Today's award goes to the journalist(s) and/or editor(s) responsible for this utterly ludicrous headline:
It is, of course, complete and utter bull. Naturally (and I mean that both literally and figuratively) women are, indeed, the only people who menstruate! It can't possibly be any other way. Those responsible for this absurd headline are stretching reality in such a pretzel-like fashion that it's grotesque to the point of ridiculousness.
From the article:
When Thinx launched their line of absorbent underwear for periods, they used a slogan that seemed to make sense: “For women with periods.” But as they heard from more and more customers who felt left out by that branding, they realized that women aren’t the only ones who menstruate.
“We kept getting gentle reminders from people that it’s not just women with periods,” Miki Agrawal, founder and CEO of Thinx, tells Yahoo Canada. In response, the company spent a year developing a boyshort product in consultation with trans men and non-binary people who might use it. The resulting underwear, which resembles men’s boxer briefs but has the same absorbent fabric as their more traditionally feminine underwear, is meant to be worn instead of pads or tampons, or as back-up for those products.
Now the new slogan for Thinx is “For people with periods” and one of their campaigns features model Sawyer DeVuyst, who is a trans man. And the company is working on introducing more gender-neutral products in the future, Agrawal says.
The Thinx campaign is one of few acknowledgements from the sanitary products industry that menstruation doesn’t just happen to cisgender women. There are trans men who have to deal with their periods as well as non-binary people who menstruate.

Look . . . if a woman chooses to self-identify as a man, but chromosomally, genetically and otherwise is female to the point that she still has periods, THEY ARE NOT A MAN. THEY ARE A WOMAN. PERIOD. (Pun intended.) Even if the relevant organs are surgically removed, so that periods are no longer physically possible, that won't change the reality of the situation.
It doesn't matter what such people feel like, or what they want to be, or what their friends tell them they can be. Their bodies, their hormones, their chromosomes, and Mother Nature - all are telling them the truth. If they choose to deny that truth and pretend to be what they aren't, they are clearly in serious need of psychological and/or psychiatric help - but that does not make them male. They need not expect anyone with any respect for the truth to aid and abet their delusions by treating them as if they were real.
This is political correctness gone mad, and should be treated as such. To do otherwise would be dishonest - and the hallmark of a doofus. It's as simple as that.
