To his surprise actually, the internet is tearing this doctor apart for something he invented that he believes could be a revolutionary product. A doctor in the USA has filed a patent for a product that he hopes will replace pads, tampons, and the more common products used for women's reproductive health. His idea though has been majorly shot down and because it sounds kinda terrifying. He invented what is essentially a glue stick, not kidding, to glue together downstairs for when women are menstruating. According to the doctor's LinkedIn:
Mensez feminine lipstick is a natural patented compound of amino acids and oil in a lipstick applicator that is applied to the labia minora and causes them to cling together in a manner strong enough to retain menstrual fluid in the vestibule above the labia minora where the vaginal opening and urethra exit. The Mensez compound is instantly washed away with urine, which releases the menstrual fluid along with the urine into the toilet every time a woman urinates. No pads or tampons are needed. Safe, secure and clean.
WTF? That is a bad idea on just so many levels, and women are losing it. I mean it's not the first time some ignorant dude has proposed a DUMB solution to a women's health issue without...you know...consulting any women about it. 🙄 I think it's safe to say this product won't really be happening any time soon. As a dude I even think this is nuts, but ladies lemme hear ya. How do you lovely ladies out there feel about this product idea? Check out the full patent request HERE!
