Tampon Ad Called 'Transphobic'



This New Zealand commercial is under attack for being "Transphobic".  I guess it offends transvestites that they can't have a period.  And that they are not REAL women.

On a side note - I can tell who is the real woman in this ad. I wonder if any other men can figure it out? Hmmmmm. Could sex actually be biological and not a social construct?

Update:  Libra issued an apology over this ad which implied that men that dress up like women are not real women.
