    And the heart of the issue is how pricing is done. It’s much more about how much people will pay fot the product than about how much it costs to fabricate.

    I avoid “buying pink” as much as possible, whether it’s personal care items, clothing and shoes. I actually like the men’s slippers and athletic shoes because they’re a bit more roomy, and men’s outdoor jackets have more actual pockets, and are made with better materials.

    To be fair. Mens haircuts are a breeze in comparison. That’s crazy though, I don’t know how I never noticed this.

    I was actually surprised to buy a pink pc microphone that was the same price as the other color choices! They try to give you the excuse that demand for the color increases it’s price.

    I buy men’s products when I can (deodorant, razors, etc) because they’re always cheaper and work better, but the problem is that they always smell “manly.” So annoying.

    I like that the video is showing that this is/can be a problem but all the people in the video are paid actors so showing a clip for proof can’t actually show you what would be in a super market; and not all shops have this marketing but in the video it says that American business have this pink tax which make people assume that it’s all business, just note this while you watch the video if you can; and yes I am aware that it’s supposed to be somewhat a joke

    It’s impossible to get decent work clothes for women. The fabric is different. I truly do not understand why they can’t just use the same material. I tend to buy mens. I wish I could buy mens shoes cause they have so many better options, but my feet are too small.

    Price theory predicts that men will pay more for things they care more about and less for things they don’t care about. On average, men care less about more things while women care more bout more things. This care is a determining factor in what people are willing to pay. Products marketed to women will ALWAYS be more. One of the root problems of our current, barely restrained capital economy.

    Women’s haircuts are usually more complex and take more time then the average men’s haircut. Also, you can just buy the generic/men’s version of products (razors, shaving cream, diapers). If you want the special/pink version, you have to pay extra.

    Purple and pink were manly colors but in the 20s and 30s marketing changed it over to be girls!
    One needs red roses to make pink and hair cuts are just because women tend to have longer hair and hair salons needs to pay rent and women tend to go more often to the hair salon than men.

    In 1964 my local People’s Drugstore began selling Noxema’s new face cream for women. The jar looked the same as my dad’s Noxema shaving cream. I was an inquisitive thirteen years of age so I compared the ingredients. They were the same except for the dye that made the shaving cream pink. I took the two jars to the pharmacist and asked him what the difference was between the two. He read the labels and said, “thirty-two cents”. That’s when I learned about the economics of gender inequality.

    There’s much more advertisements spent for promoting women’s products so why shouldn’t we expect women’s items to cost more? Please they usually have more fancy details, this call cost more. Advertisement cost for a cover girl etc is much more than a cover man, so yes these are the reasons they cost more. Most men’s products don’t care for details (eg. a shirt) or smell, on the contrary there are usually much more marketing, workmanship, and often research and labour that go into make a women’s. It would be unrealistic to expect they cost the same if one incurred more cost to making it. A few products might be outright discrimination , but to say that about everything with a price difference is over stretching it.

    They’re more expensive because there’s more demand for them. Women use more shampoo, have more clothes, shave more hair, etc… Like the prices are the way they are because the market settled there, there isn’t a team of guys in suits who are like “lets charge more for the women’s products than the men’s products.” Because if they did that, and kept the prices above market price, people just wouldn’t buy them and they would actually lose money. Like I am not conservative, but this is just silly. If the products are really the exact same then just buy the one in the blue box. No one is forcing you to buy the pink box.

    I think, when many people say: what’s the problem just don’t buy pink stuff? The problem is, in my mind if something is marketed for my demographic, it means it’s better for me. Maybe the composition or the construction is slightly different and it will serve me better. If I have to investigate every single product to understand if it’s the same for men and women and, in case, buy the men’s version, I am forced to waste a lot of time as a woman, and that’s still discrimination. It’s not just ‘cuteness’ of the pink that women prefer, like some people is saying. It’s like when consumers demand that certain ingredients are made clear on pack, sure you can read, learn the scientific names of the ingredients you are trying to avoid and check the ingredients list of everything you buy, but that’s not fair for the consumer who doesn’t have time for that, is it?

    The pink tax isn’t gender ‘discrimination’ and frankly isnt a tax at all as women could just choose cheap products instead of the expensive ones being marketed to them. Then marketers wont be able to sell overpriced products to women and everyone is happy. In cases of women’s sanitary products sure they pay more than men but that’s basic supply and demand. If YOU DONT WANT TO PAY FOR IT DONT BUY IT. Whats next? should toilet paper be free for everyone because it’s discriminatory towards the human race? Every individual has different preferences when shopping and we cant just make everything free. And sure there is some shady marketing going on sometimes but as long as people buy those products it will be there.

