Raise Your Hand If You Wore Pads For Way Too Long
Anna Walters

When I was in middle school, the only girls who wore tampons were the fast white girls — the ones who looked too old for their ages with too much stiff mousse for the wet and wavy look, face cake, and they had boyfriends so we knew they had had dicks in them, too. Pads were the standard for everyone else.

In high school, I don’t know why anyone would have known or cared who was wearing what.

I’ve often wondered why pads could not be made with less packaging or less noise or adhesive. Tampons are convenient on the go… You just have to be sure that they can stand alone…
