Yes, sorry, it’s another post on transgender problems. But you might as well hear about it, since it will be affecting you sooner or later. As Twitchy reported last winter, the Brighton & Hove City Council in the U.K. had approved guidance for school teachers to promote that “all genders” can have periods and “menstruation must be inclusive of all genders”. Disposal bins used for menstruation products were to be provided in all school restrooms.
PinkNews reports that YouTuber Jamie Raines is calling for period products to be less gendered — tampons and such are all marketed toward women, when men can have periods too.
Are period products too gendered? https://t.co/SWzqQXOJj9

I mean, I really hope so.

“It can be quite hard to navigate having periods as a guy when everything to do with periods is aimed very much towards women,” Raines said, adding that buying sanitary products makes him uncomfortable because “the advertising and packaging are very female orientated.”
Wonder why that is?
Wow. This is a new plateau of insanity. Men do not get periods you lunatics.

If you are having a period, you are not a man. But please keep telling me how you are the ones that get science.

Can anybody explain to me how sanitary towel and tampon boxed are more effeminate than the packaging for tissues, fabric softener, or air freshener?
My air freshener can has a bright pink top and flowers on it. I can't say it occurred to me I looked girly buying it?

Simple answer – no. Women don't care about the colour of the packaging, they care about the effectiveness of the product. A woman who identifies as a man would have the same priority I'd have thought, no?

In a word no. I’ve bought them in the past for my wife, as a ‘man’ that never bothered me at the checkout – he needs to man up 🙄

Only women have periods.

Oh man. 2019 is off the chain.

She may have a beard but if she's having periods, she's female. Her DNA will always be female. Jamie doesn't want to be female, yet still wants to dictate the direction of feminine products. Its time the tiny minority stopped dictating to the rest of us.

I'm a trans woman I'm fully aware of what products apply to my physiological needs as I'm sure does anyone who identifies as a trans man or non binary person. This is nothing but lunatic fringe SJW nonsense. pic.twitter.com/rT9OQ7E8zN

This country has gone from braving the storms of the sea, claiming & shaping an entire nation, exploring the unknown, boldly going into battle to defend our rights, going to the moon, & becoming a world superpower. Reduced to asking if fem hygiene products are too feminine.

Wow: Burger King's new feminist ad opposing the "pink tax" is super woke and "embarrassingly bad" https://t.co/gXAUwaaiXu
