  • I wonder if the feminine products sell more. Could be supply and demand. This is a "joke" news channel. I'd look for other factors before taking it at face value.

  • I work for a toy company that makes pink versions of our popular toys, they are identical in every single way, not one difference just the coloration, we do however sell them at the exact same COST and retail price on our own websites and amazon, however retailers mark up the pink products. Here's another fun fact: we sell more of the pink versions. when we decided to go gender neutral, we got backlash from moms online, sales plumeted. we brought the pink back. they sell like hot cakes. at high prices. at retailers. So I blame consumers. STOP BUYING PINK PRODUCTS. JUST STOP! GENDER IS A CONSTRUCT TEAR IT APART!

  • I stop buy pink years ago. I came across one woman's review over a men razor/shaver that she used. I was floor to hear about a pink tax just for women. She told the rep. don't make one for women. Keep everything the same. She explained in her review about the pink tax. Today I walk in men's shoes. Men this or that. If is produce for men am buy it. I sew the boxers into boy short. Okay. I find away around it.

  • If women on average get less pay than men, and if products for women on average cost more than for men, then who is actually paying for those products? It has to be men, otherwise we have to assume that women on average use less products, which I don't think is the case.

  • If you want to know what the pink tax is ask Bill Burr..🤣 it's a surcharge for getting saved with the kids while the men get to go down with the ship and keep . Run into a burning building to save your dog, push your car, put out the trash, confront an armed burglar at 2am while you hide under the bed with the kids..😂😂😅😅 that's what pink tax is..

  • If it’s the same product why don’t women just buy the cheaper one? Ohhhh you mean to tell me it’s actually not the same product and that female’s products contain additional features that make them more expensive to manufacture and that women are actually willing to pay extra for these additional features as evidenced by them continuing to buy the products? Funny.

  • The haircut thing is silly, of course it costs more . The cut for men takes only half an hour at the most and ladies' takes hours n hours. But yes just because certain items are pink it shouldn't cost more.

  • I agree that for essentially the exact same product it would be fair if the price was the same. It would be difficult to force price controls in a free economy. It’s more likely that a new company could beat out an older company by offering lower prices (or a better product at the same price). Certain things like haircuts though are probably based on the time and complexity of the service. I welcome the opportunity to be corrected and would love to hear what you think.

  • "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.

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?