    The gender pay gap theory is ridiculous. No women arent paid 80 cents pr dollar when doing the same job as a man. STATISTICALLY over a lifetime women are paid 80 cents pr dollar for the same profession as a man but that is because: typically women work less hours over a lifetime than men because they more often than not have different preferences like parental leave to take care of their newborns which leads to them taking care of their babies which also leads to them not WANTING to chase careers as much as men do. This is also a reason for why there are more men in high level jobs oh nooo must be the PaTrIArChy. No different genders typically have different biological and practical preferences which leads to a certain amount of inequality between them. I would argue thats not a big problem in most cases but you are welcome to disagree with me and propose quotas and equality of outcome but remember to do it with low income jobs too;)

    Who exactly forces women to buy pink razors instead of black, blue or orange ones? Nobody does. They buy those pink razors, because they want their razors to be pink? Does a man has to pay less for pink razors than a woman, if he for some reason wants his razors to be pink? No, he has to pay the same money for the same product. Welcome to capitalism, ladies: If you INSIST that your freaking razors HAVE to be pink, than you will HAVE to pay extra for them to be pink. There is no such thing as a “pink tax”, there are just dumb people making dumb decisions and blame others for them.

It’s in a pink box, it’s the same exact active ingredient and formula as the Gentle Laxative by the same brand. The only difference is that the box was pink and it says Women’s on it. Well, that and the price.

    “Shrink and pink” – great description. I’ve seen this segment before and I think it was at least a couple of years back. So what went down with the Pink Tax Repeal Act? Safe to assume it didn’t pass but did it even get close?

    I’m a feminist, but I can also see the business side of this. Statistically, women shop for these particular items more than men, thus they are in higher demand. Anyone that knows economics will tell you that the higher the demand, the higher the cost. Generally, women also go through these “daily” products faster. I’m willing to bet that if this statistic was flipped and men were consuming at a faster rate, purchasing “X” number of creams and soaps for their body, and doing the majority of the shopping, companies would adjust prices to maximize their bottom line. If companies aren’t focused on the $$ and consumer needs, they aren’t doing their job. Not saying some companies aren’t discriminating, but as long as our culture is obsessed with looks and the majority of that obsession stems from females, I don’t see corporations cutting costs because some feel it’s personal.

    While it is easy to buy men’s razors, men’s body wash smells terrible, so does men’s shaving cream, and men’s jeans don’t fit women at all. Oh, and the lack of pockets in women’s clothing is criminal. Yes, pocket discrimination is real and it should be illegal. Women need pockets and we need just as many and we need them just as big as men’s pockets. So no there is no easy way to avoid the pink tax. But yes I usually avoid products marketed specifically for males or females as much as possible just out of principal. And I buy unscented products as much as possible because a lot of women’s products smell awful too.

    Pure fiction! Womens’ items are 99% of the times CHEAPER than mens’.
    The BIC shave packs from the video above cost $4.92 womens’ and $5.97 mens’ at Walmart (regular prices)
    I have actually discussed this with my wife many many years ago. Why is it that womens’ items are always cheaper? I asked her. As an example, I pointed out to some Nike shoes that cost $100 for men and $90 for women (looked identical). We came to the conclusion that this was due to women shopping more often. Men would wear the same shirt for years, while women tend to change their wardrobes more often than men. Since men shopped less, it made sense to overcharge them (made sense for the stores that is; in reality, it is a daylight robbery).
    Those who blindly accept the theme of this video and the idea of some non-existent pink tax, I invite to test your belief:

    Take $1,000 and split into $500. First, shop for a woman. As soon as you spend $500, try to buy exact alternatives for a man. I bet you you will run out of money before you finish

    Women haircuts MAY cost more for a reason. For men, it is a simple shaving locks and evening out with scissors
    For women, there is way too much going on there
    How much does anyone want to bet that a men’s haircut takes much less time to make on average? Have not Googled yet but am ready to bet anyway. That is how confident I am

    I’m pretty sure they price beauty products that way because women tend to really care about that stuff and buy it a lot…so they capitalized on it and made the women stuff cost more…gotta admit its clever…scummy, but clever. I wouldn’t exactly call that specifically discrimination…but its messed up

    I don’t understand how this has anything to do with gender equality. It’s just business, women need some products more than men so demand is created and businessmen take advantage of the new demand and exploit it to make profit.
    It’s just business not discrimination.

    Its funny how people want to pay less for a product they didnt create or invest in, if I cant afford a gold watch im not going to complain about i’ll just buy me a regular one. At the end of the day no one forces anyone to buy certain products theres always the dollar store.

    Women are different and more precious….hence their product should cost more. It feeds your inherent notion that its better than the men’s version, which makes you happier. Some men also prefer women’s products because they have this same notion. Plus, women looove the color pink…experiment: if you place the same women’s product on a shelf, one in blue, with a slightly lower price and the other in pink, with a slightly higher price. See which one sells more? Thus to the producers pink represents; happier client/customers and higher margins…..Men also have staff which have premiums on them because its makes them happier too…

    I HATE gender discrimination and I think we all deserve equal opportunity, however, sometimes the nomenclature and presentation of women’s issues is poorly orchestrated – this is an issue because it ‘muddies the waters’ and the other side of disingenuous people will use this stuff as ammo….

    Is it a tax? A tax is money charged by the government. Is anyone forcing women to buy these products? Do women get charged more for hair work because they tend to get more done to it? Seems like there are just enough dumb consumers that they’re willing to simply shell out more money for smaller pinker items. Sexism problem? Or capitalism problem?

    Also, what is stopping a woman from starting a razor company for women? Seems like there is a pretty big market niche here, so where are all the business owning ladies? Or are they the ones jacking up the price in the first place?
