Kleenex Ditches "Mansize" Tissues Over Gender Concerns

"Mansize" Kleenex tissues will soon be re-branded after people complained.

Kimberly-Clark, the maker of Kleenex said that they received a "consistent increase of complaints on gender concern."

In a Daily Telegraph report, the company said that being soft and strong is not "an exclusively masculine trait, nor do we believe that the Mansize branding suggests or endorses gender inequality.

"Nevertheless, 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 sub-brand as Kleenex Extra Large."

Did Kleenex really have to re-brand these tissues? Are you offended?
