Teen Vogue: ‘We Need to Think Beyond the Incorrect Idea That Periods Are Just for Women,’ Wants Tampons Provided in Men’s Bathrooms

Teen Vogue, the publication that encourages teenagers to consider sex work, is now telling their young readers that “we need to think beyond the incorrect idea that periods are just for women” and that tampons should be available in men’s bathrooms.

In an op-ed for “National Period Day,” Courtney Roark, the Alabama policy and movement building director at URGE: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity wrote that “we’ve been socialized to understand reproductive health, including periods, assumes a person’s gender indicates their reproductive organs — which is not the case.”

“The truth is, not all women menstruate and not all people who menstruate are women,” the op-ed asserted.

The article argued that feminine hygiene products should be “freely accessible in schools, shelters, and prisons, and eliminating the ‘tampon tax,’ or unfair sales tax on menstrual products.” The author explained that since trans people are more prone to be in poverty, this effects them more than others.

Teen Vogue’s op-ed also calls for feminine hygiene products to be available in men’s bathrooms.

“At URGE: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity, our dream is for every bathroom to be gender neutral and stocked with free, healthy, and clean menstruation products. In the meantime, we are advocating to provide these products and appropriate disposals in all individual bathroom stalls and common spaces, including men’s restrooms,” they wrote.

There has been major controversy over this issue after a trans person named Jessica Yaniv, who was born male, began inappropriately photographing children in women’s restrooms and claiming that they have a period — which is obviously biologically impossible.

Over the summer, Teen Vogue faced backlash for an op-ed, titled ‘Why Sex Work is Real Work‘ from people across the political spectrum.

Written by Tlaleng Mofokeng, founder of an organization called Nalane for Reproductive Justice, the article calls prostitution to be decriminalized and for children to “fund public campaigns to decrease stigma.”

“The clients who seek sex workers vary, and they’re not just men. The idea of purchasing intimacy and paying for the services can be affirming for many people who need human connection, friendship, and emotional support. Some people may have fantasies and kink preferences that they are able to fulfill with the services of a sex worker,” the article, aimed at children as young as 13, states.

The hyper-political and extremely far-left magazine also published a lengthy article last year glorifying abortion and calling for colleges to offer the procedure on campuses. The article was titled “Teens Are Speaking Up About Their Abortions Through Youth Testify” and told the stories of young women who became abortion advocates after having one.

One of the women describes how she “wants the world to know how much relief and joy her ability to get an abortion has brought her.”

The magazine has also promoted an uncritical “Antifa explainer” which glorified the violent groups and explained to their young audience what they can also do “in their own lives to stop fascism.”

Teen Vogue additionally came under fire after they published a how-to explainer on having anal sex that originally did not even mention practicing safe sex or waiting until you’re older. 

“This is anal 101, for teens, beginners and all inquisitive folk,” author Gigi Engle wrote in Teen Vogue’s “A Guide to Anal Sex.” The original version of the story included nothing about engaging in safe sex — but was later edited to urge their teenage readers to use condoms.

Teen Vogue defended the article by calling concerned parents “homophobic.”

“The backlash to this article is rooted in homophobia,”Phillip Picardi, the magazine’s digital editorial director, wrote on Twitter. “It’s also laced in arcane delusion about what it means to be a young person today.”
