See­ing red over Tam­pax ad

Joyce Fe­gan’s ar­ti­cle on men­stru­a­tion (Satur­day, Au­gust 1) be­gins by out­rage at 84 peo­ple who were of­fended at an ad for tam­pons on TV. I am as­sum­ing it is the one with the tag line ‘get ‘em up there girls’ .

In my opin­ion, this ad de­means and de­bases women with this smutty in­nu­endo and brazen de­liv­ery. This for me is where the of­fence is, not the sub­ject mat­ter of pe­ri­ods or tam­pons. Mar­garet Goode
