First Tampon For Transgender Women To Hit Shelves Next Month




A small southern California company which produces “earth-friendly” feminine hygiene products has released the first tampon for post-op transgender women. The Sappho-Luxe company has released a product dubbed “Fem-Flo” earlier this week amid media attention surrounding Caitlin Jenner’s coming out as a trans-woman. Company founder, Cheryl Goldsmith, said about the product’s timing, “It certainly was a interesting coincidence, but not intentional. The additional exposure does not hurt, and regardless of the timing, we feel as if our product will be well received amongst the trans community. We are hoping to bring each trans-woman closer to the full female experience and diminish body dysmorphia triggers altogether.”

The product comes in 3 designs. “Fem-Flo Petite” is for the trans-woman who is still working to achieve maximum dilation, yet still wants to produce menses. “Fem-Flo Intermediate” provides dilation and an average amount of menstruation. And last, but not least, the “Fem-Flo Lush” for the trans-woman who wishes to enjoy “heavy” menstruation.




“Our product is designed to give post-op trans-gender women the full-spectrum experience of menstruation. You don’t have to be deprived of the beautiful and womanly occurrence of menstruation merely because you were born without uterus. The Fem-Flo’s cotton core contains a small, vegetable-based capsule which upon reaching body temperature releases the “menses” contained within. It also aids in keeping the post-op canal conditioned and dilated after surgery and beyond.”

Fem-Flo tampons will come in boxes of 25 and cost around $19.99 per box. Sappho-Luxe will begin shipping their product to major grocery stores nationwide next month.

  1. lol the lengths people will go through to embrace their delusions.

      uh EXCUSE me?? Delusions? What do you mean by that exactly? Because as far as i can see it thats a very transphobic comment.

      • She’s just making a coment, calm your tits. Also how is purposely creating an inconvenience just to feel more feminine not feeding a dilusion. If transgendered people really associated themselves with their gender, they wouldn’t need products like these to convince themselves that they’re the opposite sex.

        • “If transgendered people really associated themselves with their gender, they wouldn’t need products like these to convince themselves that they’re the opposite sex.”

          I’m transgender, and I concur. I think this is ridiculous. No woman wants “mensus”.

          • I absolutely agree. No woman wants to bleed like a stuck pig and cry from cramps every month. Maybe they need to add some type of internal spike so they get the full pain effect of having a menses.I berry it would be the last time they used it ever. I have nothing against transferred folk, but This borders ridiculous. And if my gender is based on whether I bleed every month, somewhat offensive. Got news for ya , my shit got yanked 15 years ago. Don’t see me crying over the loss of my uterus sloughing off in a painful monthly ritual of trying to get through the day without everyone knowing I’m not pregnant.

          • This is just stupid smh

          Alright now say that hunty from a woman born female

      • Yes, delusions. Transgenderism is a serious mental illness similar to Body Dysmorphic Disorder. These people need treatment not acceptance.

        • I admire your sanity. I cannot believe that I am actually admiring someone for being sane (for meeting the minimum standard), but sanity is becoming rare nowadays.

        • Thank you for stating the truth. It makes me feel good that at least some people out there have a clear mind on their shoulders that can see what is really going on.

        • And your EXACT clinical experience is _____________?

          THANK YOU for your tolerance, bigot!!!

          • That was not a bigoted statement(idiot) nor was it intolerant in any way, form or shape. It’s funny when LGBT bigots accused of bigotry while being bigots themselves, Just because you don’t like it, and get violent, doesn’t mean others are as bad as you are… I also like it how you don’t even question yourself(scientists often do) and stop to think how in the world the gender stereotypes that the LGBT claims to be false and man made can be used by gender dysphoriacs to determine if a child is born in the “wrong” body or not and then damage that child mentally with their own confusions. Isn’t it funny how you can’t remember your own lies anymore? With that said, there is no scientific evidence anywhere, especially not in the medical field of transgenderism, in fact there is overwhelming evidence that it is a mental illness. The stress that “trans” go through is what causes it in most, not stress as result of “trans” and hiding, they just backtrack and believe it “all made sense” and that they felt that way their whole life with little things everyone goes through. Many people find ways to cope with reality, also, its called Gender Dysphoria, not transexuality, which does not exist.

            The APA is subject of much scandal and are not in a position to be making such statements, nor do they have the evidence to support half of what they call “facts”.

            From the Wall Street Journal, (June 12, 2014)

            “You won’t hear it from those championing transgender equality, but controlled and follow-up studies reveal fundamental problems with this movement. When children who reported transgender feelings were tracked without medical or surgical treatment at both Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic, 70%-80% of them spontaneously lost those feelings. Some 25% did have persisting feelings; what differentiates those individuals remains to be discerned.

            It now appears that our long-ago decision was a wise one. A 2011 study at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden produced the most illuminating results yet regarding the transgendered, evidence that should give advocates pause. The long-term study—up to 30 years—followed 324 people who had sex-reassignment surgery. The study revealed that beginning about 10 years after having the surgery, the transgendered began to experience increasing mental difficulties. Most shockingly, their suicide mortality rose almost 20-fold above the comparable nontransgender population. This disturbing result has as yet no explanation but probably reflects the growing sense of isolation reported by the aging transgendered after surgery. The high suicide rate certainly challenges the surgery prescription.’

            At the heart of the problem is confusion over the nature of the transgendered. “Sex change” is biologically impossible. People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.”

            – Dr. McHugh, former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital

            Johns Hopkins was the first to do transgender reassignment surgery. They no longer do it.

            Transgender Truth:

            Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.

            Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically.

            He also reported on a new study showing that the suicide rate among transgendered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non-transgender people. Dr. McHugh further noted studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic of children who had expressed transgender feelings but for whom, over time, 70%-80% “spontaneously lost those feelings.”

            While the Obama administration, Hollywood, and major media such as Time magazine promote transgenderism as normal, said Dr. McHugh, these “policy makers and the media are doing no favors either to the public or the transgendered by treating their confusions as a right in need of defending rather than as a mental disorder that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention.”

            Time magazine, June 9, 2014,

            cover story, The Transgender Tipping Point:

            America’s Next Civil Rights Frontier. (Photo: AP)
            “This intensely felt sense of being transgendered constitutes a mental disorder in two respects. The first is that the idea of sex misalignment is simply mistaken – it does not correspond with physical reality. The second is that it can lead to grim psychological outcomes.”

            The transgendered person’s disorder, said Dr. McHugh, is in the person’s “assumption” that they are different than the physical reality of their body, their maleness or femaleness, as assigned by nature. It is a disorder similar to a “dangerously thin” person suffering anorexia who looks in the mirror and thinks they are “overweight,” said McHugh.

            This assumption, that one’s gender is only in the mind regardless of anatomical reality, has led some transgendered people to push for social acceptance and affirmation of their own subjective “personal truth,” said Dr. McHugh. As a result, some states – California, New Jersey, and Massachusetts – have passed laws barring psychiatrists, “even with parental permission, from striving to restore natural gender feelings to a transgender minor,” he said.

            The pro-transgender advocates do not want to know, said McHugh, that studies show between 70% and 80% of children who express transgender feelings “spontaneously lose those feelings” over time. Also, for those who had sexual reassignment surgery, most said they were “satisfied” with the operation “but their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn’t have the surgery.”

            Pro-transgender activists. The

            Obama administration announced

            in May that Medicare will

            now cover transgender surgical

            procedures. (AP)
            “And so at Hopkins we stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery, since producing a ‘satisfied’ but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs,” said Dr. McHugh.

            The former Johns Hopkins chief of psychiatry also warned against enabling or encouraging certain subgroups of the transgendered, such as young people “susceptible to suggestion from ‘everything is normal’ sex education,” and the schools’ “diversity counselors” who, like “cult leaders,” may “encourage these young people to distance themselves from their families and offer advice on rebutting arguments against having transgender surgery.”

