I’ve heard it all now

The drag queens are upset, so upset they are going to boycott Libra tampons….oh wait!

Agender NZ president Cherise Witehira, said many in the transgender community were outraged at the ads which were “blatantly transphobic”.

“It’s extremely offensive because it’s pretty much saying the only way you can be a woman is to get your period.

“That’s where a lot of the anger in the community is coming from – it’s saying you are not a woman unless you can get your period.

Uhmmm…pretty much…but “transphobic”? …oh  I suppose people might be a little bit afraid, what with all those hormones raging and all.

Many vented on the company’s Libra Facebook page yesterday, saying they were boycotting the product.

Bex Alphabet said: “I don’t think I’ve been so disgusted or offended by a tampon advert before (and let’s face it, most of them are terrible). Shame on you Libra. Not only is this a terrible, cruel reminder to people who might struggle with their gender, but also an insult to all women – how dare you imply we are that competitive and spiteful over a godamn period? So glad I don’t buy your products.”

Competitive? Spiteful? over a period? Probably not, but everything else probably…loving the boycott of tampons by transgenders though…genuis.
