NPR Ripped Online For Using Phrase 'People Who Menstruate' Instead of 'Women'

National Public Radio was blasted online Friday after the taxpayer-supported media organization used an alternative phrase in place of “women” in reporting on a growing nationwide shortage of tampons.

“Tampons, a necessity for many, are becoming harder and harder to find. People who menstruate are saying it’s hard to find tampons on store shelves across the U.S. right now, as supply chain upsets reach the feminine care aisle,” NPR noted in a tweet containing a link to the story.

First and foremost, amongst the human species, only females — more commonly known as women — can menstruate, and several people online reminded the wokesters at the media outlet of that fact.

“Just identify as a man. Then you don’t have to worry about your period anymore,” conservative poster “AdamInHTown” noted.

“Who menstruates?” former OANN host Liz Wheeler, a current leading conservative podcaster, added.

“WOMEN,” responded Christina Pushaw, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ communications director.

Others chimed in as well.

In the larger context of the article, the shortage of tampons is just the latest disaster for the Biden regime, which has already presided over other shortages including baby formula — even as Biden’s policies and the congressional Democrat majority’s spending bills have led to hyper-inflation with ever-rising gas, diesel fuel, food, and energy costs.

“I just went to 5 different Walgreens [and] the shelves are CLEARED,” said one Twitter user this past week, while people on Reddit have posted about empty shelves going back months.
