‘They Are Not Girls’: High School Asks Boys To Stop Putting Tampon Dispensers In The Toilets


An Oregon high school asked boys to stop vandalizing its bathrooms after stocking them with free menstrual products, according to a Friday email obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Over the last few weeks, Lakeridge High School officials have said that tampon dispensers were taken off the wall in boys’ bathrooms and placed in the toilet, according to an email obtained by the DCNF. All K-12 bathrooms in the Lake Oswego School District offer free menstrual products for students in order to comply with state law which requires schools to provide such resources in gender-neutral, male and female restrooms.

“This is a perfect example of throwing away tax dollars in Oregon public schools,” Caroline Moore, vice president of Parents Defending Education, a parental rights in education group, told the DCNF. “This isn’t about vandalizing school property-we all know that is bad. The boys are signaling they are not girls and they want to be left alone. It is appalling that any school district is furthering the bizarre agenda from the left where they neglect science and believe men require tampons. Aren’t the teachers supposed to be teaching them elementary facts, like I don’t know, anatomy?”

Lakeridge High School attached a photo of a tampon dispenser in a boys’ bathroom toilet as a part of its email asking the school community to help stop the vandalism.

In 2021, Oregon enacted the “Menstrual Dignity Act” which requires public schools to provide all students, regardless of “gender, age, ability [and] socioeconomic status” with menstrual products. The act aims to prioritize “four pillars,” including “privacy, inclusivity, access and education”

The high school provided parents with resources on “menstruation, menstrual products, sexuality and health,” to aid them in conversations with their children about the topics, the email stated. The resources included two videos which explain that menstruation is a normal part of puberty for a “person that has a uterus.”

Growing Up OK,” a brochure on puberty provided in the email and recommended for grades K-12, explains “wet dreams,” erections and ejaculations.

“Each time that the dispensers are taken down, the school needs to spend time and resources putting them back up in order to be compliant with House Bill 3294 [Menstrual Dignity Act],” the email stated. “We are asking our student body to be respectful of school property, and to be sensitive to all of our student’s needs.”

Lakeridge High School did not immediately respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.

  1. Want the boys to stop putting tampon dispensers in the toilets? SIMPLE SOLUTION!!!!! Stop putting tampon dispensers in the BOYS bathrooms. Duh. School administrators are really becoming the new definition of retardation.

  2. There must be some enterprising young man in that high school who could engineer a science fair project incorporating this never ending, tax payer supported tampon supply into his entry. Perhaps a famous architectural wonder constructed entirely from tampons that he could call the Taj Ma-stall or maybe just repurpose them into Depends like pads for the White House.

  3. The state should stay out of other people’s nether regions, it seems it’s where their brains have been for far too long already. Where did everyone’s right to “privacy” go? A bunch of meddling fools trying to run things that is none of their business and they’re running them right into the ground at warp speed. The kids have more brains than those who get paid to be the brains that solve problems, not create them.

  4. The taxpaying citizens in Oregon should be proud. This is what you voted for and tampon dispensers in every boy’s restroom in every high school in the state is what you are buying. Well done, morons……

  5. Why is this even a point of discussion?

    Here’s a little anatomy lesson. Girls, that is, FEMALES, have a uterus. They may need a tampon dispenser in their restroom. Boys, that is, MALES, DON’T have a uterus. Therefore, boys do NOT need a tampon dispenser in their restroom. If one has a uterus, one is a FEMALE. If one doesn’t have a uterus, one is a MALE. End of discussion.
