Now, to make this entry mine, just wanted to share this tidbit... I was talking to my new boss and somehow menstrual cups came up (I've been working this job for all of three weeks and already I'm proselytizing, lol). She told me that when she was in Thailand, her bus stopped and they all got off to use the toilet. Beside all the women's toilets were these MOUNTAINS of used menstrual products. Not only did it look unpleasant, but it was also summer... in Thailand... apparently the smell was ATROCIOUS. Now there's an image I'd like to see on every pro-cup poster, amiright?
