Feminists Campaign for Period Emoji to ‘Normalize Menstruation’

Published

on

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.”

Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification

Dangerous harassment.

Published

on

A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.

One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.

He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!

The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.

“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”

Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.

The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.

Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
