Reproductive rights come up a lot during election season and not all politicians have great things to say
. Esty shop owner Sarah Palatnik decided to make a statement about anti-feminist politicians and
make periods better, all with a pair of underpants.
Introducing Bloody Marys: Underpants made of leak-proof, moisture-wicking, absorbent, anti-bacterial fabric with attachable heat packs, to make periods more comfortable and eco friendly. But those super-cool features are not the main draw of Palatnik's underwear line. That would be the Blood Dumpsters:
What’s a Blood Dumpster?! Just a U.S. politician who has tried in the past or who is currently trying to pass legislation that hinders women’s reproductive rights, and in so doing has had his or her face wind up in the crotch of a pair of Bloody Mary undies, for YOU to bleed all over! As a bonus, $3 of every Bloody Marys sale goes to a Planned Parenthood located in the state governed by your chosen Blood Dumpster. Have fun, look cute, and be totally badass on your period with Bloody Marys!

or pick a pair up for yourself on Etsy
. They're $30 a pop (an investment if you're looking for eco friendly period options, a lot
under any other circumstances) and $3 of every sale is donated to Planned Parenthood.
The Esty shop also features any-day-of-the-month
underwear (with optional attachable heat packs) for women who are into the underpants but not into Ted Cruz's face in their crotch.
