'Wait until JK Rowling hears about this!': Shoppers ridicule 'woke' Superdrug

word woman ‘is not inclusive enough’

  • Customers slammed the £3.99 Luna brand for saying 'people who menstruate'
  • One Tweeter said online that it would make a great present for her father
  • Others criticised Superdrug for 'playing games' with gender identity on labels




full details in link below

I really don't get why it's so hard to understand that trans men sometimes still menstruate, and do not wish to be identified as women.

If they have transitioned they won’t be menstruating so this is pointless, if they have to use female products while transitioning so be it, they won’t be female forever, I don’t get why some men get so annoyed about an issue that affects women born as women

Its not that simple. Just because you identify as a man doesn't necessary mean that you want to have the operation to change sex.
You can have the gender of a male and still menstruate.

Probably because they're the consumer making the purchase

i think it's inappropriate for men to comment on this particular issue as it is not something that affects them.

Also I’m pretty sure, if you asked pre-op trans women, I’d imagine writing on the back of a box would be the last thing on their minds

Does ‘people who menstruate’ not cover all basis? What’s wrong with inclusivity?

I can’t help but find it funny that a large chunk of the women offended by something like this, would probably also be the type of people offended by ‘fathers day’ because it doesn’t include single mothers

I'm a bit torn by this......"for people who mensutruate" is fine as far as I'm concerned but in all honesty why does it need any kind of descriptor like that on it? Its a sanitary product and only useful for one thing.

I got a whole load of pads in with several boxes of odds i bought at an auction and i used them for packing parcels as they were good for fragile items.

Someone left me neutral feedback with the comment "sanitary pads should not be used as void fill"
