Menstrual cycles are for everyone?

If someone get's mestrual cycles that means that they have the biological parts that are female. Doesn't matter if someone is trans-male identified. There is no reason to have to remove a symbol.

A trans-man will never experience those biological things cis women experience.

'Always' removes female symbol from sanitary pads following trans activists' complaints

*** hi @Always i understand that you guys love girl positivity but please understand that there are trans men that get periods, and if you could please do something about the symbol on your pad packaging, i'd be happy. i'd hate to have any trans males feel dysphoric.

Women's products maker Always is at the center of a fresh feminist v transgender skirmish, after caving in to trans activists' outrage and removing the 'discriminatory' Venus symbol from its packaging.The company will drop the universally recognized symbol from December, following an onslaught of tweets insisting that women aren't the only ones who menstruate.
.
The decision may have appeased a handful of PC keyboard activists, but it has apparently enraged the bulk of the company's customer base – women, that is.
.
Feminist campaigner Julie Bindel told the Mail on Sunday that the move is akin to "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," she added.

The rush to acquiesce to PC crusaders has led to commentators – even some who identify as trans – to argue that the extreme activism is harming, rather than helping, the trans community.

Be civilized
Do not instigate, engage in, or encourage 'flame wars'. If you insult someone "jokingly", be prepared to have it not interpreted that way by the Moderators. A good general rule: "criticize ideas, not people."

So many things passed through my mind, At the end I was left with yeah okay i really don't care. But I am getting a little concerned with the SSDD mess, people spending massive amounts of time forcing people what to think, its the exact same behavior just the shoe is on the other foot. There are so many other thing that need human attention and solving. A symbol on a box seems mundane, how does that oppress you and prevent you from living your life? It damned sure isn't slave aunt jemima on a box or house boy uncle ben. How does the venus symbol equate to oppression?

It doesn't, these are just people looking for something to bitch about since they likely don't have much going on in their lives. And of course, corporations comply because they don't want the drama.

I feel bad for trans folks (the ones that aren't doing it for attention) but regardless of their own self actualization, their outside appearance and attitudes might change, but their chromosomal biology won't and making labelling a product made for women with a female symbol being made controversial is really stupid and petty.

Many male transgender still have cycles... I guess men do have them.

No one is coming for your abortion: they just want common-sense abortion regulations: background checks, waiting periods, lifetime limits, take a class, and a small tax.

I think a lot of companies should review their packaging. Radox is one that annoys me. It only does muscle therapy bubble bath 'for men' - why is that then? Aren't women allowed to have aching muscles too? Why not just take the word 'men' off?

For every 1 product for men there are 10 for women.

So why not take gender off them altogether and let the consumer decide which one they want?

Because that requires too much research.

...Consumer Reports are about.

.

There are products specified for mens bodies, specified for womens bodies.
.
For example. Men are not looking for smooth legs... not looking for a 'soft and supple' effect. women tend to want something for that.
a lot of men don't mind being a bit ruff.

Men sweet differently than women. Men don't want to smell like flowers or a lot of the sweeter things women like to smell like and on and on.

Most men don't use a lot of hair product, yes there are women that don't do much either, but overall women tend to have longer hair on their heads than men, so products that go for length/volume etc

female pattern baldness vs male pattern baldness.
.
The truth is mens bodies are different than female bodies. So there are different needs and requirements.

.

I know of women who like mens underwear. But again, mens underwear are made to fit hold compose what men have, not what women have.

But, menstrual cycles are not free for all. If someonen get's menstual cycles they are biologically having female parts.

.

I watched a documentary a few years back on "butch" women. They were focused on the lives of 3 different women. The documentary was actually called Butch or some other term I forget.

One of the individuals started having menstrual issues, but ignoring them, because the person felt so strongly they were male. That they started having physical problems and became ill.

.

I actually like to be able to go to the Folk, Rock, Jazz sections instead of sifting through everything by name for the most part.

Its called exerting one's privilege. I guess women proud to be women have to tone that down because its bothering others.

