During a long day at work, and drinking too much Peach tea, I found this in the women’s washroom in the Journalism Department. I read this sign every day and I always wonder do we still need the reminder to not throw away pads or applicators in the toilet. I wanted to use the sign, before the added text, as a photo blog to make my point: this should now be embedded into the minds of all women +18. I started my period at 12, so for 11 years I have known NOT to flush these items.
So upon reading the sign, as if I don’t know what it says, I now see the bonus text of “Dreams and Ethics are okay, though.” I don’t know who wrote and I won’t get into my reasons of what it could mean. I just think it’s interesting, something to think about and gives a new spin to the redundant sign.
