YUCK...sorry for the rant

At my school we've been back to campus for three days now, and you know it's bad when you need to talk to your (male) RA. Since all three days there has been menstrual blood on either the floor, toilet seat, or both.

And the disturbing part is that these girls use tampons and the occasional pad and yet end up with blood all over the stall, and I use a cup mess-free. The same thing happened last year and I was blamed for it since I use a cup, a sign was even put up telling me what sink I was allowed to rinse in until I complained and it was taken down the next night (the girl who was an EMT was the one who had the sign put up in the first place since it was "unsanitary"?!).

My question is what to do if the RA talks to them and it happens again, or if he doesn't and it happens. Or if they found out I was the one who complained and they decide to give me a rough time over them getting a lecture. I'm finding it hard to not talk to them myself but my goal is to avoid confrontation this year, and it is even harder due to the fact that I am very positive about menstruation and plan to continue in depth research on the topic...