            Dr. McHugh also reported that there are “misguided doctors” who, working with very young children who seem to imitate the opposite sex, will administer “puberty-delaying hormones to render later sex-change surgeries less onerous – even though the drugs stunt the children’s growth and risk causing sterility.”

            Such action comes “close to child abuse,” said Dr. McHugh, given that close to 80% of those kids will “abandon their confusion and grow naturally into adult life if untreated ….”

            “’Sex change’ is biologically impossible,” said McHugh. “People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.”

            Scientifically, there is no such thing as “transgendered”. According to Dr. Norman P. Spack, a pediatric endocrinologist, and the very founder of the transgender program at Boston’s Children’s Hospital, who is in favor of giving children hormone blockers, hormone shots and subjecting them to sex reassignment surgery “as early as possible” (whatever that means to him), “Most specialists believe that transgenderism is a neurological disorder”. So, he says, “We shouldn’t blame sex reassignment surgery for patients’ psychological problems”. We shouldn’t “blame” such surgery for patients’ psychological improvements either. The neurological disorder may be the cause for believing that they were born in the wrong body, but has nothing to do with actually being born in the wrong body or having any other sex or gender than their genetic or their birth sex. Hormone blockers, hormone therapy and sex reassignment surgery are not the proper treatment for any neurological disorder. According to statement issued by the state of California in 2015, “No treating physician has ever determined that sex reassignment surgery is ever medically necessary”.

        • Yeah, you’re right. It’s a mental illness or unhappiness that ends up making a person think they are the opposite gender they were born as. ‘Acceptance’ and gender reassignment surgery is not helpful in any way. Here’s a link that talks all about it. https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/psychiatry-expert-scientifically-there-is-no-such-thing-as-transgender

      • Shut up, transfaggot. Yes, you are delusional. She means you are out of your fucking mind to have your dick cut off and a fake pussy made out of it, that you have to get fake tampons for to have fake periods.

        • The skin actually through metaplasia become normal aka real vagina mucosa.

          • No, I could not call a synthetically butchered penis shaped like a vagina normal.

          • dale perkins // January 26, 2016 at 3:57 pm //

            the body treats a fake vagina like a wound. It must be stuffed with gauze and debrided constantly until it scars over. It’s no different from what happens to you when you get a leg amputated. Really, calling a leg stump a “vagina” is no less insane than calling whatever THAT is on a post-op transsexual a “vagina”.

          “transfaggot” you, my friend, are the scum of this earth. stfu and live your life and we’ll live ours. what if you were being made fun of for being straight? you’d cry like a little bitch. so cut your shit.

      • That is NOT a transphobic comment, it IS a delusion.

      • It’s time to stop tip-toeing around reality. No matter how badly someone wants to be the opposite sex for whatever reason they have for wanting to sex changes are not actually possible.

        • It is possible to change sex. Transsexuals can change their phenotypic and morphologic sex.

          • No, it’s impossible to change sex, you cannot alter your chromosomes, which determine your sex and most of your features. You clearly don’t know what sex is.

          • Please stop using the worn out excuse of DNA. Why not try showing a little tolerance? Thank you

          • You are clearly wrong and I do know what sex is. Sex is NOT defined by chromosomes. There are sometimes normally fertile females who are born with the normal XY chromosome type that is USUALLY seen for normal males.
            There are also males with no Y chromosome and no Y DNA material.

            Sex is a trait like other traits such as height and weight and by definition comprises gonads (normal testes vs ovaries) and phenotypic traits genitalia (normal penis, epididymis, vagina) and secondary somatic traits such as breasts, fat deposition. The surgery changes the genitalia to normal female morphology and function, The hormones change the secondary traits (develop breast glands) and translantation of gonads replaces the testes with varies changing the person’s gonadal sex.

          • @Briana, That is like saying to stop using science to explain things. Do you know how crazy you sound? And what does this have to do with tolerance? Does a doctor hate a patient if the patient tries to convince him that smoking is good for you?

            No, you are wrong, your first paragraph is a complete lie. The gonads are a result of the chromosome configuration, anything that alters that configuration results in things like down syndrome.

            You also don’t replace gonads, you damage the male gonad and make it look somewhat resembling a female one, it’s not actually a female gential to begin with. Hormonal intake is also known to cause damage and further mental instability.

      • stupid. you transgenders are sick sick people

          ohhh, so sorreh to bother ya, m8!! How are we sick? I’m not trying to force YOU to change sex. I’m not forcing your children into it. We’re making the world more accepting.
          sick is KKK and terrorist attacks. get over yourself.

        • Last year I completed my master’s degree in biology at the university of Imperial College London; if you did not know it is the 3rd best university to major in anything scientific within the UK. Due to my nerdiness or passion, I was awarded a distinction in both my bachelor’s and masters. The aforementioned is why I can put my hand on my heart and say that Jessica’s explanation on sex is, in fact, correct.

          I will attach links bellow that will explain more in depth; personally, I recommend reading them because when you’re debating and invalid arguments are made your points are easily dismissable, becoming nothing more than ill-informed and ignorant.

          I don’t pretend to understand transgender issues; however, we all know how it feels to be misunderstood, isolated and judged. So why make other people feel those things? There is nothing wrong with having conflicting views. The world would be boring if all thought the same but it’s how we express those views. We don’t know the people who are reading this, we also don’t know what is going on in their lives so we should always be aware of the language we use because it can, it will and it has caused people to take their lives. And truthful whether you know it or not is unimportant because their blood is on your hands.

          I am not transgender but twin brother (now sister) told be this last night. At first, I wasn’t ok with it and honestly I’m still not. My sister has the right to live her life the way she wants to – it’s her right to – I am neither god or the universe so who am I to tell her she is wrong. The issues I have with it are not hers; they are my own. The same goes for all of you.

          P.s I read this over and before all you haters start tripping I realised that I made a couple grammatical errors but I am way too exhausted to give a shit. I’ve been a sick brother all night by learning about my sister through research.

      • Transphobic. The generic response used to shut down dissent. Well I agree with Tonya and call me transphobic. I really don’t care. Tonya is correct.

      • Diane Fritz // July 17, 2015 at 11:29 am // Reply

        phobic? Are you a moron? Phobic means a medical fear of something. How is Tonya’s comment medically fearful.

      • Yes, delusional. It is delusional for trans people to think that they’re the opposite sex just because they like things that social norms (not scientific fact, mind you) have deemed is inherent to the opposite sex. An MTF (a biological male) does not and will never have any medical need for tampon because they do not menstruate. To think they do, is delusional. That is the truth and the truth is not “transphobic”.

      • you sound like such a faggot

      • Trannysareretarted // May 22, 2016 at 8:17 am // Reply

        Haha faggot got triggered

      • It was VERY TRANS-PHOBIC …. intentionally I am sure. It is ALL a delusion. Anyone who wants to be the opposite sex has some serious mental conditions which should be addressed.

        And it isn’t trans-phobic actually, as that would imply a fear of one who is trans. I don’t think anybody is fearful of a tranny in any way. It’s either a smirk, a recoil, or revolting. So we need to get these terms in check. Otherwise you offend me with all your straight person phobia…..

        It’s trans-smirkish – or
        It’s trans-recoilish – or
        It’s trans – revolting

        Those much better capture true reality. It isn’t fear, it’s either hilarious, strange, or disgusting to people.

    • i dont know what to think of anything anymore

      • You are exactly in the place these progressives want you to be. That is their triumph. Follow your convictions and don’t be swayed by popularism.

    • No ‘delusions’ – these would be for trans women, they’re not delusional but want to experience something which medical science cannot yet give them.

