  1. Many years ago, the band “Lard” (a weird project band, made up from people from the Industrial dance band Ministry and Jello Biafra from the Dead Kennedys) had a song, “Mate, Spawn, and Die” with the line in it, “If men bled, would tampons be free?” The answer is probably no (toilet paper isn’t free, after all) but still, things like this tax always make me be sympathetic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMkN0BfRorA
