I was running on the treadmill, with my phone sitting in the cup holder with my headphones plugged into it. I get going at a decent speed when my arm catches the headphone cord and my phone flies out of the cup holder, onto the treadmill, and shoots across the room. My immediate reaction? Screaming “FUCK” as loud as possible in the middle of a quiet gym. Also my phone screen was shattered and I had to do a very demoralizing walk of shame out the door.
Response to 21 Pointlessly Gendered Products:
I consider myself to be a pretty staunch feminist, but I don’t see anything wrong with making products pink. The toolset, or the electric razor….if a woman likes pink, she’ll like those things. And if she doesn’t, she’ll buy something else. And it’s ok to make girly toys….it’s just not ok to force those on your little girl if she’d rather play with action figures. My two year old, despite me trying to buy her gender-neutral toys, is a GIRL in all senses of the word. She loves princesses and purses and shoes and guess what? That’s ok because she’s being herself!
