‘Toni the Tampon’ Teaches Children Men Can Menstruate

Article here. Excerpt:

'The author of a children’s coloring book has invented a character named “Toni the Tampon” to instruct children that men can menstruate.

Cass Clemmer, the author of The Adventures of Toni the Tampon, has been using her coloring book character to “destigmatize” menstruation. Now, however, she also wants to “de-gender” the female biological process and to persuade children that men get periods too.

Clemmer’s latest adventure of Toni the Tampon is one aspect of the progressive campaign to blur the differences between male and female, and to ultimately create a “genderless” society which bars the commonplace civic distinctions between biological males and biological females in a heterosexual society.'

Sure a man can menstruate if he is by gender a male but by biology a female. The very notion of gender was created by a M2F transsexual specifically to separate sexual identity from sexual biology.

If one defines "man" biologically as an adult human male, saying men can menstruate is simply incorrect. But if you define "man" as a person who appears to be an adult human male, then yes, you could say that some men can menstruate.

The problem with what is happening with this coloring book thing is that the typical one-digit-age crowd may not and probably is not quite sophisticated enough to get the idea. All something like this will do is confuse the hell out of a bunch of kids.
