Scotland, under the fevered Scottish National Party, recently became the first country in the world to introduce a law to widen access, free of charge, to sanitary products (for anyone – not limited to women, because it’s so transphobic not to), under the country’s newly passed “Period Products Act.”
And in a colossal act of mansplaining they put a male in charge of the entire program. Jason Grant, from Dundee, Scotland will also discuss issues around the menopause as part of his role. How amazingly tone deaf to have someone who has never experienced any of the problems afflicting women lecture and advise on solutions for them.
The world reacted.

Have we ever tried to explain to men how to shave or how to take care of their prostate or whatever?!? This is absurd.— Martina Navratilova (@Martina) August 15, 2022
Jason, Scotland’s 1st period dignity officer (he’s bloke in the blood red polo shirt) mansplaining menstruation to a couple of woman. Wonder if he’s ever experienced the horror of a blood stained dress in public, or the gut-wrenching fear of a missed period? No, didn’t think so. pic.twitter.com/HX7aZ4DBoZ— Susan Dalgety (@DalgetySusan) August 15, 2022
