Republican-themed “blood dumpster” underwear for sale

By WITW Staff on March 30, 2016

A small American company is aiming to make periods fun again with a new line of high-waisted underwear bearing the faces of Republicans in opposition to the reproductive rights of women. Bloody Mary Undies calls these politicians “the blood dumpsters.”

“These are the faces of politicians who have actively worked to pass legislation that will hinder women’s access to abortions, birth control, and Planned Parenthood, an organization that does more than provide birth control and abortions, but also offers education, STD tests, health exams, and so much more to people of all genders,” the company writes on its website. Faces include those of former Florida governor and former presidential candidate Jeb Bush, Ohio governor John Kasich, The Donald, Senator Ted Cruz, Tom Emmer of Minnesota’s 6th District, and America’s favorite dim light bulb of a sweetheart, Sarah Palin.

The company’s Trump pair was inspired by the presidential hopeful’s comments on Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, whom he said had “blood coming out of her wherever” after she challenged his record of misogynistic comments during the first Republican primary debate last August.

The company has seen such high demand for the line that orders now take 4-6 weeks. A portion of each sale is donated to Planned Parenthood.
