Girls, we all hate periods and wish that they would just stop. The fear of blood being leaked and making everything red is universal among girls. So this man from Kansas, USA invented something that he, in his twisted perception of how periods work, thought would be a “revolutionary invention” and now women around the world cannot stop cringing at it.
This product clearly wins an award for the most ridiculous products ever invented in the history of all inventions (yes, it is more ridiculous than nihari pizza)
So this product (God, I can’t even talk about it without cringing) is called Mensez
It’s invented by a chiropractor, Dr. Daniel Dopps. It’s an “Adhesive Vaginal Lipstick” also nicknamed as “Lipsticks for vagina” or “Vaginal glue stick”
Yes, you read that right, it is a lipstick for your vagina
The Facebook page of the product (which now seems to have been deactivated) contained the utterly unappealing description of the proposed product.
I repeat, it is a LIPSTICK for VAGINA that helps “control” period
According to The Wichita Eagle, local news outlet of the city the inventor is based in, when Dopps was called out for his creation, he responded by saying “you as a woman, should have come up with a better solution than diapers and plugs, but you didn’t. Reason being women are focused on and distracted by your period 25% of the time, making them far less productive than they could be. Women tend to me far more creative than men, but their periods that stifle them and play with their heads.”
Clearly, many women (and men) can’t believe this doctor’s claim
This guy trying to make Mensez is completely and utterly stupid. Periods are not a "distraction" and the glue is gross and unsanitary

Are we all going to ignore that the “glue your vagina” shut product is literally called “Mensez.” It’s mansplaining to the nth degree?

Gluing my labia shut is not pain free. Nor will it stop the blood from making its way out.

I think mensez should be a term used for painfully stupid misogynistic talk

The product has obviously raised a lot of questions and Dopps responses hasn’t really been very helpful. This man probably doesn’t even know that vagina is different from urethra.
Well, the good thing is that although the product has won a patent in the US, there is no proof or guarantee that it will actually ever see the light of day, other than Dr. Dopps’ claims.
