Kleenex is scrapping "Mansize" branding from its tissue boxes after 60 years on the shelves as consumers called it out for being sexist.

Kleenex For Men first launched in 1956, offering an alternative to large cotton handkerchiefs that were still popular at the time, and claiming to "stay strong when wet".

Online critics tweeted Kleenex to ask them why its products still used the term "Mansize", saying "the world is changing" and that "it is 2018".

Just how far is all the PC nonsense going to go ????
With Firemen now being called Firefighters and even Manhole covers having to be called Inspection or Maintenance covers, how soon will it be before the very word "man" is eradicated from the English language ?
Perhaps next to come is renaming us the "Hu-gender-neutral Race......"

I agree too, bunch of silliness, trying to be "politically correct"... Society is being too touchy, it never bothered me, really not a big deal.
