This week, Twitter user @ilyseh shared this image of a plate of tampon-shaped cookies. The cookies were made by seventh-grade students as a protest after their principal said the school would not provide free tampons:
Nearly 10,000 people have commented with thoughts about the situation.
Most are just wondering how kids would "take advantage" of necessary health care products.
Some people jokingly shared ideas about how students could prove they wouldn't take advantage.
And other people talked about how helpful having things like free tampons has been in other schools.
In summary, people just had very valid points!
BuzzFeed has reached out to @ilyseh for comment, and we will let you know if there are any updates about the situation. Until then, life goes on...and so do periods.
