Comments on Calvin Klein also related to blocking the brand and labor work as well writing,

We knew this brand was twisted when they were linked to Uyghur slave labor.

The opinion of the brand was also counter questioned,

So you are intolerant of any opinion but yours and at the same time expect tolerance and inclusiveness from others. 

As expected comments were mostly relating to men’s pregnancy and confusion,

Men cannot get pregnant. How is it that you say that they can and do these things but no man should ever step into a conversation about a woman’s uterus? Y’all confuse me daily.
