Kleenex Advertises New ‘Mansize’ Tissues. You Already Know What Happens Next.

Is there nothing else more important going on in the world?

Published

on

Kleenex brand tissues recently decided to create a new product called “mansize” tissues, which is not only hilarious, but very practical. However, as you can imagine, such an item did not go over well in our overtly politically correct climate.

It didn’t take long for folks to hit the social media platforms and start calling the product “sexist,” which has led to Kleenex rebranding the product. Yes, apparently products designed for men are now sexist.

According to a report in the U.K.’s Telegraph, the “Mansize” tissue — which is the country’s most popular tissue — will undergo a facelift so as to not offend those who believe assigning a gender to tissues is wrong.

In a statement, the company said that they received a “consistent increase of complaints on gender concern,” and as a result, they will rebrand the tissues as “Kleenex Extra Large.” Instead “Mansize,” the tissue box will now boast phrases like “comfortingly soft” and “confidently strong.”

A spokesperson for the company told the outlet that the company “in no way suggests” that “comfortingly soft” and “confidently strong” are “exclusively masculine [traits], nor do we believe that the Mansize branding suggests or endorses gender inequality.”

“Kleenex Mansize tissues have been on shelves for the past 60 years. Over that time, the brand has always been characterised by a much larger tissue size, which is both soft and strong,” the company statement read.

“It was launched at a time when large cotton handkerchiefs were still very popular and Kleenex offered a unique disposable alternative,” the statement added. “Despite that our consumer service is registering consistent increase of complaints on gender concern related to Mansize subbrand.”

“Kimberly-Clark in no way suggests that being both soft and strong is an exclusively masculine trait, nor do we believe that the Mansize branding suggests or endorses gender inequality,” the statement explained. “Our Mansize tissues remain one of our most popular products, with 3.4 million people buying these tissues every year.”

“Nevertheless,” the statement concluded, “as we remain committed to developing the best possible products for our consumers and take any feedback extremely seriously, we decided to renovate our current product and update the product subbrand as Kleenex Extra Large.”

Sam Smethers, a chief executive for the Fawcett Society, a hardcore feminist campaign group has approved of Kimberly-Clark’s changes to the “mansized” tissues and has praised the moves the company is making to capitulate to the far left’s gender neutral agenda.

At the end of the day, it seems sort of silly to make a big deal out of tissues, but it seems folks these days are perpetually offended, always managing to take small, insignificant matters and blow them up into dire, urgent causes negatively impacting the whole human race.

Illinois freshman Democrat Lauren Underwood blamed America for the deaths of child migrants at the southern border. More on her below. She’s lied bigly before, too. WATCH: WATCH: After a dispute over comments by Rep. Underwood about the Trump admin. and the deaths of migrant children at the southern border, Republicans voted to have her comments removed from the record. https://twitter.com/MSNBC/status/1131330661367865346?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131330661367865346&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F05%2Filhan-omar-accuses-us-of-atrocities-on-border%2F Fellow radical freshman Ilhan Omar (MN) parroted Underwood’s words in a very ugly way.

After Ilhan said gruesome things about the United States as it relates to Venezuela, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley went after her pretty hard. WATCH: WOW: @IlhanMN says the U.S. has “helped lead the devastation in #Venezuela,” and accuses the U.S. on “bullying” the Maduro regime. Apparently Maduro’s starvation of his people and armored trucks running them over in the streets is not worthy of criticism in her eyes. https://twitter.com/thejcoop/status/1123676951573561345?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1123731527261720576&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F05%2F01%2Fbrutal-nikki-haley-lowers-the-boom-on-rep-ilhan-omar-and-her-support-of-the-maduro-regime%2F Enter Haley: [email protected] the avg Venezuelan adult has lost 24 lbs.

MUST SEE: Pro-Trump Jon Voight Stands Up For the Greatest President Since Abraham Lincoln

BOLD!

Jon Voight don’t care. He’s not intimidated by the far-left wing of Hollywood. He is accomplished. He’s proud to stand for the flag and supports President Trump. In a two-part Twitter video, the actor made it clear that he believes 45 is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. From Fox News: Actor Jon Voight expressed his support for President Trump, declaring him “the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln” in a two-part video message posted on Twitter on Friday night. Voight said, “I know that you’ll agree with me when I say that our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy for he’s battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. … Our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln.” He continued, “Don’t be fooled by the political left because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president, let us stand for this truth that President Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. God bless America.” PART I: https://twitter.com/jonvoight/status/1132093445743489024?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132093445743489024&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-jon-voight-releases-video-to-my-fellow-americans-calling-trump-the-greatest-president-since-abraham-lincoln%2F PART II: https://twitter.com/jonvoight/status/1132094914026770432?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132094914026770432&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-jon-voight-releases-video-to-my-fellow-americans-calling-trump-the-greatest-president-since-abraham-lincoln%2F Kelsey Grammer is far from the only conservative star in Hollywood, but like Voight, he’s one of the few willing to talk about his beliefs. It couldn’t have been easy working on “Cheers” with so many far-left radicals like Woody Harrelson and Ted Danson all of those years, but Grammer came out unscathed. Now, the “Frasier” star is taking a stand for President Trump by blasting the past 60 years of “clowns” running the nation. From Daily Wire: One of the few Hollywood conservatives, Kelsey Grammer of TV’s “Frasier,” is singing President Trump’s praises for doing more in 60 years than…