      • Yes, delusions. Just like the delusion an anorexic person suffers where they believe they are fat. You are not the opposite sex just because you break the rules of your gender. Gender and sex are two entirely different things; the former is social, the latter biological. If you want an example of a man who can break gender boundaries without being bats?!t insane about it, look at Boy George or RuPaul. (Boy George does have other issues, but not his attitude about sex and gender.) Both admit they are men. Neither pretend to be women. And the world has not ended.

        With any other delusion we’d be getting these people help. With THIS delusion we encourage them in it. And they are emboldened to act in really poisonous ways toward women because of it. The MTFs threaten to rape us and kill us in a fire if we dare state biological facts or even talk about our own experiences as women. The FTMs in a desperate bid to forget they were women and ingratiate themselves to men become even bigger misogynists than the average guy is. Tired of it.

        • Honestly you’re such a stupid fucking bitch just shut up! Just as people stray from gender confinements, some people also stray from traditional sex confinements. They don’t FEEL COMFORTABLE. You l’m sure have felt uncomfortable w situations before. Trans people can now eliminate that discomfort. The difference between an anorexic and a trans person is that trans people aren’t going through unhealthy risks in order to achieve their ideal image.

          • Actually, death statistics for Anorexia hovers around 4.0%. The suicide attempt rate for post operative transgendered people is around 40.00%. Psychological hospitalizations runs around 30.0% percent for transgendered people, substance misuse runs about 33.0% for transgendered people.

          • This probably has to do with the pressure and hatred from people who oppose trans people. Anorexics don’t live in fear of people around them, intolerance and hatred. Think about why trans people are dying. It’s not because of their identity its because of how people treat them.

          • I think people are made to feel uncomfortable with their bodies because we dictate gender roles by sex. If you’re constantly told your personality or your tastes are wrong for your sex you might start to feel wrong for your sex.

          • Actually, trans people are sick in the head. Its not too far of that they would have a number of psychological problems to accompany their mental problems. There is no evidence to support any statements made by the APA who are bigoted and are the subject of much, MUCH scandal regarding their biased and unsupported practices on matters they are not even equipped to handle. The truth is, there is no such thing as a true transexual, people are just mentally sick, and when someone is sick you help them, not encourage their fantasy, thsi is HARMFUL.

            The APA is subject of much scandal and are not in a position to be making such statements, nor do they have the evidence to support half of what they call “facts”.

          • Keegan Simons // July 8, 2015 at 10:13 pm //

            I’d like to see the comparison between suicide rates for trans people who get reassignment surgery, and people with gender dysphoria that never have it. I’d be willing to bet they’re pretty similar. Problem is, anyone who actually admits to it is probably seeking and gets treatment. Which skews all the results in favor of “reassignment therapy is a mistake” instead of “gender dysphoria is a problem we don’t know how to fix”. Doesn’t help that people are bigots.

            Regardless of that, I’d like to point out that yes, it is an undisputed fact that CHILDREN that present with gender dysphoria typically lose those feelings as they mature. However, from adolescence and beyond, people that present typically do NOT lose those feelings.

            As I also said in another comment, I disagree with a lot of aspects of transgenderism, despite being trans myself. I’m not going to repeat it here, so read below if you’re interested in actually seeing what a trans who is critical of transgenderism has to say about it.

            Vera, why is it so hard to have an adult conversation around you people without all the gratuitous name-calling and teenage boy retorts. Perhaps because mentally speaking, that’s what you are? “you’re such a stupid fucking bitch just shut up!” What an excellent well thought out rebuttal.

            Anyway, no one gives a shit if you want to mutilate yourself to the tune of thousands of dollars and be on drugs for the rest of your life. Just stop trying to pass yourselves off as something you are not and eroding women’s hard won rights.

            And about this article, the joke’s on you because this is probably a spoof. See what a good ally I am?

          • @Vera, Trans psychological instability is the cause of the mental disease, not the result you misogynistic bigot. You are SICK if you think women are nothing but a cutoff genitalia. I can’t believe you hate women this much.

            So your response to someone who disagrees with your point of view is to cuss at them and call them a bitch? Wow, I am impressed at the logic of your argument. Surgery to alter one’s genitalia is not “unhealthy” or risky? Well then… I suppose it’s just fine then for me to have surgery to change my appearance to match my self-identity as a cat? I killed the neighbor’s rabbit, pissed on his tires and shit in his flower beds, and now I’m going to go sleep for 16 hours. Because I feel like a cat, and it’s my right to stray from traditional species assignments, and if you think I’m mentally ill… then you are just being a bigot.

        • I see this product has even brought out the TERF’s Dana you need to stop reading Sheila Jeffries rubbish she is no longer relevant, unless you like the opinions of bigots which you obviously do, your statement is ridiculous and redundant. You must feel as powerful as these other Transphobic morons that keep talking to their imaginary friend and shooting people because it’s their right to bare arms. So join up with these irrelevant bigots, who don’t know anything about Trans people. Enjoy your bitter twisted lives where you want to beat up on one of the most marginalized groups in society, you must feel very strong and powerful you lot, but you are not, because you left your compassion at home.

          If they were so sure of their delusion, their crowd wouldn’t have pressured Dr’s and politicians into banning conversion therapy for those who had these types of delusions and were still sane enough to want to get rid of them.

          • You’re comparing apples and oranges. Conversion therapy is used to attempt to “convert” people who are same-sexed attracted and is used mostly against hapless kids who have the misfortune of having Xtian families. Maybe some trans get swept up but that is not the primary target.

      • Not delusional? Right, perfectly normal far a man to want to wear a fake tampon. What’s next afake baby or a fake abortion?

    what’s the point? trans women don’t have periods. why not just use regular tampons?

    • well if you actually read the article you would know that it releases a non-toxic “blood-like” substance, and also helps to maintain dilation after transgender surgery.

    • Tampons can cause toxic shock syndrome. I would worry that they would also cause that. I understand they have the lubricant but women with a period have built in lubricant and the cotton obsorbs it. I worry this product is a health risk and Trans women will learn about tss the hard way.

        Tss isn’t a problem with tampons these days. And if you need a fake tampon to keep your fake vag open then maybe your body is trying to tell you something. Besides what real woman wants to have a ” menses “. I know pretty much everyone born a woman is trying to get rid of theirs permanently. What’s next something that simulates menopause? Why bother with this crap in the first place? Only a true woman can experience these things. This tampon isn’t going to do anything but annoy the crap out of everyone and ruin some transgenders underwear.

        • NAILED IT, Rachel!! This is the dumbest thing I have seen yet. NO real woman WANTS a monthly cycle, and you wanna-be-women need even more help for FAKING IT.

          Uh, YES, TSS IS still a problem!!!
          TSS is still dangerous, though some product changes and having warning labels and instructions on each box of tampons has helped reduce the risk.

          But even men can get TSS – no tampons or periods required. Menstruation is just literally an easy entry point into the body for bacteria to enter that the body could otherwise fight off.

          Recently there was a young model who developed TSS and was found close to death, having suffered a massive heart attack… She lost her leg in the fight to save her life. The first thing they asked at hospital was if she was using a tampon and they tested immediately for TSS, which was the problem. Nearly killed her.

          So, even though the huge campaign for careful use of tampons has helped, TSS can still be an issue.

        • With the proper techniques, a real vaginal organ can be constructed since the tissue adapts to the environment and undergoes metaplasia.

          • No, that’s wrong… it’s not a “real” vagina just like making a hole on your arm is not an anus… people need to get educated on gender dysphoria, good grief so many stupid comments. Mostly scary stupid comments about pseudoscience, and the other half is progay bigots judging everyone else as bigoted.

          • If the proper technique it ASOLUTELY becomes a vagina as normal as that of a normal woman aftern a hysterectomy. You do not understand metaplasia or the science.

