Gender has been a hotly debated topic for some time now. For some people this is great, in-depth discussions about the injustices and societal imbalances caused by outdated gender norms are long overdue. For others it is unnecessary, virtue-signaling nonsense that gets in the way of more pressing issues. If you have any doubts about gender, just look inside your pants and carry on with your life.

Ok.... men don't like to shop. They don't want to smell 5million shampoo bottles, before they decide to go with the first one, like most of us girls do. They want to go into the store, grab a shampoo, any shampoo, and get the eff out. So actually this just shows you how easy men are (no offense gentlemen :) )And if we think about it... is it really fair that only women are pictured on anti wrinkle cream? What if a man wants to be wrinkle free? And what if a man wants to smell like strawberry shortcake? How fair is it to them that they only have one tiny section at Walgreens?
