40 Products That Are Still Pointlessly Gendered

Published 3 weeks ago

It always baffles me when I see the products at the supermarket, like razors or lotion, categorised according to gender. Why just change the colour and increase the price just a bit more for the female version of the same identical product? Well, that confusion is just a glimpse into the world of needlessly gendered items found in stores.

We’ve compiled some of the most absurd instances where companies unnecessarily assign gender to products. So, sit back, scroll below to check out the most outrageous examples, and feel free to share your thoughts and experiences in the comments sections.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
