Triggering symbol that represents the oppression of trans folks.
It’s always amusing to see the forces of Diversity fighting themselves.
On one corner, you have empowered women who pretend to be men fighting on behalf of the trans movement. On the other corner, you also have empowered women who pretend to be men but who are instead fighting on behalf of the feminist movement.
The maker of Always sanitary pads has given in to claims of discrimination by transgender men and removed the ‘Venus’ symbol of the female sex from the wrapping.
Outraged women are now boycotting the leading brand after the decision by makers Procter & Gamble (P&G) to kowtow to trans activists who were born female and still use sanitary products.
Last night, feminists warned that the concession is a chilling move towards the ‘elimination of women’s biology’.
The cave-in by P&G comes after Flora margarine stopped advertising on Mumsnet following accusations that the parenting website is transphobic, which also sparked a boycott as reported by The Mail on Sunday last week.
A trans activist using the pseudonym ‘Melly Boom’ had tweeted in July asking Always why it was ‘imperative’ to have the sign on their sanitary products.
The tweet said: ‘There are non-binary and trans folks who still need to use your products too you know!’
Sure, there are women pretending to be men that still menstruate, but that doesn’t mean that menstruation isn’t something female by nature.
If they are uncomfortable with the fact that their bodies menstruate and that they have to use these pads, then maybe they should just sew their vaginas shut or something and glue some kind of penis or dildo on top.
Another activist, Ben Saunders – named young campaigner of the year by LGBT charity Stonewall in May after making a documentary about being transgender – contacted the sanitary pad makers in June with a similar complaint.
Ben Saunders: male, female, or 12-year-old?
The Always marketing team replied with a comment that Saunders, 18, posted on Twitter, reading: ‘We are glad to inform you that as of December we will use a wrapper design without the feminine symbol.’
The message stated that sanitary towels with the new packaging would hit the stores by January 2020 and added: ‘We are absolutely grateful for having people like you voicing their opinions.’
But many of Always’s female customers have responded angrily to the move and are vowing to switch to other sanitary products.
Classic case of “piss off most people/customers because of this tiny and inconsequential minority of weirdos.”
Leading feminist campaigner Julie Bindel told The Mail on Sunday: ‘Removing the female symbol from sanitary towel packaging is basically denying the existence of women.
‘We’re now moving towards the total elimination of women’s biology. The women’s symbol has been used by feminists for decades. This is pure cowardice and virtue signalling from these big corporate brands who are capitulating to the trans agenda.’
If she’s against “the trans agenda” then she’s a Nazi. Simple as that.
Saying men can be women and women can be men is the genitalia-related spin of saying blacks can act just like whites and that whites are the same as blacks.
If we’re going to fight for Equality, then it doesn’t end with feminism. If everyone’s equal, then everyone’s equal — no matter the color of their skin or the shape of their genitals.
Women on social media sites also aired their fury at the decision by P&G.
Maya Forstater, a women’s rights advocate who lost her job as a think tank tax expert for saying transgender women are not women, tweeted: ‘The venus sign in biology is used to represent the female sex (you know, the ONLY people who will ever need these products). It does not represent gender identity.’
Another objector, Lizzi Watson, said: ‘Biological women should just boycott the brand, then they might realise real women have feelings too, which they have somehow ignored.’
Lizzi Watson, blinded by the female’s biological need to blame men, doesn’t realize that the ones who asked for this are also biological women. It’s just that they’re the kind of biological women who adopt a “male” appearance in order to pretend to be male, unlike the feminist kind of biological women who adopt a “male” attitude in order to achieve the same goal.
The saddest thing from this episode is that this is likely to be used as an argument to get brainwashed young girls on testosterone to stop them from menstruating, arguing that the evil red and the female symbol in the packaging of these pads
rape “hurt” them by reminding them that they are women.
