Can I ask what the trans issue is? I’m seeing talk of it a lot but haven’t been able to get to the crux of the problem and am finding it confusing. I’m ashamed to say I’m a bit behind on the info with regards to trans and pan sexual ( I’m still not sure I fully understand pan sexuality) and have taken the approach of ‘do what makes you happy’ However MN is definitely making me feel I’ve missed a major piece on info on trans. If wouldn’t mind explaining that would be great as I feel rather ignorant at the moment.

Lush have always been woke.

When were lush ever above the ground?

Datun Sat 30-Nov-19 11:34:24

Lush fell yonks ago.

Lush is not know for its feminist views given it promoted sexualization of it's mostly female staff a few years ago.
Customers were encouraged to kiss the staffs body to leave a lipstick print...which was of coursed abused by some men.

The "trans issue" is not a trans issue it is a women's rights issue.
The loudest voice on the trans train is male and it is these males and their supporters that believe males should have access to female spaces anytime they choose just because they say so.

Lush fell years ago, haven't used them in years, partly because of their twaw stance but also their sales assistants are too in your face

Lush is not a shop I frequent. Can't make it past the industrial strength perfume barrier.

Yet to be troubled by any if these boycotts, can't help feeling a bit cheated, somehow. The day Twinings falls I'll be genuinely upset.

Lush stinks. Always has, always will.

puds11 Sat 30-Nov-19 11:40:26

Thank you @Pityparty4one I have a lot of reading to do blush

NatashaAlianovaRomanova Sat 30-Nov-19 11:41:22

@ScrimshawTheSecond surely Twinings are safe?

<stocks up on Lady Grey just in case>

Thankfully I am no longer forced to frequent the Hell dimension that is Lush so this won't apply to me but agree with PP they've always been woke.

Events like don’t bother me but I crossed Lush off a long hind ago over exploitative workplace practices.

puds the issue is predatory males [not a reference to TW] taking advantage of trans inclusive policies to access previously female-only spaces and harm girls and women.

The victims tend to be working class or marginalised so it’s hard to get people to care.

DuMondeB Sat 30-Nov-19 11:49:20

They let the trans impregnator OUT and kept the pregnant woman in?

I mean, fair enough if she’s a murderer but most women end up in prison for stuff like receiving stolen goods and non payment of fines, so...

Off to learn more about it!

I've always had to cross the road to avoid lush (quite literally - the pong brings on an asthma attack) but have been thoroughly disgusted with them since the kiss a member of staff incident mentioned upthread.

MyMajesty Sat 30-Nov-19 11:52:26

They didn't think of moving him to a male prison? confused

Furrybootsyecomfy Sat 30-Nov-19 11:52:27

I can’t remember it’s name, but there is a blog detailing Lush’s exploitative working practices. Put me right off of them. They would step over their own granny for a quick buck.
Also, essential oils are bad for your skin. A dermatology nurse once told me never to shop there.

puds11 Sat 30-Nov-19 11:54:13

Thank you @2BthatUnnoticed I can’t believe I’m so out of touch!

FFS. Yes as pp have pointed out, Lush are reliably awful.

I wouldn't agree, obviously, but I could sort of understand if they did a campaign for Mermaids. But Belcher and Trans Media Watch? Yes, let's make sickly perfumed bath bombs to facilitate the complete destruction of women's rights with no one being able to raise an objection. Top inclusión.

teenageanxy Sat 30-Nov-19 11:56:37

They lost me with their anti police campaign

MidnightCircus Sat 30-Nov-19 11:58:22

To fall, you must first rise. Lush never have. Still, not fussed as I've never liked them. Didn't know about that kiss the staff member thing though, why the hell did anyone think that was a good idea?

They’ve always been batshit

If you buy according to views, you’d have ditched them years ago.
