Feminine hygiene is a super subjective business that really comes down to every single individual. However, some people have noted that there exists a kind of product hierarchy that puts tampons above pads.
In order to find out what’s going on with the war between pads and tampons, one Tumblr user posed the question: “Why is it that people who wear tampons are seen as ‘strong’ and ‘cool’” while those who wear pads aren’t?
