At my local pharmacy the tampons, pads and liners are next to the bandaids and it annoys the hell out of me. I know it shouldn’t. After all, both exist to stop blood getting on your clothes. Maybe it’s because they’re near the Elastoplast – man, that shit is creepy. Something about the brownness of it, and the way the edges curl up and get dirty. It’s like nails down a chalkboard.
Periods are not an injury. A vagina is not a wound (enough you lot, I know the jokes). Therefore, tampons, pads and liners shouldn’t be next to the bandaids and Dettol. Mind you, today there was a special on Trix washing up liquid, on display next to the tampons, which was a nice douche-while-washing-up touch.