          • No, NEOVAGINAS are absolutely NOT vaginas, and do not “become vaginas” – ever! Vaginas are contracting and expanding muscular organs that lead to the cervix. They are not just a dead end tube of inverted penile skin! Vaginas maintain their acidic pH to stay clean and balanced (unlike trans vaginas that are often full of fecal bacteria), they do not heal up if not dilated constantly (because they are not scar tissue). Vaginas are actually part of the reproductive system, they are not just meant for males to use as a masturbator sleeve.

          • The proper technique absolutely results in a normal vagina no different from a normal woman’s after a hysterectomy. Even the biopsies show this. ANd the PH levels are normal as is the production of normal vaginal transudate and glycogen.

            I recently found what TERF meant and was surprised at the lies that they tell about transsexual women. Since the Y chromosome has fallen out of favor as a marker of femaleness due to the finding of born females with a Y chromosome, the neovagina has become a way of attacking transgender women. This is so silly and errant since transsexual womens neovaginas can be the same as the vagina of normal women with a hysterectomy or prolapse.
            Let’s examine the layers-the 1) epithelium and 2) lamina propria and 3) muscularis. The epithelium and lamina comprise the vaginal mucosa.
            Split thick skin grafting can become normal vaginal mucosa and penile skin can also if thinned enough.

            (note something FISHY about the TERF nonsense when you find Doderlein Bacilli present in neovagina of transsexual proving it is not penile skin anymore).

            http://www.giog.it/materiale_cic/703_XXXV_5/6073_vaginal/article.htm

            We have seen that skin can become normal vaginalmucos (vaginal layers 1 and 2).

            The 3rd vaginal layer is the so called muscularis which is
            the pubocervical fascia (PCF) anteriorly and the rectovaginal (RVS) septum posteriorly. The anterior (PCF) layer also is called the rectovesical ligament (RVL) for women AND men. It has the same composition for men and women. With an anterior vaginal prolapse, the mucosa needs to get re-attached to the isolated PCF/RVL. Transwomen, phenotypic women with CAIS (and men) just don’t have the PCV/RVL attached to mucosa. But it is there.

            http://books.google.com/books?id=FSdjNHrF0fgC&pg=PA6&lpg=PA6&dq=vesicopelvic+ligament&source=bl&ots=Ljc1d5tsHL&sig=tYy6ln9JoMPV2kQgRlMJiThE1mg&hl=en&sa=X&ei=fLVaT8eiCqTi0QHXpJjsDA&ved=0CDwQ6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=vesicopelvic%20ligament&f=false

            Likewise, the posterior vaginal muscularis is called the rectovaginal septum.

            http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8293598

            Transwomen DO have this attached to their neovagina and it does have the same composition even in millimeters (3-6) as do normal women.

            That is incredibly offensive, not to mention scientifically incorrect, your links show no evidence, only opinions. Sorry but painting your skin black does not make you black. “Look a like” is not genuine, and not even close. I can’t believe that the bar has sunk so low that I have to explain this to an adult.

          • No no no no seriously, the fact that you claim these articles comfirm your opinion is worrisome, it says nowhere in them what you are stating. If you have to destroy your genitalia to make it look somewhat like a female one then that is the farthest thing from natural.

You’re obviously a massively ignorant ass, who believes that the world revolves around you and anyone who doesn’t conform to what you believe as normal are ‘retards’. I’m transgender female to male, so the opposite, I’m not delusional, I know the truth, however I would like to be as male as physically possible, these trans women would like to also. Agreed, it’s not for everyone, but where are we to judge. Get on with your own lives rather than being a bitter and nasty person over someone else’s lives. You people physically sicken me, for how revolting you can treat people different to you.

  11. Yes, if you had read the article and / or had even an inkling of understanding about the procedures trans women undergo you would see that the product is for their post-operative health and healing and not just a luxury item for their mental health. Trans women who have surgery who need to dialate often feel uncomfortable doing so in public, even though they have to do it several times a day, because of the medical objects that they need to use to dilate. But if they had something like this, something that looked a little more like an item that is used by all women, then it would help alleviate some of their discomfort. they need to use a lubricant to dilate anyways so obviously who cares if its dyed red or not

Especially those who need a more comfortable way to dilate. Y’all can think negative about it but it could potentially make transgender women and or women who are not able to have periods regularly or at all feel more comfortable with themselves.

    • ScartletQ // July 8, 2015 at 1:02 am // Reply

      Great point! People are looking at periods as something disgusting. Rather than appreiciating the gift. However for cisgender people to understand what it means to a trans female, they would need to stop being hard headed abd thinking that this world or life only belongs to them. They would need to understand transgenderism is not a illness or dysphoria. So i am post op intersexed and am unable to menstrate, I had no choice in being intersexed, and not being able to experience that part of my woman left me feeling out. For those that have no idea what intersexed it

      • We are all victims.

      • You are not inter-sexed! Stop appropriating other people’s identities and experiences. And stop calling people “cis”. It is hate-speech.

      • A Gift? yes before contraception women would call their period a gift because it meant they were not pregnant.

        Just curious, as a someone who has never menstruated how can you disagree with those who have or believe this product can give you a genuine experience. Periods are a very inconvenient part of being a woman of childbearing age.

  15. I HATE these times.

  16. Why are Cis-gender people always so violent and filled with so much hate. If this product does not concern, shut your month or refrain from texting. The sad part is that you openly display your low level of intelligence. You will never understand. And you do not have to but being so violent and hateful? what are you so afraid of and what concern is it to you?

  17. Aw cute. Look! Pretend “menses” for the pretend women with a pretend vagina living in a pretend world where men can become women. Let’s all pretend together! In the meantime I’ll do my best to pretend this is all okay.

      Couldn’t agree more. Newsflash: You can remove or add ANY body parts you like. You can remove or add ANY combination of hormones you like. Hell, you can do anything/everything known to man and/or medical science you like. However, what you CANNOT do is change the “essence” of a person. That “special something” inside a person that makes them who they are. Some call it a soul, others have other names for it. You can try to hide from it, you can try to disguise it, you can hang pretty drapes on it, you can color it anyway you choose, you can make it up all tough & manly or all sweet & womanly. What you cannot do it change it. Through all the decorations, added or removed, the person will know deep inside, who and what they are. I just hope that the knowledge matches up to the outward display. Because if it does not, the knowledge will eventually kill them.

  18. It seems the item does double-duty with protecting and dilating the new vaginal canal with a soft cottony object that secretes a serum that keeps everything lubricated and healthy. I may not agree with the entire trans experience at this time, but I also know that I have ignorances about the subject. They say time heals all wounds. Maybe the public will heal in time to this. Trans-gendered individuals do not pose a threat to me. I have no idea why they would want menses, but to each their own……..to each their own.

    Transgender people are mentally ill.

    ‘gender is a social construct’

    If it is a social construct how are you ‘born in the wrong body’? It’s just a social construct. There is no such thing as ‘being born in the wrong body’, your brain just doesn’t function properly and thinks you are special.

    No, you are suffering from a mental condition. It might sound nasty, and we all know that people these days don’t like hearing the truth in case it upsets them (trigger warnings LOL) but you need help.

    • Keegan Simons // July 8, 2015 at 10:01 am // Reply

      You obviously never took sociology in college. Gender IS a social construct, and, as someone else said, gender is different from sex.

      There are certain behaviors and characteristics that are expected from males and females that divide them on a level beyond biology. And these divisions, I might add, are NOT equal. For example, if a female wishes to behave like a boy, it’s accepted, even encouraged. Tomboys are a good thing! Girl Power! And all that. But if a male wants to behave as a girl, he’s a sissy, a deviant, a pervert, a social pariah.

      I myself am a pre-op trans woman. However, my decision has very little to do with how I feel my body should be, and I may never actually get the full deal when it comes to surgery. My goals stem from my desire to be able to behave a certain way and not be ostracized by those around me.

