Did you hear the news?
After complaints from LGBTQ groups that their Always line of feminine products weren’t “inclusive” enough, Proctor and Gamble has decided to phase out the use of the female symbol on their packaging … because not everyone who goes through their, ahem, monthly cycle is a woman or something.
Fox News reports:
“For over 35 years Always has championed girls and women, and we will continue to do so,” the company said in a statement Tuesday, according to The Independent. “We’re also committed to diversity & inclusion and are on a continual journey to understand the needs of all of our consumers.”
Company officials added that they realize not everyone who needs feminine hygiene products “identif[ies] as female.” Procter & Gamble did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News.
The decision was lauded by trans activists but faced criticism online.
“Women are quite literally being erased from sanitary products now. Is there anywhere we are allowed to be visible!?” one woman wrote on Twitter, according to The Independent.
Progressive trans activists applauded the move, of course. But in a show of a complete lack of self awareness, they actually
mansplained accused women who complained about the removal of the symbol of fragility, which I let them know was a bit of a strange comment for them to to make, all things considered:
Kinda strange to insinuate there is fragility and insecurity behind female complaints about the removal of the female symbol considering it was trans "men" who got their panties in a wad over a packaging symbol in the first place. Bless your heart. https://t.co/UCgUtYkF6A

In any event, the Babylon Bee had an alternative suggestion earlier this week for P&G that might actually work better than the removal of the symbol:
CINCINNATI, OH—Always is appealing to the company’s male customers with its new “Always Macho” series of menstrual products.
The pads and tampons’ packaging will feature pictures of monster trucks crushing each other, AR-15s, and John Cena dropkicking people.
“We want to welcome all people who menstruate, whether you are a cisgender woman, a transgender man, or a dude who really likes monster trucks,” said a Procter & Gamble representative.
Here’s what “Always Macho” packaging looks like:

I think it’s a contender! What do you think?
