Austrailian Feminine Hygiene Company Mocks Transgender Community To Sell Tampons

“Libra” feminine hygiene products of Australia and New Zealand which are a part of SCA Global which  produces and markets personal care products, tissue, packaging, publication papers to more than  100 countries under many different brands has a new commercial that is marheting it’s tampon line by mocking the AU and NZ’s transgender community.

The entire ad is based on the premise that only ‘real’ women get periods, and that if you don’t then you aren’t women at all.  Just awful transphobic rubbish, and they should be called out for making it and airing it.
