Please, someone tell me this is a hoax:

twitter.com/tramisogyny/status/1319366664496971777?s=19

I can't find anything on Google search to tell me it's fake - what's going on here? Lots in the comments section about it being a "fetish".

Go to the FWR board, you'll find stuff there about things like this you never wanted to know.

I’m assuming it must be a joke - look at the image of the ‘male vagina’ and talk of ‘male labia’ (is that bum flaps? I’m a bit concerned that I don’t have those). The constant use of the word ‘boys’ - it’s got to be some TRA shit that they will then find hilarious when women are outraged by it.

I don’t doubt there are fucking weirdos out there who get off on sticking tampons up their arse. My sister works in A and E and says there is nothing that some bloke somewhere would feel the need to shove up his arse. I just don’t think this particular image is intended to do anything other than piss off GC women

Yep there are AGP men out there who make every aspect of being a female into a fetish. Do pop over to FWR board to get your mind blown.

OP, there are male fetishists who boast openly online about raking through sanitary bins in women’s toilets to get used sanitary pads to wear inside their own underwear.
One day, they may find one that’s Hep B or HIV positive....

OMG, can open, worms, everywhere! I'm obviously too naive for this! and yet I'm open-minded. I don't really have a "problem" with it per se, but I'm worried about what it will do to sex education in schools - I sincerely hope this stays in the niche fetish "market" - in other words, you have to look for it as opposed to stumble upon it on SM.

i'm prepared to be flamed but i often wonder how much of men wanting to be women [not to the level of surgery that's a total and different subject] are using these excuses for fetish reasons, wanting to invade what should be women safe spaces, i.e loos and changing rooms.
it comes acrossthat they are more getting off on the fact that many women are angry that some men still regard themselves superior to women. a lot of them just come across as perverts, used sanitary towels ? wtaf ? <boak>

Surely this is a piss take as it says “do not become alarmed if your ‘clitoris’ becomes erect, THIS IS NATURAL”
🤣

EerieArmOff Fri 23-Oct-20 10:27:41

What's the FWR board? I really want to have a look but can't find it?

This is disgusting, I reckon someone has to be taking the piss - fetishising tampons is one of the grossest things I've seen in a while.

Eerie it's Feminist Chat, used to be Feminism and Women's Rights hence FWR.

EerieArmOff Fri 23-Oct-20 10:36:55

@Cocothefirst Ah, I see. Thank you!

Surprised there is no mention of risk of TSS....I suppose if the boys play hard enough with their tampons they can get there eventually.

"Use pantiliners between your periods". Fuck me.

Feminism chat really opened my eyes to how much trans stuff is just male fetish that we are expected to accept. This is one of them. There are YouTube videos on how to make fake blood for this purpose.

When I talk of the fetish aspect I am referring to older me n not confused teens.

Jayaywhynot Fri 23-Oct-20 10:54:53

I was wondering where they were going to insert them, then I made the mistake of clicking on the link 🙄

frewer Fri 23-Oct-20 10:56:02

As long as it's optional and not compulsory, then move on OP.

That's my take on most things that have niche appeal.

VenusTiger Fri 23-Oct-20 10:59:44

@romeolovedjulliet underneath the tweet, the tweeter says "If my memory serves me correctly, he found this guide somewhere else on the internet and simply shared it for his fellow tampon fetishists." - but it says it's for boys - sick!!!

@frewer aren't you concerned about the message? talk of tampon fetishists and it's a leaflet for boys - if we "move on" what will happen? We can't ignore this, I just wanted to know if it was real and worry it'll become part of education.

@EerieArmOff make sure you've nothing planned for the rest of the day and you have your beverage of choice handy. Your head is about to explode sad
oh and google Barbie Kardashian for extra fun.

'Trans stuff' is not about fetishism. Trans stuff is about trans people and their rights, and has nothing to do with fetishism. Don't confuse the two, it's this kind of ignorance and transphobia that gives this forum a very bad name.

ShebaShimmyShake Fri 23-Oct-20 11:32:07

It could just as easily be anti TRA satire. It's actually impossible to tell.

Emmelina Fri 23-Oct-20 12:04:07

I won’t point anyone to any links about Jessica Yaniv, but I’m sure a web search will tel you this is a big thing for some 🙃

Anotherlovelybitofsquirrel Fri 23-Oct-20 12:19:36

They can shove them in the end or up their backsides. If true, ridiculous.

W.T.F??? I don't think i exactly lead a sheltered life but I'm so naive to such activities. I have no words.
I need to look up the FWR board that's been mentioned to educate myself.

That's pretty much the underlying point of all the FWR posts on the subject!

A point that is twisted and thrown back at FWR by TRAs on a regular basis.

Many posters, like me, have made that point once a week/month or so for years. But it somehow goes unheard when a GC woman says it!

TheEmpressOfUtterBastardry Fri 23-Oct-20 12:35:04

Why would anyone want to shove a tampon up their arse? or rifle through bins for used sanitary towels? do they seek out shitty toilet roll as well and wear that in their pants? confused
