Feminists have a lot on their plates. Seems like they prefer it that way, too. It’s how they maintain their
politically hefty figures (see Dear Fat Feminists… No Thanks [feat. Tess Holliday] and ‘Plus Size’ YouTuber Now Demands Disney Create Fat Princesses…). One of the major feminist “issues?” The wage gap. See, according to feminists, the patriarchy keeps women down by paying them less than men. Because reasons.
So a NYC pharmacy recently decided to fight against that sexism… By being waaay sexist.
One Manhattan pharmacy is trying to solve [the wage] gap with a 7 percent man tax. Owner Jolie Alony [said] “We thought it’d be a great idea with all the political things going on – with Clinton being such a woman and the other guy and his womanizing,” she said.
Citing the “pink tax,” she said, “We wanted to share that women deserve to get a break, and men deserve to be charged 7 percent more. Women are spending more in general and we make less, so we deserve to have a break.”
Alony says it’s up in the air how long the promotion will last, especially since “the disclosure of differing prices or fees based upon gender by a retail service establishment” is a violation of New York City pricing laws.
Women in New York already get a break (see ‘My Body, Your Tax Dollar?’ NY de Blasio Signs Law Mandating ‘Free’ Tampons…). Also, generalizing an entire group of people and treating them poorly because of their gender? Sounds a lot like what feminists claim to hate. Color me confused. For instance, if a store shamelessly charged women more and men less for a political cause, methinks feminists would have a bit of a problem with it.
By the way, notice that little footnote? It’s the one that says it’s illegal to charge more for goods based on gender. Or what’s also referred to as “discrimination.” Feminists discriminate whilst also disavowing discrimination. They want to have their cake, and eat a dozen too. Remind me again how feminism is more than just man-hating and cake-eating? Because there seems to be a lot of man-hating, and even more cake-eating. Hence Tess Holliday, Lena Dunham, and Amy Schumer. Just an observation.
All this in the name of solving the wage gap. Good news, feminists: your plight is over… Because the wage gap doesn’t exist. Unless, of course, you’re the ones creating it. For “equality.”
