Just recently, Erin Chack from Buzzfeed ran an interesting article that told the story of 21 everyday products that are entirely designed and sold on gender differences premises. From ear plugs to tea and tissues, we are invited to take a visual trip that pretty much consists of a pink panorama for women and a deep blue landscape for men.
As much as I support the idea of men and women wearing different clothes and preserving their biological heritage, I wonder why women are still regarded as pink fluffy products maniacs that need special deodorants, razors or beers? I for one have used my boyfriend’s deodorant without setting my armpits on fire and I just as well used a unisex razor without getting an allergy. Do we actually need all these contrasting products or are they on the market just to remind us how different society really tries to makes us look?
