    Toni the Tampon...

    What a great world! Though I'm not quite sure how men can menstruate - I must just be unenlightened...

    Forget Dr. Seuss. The new Cat in the Hat on the block is “Toni the Tampon,” a character devised by children’s author Cass Clemmer to show kiddies ‘round the nation that men, not just women, can menstruate.

    Line forms on the left, people. “The Adventures of Toni the Tampon” is a coloring book and it’s coming to a market near you.
    I know what you’re thinking: Does Toni wear a cape?

    No, but the little white tampon does bring a message of hope to transgenders everywhere. And apparently, it’s this: God’s design of male and female can indeed be overcome.

    Clemmer on Instagram, bemoaned and bewailed: “The right-wing media has attacked my #periodcoloringbook all week — calling it ‘child abuse’ because it affirms trans and gender non conforming menstruators. In response, I am donating all profits from this week to the @translifeline. If you stand with menstruators of all genders, please share this post. When they go low, we go high.”

    "We can understand hell in its aspect of privation. All your life an unattainable ecstasy has hovered just beyond the grasp of your consciousness. The day is coming when you will wake to find, beyond all hope, that you have attained it, or else, that it was within your reach and you have lost it forever.” C.S. Lewis

    Patrice the Pad, Sebastian the Sponge, Marina the Menstrual Cup and Toni the Tampon...

    Personally, I'm a fan of the absurd, and I can see the author is trying to do something about those who treat menstruation as something shameful... but I have to be honest it's a little gross for a coloring book.

    Laughing externally but cringing at the biological in accuracies and just the idea of kids having to learn what a period is through this.

    I wonder how much blood will be spilled over this absurdity. Men don't menstruate, period.

    That just proves what a Neanderthal you are!

    I like what you did there.

    The writer/illustrator means men who were born as womyn.

    Now I hear that the special forces sometimes put tampons in their guns--by which I mean their literal guns--in Vietnam to keep water out. This sounds like a legend to me, but maybe the book is illustrating military history.

    That's was one of the best bits of truth through comedy I have ever seen.
