    Guys think of it as if there was a willy tax. Every year from the age you started puberty you had to go along and have your willy measured. If your willy was more than the national average you would be charged extra tax on top of it just because of the amount of it.
    Even though it's just part of you you'd be taxed on it....is that fair?
    No. But if once a month my "willy" produced a discharge that was unsanitary and a little unpleasant, but unfortunately necessary, I'd happily pay £60 a year for it to be contained. And if I didn't, I'd improvise a home-made method to avoid paying and just live with it.

    wait, you've trapped us. every man would claim that their willy is above national average and so can identify with this willy tax. clever. and anyway, the penis is the only thing for which the average seems to be lower than the lowest datum point. or so we would have you women believe. im gona shut up now.

    I'm not disputing that they're nasty. I'm disputing that sanitary towels are a necessity. They're definately a luxury as there's a cheaper, less effective method you could use instead, and indeed which was used for years before someone came up with disposable tampons. You're paying because you want to operate normally and have your period pass without a hitch. That's a choice you make; if you don't like the tax, struggle by with an old t-shirt tied down there and some liberally applied scent!

    Surely I'm offering them £60 a year to not masturbate? If it helps my arguement here, then by all means....

    Why is a reusable solution less hygenic than a disposable one, assuming it's cleaned correctly?

    Come on, justify your petition; I'm still far from convinced that these aren't a luxury!

    I don't know, I think I'm doing fairly well

    So far the arguement seems to be they don't want to smell and be all "icky," and therefore the government should subsidise their sanitary products?

    In which case, I now refuse to pay tax on shampoo, soap, shower gel, face wash, deoderant.............

    Well, it's insensitive for me to have opinions regarding the pain of periods, but I think it's perfectly legitimate for me to harbour opinions about whether or not sanitary products should be taxed....?
