I kind of get you, but you're taking this a little too personally. Products wouldn't sell as well if they didn't do this... most biological females who buy or use these products identify as women. Most. That's the majority of the customer base for the product. Feminine packaging and referring to the customer as a woman makes sense. The majority of the people who buy it are buying as women or for women. It's not like they're saying "not for vagina beholding persons who identify as men". It's biologically correct for most intended consumers... that's as close as they can get. They have no real obligation to put anything on the box, but they do because it helps it sell.
That's like getting mad over boxer shorts having men on the packet, being labelled "men's boxer shorts" and being in the men's part of the store.
None of these products say "not for ____" or "___ only". They're just tailored toward the majority of buyers. Does anyone stop you from buying them? no, because it's perfectly normal for you to. I personally couldn't give two shits about what a company calls their product, or who they say it's for. If it's affordable and I want it, I'll buy it. Fuck who it's "for", I'm buying it for me.
You've made some good points mate!! I guess I do get a bit defensive about stuff like this. It's just a really sensitive subject for me u___u But yeah, I know what you mean. The companies would be able to broaden their demographic and make even more money though if they included everyone. It's not that hard to use gender-neutral pronouns and such, yeah??
It just makes certain people uncomfortable. Especially when they have to go out and buy these products with people watching them and thinking they're a certain gender that they're not. Unfortunately society has trained most people to think of anyone who isn't cis and hetero as different in a bad way. I'm not totally against the use of female pronouns in certain commercials and whatever, I just think those companies would be able to get more people to buy their products if they used correct pronouns for everybody (that may be difficult though). It would be so much easier for certain people to buy certain products without feeling ashamed or depressed.
The world, it swims in ignorance. Society is so ignorant these days I wanna rip my fucking hair out, I swear to God everyone has the brain of 3 year olds. It doesn't matter what aspect of society it is, people just tend to ignore it or oppose it for no real reason.
Well, kind of yeah. People who were born female and therefore have female anatomy don't always identify as female. Trans men, non-binary, genderfluid, people etc. can still get their periods if they were assigned the female sex at birth and have not undergone any surgeries or taken any medication or whatever to change their inner anatomy c:
Like me for example, I was born female, but I'm genderfluid and most of the time I prefer to go by male or gender-neutral pronouns uvu I still bleed every month and there's no way for me to stop that (right now at least) but I don't call myself a woman.
You're not a dick mate!! It's good and totally okay to ask questions about things you don't understand nwn
It's easy to call a certain demographic by certain pronouns but it hurts so many fucking people and all those companies are incredibly oblivious to that fact. They don't realize it would also be incredibly easy to just refer to their consumers as everyone. Periods suck, having to buy expensive hygiene shit sucks, so don't make your customers hate you because you're an ignorant piece of shit.
SAME DUDE FUCKK SOME PEOPLE ARE FUCKING UNAWARE OF THE FACT THAT THERE IS MORE THAN TWO GENDERS. HOLY FUCKING SHIT. IT'S 2015 I MEAN REALLY IF YOU STILL THINK THERE'S ONLY TWO GENDERS AND TWO SEXUALITIES AND SHIT YOU NEEDA GET YOUR FUCKING ACT TOGETHER.
