Another large corporation has caved in to activists who do not know if they are male or female, this time saying that they will remove the ancient female “venus” symbol from the packaging of their feminine hygiene products.
In controversy that is pitting hard-line feminism against hard-line gender confusion,
Procter and Gamble has agreed to remove the symbol from the packets of its Always sanitary pads after claims of bias by transgender “men.”
In response, furious women are now boycotting the worldwide brand after its decision to cater to trans activists who were born female but still use sanitary products, because they are in fact still female.
The move has forced feminists into a surprisingly conservative position. They warn that P&G’s concession is a chilling move towards the ‘elimination of women’s biology’.
The cave-in by P&G comes shortly after Flora margarine stopped advertising on the website Mumsnet following accusations that the parenting website is “transphobic,” which also sparked a boycott as reported by the U.K. Daily Mail on Sunday last week.
A transsexual activist using the pseudonym ‘Melly Boom’ had tweeted in July asking Always why it was ‘imperative’ to have the symbol on their feminine products.
The tweet said: “There are non-binary and trans folks who still need to use your products too you know!”
The symbol on the packaging apparently prevented their use by “non-binary and trans folks.”
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.
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.
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 signaling from these big corporate brands who are capitulating to the trans agenda.’
