Tampax Boycott Starts to Trend on Twitter - But Why?
Tampax is having fun online and to be honest, we are all here for it. They have earned the rile of, in particular, white CIS gender straight conservative males. Oh dear.
This tweet has BLOWN up. Check out the number of likes on this.
It plays off a very huge meme on Twitter - "You're in their DMs...." Props to their social media team. This is edgy and fun and current. And somehow they avoid the ire of advertising on Elon Musk's Twitter. But maybe they can help push Elon to the left?
TERFs have started to dig into Tampax and it makes us love Tampax more
\u201cthis whole #BoycottTampax thing is just terfs finding some tiny thing to boycott a company that supports trans people. 2 days after a mass shooting of LGBT people loooooool hell is hot for terfs\u201d— Hot TERF takes (@Hot TERF takes) 1669138869
Everyone smart on Twitter has figured out what's making this trend - bigots.
\u201cHas anyone else noticed that the people screaming #BoycottTampax aren\u2019t really upset about the joke? They\u2019re actually a bunch of transphobic bigots attacking a company that showed support for a group of people they like to be cruel to. To the weak minded, ignorant bullies\ud83d\udd95\ud83c\udffd\ud83d\udd95\ud83c\udffd\u201d— ChicanaVegan\u24cb\ud83c\udf31\ud83c\udf3b (@ChicanaVegan\u24cb\ud83c\udf31\ud83c\udf3b) 1669136716
The queers will win this trend for the good of all mankind, don't worry
\u201cCan't believe #BoycottTampax is trending.\n\nThis shit is funny. We need to destigmatize female sexuality, periods, and period sex. Tampons go in vaginas. Chill out.\n\n#Tampax\u201d— \ud83c\udff3\ufe0f\u200d\ud83c\udf08\ud83c\udff3\ufe0f\u200d\u26a7\ufe0f\ud83c\udff4\udb40\udc67\udb40\udc62\udb40\udc77\udb40\udc6c\udb40\udc73\udb40\udc7f (@\ud83c\udff3\ufe0f\u200d\ud83c\udf08\ud83c\udff3\ufe0f\u200d\u26a7\ufe0f\ud83c\udff4\udb40\udc67\udb40\udc62\udb40\udc77\udb40\udc6c\udb40\udc73\udb40\udc7f) 1669135994
The True LGBTQ+ Community is Joining Arms with Feminists Around the World
\u201cFed up with the #BoycottTampax comments. They sponsor a trans woman because she was once asked in a bathroom if she had a tampon & realised to be an awesome part of the community of women she should carry tampons for other women - just like I - a menopausal woman- do.\u201d— Fiona \ud83c\udde8\ud83c\udde6\ud83c\udff4\udb40\udc67\udb40\udc62\udb40\udc73\udb40\udc63\udb40\udc74\udb40\udc7f\ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\udde6 (@Fiona \ud83c\udde8\ud83c\udde6\ud83c\udff4\udb40\udc67\udb40\udc62\udb40\udc73\udb40\udc63\udb40\udc74\udb40\udc7f\ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\udde6) 1669148538
What did you think of the Tampax campaigns? Should we be going all in on our support for a brand that is aligning their marketing dollars with our values?
