Pointlessly Gendered Products

This board is a collection of products separated into male and female versions. Sound innocuous? Here's why it's a problem and who it hurts: http://thesocietypages.org/socimages/2015/01/20/five-reasons-why-pointlessly-gendered-products-are-a-problem/

    If it's not actually bulletproof, it's pointless. Masculinity is hilarious.

    Fashion is as pointless as you make it. Dont go masculinitybashing.

    OK, in all fairness, femininity is hilarious too. Gendered products are almost all completely silly. But in particular, I find the trend of military gear for non-military purposes a little creepy.

    I saw this item yesterday and thought "When will this show up on Sociological Images?" Haha.

    On the bright side, many girls don't self select science and engineering as they get older, so having a science kit just for them *might* encourage them to see that science can be fun and interesting

    Considering misogynistic attitudes discourage men from having emotions, feeling low, crying and seeking therapy (because all that is seen as week and feminine and heaven help them if they are like a woman) having male-targeted therapy and advertising that says that it is normal for men to feel crappy is a pretty important thing.

    I'd agree with Sophie on this one. This seems different than "manly" yogurt.
