A Cincinnati nurse was placed on administrative leave after allegedly starting a tirade against gays and transgenders on Facebook in response to a sanitary napkin producer's decision to remove the female Venus board from his products.
Cindy Carter allegedly made the comments posted on Twitter by Cincinnati City Councilman Chris Seelbach, who expressed indignation at the comments.
Carter apparently works as an ER nurse for TriHealth and works at Bethesda Butler Hospital in Hamilton, Ohio, New York Daily News reported.

She would have claimed: & # 39; This country has become s ***. Women have menstruation. Men don't. Why do certain applications require LEGAL SEX … you are a man or a woman.
& # 39; There is no f ***** g in between. Jesus people straighten your head. Grab a mirror – it's easy. You have a d ** k or not. & # 39;
She reportedly responded to a decision by Always from Procter & Gamble, who makes items for menstruation, to remove the female Venus symbol from the pad package.
A transactivist who uses the pseudonym & # 39; Melly Boom & # 39; had tweeted in July that he always asked why it & # 39; necessary & # 39; was to have the mark on their sanitary products.
The tweet said: & # 39; There are non-binary and trans people who also need to use your products, you know! & # 39;
The Always marketing team responded with a comment that Saunders, 18, posted on Twitter, read: & # 39; We are happy to inform you that from December we will use a wrapper design without the feminine symbol. & # 39;
The message stated that the sanitary napkin with the new packaging would be in stores by January 2020 and added: & # 39; We are absolutely grateful that people like you have expressed their opinion. & # 39;
But Carter was not happy with the decision and claimed: & # 39; I swear, these fantastic gays think they deserve everything. And the confused woman is just as bad. Men must be men. Women must be women.
& # 39; Stop the s **** d ass man sandwiches and man je sandwiches for some hard labor. (Some people have to work & # 39; work hard & # 39; google to find out what that is … sorry donkeys).
Seelbach posted a screenshot of the homophobic messages on Twitter and called on TriHealth, the hospital network that manages Bethesda Butler, to terminate her contract.
TriHealth said it took the allegations very seriously and started an internal investigation into the case on Friday. It has placed the nurse on administrative leave

Room 12 reported that the woman who reportedly wrote the post has been hacked.
Sabrina Sells, who identifies as gay, posted the offensive messages on Facebook and also called on TriHealth to dismiss her.
In a Facebook message, TriHealth said it took the allegations very seriously and started an internal investigation into the case on Friday.
It added: & # 39; The nurse was placed on administrative leave for her safety and the safety of our patients while the investigation continues.
& # 39; We are determined to close this issue quickly and will provide an update when the investigation is complete. & # 39;
The company said it is committed to fair and equitable access to health care by all individuals without regard to gender, culture, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, race and physical skills, as well as other classes provided by protected by law & # 39 ;.
Seelbach had asked for a boycott of TriHealth because of the nurse's comments.
He told WCPO: & # 39; Nurses must be able to treat everyone regardless of our differences, and having such extreme views and disclosing them frightens many of us to want a nurse to treat us.
& # 39; I would not feel comfortable going to TriHealth knowing that this woman could treat me as a nurse. & # 39;
