Tampons and Transphobia

Trigger Warning: Transphobia, cissexism

Edit: Thank you for those who let me know that the appropriate term is 'trans woman' with a space. It has now been changed. This article explains why (via Elichrusos)

Libra is the Australian & New Zealand arm of an international brand of women's 'feminine hygiene' products. So basically, they sell tampons, pads ect. I've never tended to pay much attention to their advertisements to be honest. To me, tampon ads to seem to (usually) all look the same. Some of them I find mildly offensive due to the stereotyping of women in the advertisements, but most of the time they don't even make my radar.
