All that she mentions about menstrual cups are "Some books I read about being more ecofriendly (including one written by a man) advised me to try reusable organic cotton pads or a reusable cup to collect my flow. Um, no. Thank you, kind sir, but I'll decline your counsel on matters of the female monthly cycle. And for now I'll decline anything reusable. (Please note: This is one of the few times when I didn't enthusiastically embrace, or even entertain, the idea of a reusable option)."
Then she goes on to talk about organic cotton tampons. I can completely understand that she doesn't want to use reusable items, but it might've been better if she at least explained what cups <i>are</i>, instead of leaving it up to the readers to do their own research. But with the obvious disgust she has about cups and washable pads, I don't see why anyone would <i>want</i> to research them.
So this leads me to my question. Have any of you read any books (it doesn't have to be about green living) that mention menstrual cups or washable pads in a positive way? 'Cuz this one made me feel like I was a dirty freak for liking my DivaCup.
