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.
Menstruation is – as with the inverse, pregnancy – rather the definition of the feminine.
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!’
Time to end care in the community, no?
