There is little doubt that we live in strange times, where a sizable portion of society will swear to you that a person who menstruates is not necessarily a woman — this being the same crowd that swears by science when it comes to the climate change hoax.

Procter & Gamble, which produces the Always brand of feminine hygiene products, has reportedly decided to remove the feminine Venus symbol from the product line to be more “inclusive” to transgender and non-binary customers, according to The Independent.

Transgender customers are men who believe they are women, or vice versa, women who claim that they are men. Non-binary people may identify as having two or more genders or having no gender at all. Or floating between genders. Either way, biology says that a man born as a man remains a man, regardless of cosmetic alterations, as does a woman.

But in the secular progressive world that rises above God and biology, a “man” can have a period.

“For over 35 years Always has championed girls and women, and we will continue to do so,” Proctor & Gamble said in a statement, according to The Independent. “We’re also committed to diversity & inclusion and are on a continual journey to understand the needs of all of our consumers.”

The company said it realizes not everyone who uses feminine hygiene products see themselves as a woman.

The release said, “We’re also committed to diversity and inclusion, and after hearing from many people across genders and age groups, we realized that not everyone who has a period and needs to use a pad identifies as female.”

The Venus symbol will be removed from packaging beginning in December, with full distribution expected by February 2020, the British paper reported.

The move was met with protest by some women, leading to calls for a boycott of the Always brand.

“Women are quite literally being erased from sanitary products now,” tweeted social media user Vicki Lamb. “Is there anywhere we are allowed to be visible!?”

The UK transgender advocacy group Trans Actual praised Procter & Gamble while dissing women like Lamb who may disagree — more intolerance from the left.

“Well done to @Always for making sure your packaging is inclusive,” read a tweet from the group. “We’ve read the Daily Mail article about it and we’re quite frankly worried for the women whose sense of self is so fragile that the removal of a symbol from a packet of sanitary towels makes them feel ‘erased.'”

Here’s a sampling of more reactions from Twitter that suggest those clinging to sanity in a world gone mad aren’t going down quietly:
