Questions for Discussion:

  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. 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?
