while she majors in political science at Barnard College – she aims to be the next Sandra Fluke:
Columbia should pay for my period
While this may seem like a peculiar addition to the average student council meeting, that these requests needed to be made indicates the University’s utter lack of support for people who menstruate—a group that includes a significant portion of the student body. Sure, I can easily find a free condom on Barnard and Columbia’s campuses, but why can’t I find a free tampon in the bathrooms in Hamilton or Milbank? Why does the administration care about my sexual protective rights, but not how I handle my monthly menstrual cycle?
Why should it care at all, cupcake?
[The cost of attendance at Columbia U is $65,860; at Barnard College it’s $46,040. Maybe you should have learned to budget in a couple of hundred bucks for incidentals, like tampons and antiperspirant back when you were in high school.]
