So I was talking to my mom today and I decided to ask her if she had heard of alternatives to tampons and pads. She hadn't so I told her about sponges. she said "that doesn't seem safe." Then I told her about cups and she was like "hmm...how long have those been around?" So I told her and she said that she wished she had known about them when she was younger so she could try them out. I was shocked. I figured she would say that it was gross and that I shouldn't use one. Next on my list to tell are my sisters.
