A 15-year-old boy has become an Instagram sensation following a snapshot he shared of himself holding tampons in a feminist movement to help out his girlfriends who might experience one of the period mishaps unexpectedly.

Jose Garcia, a student from Miami posted the photos in a desperate bid to urge his male classmates to carry a couple of tampons or pads around so they can help out if a female friend gets caught out by her period – and to make the point that we shouldn’t be embarrassed to talk about menstruation.

The caption on Jose’s photo reads: ‘TO EVERY BOY THAT FOLLOWS ME AND CALLS HIMSELF A MAN OR SIMPLY A GOOD HUMAN BEING.”

“Petition for all of us to start bringing a couple of pads or tampons to school to help our girl friends.

“If you have a girlfriend or are friends with a girl, you should know that they do not always have tampons or pads on them, and that sometimes their period just hits them without notice and have a bit of a problem finding one.

“We should support them with this, after all, we don’t have to go through all they they do because of menstruation, so it’s just logical that we help them. You should already know to give them your sweater and not question when they wrap it around their waist.

“To every girl that follows me. You are completely welcome to ask me for a pad at any time without receiving a negative response or a dirty look. We should all help each other out like this so you don’t have to thank me at all.”

According to Mirror UK, Gracia said he was inspired to carry about the tampons because he wanted to remove the stigma around menstruation.

He said, “I believe that asking for a pad or a tampon shouldn’t be such a taboo thing to boys,’ he said. ‘It’s a natural thing that happens to women.’

Jose’s now famous Instagram post, with over 18,000 likes, finished with the hashtag #realmensupportwomen, which has already been tweeted hundreds of times.

Just as expected, however, everyone must not be fair in their comments. Some of his friends had already lashed out on him for the act which they consider as bizarre.

But Gracia seems unabated as he called out on haters by posting a photo with the caption, “‘My only regret is not checking my grammar before posting. Lol.”
