Kleenex rebrands 'sexist' Mansize tissues

Kleenex has binned its "Mansize" branding after some customers complained it was sexist.

After 60 years, the tissue boxes will be renamed "Extra Large" in response to criticism from customers and feminist campaigners.

Kimberley-Clark, which owns Kleenex, said it succumbed to growing public demand to change the name, despite not itself believing that the Mansize branding was sexist.

It comes amid a wider backlash against other gendered products, with Waitrose apologising and promising to change the name of its "Gentleman's Smoked Chicken Caesar Roll".

For goodness sake, do people have nothing better to do than complain about things like this!

No, no they don't. We have a whole generation of overly sensitively, easily offended idiots.

Read... "after criticism from feminist campaigners". I doubt VERY much that any true customers would have complained. And perhaps Kimberly Clark should have investigated just how many feminists buy their paper handkerchiefs before succumbing to their nagging !

No one is special. We're all a slow decaying mass of particles.
