Yeah, this is happening. And of course it’s coming from Proctor & Gamble.
From Yahoo: A leading sanitary product brand has announced its decision to remove a feminine logo from packaging, in order to be more inclusive.
Always, owned by Proctor & Gamble, will remove the feminine Venus symbol – a sign derived from astrological symbols often used to represent females – from its packaging. The symbol is currently used on the packaging of individual sanitary towels, in certain multipacks sold by the brand.
This move is out of consideration for transgender and non-binary people who use the products.
It follows a series of complaints on Twitter from transgender activists. Campaigners Melly Boom and Ben Saunders were among the first to call out the company for having a female symbol on their packaging, according to the Daily Mail. Both individuals have since made their accounts private. (COWARDS!)
In a letter to Saunders, which has since been shared online, Sheryl, a member of the Always team, confirmed the new packaging design will begin to replace the old one from December 2019 onwards, with the newer designs distributed everywhere by February 2020.
However, not everyone is on board with the change, with some others are calling to boycott Always over it. Opponents are arguing that the change is unfair because the “vast majority” of sanitary towel users are women.”

I guess all the feminists who are proud to be women are going to have to remove these in order not to offend anyone:
