I created a graphic profile for a (fictional) more inclusive menstrual protection brand. I’ve learned that there are many people who menstruate but do not identify themselves as women. I have myself been fed by menstrual protection ads that talk to and about women. I read and learn from many different sources that feminized menstrual products, among many other things, serve as regular reminders to trans and non-binary people that a biological aspect of their bodies is deeply linked to social norms and expectations of femininity and womanhood. Therefore, I chose to find a solution to a more gender-neutral design for a menstrual protection brand. Where there is a linguistic and visual representation of both women, transsexual men, and other genderqueer people.
