Actor Siv Ngesi did not mince his words when he took aim at men this week around the debate on sanitary pads.

This after the star took to Twitter to open a conversation about his view that sanitary pads should not be sold.

Siv posted a picture of a pad and a tampon with a caption saying that if men menstruated, “sanitary products would be free”.

“If men bled once a month, sanitary products would be free #taxme,” he wrote.

Siv’s tweet started a debate on the topic and in a conversation with a Twitter user who believed the notion of free sanitary pads was simple and could not understand why the country was still getting it wrong, Siv said he believes it is because such decisions were made by men who “make the big calls”.
