One Small Ding on the Patriarchy

I was in the drug store, where men’s razors worked out to $2.25 each for a pack of twelve. The pastel pink razors that go with my razor handle would have worked out to a similar price, I think, if I could find a twelve pack, but I couldn’t, so I was stuck buying a smaller, more expensive pack of lady razors. This irked me. I bought the guys razors; they work fine.

Down with pink tax.

    I’ve never heard the term pink tax before, but I love it. The term, not the fact that girl stuff costs more.

    Buying razors is the worst. My husband shaves his head and thinks that the Venus ones work better so now we just buy the big pack of those but in Sweden they female ones often go on sale when the male ones dont so it works out.
