Questions for Discussion:
- Have you ever thought about the financial, safety, and/or other barriers that trans men and non-binary folks who menstruate may encounter? Why or why not?
- If your organization currently has gender neutral restrooms and facilities available, do you know if they include access to menstrual hygiene products and a place to throw away menstrual products? If not, is there anything your group can do to improve access?
- After reading this article, do you think the way you talk about menstruation will change? If so, what language will you use to be more inclusive?
