Did you know that there is a laptop, pen, beer, chocolate bar and even a car specifically designed for women?
What makes these products so woman friendly? Well, lots of pink of course and many other “feminine” features that will make you roll your eyes again and again.
Adding insult to injury I’ve come across another 6 ridiculous products specially made with a woman in mind. Take a look for yourself at the list below and decide which is the most ridiculous (I’m partial to the gloves).
1. Pretty Tools
You wouldn’t think the words “dainty” and “hammer” would go together, right?
For all you women, you can purchase your very own Pretty Tools (pictured above) and “use the dainty hammer to take out your frustrations with style” or “bury your troubles with the cheeky little garden spade.”
The tools for your home, office, garden and garage come in floral, paisley and safari designs to “match your mood.” I don’t know about you, but when I want to get a job done, I don’t care what the tools look like; they just need to work.
2. Pink Tools
If floral, paisley or safari prints don’t suit your mood, maybe pink will do.
At Sears you will find a large variety of pink tools for your choosing, including a 30-piece pink tool set with “pink-accented soft grip handles that make this set fun and comfortable to use.”
You can also find a pink storage box, pink tool chest, pink tool belt, pink cordless drill and case, and much, much more.
I expect this kind of pinkification in a toy store or the baby aisle of department store, but Sears, too?

When you’re done using your pink and floral tools around the house, you are going to need a good night’s rest. But what if you’re single or your loved one is out of town?
Well, that’s where the Dream Man Arm Pillow comes in.
“Cuddle up to this cotton man arm pillow for a restful and comforting sleep…This arm pillow is soft and cozy and will wrap around your body to keep you nice and warm when you don’t want to sleep alone…providing a secure sense of comfort.”
The notion that a woman needs a man in bed to feel a “sense of comfort” or to have a “restful and comforting sleep” is entirely sexist, and this product is completely ridiculous.

4. Pump Gloves
Add pumping gas to the list of things women can’t do without a man. Until now! That is if you purchase your very own set of Pump Gloves, a “new line of stylish and protective gloves to keep a woman’s hands safe from the ‘Gunk at the Gas Pump.’”
The gloves are “designed to protect a woman’s hands and manicure” and “add comfort and class to pumping gas.”
What about pumping gloves for men? Don’t they deserve to add comfort and class to their pumping gas experience? (Sounds ridiculous, am I right?)

5. Sleep Pretty in Pink Ear Plugs
Anyone can use ear plugs, right?
Seems like a really gender neutral product, but not anymore with the introduction of Sleep Pretty in Pink Ear Plugs, the first pink brand which is now the number one selling brand of foam ear plugs in the U.S.
With such popularity you would think it would make good business sense to market to both men and women, but then they would have to drop the pink branding.

6. Flying Lady Golf Balls
I’ve never played golf, but I guess now I can because there is a pink golf ball made just for me.
It is specially designed to react better with a slower swing (which I would have as a woman, of course). Plus, it’s pink, which as a woman is naturally my favorite color.
Now I wonder if there are any pink golf bags or clubs that I can get to match my pink golf balls?
