What if every woman stopped buying the pink version and bought the “male” equivalent?

Pretty funny and definitely something to be addressed. One thing that makes you go hmmm is, of women pay more than men 42% of the time would that mean men pay more than women 58% of the time? As a man, I am looking forward to men's clothing to become cheaper, like women's clothing. :‐P

2:04 "Women are making 80 cents for every dollar earned by a man to do the same job." That's false. Women make 98 cents for every dollar a man makes to do the SAME job. The 80 cents refers to the 20 cent difference in median incomes across all jobs.

Why do we need companies to stop doing this, just boycott the products you don't like..they'll just follow suit once they realize no one buys their overprized pink products anymore

Well... frankly, if there's identical item available with less pink and it's cheaper... get the less pink one... Though... there are items that don't have the less pink version cheaper... so I give you that...

So we're even brainwashing everyone to believe that pink is a feminine colour and blue is a masculine one? I'm sorry but this video was a joke if it meant to highlight women difficulties when it comes to equal pay. Terrible joke too

Okay at this point just call everything equal and say a man is a woman and a woman is a man 🤦 how can you ask for equality when everyone is clearly NOT Equal?

"Pink tax" is a bit misleading. It's not like the government is forcing these manufacturers to overcharge women. At the end of the day, if you want the government to protect your interests, you're a socialist. Don't see it as an insult, recognize that federal oversight is what keeps companies from charge $6000 a razor and what we have right now isn't federal oversight. That's why these companies are allowed to do this legally.

Regarding Haircuts, Men get their hair cut more often than women. I had this conversation with a group of friends, and women will go 3-4 months without a haircut, men will go every 2-3 weeks. I did a little Googling, and on average it's $34 for men and $45 for women, but when you count the frequency men get their hair cut, say conservatively every 3 weeks in a 3 month period (4 weeks per month), a man will have spent $34x4, which equals $136. Bill Burr said it best, (paraphrasing) Women make less money than men as an insurance policy... If a ship is sinking, Women and children first, Men last. If a building is burning, women and children first while the guy is left holding the door with his pant leg on fire. All joking aside, tell your legislature to push for a ban on "Pay Secrecy" within companies. While it doesn't need to be a public record, you should be allowed to go to your HR and ask to compare your salary to those who do the same job as you. Keep in mind the years of experience, education, and tenure one has at a company all come into play; you cannot expect Jane Doe fresh out of college to be making as much as anyone regardless of gender who has 20 years of experience and 10 years at that same job.

Ah, first world problems...when you are so secure in life you need to INVENT problems. Here let me fix these for you... Hmm, video shows razors, drugs, diapers, etc for men are EXACTLY the same as those for women. SOLUTION: Buy the men's product. You're welcome. Imaginary problem fixed. Let me clue you in on advertising, you DON'T have to buy what they tell you to buy. Shocking :o

The thing is, that when It comes to those things men don't care. They will get the cheapest thing possible. Go to a clothing store. why is the women's section 5 time the size of the men's section? Go to a bar or a dance club, there's no men's night where men get in free and women pay full price. It's not discrimination, it consumerism. Think before you buy. The men's version is just the no frills generic version. It's like you're saying women can't read, research, and choose. That's sexist.

The pink tax is very surprising, but the solution is not to create a law or call corporate, that is ridiculous. They take advantage of it because there is a market for pink products. The market is created and sustained by the consumers. There are whole industries sustained just by women: make up, clothing, shoes, accessories, handbags, hair/nail/skin care, plastic surgery, fashion, etc. They exist because there is a strong demand that is more than willing to pay the extra charge. In fact the higher price is linked to status so is part of the attraction. The solution, individually, is easy: do not to buy the more expensive products. But globally is impossible, you would need to change women's culture.

If the difference is really in the colour, why not buy the mens’ and vote with your dollar. Or does pink = women? And since when are you expecting marketing to be ethical? XD Also, why only look at women, there are plenty of products that tend to be more expensive for men, e.g. car insurance (not everywhere, but in many places), work clothing, sports equipment, etc. where’s the outrage? Why only pink tax?

Maayybe, just, maybe because women are more specific towards a certain color and men simply don't care about color(in general). So if change blue to green, boys wouldn't care. But if you turn pink to purple girls will freak out. It's not sexism it's economics.

It's a tax on women who arent smart enough to buy the affordable thing, because a man cant buy pink razors for a girl with her money, but a smart woman will pay less for a blue razor with a man's money.

Tbh, as I passed from rightwing to leftwing, from male to female, I have never changed my views on the pink tax. It's a natural result of a free market, it isn't any conspiracy, corporations gonna divide people and sell them products at the most convenient price. The only fair way to solve this problem would be to just starting buying gender-neutral stuff to force the hand of corpos, but that's not going to happen.

HaHaHa, there's a women pay more, because not only do they tolerate it, they embrace it. Don't like it? Stop hating men in every single way possible, and maybe embrace some of what men are. Ewww, could never do that though, would lose our scapegoat. Want the ultimate "pink" tax? Men die 10 years younger than you, as a result of PUTTING UP with you.

@Project Pitchfork if they aren't willing, then they would just get the men's razor instead of the women's razor because they are identical products. But if they're willing to pay for the extra colors and packaging, then obviously companies will raise prices to reflect that.

Project Pitchfork
Project Pitchfork 4 日 前
Maybe because the fact that woman have to buy men products because their own are mkre expensive is kind of discriminating too. It's the same but if you already market stuff for woman and men seperatly, making the products for woman so have to buy men products, is discriminating. Why? Because it's marketed for men. And while marketing is just marketing it's also symbolic that woman can't buy their "own" products. So either get rid of tgat or just don't market tge same stuff seperatly for men and woman at all.

The pink tax is bullisht. It doesn’t exist.
