There are only 10 states that DON'T tax women for this. Maine does...and it is absolutely shocking and ridiculous. 

Maine is taxing women for having their periods.

You heard me. It's a so called, 'tampon tax'. I had no idea. Tampons, aren't considered a necessity (non-luxury) so they fall in the luxury category!

New York just passed a bill to get rid of this insane tax after four women sued the state. But that still leaves 40 states INCLUDING MAINE paying this mind blowing tax!

Hell, I don't even need tampons anymore, but I want to start a petition or sue the state and get this tax stopped! Who's with me?
