Skip to comments.CBS News Parrots Idea That ‘People Who Menstruate’ Aren’t ‘Always’ Female

Talk about putting the men in menstruation! On Tuesday it was announced that feminine hygiene product brand Always would be removing the Venus female symbol from its packaging. CBS News reported, The announcement follows pleas from LGBTQ activists to make the labeling more inclusive of transgender and non-binary customers. Because apparently having feminine products coded as feminine is offensive and exclusionary.
According to CBS News, LGBTQ activists and allies have been publicly asking P&G [Procter & Gamble] to redesign the packaging to be more gender-neutral. They argued that using the female symbol is exclusive because not all women menstruate, and not all people who menstruate identify as women. Okay, but all who menstruate have the XX chromosomes that would make them biologically female.
This is the same nonsense that has the left and the liberal media editing their language to be ridiculously non-gendered. Intersectionality has forced feminists to change the names of their lady parts organizations and fight for the right of women and pregnant people to have abortions.
The CBS report gave the impression that along with LGBTQ activists, health advocates championed the move. I guess packaging design is a health issue now. They also noted a number of customers expressed outrage that the change appears to eliminate women but claimed the hashtag #BoycottAlways sparked a slew of transphobic comments on social media, while providing no evidence or explanation of what would be considered transphobic. Probably anything that wasnt outright praise and celebration.
They did, however, quote from pro-abortion activist and New York Times contributor Dr. Jen Gunter, who tweeted, Some trans men/non binary people menstruate. As do cis women who despise overly feminine products. Cis women who cant menstruate and trans women are harmed by the assumption that menstruation defines femininity. Less ink for printing better for planet. This is a win all around. How many style points in the intersectionality Olympics does she get for including environmentalism in that illogical screed?
In the Twitter thread, Gunter also hilariously cis-splained to NBC Out, the LGBTQ News and Information section of NBC News, They are menstrual or period products, not feminine products. She further lectured to everyone dying to get the latest scoop on woke messaging for period products, They are also not sanitary products as having a period does not make you unsanitary! Im pretty sure the phrase refers to the hygienic cleanup of blood and bodily fluids, not calling the user unsanitary, but what do I know, Im not a doctor.
Weve been told for decades by the left that its a mans world but now, with the activism from the LGBTQ community taking away womens spaces so theyre inclusive for men, its actually coming true.
What a bunch of loons.....:
Oh sht I REMEMBER that! Holy cow she did defend him! That freakin’ bag, how would she like her kids raped? What a sick demented cow.
Or signs of a rough night
or he could be just a faggot with AIDS
I consider anyone else’s body liquids that are anywhere outside their bodies as being “unsanitary”. Therefore, yes, tampons and pads are like diapers in being “sanitary products” “Sanitary products” are for keeping body fluids (and stink!) away from floors, walls, other people, etc...
These critters probably don’t wipe either.
Based on where his head is, he can take a look anytime
Agreed, but be prepared to fight!..............................
Roger that, FRiend
These people need to have f#%× idiots tattooed on their foreheads to warn normal people of their insanity
The Most Interesting Man in the World says, “I don’t always menstruate, but when I do, I’m a woman.”
Agreed. People can pretend to be whatever they want. They cannot force me to agree that they are what they say, nor can they force me to use very special pronouns.
This continuous forcing of people to goosestep reveals what most of us knew all along. It was never going to stop at tolerance. The goal for them has always been to be elite and above everyone.
to make the labeling more inclusive of transgender
But... aren't they female, too?
They say they're female. They insist everyone use "she" and "her."
If you’re dropping eggs the you be female.
There has been great progress in external beam radiation for prostate cancer in recent years. The beam is CT guided in real time sparing adjacent tissue.
Have you seen the disgusting ads for THINX underwear on TV? I thought I was losing my mind when I first saw it——and then saw it again.
Seen here on FR a few years ago:”Tolerance is the virtue of believing in nothing’’.
This is beyond ridiculous ! If a man bleeds down there he has something wrong with his genito-urinary system or the large colon portion of his digestive system. Bleeding down there for a man requires medical attention. If a women bleeds down there once a month it is a normal part of her reproductive system. These people promoting the garbage of it isnt only women who have periods are insane!
I was in the 30th day of the new system at Scripps in Torrey pines CA Nov/Dec 2014. Don’t know if that is what you are referring to.
YES! I couldn’t believe what I was seeing the first time it aired....and like you I saw it again. It infuriated me so much I e-mailed THINX and told them men do NOT have periods and they needed to seek mental health help. Well, the same day I sent the e-mail, I got a response saying they received my e-mail and would be contacting me in the next few days. A week later, I am still waiting for their response. smh
