Tampax’s silent wrappers attract a heated debate on Twitter for ‘stigmatising’ periods

Tampon brand Tampax is being slammed online for offering products with “silent wrappers”.

An eagle-eyed Twitter user took to the social media platform to criticise the brand, accusing it of “stigmatising” periods.

The post has been liked over 37,500 times and been retweeted over 2000 times.

“Silent wrappers?! I’m on my period, not an MI5 mission,” Sophia posted to Twitter.

“Honestly, grow up @Tampax_UK – what is this stigmatising bulls***?”

Another added: “Actually racking my brain trying to think of a single scenario when you would need to unwrap a tampon silently??? Nope.”

But others backed the brand with several users suggesting situations when the wrappers could be appropriate.

“As an adult, yes. But as a shy teenager in the school toilets, I’d have really appreciated this,” one person replied.

But Sophia said that if teenagers were not made to feel embarrassed about their periods then this wouldn’t be a problem.
