Today in: For Fuck's Sake

Apparently the Buffalo Bills cheerleaders have "vaginal hygiene" instructions in their handbooks. What the fuck is that doing in there, unless the person who wrote the handbook plans on pimping these women out for sex? I'm curious to know if there are other health-related instructions in there.

I couldn't tell you, for certain, that this was mansplainy - but it is splainy. If the person who wrote it isn't mansplaining, they're splaining under the assumption that these women are dipshits who do not know how to take care of themselves. Those tips are not necessarily "common knowledge" but...I'd be real weirded out if my boss gave them to me.

11. Intimate area's: Never use a deodorant or chemically enhanced product. Simple, non-deodorant soap will help maintain the right PH balance.

12. When menstruating, use a product that right for your menstrual flow. A tampon too big can irritate and develop fungus. A product left in too long can cause bacteria or fungus build up. Products can be changed at least every 4 hours. Except when sleeping, they can be left in for the night.



Edit: Smithwellette points out that Deadspin covered this yesterday - a lot better than I did, of course!
