eva mace started this petition to 'feminine' hygiene product brands. and

in most UK supermarkets, and most of the products lining the shelves- we see “feminine hygiene products.” however, it is NOT only females who menstruate. it’s exclusive to say that only females menstruate. trans men, non-binary people, and in fact people of any gender can menstruate, and many do. 

for those suffering with dysphoria, having to menstruate is difficult enough alone, without then having to purchase ‘feminine’ hygiene products. not being a female and menstruating is equally as valid as being a female and menstruating. therefore, there is no requirement for these products to be called feminine.

by making this small change, it becomes  instantly more inclusive, and a feeling of security for those purchasing the products. menstruating is NOT a choice, for women, neither is it a choice for those choosing to identify otherwise on the gender spectrum. menstruating is no less valid, however you choose to identify. therefore, there is no reason to exclusively call these products ‘feminine’

by signing this petition, we are one step closer to stopping the common misconception that only women menstruate. it’s an incredibly difficult week for anyone, but for those with dysphoria it can be more so damaging to their mental health. 

for more information, please research my it’s not only women that menstruate, and why it’s important to erase that from society.
