Twitter Backlash of The Day: Woman in Britain Are Outraged Tampons Have a 'Luxury Tax'
Members of the British Parliament voted 305 to 287 this week against removing a luxury tax on tampons and women's sanitary items.
Apparently, the government considers feminine products "non-essential, luxury" items.
Outraged women took to Twitter to protest the "tampon tax" and show off just how luxurious their tampons really are.
Over 250,000 people signed a petition against the tax.
But tampons are just SO luxurious.
Just had to decide whether to stick the silver plated or diamond encrusted tampon up my vagina. #luxury— Ann Scantlebury (@scanters) October 28, 2015
Was going to run a nice bubble bath but then I decided shoving a wad of cotton wool up my vag was much more of an indulgent treat #tampontax— Libby (@libbyarnold94) October 28, 2015
Makes you just want to curl up by the fire, open a bottle of the finest wine and put on your best tampon.
