A Cincinnati nurse was placed on administrative leave after allegedly launching into a tirade against gay and transgender people on Facebook in response to a sanitary towel-maker's decision to remove the feminine Venus sign from its products.

Cindy Carter allegedly made the comments which were posted on Twitter by Cincinnati City Councilman Chris Seelbach who expressed outrage over the remarks.

Carter - ER - Nurse - TriHealth - Bethesda

Carter apparently works as an ER nurse for TriHealth and works at the Bethesda Butler Hospital in Hamilton, Ohio, New York Daily News reported.

In multiple messages, the nurse allegedly wrote she did not believe in the existence of transgender people, adding: 'Men need to be men. Women need to be women.'

'This - Country - S*** - Women - Periods

She allegedly claimed: 'This country has gone to complete s***. Women have periods. Men don't. Why do certain applications ask for LEGAL're either male or female.

'There's no f*****g in-between. Jesus people get your heads on straight. Grab a mirror- it's easy. You either have a d**k or you don't.'

Decision - Procter - Gamble-owned - Always - Items

She was reportedly reacting to a decision by Procter & Gamble-owned Always, which makes items for menstruation, to remove the feminine Venus symbol from its pad packaging.

A trans activist using the pseudonym 'Melly Boom' had tweeted in July asking Always why it was 'imperative' to have the sign on their sanitary products.

Tweet - Trans - Folks - Products

The tweet said: 'There are non-binary and trans folks who still need to use your products too you know!'

The Always marketing team replied with a comment that Saunders, 18, posted on Twitter, reading: 'We are glad to inform you that as of December we will use a wrapper design without the feminine symbol.'

Message - Towels - Packaging - Stores - January

The message stated that sanitary towels with the new packaging would hit the stores by January 2020 and added: 'We are absolutely grateful for having people like you voicing their opinions.'