      It’s shocking to me how hateful people are about things they don’t understand. But then, a lack of understanding breeds fear, and fear breeds hate, so I guess it’s understanding.

      Note: Gender Dysphoria, unfortunately for all my fellow trans out there who think it’s not, IS a disorder. One that CANNOT be treated by trying to retract it. Just like you can’t treat gay, you can’t treat trans. The only thing that’s consistently made transgender people happier with their lives rather than making them worse is acceptance and therapy to move them towards their desired gender, not confine them to their given sex. Gender dysphoria is not, however, a delusion. What I do believe might be called a delusion, though, is the belief that you are a different sex. I am male. As much as I wish I could, I can never change that. Maybe in a few centuries, we’ll figure out how, but for now, we can’t.

      But, while I am male, I am most certainly not a man. And that is the distinction that I think so many people fail to make. Even among the trans community.

      So, go take a sociology class. Learn what gender actually is. It isn’t biology.

      • Keegan Simons // July 8, 2015 at 10:05 am // Reply

        I got so wrapped up in setting people straight that I forgot the matter at hand. I still think this product is ridiculous. I have never met a woman who called menstruation “beautiful”. Ever.

      • Keegan, you sound sane. Unlike most trans and their allies who’l rip you a new one for suggesting even politely some of what you stated here. I really wish we could just get rid of the straight-jackets. I have nothing against femmy men. And yes, they ARE men. But I wish they would embrace their way of being men and celebrate it instead of trying to pass themselves off as women and invading our spaces. Gender dysphoria isn’t a delusion but believing you are the other sex is.

      • While I appreciate you explaining your point, I find you can not agree.

        Men are lauded for acting feminine, drag is big business and makes men lots of money, so does being trans. People treat Laverne Cox like a godess even though he spews violent rhetoric,people worship at Conchita Wurst’s feet because people think he’s trans, and call him beautiful and “feirce” when an actual woman in his position would be abused for being a “nasty hairy dyke”

        Tomboys are not actually accepted, when people say they accept tomboys and men say they want a woman who can just be “one of the boys” with them, they mean they want a woman who can perform femininity without trying and that objectifies women just like they do.
        They want a woman who fits their crappy standard of beauty without makeup and has an exaggeratedly feminine posture without heels, they want a woman who’s hairless even though she doesn’t shave and want her to call women “bitch” and “dyke.”

        If you were a woman, you’d understand at least some of this.

      • “You obviously never took sociology in college. Gender IS a social construct, and, as someone else said, gender is different from sex.”

        No matter what logic you attempt, the fact that these people perform amputation and believe its the same as women is incredibly sexist and ignorant. I don’t care what you choose to “identify” as, I care about reality.

    Guys, have you ever wanted to menstruate?

    Now you can! No uterus required!

    Simply insert the non-satirical and completely genuine Fem-Flo into your post-op canal and wait for it to start releasing thick, juicy menses. Your period comes with three settings, much like a ceiling fan: light, medium, and heavy.

    • it is not an inverted penis since the corpora cavernosa, the corpus spongiosum, and the crura are removed. It is just skin-and skin can become nrmal vaginal mucosa via metalasia.

      • No, it can’t – because it doesn’t belong to a vagina. It’s still penile skin, regardless of whether it becomes mucosa or not (there is mucosa on the penis). A vagina is a MUSCULAR ORGAN.

        • You do not know the anatomy. It becomes normal vaginal mucosa. It is not at all penis skin. The tissue undergoes metaplasia. The muscular layer exiss also. It is the RV septum and pubovesical/cervical fascia.

    The whole “dialation” excuse is prettymuch bullshit. A tampon sized dialator wont do squat. And yeah, it is purely mental to use these. And yeah, if you NEED to use these for your mental well being, than you DO have a mental illness. We are transsexuals… we are as close to genetic women as we can be. But we also need to accept that there are limits. I am a woman, sure, but i cant mense or get pregnant or birth a baby. I can accept that reality, and be satisfied with the fact that i “pass” well, have a “F” on my drivers license, have “female” on my new birth certificate, and suffer ZERO discrimination for being a transsexual. OR, i can drive myself crazy doing this kind of extra bullshit in an effort to make me feel better about myself. OMG, why would i WANT this extra hassle? Its not like someone is peering through the cracks in the bathroom stall to see if i mense. Its not like i am gonna burst out of my stall waving this bloody thing around yelling “see, i AM a woman”. And its not like a fake tampon/period is gonna make me viable to get pregnant and have babies…

    To both my fellow Trans sisters that feel the need for this product, AND to the bigots spouting their hate, GROW THE FUCK UP!

      Thank you! I’m a cis woman & my head was reeling until I read your comment. Like, why would you want this? I don’t want mine as it is. Are they going to come out with a model that zaps the muscles to induce cramps next? I have 2 trans women friends & I’m so jealous they don’t have to deal with the monthly nonsense. I’m glad you’re realistic. I kept thinking of that South Park episode where everyone was having trans surgeries.

  28. “Our product is designed to give post-op trans-gender women the full-spectrum experience of menstruation”

    Except the actual experience of menstruation? I mean, we’re all adults here, we do understand that menstruation is the biological process of the uterus shedding its lining and not just women having some red coming out of them for a few days right?

    • That is a really dumb comment.

      • No, it is completely spot on- having some red veg dye leask into a tampon in a wound made of inverted dick skin is a not the “full spectrum” of menstruation for any single woman on the planet earth.

    If these products help transgendered women with their needs and reassignment surgery then why not? We should hear from their community since it is a product made for them not us! How ignorant are we to judge them? Surgery may seem extreme but it is an option now.Throughout time our elders recognized four genders. You can research this and all shamans and healers, wise people of old knew this. This is not new information. We just now have the technology for gender re-assignment. This is new. As an American Indian woman we view our bleeding cycle as a sacred time. I can see why this might be important to have as a transgendered woman. Just my thoughts.

    • Thank you for your acceptance.

      I can’t imagine a post-op woman putting something inside her that has a chemical in it. If I wanted to dilate with a tampon–I’d use a regular one. Debris can’t be flushed out of a Trans vajayjay conveniently–as would happen with a natural vaginal flow.

      • What in the hell are you talking about? Natural vaginal flow? Flow of what? Menstrual blood? It’s hardly a “flow.” Debris doesn’t “flow” out of a vagina. You men really don’t understand the female body in the slightest.

  38. Trans women are male. They will never be female no matter what. This products reeks of misogyny! MALES DO NOT BELONG IN FEMALE SPACES!!!!!

    • and your EXACT Clinical experience is…?

    • Briana, her EXACT clinical experience is ACTUALLY BEING A WOMAN. I agree with her 100%.

    • scientifically and factually they can become women.

      • Um…no, they can’t. They can’t surgically remove that Y chromosome. And CAIS people are male-intersex, so don’t use that argument.

        • You are incorrect. There is no male intersex-just intersex.
          Transsexuals can become phenotyic females. And there are Swyer XY females with a normal Y chromosome.

          • That’s incorrect, not only is that a contradiction but you are using wordplay to explain a pseudo scientific concept that is in no way real. Men cannot become women, there is no evidence to support transexualism, infact there is overwhelming evidence AGAINST it. You also appear to not understand the difference between gender and sex.

            What YOU do is essentially replacing the label of WATER from an H2O container with soda, and adding the water label to the Soda container, it is STILL water and the other is STILL soda.

            Gender Dysphoria(it’s actual name) is a mental illness, most “trans” gain mental stability and stop trying to identify as the opposite sex once they find ways and help in dealing with their problems, and although not everyone’s story is the same, there has never been a sexchange in history, ever, just how a human cannot change into another species. Ultimately, you only fool yourself, and you(not literally you) bully others into accepting that fallacy with fear mongering and hate.

