Response to 16 Products That Women Don’t Really Want:
Have I bought things that are pink? Sure, nothing wrong with the color itself. My problem is that advertisers are using outdated gender stereotypes to try to seduce women into buying things, which is really an insult to our intelligence. Want women to buy something? Slap a pink label on it. I’d like to think women are more savvy shoppers than that. Have you looked in a children’s toy department lately? Boys have a variety of colors at their disposal, while the girls’ section looks like it’s been hosed down in Pepto Bismol. Where are their choices? It feeds into the notion that pink = femininity and in the off chance that you like another color, you are not part of the group. That’s my 2 cents.
