    Japanese store reviews 'menstruation badges' for staff after outcry

    https://www.sbs.com.au/news/japanese...f-after-outcry

    A plan to give staff the option to wear a 'menstruation badge' at work was aimed at ending the taboo around periods in Japan, but has been criticised for encouraging stigma.

    A Japanese department store is reconsidering a plan for employees to have the choice to wear badges when they're menstruating.
    The plan was originally aimed at fostering sympathy among co-workers but triggered a public outcry.
    The Daimaru Umeda department store in Osaka said on Thursday that it had hoped to encourage bonding by having menstruating staff wear a badge featuring an existing manga character named "Seiri Chan" - loosely translated as "Miss Period."


    We received many complaints from the public. Some of them concerned harassment, and that was definitely not our intention. We're reconsidering plans now," said a male executive who declined to be named.
    A spokesperson was not immediately available.

    Wow I'm actually kind of outraged. I'm glad it was only optional but it still annoys me that some dickhead probably thought this was a genius idea.

    I'd wear it every fucking day.

    Maybe assholes would leave me alone and people would leave chocolate on my desk.

    if you're so incensed that you can't fly your penis in public take it up with your state, arrange a nude protest, go and be the rosa parks of cocks or something - witchcurlgirl

    How about a character named "Missed Period"?