          • You are incorrect. The anatomical sex changed to femae and is as a hysterectomized woman. The Y chromosome is not relevaant since there are born females with a Y chromosome. YOu do not have facts.

          • Actually I do, and there is no female with Y chromosome, there is downsyndrome, and all other sorts of mixtures that cause dangerous birth defects. But the Y and X chromosome determines sex, among many MANY other things, chromosomes are very relevant, second, plastic surgery and amputations does not change sex. It’s extremely offensive that men think they can become women, or women can become ment through shallow changes. These are the facts, there is no scientific evidence to support trans, even the people who first performed these surgeries are against it.

          • You are not correct. Ther are plenty of females with a Y chromosome. Just google XY female. Post-op transwomen are certainly phenotypic females.

          • “Post-op transwomen are certainly phenotypic females.”

            Not sure if you meant preop, but there is no surgery that alters sex, it’s even in the definition. Either way, there is, except in some few cases, no differences at all between males, and males that want to be women(trams as you call them). No brain differences that are not caused by environment or behaviour, no chromosome abnormalities, EVERYTHING is fine except their psychological state. I know MANY “trans”, one of them I knew since little, and it is only when they snap that they build that delusion, they even start lying about things in the past that never happened. This is a delusion, a mental illness, there is SERIOUS physical damage done to a body both during hormonal treatment and postop, postop suicide rates go up dramatically after treatment. Hormonal treatment also makes a person more mentally unstable.

            This is not a game, this is nonsense, articles like these are the very manifestation of bigotry. I know you mean well, but this is wrong, this is catering to mental illness instead of helping these people like the MANY others who have stopped having these feelings, this is offensive to men and women everywhere, this is unscientific, this is profitable, this is evil.

          • By definition they do change phenotypic sex. For some it is a neural cross coding of the sex dimorphism of the brain-over a dozen studies using autopsy, PET, fMRI.

          • No, not really, scientifically they are 100% males that take female hormones with amputated genitals and implants.

          • Actually you are not correct. They do become phenotypic females and morphoogically female with normal vaginal tisue, normal femalle breast ducts and anatomically like a normal female after a hysterectomy.

          • It seems I need to keep repeating how incorrect and unscientific your statements are. They do not become female, if you peel an apple to make it round, then put orange skins on it, it does not make it an orange. No amount of labelling will change that.

            More food for thought:

            Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.

            Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically.

            He also reported on a new study showing that the suicide rate among transgendered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non-transgender people. Dr. McHugh further noted studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic of children who had expressed transgender feelings but for whom, over time, 70%-80% “spontaneously lost those feelings.”

            While the Obama administration, Hollywood, and major media such as Time magazine promote transgenderism as normal, said Dr. McHugh, these “policy makers and the media are doing no favors either to the public or the transgendered by treating their confusions as a right in need of defending rather than as a mental disorder that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention.”

            Time magazine, June 9, 2014,

            cover story, The Transgender Tipping Point:

            America’s Next Civil Rights Frontier. (Photo: AP)
            “This intensely felt sense of being transgendered constitutes a mental disorder in two respects. The first is that the idea of sex misalignment is simply mistaken – it does not correspond with physical reality. The second is that it can lead to grim psychological outcomes.”

            The transgendered person’s disorder, said Dr. McHugh, is in the person’s “assumption” that they are different than the physical reality of their body, their maleness or femaleness, as assigned by nature. It is a disorder similar to a “dangerously thin” person suffering anorexia who looks in the mirror and thinks they are “overweight,” said McHugh.

            This assumption, that one’s gender is only in the mind regardless of anatomical reality, has led some transgendered people to push for social acceptance and affirmation of their own subjective “personal truth,” said Dr. McHugh. As a result, some states – California, New Jersey, and Massachusetts – have passed laws barring psychiatrists, “even with parental permission, from striving to restore natural gender feelings to a transgender minor,” he said.

            The pro-transgender advocates do not want to know, said McHugh, that studies show between 70% and 80% of children who express transgender feelings “spontaneously lose those feelings” over time. Also, for those who had sexual reassignment surgery, most said they were “satisfied” with the operation “but their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn’t have the surgery.”

            Pro-transgender activists. The

            Obama administration announced

            in May that Medicare will

            now cover transgender surgical

            procedures. (AP)
            “And so at Hopkins we stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery, since producing a ‘satisfied’ but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs,” said Dr. McHugh.

            The former Johns Hopkins chief of psychiatry also warned against enabling or encouraging certain subgroups of the transgendered, such as young people “susceptible to suggestion from ‘everything is normal’ sex education,” and the schools’ “diversity counselors” who, like “cult leaders,” may “encourage these young people to distance themselves from their families and offer advice on rebutting arguments against having transgender surgery.”

            Dr. McHugh also reported that there are “misguided doctors” who, working with very young children who seem to imitate the opposite sex, will administer “puberty-delaying hormones to render later sex-change surgeries less onerous – even though the drugs stunt the children’s growth and risk causing sterility.”

            Such action comes “close to child abuse,” said Dr. McHugh, given that close to 80% of those kids will “abandon their confusion and grow naturally into adult life if untreated ….”

            “’Sex change’ is biologically impossible,” said McHugh. “People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.”

            Scientifically, there is no such thing as “transgendered”. According to Dr. Norman P. Spack, a pediatric endocrinologist, and the very founder of the transgender program at Boston’s Children’s Hospital, who is in favor of giving children hormone blockers, hormone shots and subjecting them to sex reassignment surgery “as early as possible” (whatever that means to him), “Most specialists believe that transgenderism is a neurological disorder”. So, he says, “We shouldn’t blame sex reassignment surgery for patients’ psychological problems”. We shouldn’t “blame” such surgery for patients’ psychological improvements either. The neurological disorder may be the cause for believing that they were born in the wrong body, but has nothing to do with actually being born in the wrong body or having any other sex or gender than their genetic or their birth sex. Hormone blockers, hormone therapy and sex reassignment surgery are not the proper treatment for any neurological disorder. According to statement issued by the state of California in 2015, “No treating physician has ever determined that sex reassignment surgery is ever medically necessary”.

          • WHY do you continue to throw shade???
            For Pete’s sake stop the hate.

            Your life must be really empty if you are compelled to continue commenting here… 🙁

          • Dr McHugh’s views have been discredited. Further, Dr McHugh was only a psychiatrist and further covered up a child abuse scandal. The world experts on sex determination like Drs. Albert de la Chapelle, Joe Leigh Simpson, Eric Vilain, at the International Olympic Committee rightly designate that post-op transsexuals are phenotypic and morpholigc females. Further,in the MT vs JT marriage case it was found that the post-op transsexual was female.

          • @Brina, Please stop the bigotry, there is no reason why standing for science, truth and that which is logical is to be considered “hate” by anyone, that sort of psychology is part of hategroup tactics. If you find any of that offensive, then quite frankly, that is not my problem, your truthphobia is of no concern to me. What is truly offensive is how people believe this junk and project incredible amounts of misogyny by thinking that a woman is nothing but plastic surgery and amputations away.

            I for one, refuse to be bullied by lies.

            Like I said before, There’s two things going on here, for the “street level” leftist, labeling any form of disagreement with them as “hate” allows them to attack conservatives and others that disagree with them without actually having to argue the merits of their position (or even acknowledge the merits of their opponents position). This makes it easier for them to feel good about themselves because they’re “fighting the haters”. And ultimately their ideology is driven by emotion and feelings because most of the time their arguments fall apart. You are not tolerant, you are ignorant, you are not good, you are catering to mental illness while overstepping the rights of everyone else, this is no different than ignorant neo feminist ideals that display hate towards males.

