  • Sorry, Jezebel and Shine, but it’s not anti-feminist or anti-woman to blame tampons for clogging up the pipes and septic systems. (Note also that blaming tampons is not the same as blaming menstruation.) Tampons do not disintegrate or decompose when flushed, they expand. Their purpose is to absorb liquid. Don’t flush them.
