Heize brings awareness to the fact that sanitary pads are a necessity for women, yet are too expensive

AKP STAFF

On the May 21 broadcast of KBS2 'Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook', Heize performed on stage her newly released song, "HAPPEN". During the interview section of the show, MC and Composer Yoo Hee Yeol asked Heize, "You are currently receiving a lot of love from people, but during which moments do you feel that you truly succeeded?"

Heize replied, "When I stack up on sanitary pads. I feel some kind of reassurance from it, and quite satisfied." She continued on to say, "Pads are of great necessity for women, and it should be normal for you to use as much as you need without worrying about wasting it, but even as a student who received ten dollars a day for my allowance, I couldn't even buy one pack of sanitary pads. They are extremely expensive". 

Heize stated, "This category of necessity should not pressure me to save money on it, but I unintentionally end up being skimpy on my purchases of sanitary pads. It's something I constantly need, but I have a hard time purchasing them without having a lot of thoughts." She also said, "I created a sanitary pads kit, and donated them. I plan to continue donating them. I personally have a lot of memories regarding sanitary pads."

Yoo Hee Yeol related to Heize's recognition of this social problem, and replied, "I would occasionally read on the news that students would use the insoles of their shoes as a replacement, or just miss school for the several days that they were on their period. Reading these would make my heart hurt. I also have a daughter and I am aware of how expensive sanitary pads are. It would make me wonder, 'isn't this something that the nation should be supplying?' We need a lot of attention to this matter from you, viewers".

I just use a menstrual cup, it's better for your health, your walltet and the planet, but I get that not everyone may be able to use them, either due to simply not being able to insert them, not being comfortable with inserting something into their body, and of course there is also that whole thing going on where adults make younger girls believe that if they insert anything into their vagina then they won't be virgins anymore (which is stupid in itself because inserting something into your vagina doesn't equal having intercourse) because they believe the hymen is just tissue that doesn't have any holes if you're a virgin (there's such a thing as an imperforate hymen but that's not normal and causes problems), which really makes you question how stupid these people are because if they would use their non-existent brain, they would realize that if that were the case, there wouldn't any blood be coming out in the first place.

I personally think all sanitary products should be free everywhere- if not then maybe like 50p or something little as it’s not our fault that we bleed. Condoms are free and so should sanitary pads
