So according to this genius, girls as young as 10 should be going out and actively looking for jobs so that they can buy their own feminine products.

But why stop there? Let's go ahead and make them but their own food, clothes, school supplies, start up a retirement plan, apply for college, get a mortgage, buy a car, start their kids college funds, etc.

Some of us need to know that the question "how stupid can you be" is not a challenge.

The fact that you just had to make a whole new post about it, show the rest of us,how much this all means to you. It's probably a troll and you're the fool.

I try to assume that people like that are trolling, because if I allow myself to believe someone is that stupid I will lose all faith in humanity.

I agree with you. Even when my kids choose to work I will still provide all their needs. From food to hygeine. They merely need to pay their car insurance.

Once my kids worked they provided for themselves. But starting your period at 8/9 yrs old won’t allow them to just get a job lol

Yes, that way when they finally move out on their own , they have all these expenses that they have never had and then have to learn how to budget their money.

As opposed to learning while living at home, how to budget their money for necessities. ( I am talking teens).

Honestly me buying them toothpaste and tampons won't hinder their budgeting abilities. They have a savings account they manage, they will pay their insurance and anything extra they get they pay for...even now woth allowance.

Another thing is who says every one of these poor girls lives next to a store. Many rural areas are poor, if your a young girl who lives 5, 10, 20 miles from a store, how is she going to be able to obtain her own stuff? There are also suburbs that are miles from a store and have zero bus lines for them to hop on to get to a store. Kids are very much dependent on adults.

So did I but these days things are  different, parents need to provide but some don't.
