because 'not everyone who has a
period identifies as female'

Procter & Gamble’s Always feminine hygiene brand announced it is removing feminine symbols from its packaging in the name of inclusivity. “For over 35 years Always has championed girls and women, and we will continue to do so,” the company said in a statement to The Independent. “We’re also committed to diversity and inclusion, and after hearing from many people across genders and age groups, we realized that not everyone who has a period and needs to use a pad identifies as female.” The decision comes after transgender activists criticized the company for including the feminine Venus symbol on its packaging.

Comments:

Unabashed after losing a pile of money and permanently alienating many of its customers after the Gillette "toxic masculinity" fumble, P&G now flips the bird to women. Can company leadership possibly be this stupid, or is this a move by short-sellers or corporate raiders to erode stock value? Probably merits investigation either way.

Biological males can identify any way they want, but that does not mean they can have periods. They cannot. Any biological male who thinks he is having periods should have his head examined. Is their a brain in there? Possibly not.

Beam me up, Scotty. I have heard everything. A woman gets a crew cut and a plaid shirt and calls herself a guy. Then gets upset when a company that sells sanitary products outwardly caters to females---which she is.

I'm happy all that is over for me. I majored in biology. No matter how much you wish, you HAVE to have a uterus and ovaries to have a menstrual period. No amount of wishing or hormones will make it any different. No uterus, no period.

OMG! I am definitely OLD! I never thought I would live to see the day something this crazy would be accepted as "Normal".A company accepts that the man who has a period is offended by the packaging on the product that he/she needs! Can't wait to see how they handle Tampons!

If you're having a period, then you're a woman. If you think otherwise, then you're also mentally ill.

If you are not a female what does 'have a period' even mean? Are we talking bleeding hemorrhoids here? A gaping wound? You need either Preparation H or some sutures. Didn't Kotex get started when army nurses discovered that battle dressings worked great for menstrual flow?

"...after hearing from many people across genders and age groups, we realized that not everyone who has a period and needs to use a pad identifies as female.” The need for the product is determined by anatomy and age. How one "identifies" is irrelevant. Men can't "will" themselves to shed a the lining of their non-existent uterus any more than women can will themselves not to shed the lining of a uterus with which they were born. Corporate America, the media, and a long line of politically correct exploiters are losing their collective minds.

Just to clear up a totally understandable misconception some of the above posters have: P & G are addressing the .02% of feminine-protection wearers that were born as women but now think that wearing a butch haircut and flannel shirts allows them to fantasize that they are men with periods and are put off by the pink or purple box their pads come in. Kid you not.

The hole in the ozone layer has shrunk to its smallest size since scientists began monitoring it in 1982 because of unusual weather patterns in the upper atmosphere over Antarctica, according to NASA. The hole fluctuates in size annually and is usually largest during the coldest months in the southern hemisphere, from late September to early October. The latest observations from space have shown the hole now covers less than 3.9million square miles–a record low and almost half as small as it was during its peak at 6.3million on September 8 only six weeks ago.

New marijuana breathalyzer tests that are billion times more sensitive than one for blood alcohol levels, has been dubbed a 'game-changer' by researchers. Some law enforcement agencies across the country have been reluctant to have marijuana legalized in their states, worried relaxed rules for the drug could lead to an explosion of impaired drivers on the road. But now cops could loosen up to the idea, thanks to devices from Hound Labs and Sanntek that can tell how recently someone has consumed THC, a by-product of marijuana, and in turn detecting whether they're likely to be high.

On Sunday, Twitter users lost their collective minds when they learned that “Pierre Delecto” wasn’t a bot or a random Romney superfan,
