UK-based organization ‘Plan International’ has launched a campaign to have a menstruation emoji to be added to the standard choices on smartphones.
The organization is offering five emojis which they are asking social media users to vote on. They will submit the winning emoji to the Unicode Consortium, who chooses the emojis to be included on phone keyboards.
Options for users to vote on include a bloody sanitary pad, bloody underwear, drops of blood, a period calendar, and a uterus.
“When you can find an emoji for pretzels and pianos, why not for periods? I’m fairly sure the average British woman has more periods than she does pretzels. Meanwhile, there are four different emojis for bicycles – but not a single one for something that happens to half of us, every month, for a huge portion of our life,” Tanya Barron, CEO of Plan International UK, wrote in an announcement in the Huffington Post.
Barron explains that every month “women will hide their tampons, slip them up their sleeves as they go to the bathroom, suffer in silence when the cramps start and avoid talking about how menstruation is affecting their mood and how they’re feeling for fear of being judged.”
Men also get boners and fear people seeing them for being judged — yet I doubt that the organization will be calling for an erect penis emoji to be added to our keyboards.

The organization cites the true, and alarming, fact that girls in third-world countries not having access to sanitary pads or tampons often leads to them missing school. The group does not explain how a girl without access to sanitary products will be helped by the emojis, which they are unlikely to even see.
The fascination with periods on the left is bizarre and best, and often gross and unsanitary at worst. Perhaps it wouldn’t be the end of the world to keep some things private.
Plan International UK describes themselves as “a children’s charity.” Their website boasts that they “strive to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world.”
A Researcher at Brown University Claims that Trump Signs and American Flags Frighten Black People
America’s “Finest” Institutions Down the Insane Path of Wokeness
Carycruz Bueno, a postdoctoral researcher at Brown University, tweeted about how Black Airbnb guests may actually receive trauma from looking at Trump signs.
A few weeks ago Bueno tweeted that the online vacation rental company “doesn’t understand the trauma” that Trump signs allegedly cause for Black people.
As Ben Zeisloft of Campus Reform noted, “Airbnb rentals are privately owned properties listed for short-term and long-term rental on Airbnb. Airbnb, unlike hotels, does not own the properties. It is the platform that connects private owners with renters and facilitates payments.”
Bueno claimed that when she and her husband arrived at a property they rented in Maine they saw “Trump signs and other white nationalist symbols” in the yard. Bueno recalled that she was “immediately scared” for her life and her family’s safety.
According to Bueno’s account of the situation, Airbnb said they could do nothing to address the situation. The Brown University researcher said that this a “prime example [of] how White companies make a BLM statement,”and then proceed to “do nothing” when a Black person declares that she doesn’t “feel safe.”
Bueno is of the opinion that Airbnb is “only words no action,” and should “do better” to accommodate the grievances of so-called persecuted groups.
She also advocated for the establishment of a “greenbook version of AirBnB” in order for BIPOC (black indigenous people of color) not have “to pay to feel uncomfortable and scared.”
Bueno even went as far as to say that the American flag could serve as a symbol “used in many places to scare Black people,” on top of KKK and Confederate symbols.
Several conservative students on campus were not happy with Bueno’s remarks.
Brown University Students for Trump President Emma Rae Phillips said to Campus Reform that she is “disappointed by Bueno’s comments.”
Phillips is an economics major and observed that Bueno’s “tweets do not seem to show much understanding of how free markets work” given how people who use Airbnb can patronize other services instead.
Additionally, she noted that “American flags and Trump signs are not racist in any way, shape, or form.”
With how radically indoctrinated many students have become, you can only expect the most outlandish of behavior coming from these students. Late stage political correctness if you will.
Conservatives may have to social distance themselves from these institutions of higher learning. They’re more like indoctrination centers at this point.
