Tampon Tax

Tampon Tax

Postby HC. » Tue Nov 21, 2017 5:26 pm

I thought I'd just embarrass all of you (or maybe not) to highlight the issue of tax on sanitary products.

To me, taxing necessities like sanitary products is unacceptable.

Thoughts?

Never had the use for them personally but sometimes the old ways are just as good but not nearly as convenient.
On a slightly different note are child nappies taxed? As you can use terry nappies but then have the inconvenience of washing them.
So are you paying tax on convenience or are the old ways really not as good or hygienic?

In a selfish money-centric society where business rules and commerce is all, of course they'd be taxed, as would everything else.
In a society where it's understood that 'society' = people and it's organised with genuine desire for compassion, essentials wouldn't be. All depends on what sort of society you aspire to.

To far too many it's the former and I hear too much of that in england. For 3-4 years I've been living in Scotland again (only part-time as yet) and it is mercifully more inclined to the latter.
