‘A transgender man has claimed that using ‘pretty and pink’ sanitary products causes him ‘heightened dysphoria’.
Kenny Ethan Jones, 25, a model and activist from London, has revealed that menstruating as a man has made him feel ‘isolated’ as ‘everything about periods is tailored to girls’.
He claimed in an interview with NBC News that his gender dysphoria already cases him psychological pain and shopping in ‘women’s health’ sections in stores for products targeted towards women, only heightens his mental anguish.
It comes after the decision from sanitary towel-maker Always, last October, to to remove the ‘Venus’ symbol, the female sexual identity mark, from sanitary towel wrapping.
Jones originally came out to his mother at the age of 11 before starting to take testosterone at 18. A double mastectomy followed a year later although the activist hasn’t had bottom half surgery.’
