Meet the Florida Man Who Wants To "Become" a Disposable Maxi-Pad
Yes, Pad Gardner is from Panama City, Florida, and no, his dream to "become" a Maxi-Pad does not appear to be a made up Internet thing. Tweet him @TheFemininePad ladies! (Seriously, though, you can.)
The Daily Dot has done some serious web journalism to get to the bottom of perhaps the strangest dream in all of the Sunshine State, which is really saying something.
Here's what they found about Gardner. He listed four goals for himself in 2013:
- To change my legal name to "Pad"
- To start preparing for life as a feminine pad.
- To set a World Record for having the largest Pad collection.
- To become a pink (not green or purple!) disposable him, er, Pad, er, both.
Before you go judging Gardner (too late?), he wants you to know this is all for a good cause. Next month, he will be doing a Walk Across America to benefit his favorite cause, Toxic Shock Sydrome from tampons. In addition he plans on donating his entire stash of pads, AND HIMSELF OF COURSE, to the padless women of America. "Currently I own 1407 pads and 57 packs of pads. ... I am planning to donate myself and all the pads in the collection to women in need of pads once I have become a pad finally," Pad says on his YouTube page.
Pad isn't trying to shake the Pad community boat however, saying he wants to be treated like "any other normal pad, which probably means getting tossed into the trash."
