Among the most bizarre occurrences on college campuses this fall was a “Menstruation Celebration” at Princeton University.
Two of the Ivy League school’s pro-abortion clubs recently held the event to “destigmatize” menstruation and to convince people to stop calling periods a “women’s issue, since transgender and non-binary people get periods as well,” according to the College Fix.
Princeton Students for Reproductive Justice and Princeton Students for Gender Equality made “vagina cupcakes” and “bloody tampons chocolate covered pretzels” for the event and played games like “Tampon Toss,” according to the report.

Menstruation, a monthly biological event in which the uterus sheds its lining if there is no embryo present, is widely understood by biologists and scientists to be a phenomenon that affects only females.
Neither Princeton Students for Reproductive Justice nor Princeton Students for Gender Equality responded to repeated requests for comment from The College Fix on the position that individuals other than women can menstruate. The Fix also asked the groups whether or not other topics commonly seen as “women’s issues,” such as abortion, should no longer be referred to as such.
It’s a good question because phrases that include the words “women” and “feminist” are plastered all across the groups’ social media pages, often coupled with their abortion advocacy.
The pro-abortion movement often tries to silence men who disagree with them on abortion, claiming that because they cannot get pregnant, they should not be allowed to speak on the issue. Abortion activists claim some men just want to control women’s bodies and they cannot truly understand abortion. Sadly, as a result, men legally have no rights when it comes to their unborn children. They cannot stop their child from being aborted, and laws do not even require women to tell the father of their unborn child if they are having an abortion.
This is all nonsense, of course. Men should be allowed to protect their own child’s life, born or unborn. And men have just as much a right to have an opinion about abortion as women, especially because every child is the creation and responsibility of a man as well as a woman.
It will be interesting to see how abortion activists deal with these issues in the future, now that they claim women aren’t the only ones who can get pregnant.
