I really don't know but the fact that this is on Tumblr makes me think that this is total ******** that isn't even remotely true.

No it's genuine, a lot of everyday things are invented through military medicine and science. Superglue was designed to quickly close cuts and gashes, cling film was designed to treat severe burn wounds and waterproofing aircraft in the 30's.

I don't know how/why i know this.

Actually the origin of tampons date back to egyptian/greek/roman times.

Holy **** this is so incorrect.

"The oldest printed medical document, papyrus ebers, refers to the use of soft papyrus tampons by Egyptian women in the fifteenth century B.C. Roman women used wool tampons. Women in ancient Japan fashioned tampons out of paper, held them in place with a bandage, and changed them 10 to 12 times a day. Traditional Hawaiian women used the furry part of a native fern called hapu'u; and grasses, mosses and other plants are still used by women in parts of Asia and Africa."

Yeah. I was like 'you know, that story could be plausible', thought 'is a tampon shaped thing remotely good for a bulletwound' and then 'Somebody please verify or deny this'. Standard procedure

No, women didn't wait until WW1 to find a solution, solutions had been found much, much earlier, dating back to ancient Egypt and Japan, however, it did take until WW1 to find a solution as effective as that.

Did some research, sadly this is ********.

Ancient Egyptians invented the first disposable tampon.
The applicator tampon with the removal cord was invented in 1929 by Dr. Earl Haas.

To clarify:

Women have used tampons during menstruation for thousands of years. In her book Everything You Must Know About Tampons (1981), Nancy Friedman writes "There is evidence of tampon use throughout history in a multitude of cultures. The oldest printed medical document, papyrus ebers, refers to the use of soft papyrus tampons by Egyptian women in the fifteenth century B.C. Roman women used wool tampons. Women in ancient Japan fashioned tampons out of paper, held them in place with a bandage, and changed them 10 to 12 times a day. Traditional Hawaiian women used the furry part of a native fern called hapu'u; and grasses, mosses and other plants are still used by women in parts of Asia and Africa."
The tampon has been in use as a medical device since the 18th century, when antiseptic cotton tampons treated with salicylates were used to stop bleeding from bullet wounds.

The first guy just left out the last sentence, basically the tumblr post is wrong because it says that that is how the tampon originated, which it didn't, however they were used to stop bleeding from wounds in WWI

Does a period typically cause death? No?? Huh...

I understand that it's a hassle. But stop comparing having a period to something that's obviously much more drastic.

Okay.

So while it personally does annoy me when girls post "Herp derp I'm a guuuuurl" what this is basically saying is that guys on the internet are so hopelessly intimidated by women in general in real life that they make up for it by punishing women on the internet, just for being women? What the ****.

No you got it all wrong. It sais that you don't have to say you are a girl. Everyone on the internet is equal. By saying hey guys I'm a girl you are destroying this equality.
Also it doesn't mention being intimidated by women in real life anywhere. It sais that men in real life pay attention to women in real life mostly because they think they can have sex with them.
