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.
If a guy is bleeding from his ass he needs to see a doctor ASAP..could be rectal cancer
Or a really bad case of hemorrhoids.....................;^)
just trying to put the “men” in menstruate, I guess.
If I said it once I’ll say it again: It’s only a matter of time before these freakin’ psychopaths start promoting pedophile equality “It’s their natural sexuality!”
Perhaps true in the media.
yes it could. Also if you have had radiation for your prostate, you might bleed in your urinary tract including unable to urinate (blocked by blood clots because the radiation can cause bleeding from the lining of the bladder).
Also you can bleed from the lining of your colon or rectum, because the radiation can effect the parts of the body near the prostate. It can take years to manifest the effects of radiation. Mine took 3, and 4 and half years. i have had bleeding from both areas.
All people who menstruate have uteruses.
Don’t post that on FB, they will ban you....................
They already are....................
For things I’m good at, I can identify as a man. When I do things poorly, I can just be a woman by choice. This proves that men are better than women, at everything.
He’s in heat.
“...because not all women menstruate”. Annnnd they won’t be buying your product. All “people” who need your product are biologically female. I’m not going to be offended that I don’t get prostate exams at the doctor. That’s “exclusionary” too. *eyeroll*
Him and Megyn Kelly.
How many perverts on the CBS staff?
The public has a right to know!
I’m an old lady who has traveled a lot and known a vast multitude of individuals. I have NEVER known a man who menstruates and I really doubt that anyone else has either. Unless one has a healthy uterus and working ovaries, one is NOT going to have a monthly period. You can bleed from “down there”, but it’s not going to be menstruation.
How long before one of these nutcases goes into a doctor’s office and demands a Pap Smear?.......................
How long before one of these nutcases goes into a doctors office and demands a Pap Smear?
Doesn’t Schiff get one regularly?
That’s a truly reasonable and sane opinion.
OFF TO THE REEDUCATION CAMPS WITH YOU!...................8^)
