Clue aimed to be more inclusive but faced users backlash

Let's admit, Clue is by far the most efficient and fun period tracker but there are always haters!

On July 11, Clue made an announcement on Twitter that it was proposing to change their product description to [email protected] from female and even sought for advice.

Clue took this step in order to be more inclusive for transgenders or women who don't menstruate(pregnant) or women facing menopause or for women who don't have a uterus.

However, the majority of the users backlashed and stated that it offended all the women for whom the app was originally designed. Women all over tweeted on their page with their hate comments and asked them not to change their product description.

Well, it's still unclear that why putting '@' in the word female is offensive but no matter what Clue still stands as one of the best Period Tracking Apps.
