IO: I've had it with feminine hygiene products

I've sent a letter to the leading company in feminine products on the market today. I share with you:


Dear Kotex,

I recently noticed that the peel-off strip of my
pantiliner had a bunch of "Kotex Tips for Life" on it.
Annoying advice such as:
-Staying active during your period can relieve cramps.
-Avoiding caffeine may help reduce cramps and headaches.
-Drink 6-8 glasses of water a day to keep you hydrated and
feeling fresh.
-Try Kotex blah blah blah other products

Obviously the person behind this was someone who has
never possessed a functioning set of ovaries.

Go ahead and tell a menstruating woman TO HER FACE
that drinking 6-8 glasses of water will help keep her
feeling fresh. See what happens and report back.
I'll wait.

While you're at it, dump out the coffee at work and
remove the chocolate from the vending machine. I
guarandamntee that the first responders will be
females who just ovulated.

Look, females don't need or want tips for living on
feminine hygiene products. Younger girls are already
hearing "helpful" crap like that from their elderly
relatives. Veteran females have already concocted
their own recipes for survival, many containing alcohol.

Printing out sh*t advice while sneaking in ads for the
brand THAT WAS ALREADY PURCHASED is just plain
annoying, not to mention rude and enough to send a
girl running to the Always brand.

Mostly we'd like to forget that we even need these
products. It's not a fun time, but DO NOT try to
cheer us up by adding smiley faces or bunnies or
flowery cutesy crap to your products or the packaging.
Put the sh*t in a plain brown wrapper so we can throw
it in our carts discreetly and have it
blend in among the wine and beer. There is nothing
more annoying than having a blinding pink package
announcing your uterine state to everyone in the store.

The ultimate goal of your product should be functional
invisibility at every stage, including at the point of
purchase.

So take your tips for living and shove them right up
your a**. (Try drinking six to eight glasses of water
to make you feel fresher while you're doing it!)

Ovarily Yours,


Miss PMS

Can you imagine their response to a letter like that? Will probably be free feminine products for a year - the ones with sayings on them

If somebody tried to take my coffee away from me during that time of the month, they would instantly be missing one hand. *chop chop*
