitary pads and tampons in many states.
>The president was totally caught off guard by the question, saying he had "no idea" why states would tax such a thing, and he confessed that he had never heard of that before.
>"Recently I was shocked to learn that pads, tampons and other menstrual products are taxed as luxury goods in 40 states," Ingrid, who often speaks about women's issues, told the most powerful man in the world. "I don't think there is anyone who has a period that thinks it's a luxury."
>"I think that's fair to say, Michelle would agree with you on that," Obama replied.
>He continued, "I have to tell you, I have no idea why states would tax these as luxury items. I suspect it's because men were making the laws when those taxes were passed."
>A good sport, the president said he was happy to learn this news but told Ingrid that there really isn't much he can about that as those issues don't fall under federal law.

>get an audience with the most powerful man in the world
>ask him this
>he takes it seriously
Friendly reminder that the SJW menace is no longer a fringe minority relegated to the internet. Friendly reminder that these "people" are taken seriously and are going to be the death of Western civilization.

Okay, I hate women, I really do, but a tampon tax is sort ridiculous.

>wars going on
>geopolitical issues
>environmental issues
>economic issues

>bitch asks about MUH TAMPON TAX

It's stupid considering those taxes can't be controlled by the federal government anyway. Why waste his time on stupid shit? SJW are idiots.

Condoms are taxed, razors are taxed, and so are every "male product" what the fuck is the shit?

>the death of Western civilization.

The decline of Western Civilization started before you were born. It is ineluctable. The only question that remains to be seen is whether or not it takes the whole world down with it.
>>
Tampons are not a necessity because there are reasonable alternatives. For example the diva cup, period reducing pills, pads.

Women don't give a fuck. It's 2016. They want free/cheap stuff and anyone who wants to stop them is an evil misogynist. Pointing out more pertinent issues is an MRA tactic designed to silence women and distract from the struggles that literally every single woman faces.

>doesn't know what its like to involuntarily bleed every month
>HURR durrr seek alternatives
>meanwhile never has to seek any alternatives.
I bet you think every other alternative is cheaper.

Sure it's stupid to ask that to the president, who isn't the most powerful man in the country run by jews, but tampon tax as a luxury item? That's pretty fucking bullshit.
