Marjorie Taylor Greene claimed on Monday that a nationwide tampon shortage is being fueled by tampons placed in men’s bathrooms for transgender people.Supply chain issues and inflation remain a problem millions of Americans are facing, and tampons have been affected due to the rising cost of materials used to produce menstrual products.However, the Georgia Republican claimed the shortage is being caused by tampons in men’s bathrooms during an appearance on the conservative Right Side Broadcasting Network in her latest remarks against the transgender community.”Now there’s a shortage of tampons, and that’s probably because men are buying tampons,” Greene said during a discussion on the transgender community, denouncing what she called the “war on women.”While some businesses, schools and other public venues have begun putting tampons in men’s bathrooms, experts have pointed to inflation and rising production costs as instead causing the current tampon shortage.Cotton and plastic, two materials used in the production of tampons, have become more expensive due to the demand of making COVID-19 safety gear such as masks, according to a CNN report.

The issue has been further exacerbated by the Russia-Ukraine war, as both countries are key fertilizer exporters.Inflation has also hiked the price of menstrual products.
