UNITED KINGDOM, October 21, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) - A major manufacturer of sanitary napkins has knuckled under pressure brought about by "transgender" women who claim to be men and has removed the "Venus" symbol from their product packaging.

The move by Procter & Gamble (P&G), which produces Always sanitary napkins, was reportedly triggered by a tweet from a trans activist last July, saying, "Could someone from Always tell me why it is imperative to have the female symbol on their sanitary products?"

"There are non-binary and trans folks who still need to use your products too you know!" she added.

The total elimination of women's biology

Women who are not insisting that people call them men have been enraged by the announced move and have said they will boycott the P&G product.

"Removing the female symbol from sanitary towel packaging is basically denying the existence of women," feminist Julie Bindel told The Daily Mail.

"We're now moving towards the total elimination of women's biology. The women's symbol has been used by feminists for decades," said Bindel. "This is pure cowardice and virtue signalling from these big corporate brands who are capitulating to the trans agenda."

"The venus sign in biology is used to represent the female sex (you know, the ONLY people who will ever need these products). It does not represent gender identity," tweeted women's rights activist Maya Forstater.

Not only "women", and "female" but now also ♀️ are dirty words. First @upfieldglobal @flora now @pguk @Always . Why are corporates so willing to alienate their core demographic at the drop of a hat because a few people tell them that recognising female biology is 'exclusionary'.

"It's not about ‘feelings' it's about biology & biological women's rights. It's cheating and it's misogyny," said Lizzi Watson, adding in another tweet, "Biological women should just boycott the brand, then they might realise real women have feelings too, which they have somehow ignored."

Whenever I see comments like the ones made by "R.M." I always think: What about the rights of Women, born female, to compete on equal terms?
It is a difficult subject....

Lizzi@lizzi_watson

It's not about "feelings" it's about biology & biological women's rights. It's cheating and it's misogyny.

"For over 35 years, Always has championed girls and women, and we will continue to do so," a P&G spokesman told The Daily Mail.

"We're also committed to diversity and inclusion, and we realise that not everyone who has a period and needs to use a pad identifies as female," he continued. "That is why we wanted to ensure that anyone who needs to use a period product feels comfortable in doing so with Always."

P&G's announcement about its decision to remove the "Venus" symbol from Always's packaging comes less than two weeks after TV networks in the U.S. sparked controversy by airing an underwear commercial titled "MENstruation," portraying a surreal world where men and boys menstruate.
