A recent study

Interesting fact for the day: a recent study concluded that people had  a worse impression of a woman if she dropped a tampon out of her handbag as opposed to a different innocuous item, for example a hairbrush or a packet of paracetamol.  Even more disturbing, those people would then avoid sitting next to that woman.

What is it in our cultural norms that makes us think, behave and react this way? I don’t have the answers, by the way, just posing the question.