          • Jesica, That is incorrect, there have been opinions against it, but no evidence to refute it, his statements remain a fact and experts agree that sex change is impossible. There is no single source that offers evidence that sex change is possible or that gender dysphoria is not a mental illness, it has EVERY aspect of a mental illness, the psychological problems are a cause, not a result. You may choose to favor the opinion of a blog or some sort that shares your views, but that does not make it any more legitimate.

          • I enjoy your reference but your attitude toward Trans is sociopathic!

            Trans people don’t have a “sex change”– as we are already the new gender that we have chosen.

            All you’re doing is throwing shade and hate.

            It’s easy to see how intelligent you are otherwise. Why not go argue sports somewhere and not troll Trans issues.

            I’m leaving this convo–as cis people could never understand how Trans people feel.

          • @Brina, Your attitude is textbook bigotry, simply by refusing to check references. The reason it seems sociopathic to you is because you are not interested in the truth and instead have socially invested in the subject of your desire, hence, you will accuse of hate in order to avoid responsibility or a logical argument. It’s about as logical as a person trying to argue to the doctor that smoking is good for him because it helps him “relax” while being asthmatic and the doctor educates him and tells him that it is not. That is what gender dysphoriacs are like, only that you will receive death threats, vandalism, bigotry and all forms of bullying from LGBT folk, and the media will show it all as heroism fighting for “equality(despite violating the rights of others).

            That said, Sex and Gender are two different things, since proLGBT tend to not have an understanding of these things, I will, once again, explain.

            Sex(biological, unchanged) is what you are born with, what you are, and will always be, xy(male) xx(female). Chromosomes also affect alot more than just your sex.

            Gender(social) is essentially the label that goes with the sex for legal and social purposes, the m or f in the license. Male(man) female(woman). This is what gender dysphoriacs attempt to change, it is however a lie. Even if you step over everyone else’s rights and demand to be treated like a member of the opposite sex by stealing a gender tag, it is still just a lie, and the most evil part of it all, besides the incredible misogyny and shallowness is that the rest are constantly bullied into encouraging and following along with the delusion.

          • Furthermore if you support people pretending to bleed out of their fake amputated genitalia, pretending they are members of the opposite sex, trespassing bathrooms, abusing children into extremely harmful treatments because they meet what you think are the gender stereotypes despite the hypocrisy of LGBT denying said rights, then you are a sick individual, not to mention evil for agreeing to force this on others, especially children. You have no right to preach to anyone about tolerance.

    This is too ridiculous for words. Just no. Tampon or no, transwomen will never menstruate. Not that that’s a bad thing. They’ll never know the excruciating pain of cramps, the rollercoaster of PMS or the messy inconvenience of bleeding for days.

    What’s next? Period products for postmenopausal women? This is some first-world shit for realz.

  41. Transwomen envy us because we “get” to have periods so they go to these stupid lengths to pretend that they do.
    This should tell you everything about transwomen, they think being a woman is fun, they label being forced to menstruate a privilege.
    They will never deal with the repulsion people have for actual women menstruating and they will never be seen as broken or barren because they don’t menstruate.

    • hey cunt shut your fuck hole.

      • ^^ See what Danny says there? These are the people defending transgenderism. It doesn’t take long to notice how much these people hate women.

        • I say woman, or rather you, hate

          And it’s a silly kind of hate.

          It’s like hate similar to racism or hating people for being blind.
          Why?

          If you wanna hate, hate on cancer, that’s evil.
          A person that changes outer appearance to feel calmer within. Why is that something to care about?
          People used to hate on handicapped or blacks or asaians or homosexuals . Then afew years went by and people stopped cause there wasn’t a reason to hate people who isn’t just like yourself.

          • So do you always use the word “hate” to bully people in arguments? Your entire response was practically an empty accusation of hate, and then a complaint on cancer. Then an incredibly uneducated argument.

            “People” didn’t hate on handicapped, blacks, asians or homosexuals.

            One side hated blacks, and the others protected them, people who protected blacks were mostly Christians, ranging from Abe Lincoln to Martin Luther King Jr..

            Almost no one hates homosexuals, more than half of homosexuals have never faced(and are unlikely) to face any type of discrimination, and it has been like that for decades, the portion that did get discriminated, was discriminated usually by non Christians. The issue with homosexuality is, that 96% of the planet(more or less) will find its acts disgusting, yes, disgusting. But that does not mean you hate someone. And as for the handicapped thing, it’s the first time I hear about that. lol

  42. If you really want the pleasure of menses, you should eat something that makes you sick to your stomach and gives you diarrhea and cramps. Then take a pill that makes you feel bloated and retain water.

    The only thing menses were good for was confirming I wasn’t pregnant. Honestly, when I went through menopause I was happy that “the curse” was over.

    OK, put me in the “I don’t understand why someone would want this, but whatever….” column.

    This is whacky.
    So here’s my perspective, as a trans man.

    “for the trans-woman who wishes to enjoy ‘heavy’ menstruation”
    Uhmmm….menstruation isn’t supposed to be enjoyable, in fact it’s probably the worst thing about being a cis woman. This is a bit bizarre.

    Heavy menstruation is actually quite miserable. It’s one of the things that I feel insanely blessed to be without now and it’s not just because it made me feel terribly dysphoric. I’ve never met a cis woman who enjoyed heavy menstruation let alone anything lighter.

    • I’m a transman as well! (albeit non-op)

      I also suffer from severe endometriosis with the heaviest bleeding that you can imagine. Luckily, my cycles are only limited to two days. I have had surgery to remove my cancerous growths twice now.

      So naturally I cannot imagine why anyone would want any part of this mess.

  46. Lock them up n throw away the key. Or maybe you know I have never felt like a commoner I feel more like a Windsor, Oppenheimer or de Rothschild so Obama better bring me a billion dollars or I’ll just cry real loud No Fair!.

  47. I love getting my period. transwomen freak me out. i found a video on youtube entitled, “How to simulate a period (for transgender women)” and for some reason, watching it made me really, really, really sad. Like you can just put food coloring and starch in whatever you trans”women” have down there and feel like you have a period…you will never understand the cramps that start out small, then get worse and worse, and then trigger the actual bleeding from your actual, natural vagina, signifying your actual fertility. it’s a beautiful thing. little blood clots come out and everything. and the smell of period blood is amazing. everything transwomen do is a cheap substitute. they are wasting their time and should have just embraced their natural male body.

    • Yeah, transwomen are the scariest and weirdest men alive.

      • THANK YOU BOTH for your tolerance and understanding.

        READ the comments by TransWOMEN!!!

        This product was invented by a natal woman that thought she knew Trans. She was wrong.

        NONE of the actual Transwomen on this thread embraced the product.

        Please keep your bitterness and hate inside where it obviously belongs for you.

    • zen_anon, I threw up in my mouth a little at your comment. I’d be overjoyed if I never had another period again. I don’t plan to ever have children, so the only function menstruation serves for me is letting me know that I’m not pregnant.

  48. I wonder if they are also going to start selling pills that induce cramps and the like… Is humanity going insane?!

    • Yes, they are going insane. And they are growing hateful, vengeful, ignorant and bigoted if we don’t encourage them. They are LITERALLY going crazy.

  49. Please tell me this is a joke!

  50. These posts are hilarious. Did anyone even read the extra pros for using these? When I get my change, I’d use these purely for the benefits they provide. Oh and my favorite comment has got to be the one that used the term “transfaggot”. Made me chuckle. Heh… guess I’m a transfaggot, and proud of it!

  51. Who and their right mind wants a period?! This is not only delusional, but yet another trick to get a heterosexual man to think you are a real woman. This is wrong on so many levels, and the trans community wants to know why they keep coming up dead and missing. If you are a trans woman, be proud (I think), don’t lie to men. This FemFlo is just 1 big lie. What happens when you can’t have children, but have a period? What lie will you tell the man then?

