I just end up buying the gender-neutral product or overlook that I’m grabbing a men’s razor in lieu of something pink. But I agree, I shouldn’t have to be that mindful of it. Women, on average, make less (when applying race, statistically black and Hispanic women even less), so to put us in the position where we’re having to spend our hard earned cash on things marketed higher simply because we’re female (and I mean for clothing and everyday services), is a frustrating example of how the society machine works against us.
