Hyperconsumer nerd product reviewer Linus Sebastian made a video where he walked around a new Amazon Go store. At one point during the review he picked up a package of feminine hygiene pads after opening up the review with a hypothetical about being embarrassed to talk to a cashier about buying "tampons".

the video in question, only the intro is really relevant

Linus talks about how some individual approached him at the store complaining to him that his bit about tampons was genderifying her stereotypes.

Here's an unlisted stream he did addressing it later

Linus is from, and currently lives in the greater Vancouver area. White people are less than 50% and ethnic Chinese make up the majority non-Caucasian race. You'll see about half of his staff is Asian, which is a demographically accurate representation of the area.

I'm more salty about the fact Linus doesn't know shit about tech than the fact he might have made some perpetually offended person online mad. Remember that time he tried to build a router only to short out several motherboards in the process?