    • The scariest part is how against all logic, against all science, the media continues to spread this as heroic and true. When in reality they are not only feeding their dangerous delusion, violating the rights of actual men and women, but they are also spreading what they clearly know is lies and misinformations. There are many people out there who are grown up adults that literally believe they are “born this way”, there are people giving hormone blockers to their children with long term damage trying to get media praise, gender dysphoria are obviously affected by their psychological problems, causing them mental damage, but those who encourage them are evil.

  52. I just want to take a minute to make sure everyone understands that like virtually no trans women are going to be interested in this. Speaking as a trans woman, I am assuredly not. I have no idea WTF purpose this would serve, this seems more like some kind of cruel gag gift. I don’t know WHO this is for.

  53. Recreate the menstruation experience? Any Transgender women thinking of buying one – this will be as useful to you as a bicycle would be to a fish.
    No woman uses a tampon when she doesn’t to -its very uncomfortable especially in the last days of your period. Not to mention the danger of Toxic shock hanging over you. I personally prefer sanitary pads.
    For Women who experience period its a mixed bag. For me some months are good, some months can still be awful and I’ve been menstruating for over twenty years. Especially in the painful and heavy first two days where you feel like a disgusting creature and want to lock yourself away. If they’ve arrive early and you haven’t remembered to stock back up your emergency supply you’re in trouble. Periods are a hindrance but going from girlhood to womanhood you have no choice to co exist with them. Believe me nothing can give you the full experience and you certainly wouldn’t buy it or want it.

  54. I am a pre op transwoman and i think the fem flo petite tapons idea is a great idea for transgenders to be able to feel like real women and feel geniuine about themselves cos just like me as a pre op transwoman i want to be a real woman i wish i could have all the pain the blood yes it might be dirty seem unreal but its part of being a real woman and if your a true woman like me youve gotta take that on the chin and monthly periods are a part of that and thats why when this product comes out on the market im going to be buying lots of it ,well as much as i can afford anyway but my point is yes its un-natural but its natural for us transwomen who want to feel like normal women and psychologically are women so we need anything and everything around us to help us to help us to be the women that we should have been born to be not what the world had been to percieve us to be, we are not aliens we are just deformaties sort of like a disability of creation if you like and we like all humans just want a normal life and me personally maybe one day want to also get pregnant so, you never know they’ve done it already in america!!! Im hoping soon it will be available on the nhs in england so i too can become pregnant and have a baby.

  55. After srs, post op,

    You need to dilate every day for year. Then weekly.

    If this product reduces time needed to dilate, and removes the blood part. It’s a good thing 🙂

  56. The only true traps (and those males actually want) are CHICKS WITH DICKS.

    The rest are just poor facsimiles.

  57. First of all some of the hateful things coming out of these comments are disgusting. And to some of the cis women out here arguing that a trans women would have to be delusional to want a period and all that it comes with, remember that symbolically a period means so so much more to represent womanhood in our society, then the actuality of it. In which films or representations of young girls coming of age do they not have scenes or examples where she begins to bleed and her mom takes her aside and says to her “now you’re a woman”. Even symbolically after a woman experiences menopause she is considered “less of a woman”. How can you not understand why this important societal idea of femininity would want to be experienced by a transwoman? Maybe not every transwoman but if some wish to experience then who’s to stop them. Also we live in 2016 everything is a delusion, from hair dye to implants to white kids wishing they were Japanese. Guys with small dicks buying trojans xxl to experience being a “real man”, is this body dysmorphic disorder? The answer is no. Please let people live the life they want.

    • Your comment is by far the most misogynistic comment I’ve read on this subject. No a period is not a right of passage for women, it’s just something that happens to you. In fact it means a woman can now conceive a child – historically this was a sign a girl was eligible for marriage.
      You cannot understand that moment for a young girl of 12 or 13 when she begins to bleed – it is very scary and to make it out to be something you can buy and put on like a piece of women’s clothing is very disrespectful. My periods were so painful for the first two years I had to be placed on birth control to stop me having normal monthly periods. My experience is 1)Periods are not a pretty experience 2) I did not miss having them when I was on birth control 3)I did not feel like less of a girl without them.

      Only men think a post menopause women is “less of a woman” Women rely on the wisdom and experience of the monarchs of their family and community.

      No I don’t understand what it is to be a trans but I can say – If you are going to meter your eligibility as a woman on fake red ooze from a product you buy at a chemist, you’ve failed to understand what it means to be a woman

      • Really my comment is by far the most misogynist? Obviously you haven’t read this thread..Or maybe I should try to be clearer with what I am saying. I never said that a period is truly is a right of passage for women, I don’t believe that in the slightest, I am saying symbolically in society it has been deemed as one. I do not think a period makes a woman a woman and I don’t think menopause makes a woman any less of one, but these are pressures and stereotypes that have been placed on femininity for a very long time and you can’t deny that trans women are also subjected to these ideas. But it is not about how I feel and It’s also not about how YOU feel and about YOUR experiences as a woman, how painful it was for YOU and whether or not it made YOU feel more or less like a girl . It’s about people having the right to choose what they experience. Instead of people judging this product so harshly maybe try letting people decide what they want to do with their own bodies, no matter how “disrespectful?” you feel it to be. Judging from this thread there are lots of transwomen who would never use this product but If there are some transwomen out there who want to experience a period BY god let them. Stop taking the time and energy out of your day to tell people what is real and what isn’t because it really is often subjective isn’t it.

    You’re missing the part about extreme pain. Oh and how excruciating your ovaries will feel if you develop P.O.C? No biological male, which IS MT”F” will EVER experience that. .. 🙁

    • You don’t now what you are talking about. Now that they do MTF ovarian transplants successfully in China they very well MAY have that. They are not biologic males anymore but are MTF (no quotes). They are a biologic chimeric female.

    When will South Park air an episode to sarcastically ridicule this epitome of DELUSION? Yeah, call me a bigot, you sniveling c0cksuckers.

  60. A ‘transgender’ person undergoing genital mutilation to better match the sex they believe themselves to be is not unlike a schizophrenic marrying the voices in his head or throwing himself off a building because he believes he is Superman.
    Their beliefs simply do not match reality. Therefore they are suffering from delusion.
    They must be hospitalized and treated exactly as any other mentally ill person who is at risk of harming themselves or others. And they ARE a threat to themselves and others!
    *They are a threat to themselves as they will abuse drugs and try to mutilate their bodies in an attempt to match their delusions.
    *They are a threat to others as they will psychologically abuse and attempt to mutilate and drug minors who show signs of the illness.

  61. Ultimate slap in the face for a female born mammal. Especially one who wants what these men have given up. Who the fuck wants a period? No one does. Tell you what else these transgendered female idiots are not going to like….The Discrimination that comes with being female.

  62. Wow, I would loove love love to turn in every single death threat in the comment thread.
    Maybe once you intolorent assholes are forced to put on a wig and bend over, you’ll have a more tolerable understanding of trans individuals.
    Also love how all these cis people think that they are an expert on this, even though most of them repress their sexuality (and sometimes gender identity) and they have been doing it for thousands of years. Basically what I’m saying is, everything from your point of view is wrong because you’ve made it wrong.
    Maybe once there is a truly unbiased point of view, you can say what you will. But in the mean time, Literally every side that is against trans people cannot be considered valid information. There is no actual proof to any of what the naysayers are saying. While on the other hand, trans people are actually trans, and actually understand what they are talking about.

  63. A real period experience would scare anyone from wanting to be biologically female.

    I figured the treatments were enough pain to earn the badge of womanhood.

    This advertisement is like other tampon commercials where everyone smiles and looks pretty while in real life women are wearing sweatpants or struggling to smile during work.