I think there is a lot of generalising going on there. Honestly, I don't give a toss about the Venus symbol, but I do think the whole gender marketing has gone too far and is about making us consume more rather than about us having different needs. FWIW I think a lot of marketing for children is the same (i.e. older children's toothpaste, bubble bath etc... (not babies)).

I don't disagree with the bold, but if the company have recieved complaints, and as a response have removed a symbol from their packaging then that is the company's choice. I'm not going to get my panties in a knot about a bit of packaging. I don't understand why people are so offended. A pad is a pad, no matter what it is wrapped in.

I'm not sure how you 'ignore' a menstrual cycle (without the world seeing that you have one) so I'm not quite sure of your point for the rest of your post.

But those are things that men and women think about. It's not stereotyping.

And there are studies on a lot of it.

Like:

What the researchers found was that the fit men, unsurprisingly, perspired the most, significantly more than the fit women, especially during the more intense exercise. But the athletic men weren't using more sweat glands. The fit women had just as many glands active and pumping; they produced less sweat from each gland. Meanwhile, the unfit women, by a wide margin, perspired the least, especially during the strenuous cycling, and became physiologically hotter — their core temperatures rising notably — before they began to sweat at full capacity. These results, the scientists concluded, "revealed a sex difference in the effects of physical training on the sweating response" and, just as important, "a sex difference" in "the control of sweating rate to an increase in exercise intensity." In other words, the women, whether fit or not, were less adept of ridding themselves of body heat by drenching themselves in sweat.

Okay - you keep buying your sports shower gel for men and women separately, and your shampoo etc... I'll settle for sharing. It really isn't something I'm particularly bothered about. However, if you are (and it seems you are), then do you agree that the muscle therapy bubble bath that I posted about, should at least have an alternative muscle therapy product available for women?

It just is what it is. Nothing to get bothered? about lol

You seem more bothered than me, that we aren't even talking about the topic lol

a CIS Woman is not the same as Trans Woman

.

Sharing? Like I said before for every 1 thing made for men women have 10-20

Options and an open competitive market are a good thing.

If I go to the Mall there are 3-6 stores for women vs 0-1 for men.

.

Is Muscle Therapy Bubble a UK thing?

Maybe the smell is something that men enjoy more. I have a few things with a black pepper scent to them. Women like the way it smells on me.

.

I suspect Icy Hot and certain other muscle rubs that are not directed at anyone which I use are just fine.

but when you have trans-Women/girls competing in Womens sports with the physicality of men still... gotta start thinking now.

.

The complaint that created this issue, should maybe prompt someone to make products for Trans women instead of going to womens products and complaining about them.

There are plenty of products without the symbol. It's simple consumer choice. But if there is a gap in the market then good for the person that exploits it.

Dunno if it's Uk or not. I like the smell and use it. I see no need for the word 'men' on the packaging. Doesn't stop me though.

I never heard of it in America

But it isn't uncommon for women to use mens products

I remember one lady telling me "Stuff made for me is just alway so much better..." I remember thinking, well it has to be, we only get one or two shots at it, lol

If this is as far as it goes I wouldn't care I never noticed the symbol. But if this minute thing is sooo much of an issue with just using a necessary product then what bigger things marketed towards women are in the crosshairs. Trust it doesn't stop at mundane (please note: non-opressive) symbols on a cardboard box.

Feminist campaigner Julie Bindel told the Mail on Sunday that the move is akin to “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,” she added.

.

The rush to acquiesce to PC crusaders has led to commentators – even some who identify as trans – to argue that the extreme activism is harming, rather than helping, the trans community.

Its a telling source for anything LGBT related. The ideology of a source, like books and black lives, matters.

As for what onlyforaminute said, I was ironically agreeing with "A symbol on a box seems mundane, how does that oppress you and prevent you from living your life?" since people in here seem to be getting a bit riled up by the removal of something so mundane.

Julie Bindel is talking trash. If changing a bit of packaging is akin to 'denying the existence' of women, or 'moving towards the total eliminatin of women's biology' then I doubt that many people would agree with her. This is simple shock jock reporting from the MoS.
