Not married, but don't care- if I'm asked to get it I will. Size/brand/requirements must be given to me, though, otherwise I'll bring home one of everything.

I can't say for sure, but it's not like I think badly of men who won't do it (unlike some women). I was just curious.
There was a longtime regular who thought periods were so gross he was reluctant to let his wife sleep in the same bed that week.

That could also have been due to the PMS/MS and cramps she was experiencing.

Then - try as I might - I can not think of a single solitary reason why this may be either. What could possibly be gross about purchasing an as yet to be used sanitary product? That makes about as much sense as refusing to go to the store to purchase toilet paper for your mother - because at some point in the future she will be applying it to her own soiled rear end.

There are some Biblical references which would support him too. AJ Jacobs wrote a book called "A year of Living Bibically" where he tried to put those references into practice. It involved his Girlfriend kicking him out of the bedroom entirely for that year - and him having to purchase as carry around foldable chair as the Biblical reference left him unable to use chairs on things like commuter transport.

I think this may be part of it. In general, society says women are weak, and things associated with women are weak and men don't want to be weak. That's why 'you throw like a girl' is an insult. So, when they have to buy feminine products, they're basically publicly showing society that they're doing something a woman would usually do which makes them weak simply because it is associated with women.

Not saying this is always the case, but it's a good guess.
