Top 5 Ridiculous ‘Just for Women’ Products

Top 5 Ridiculous ‘Just for Women’ Products

Editors note:This post is a Care2 favorite, back by popular demand. It was originally posted on November 5, 2012. Enjoy!

When you walk into a children’s toy store you see a clear separation between the boys and girls toys. Pink for the girls on one side; blue for the boys on another.

Can you imagine that such a separation exists well into adulthood?

Well, take a look at the following “women friendly” (aka sexist) products to see the tired pink gender stereotypes played out for women consumers today.

1. Fujitsu “Flora Kiss” Laptop

The Fujitsu Japanese company has created a line of laptops exclusively for women that comes in colors like feminine pink, elegant white and luxury brown. According to the website, the laptop features a flip latch to easily open the display, “even by users with long fingernails.”

The laptop has other “feminine” touches like a pearl accented power button, diamond-cut stones on the caps lock key and gold trim on the keyboard. The laptop also comes with custom-designed applications including a digital scrapbook, personalized diary and daily horoscope.

Who knew women needed pearl and diamond accents to operate a laptop?

Hi, H. Perhaps some women genuinely like pink and "girly" stuff, but how much of it is manufactured by marketing? At the turn of the 20th century, pink was considered a strong manly colour.

Some women genuinely like "pink" or "girly" stuff though, those women should not be criticized for their interests either, nobody should be.

HaHahahaha,,, this article cracked me up. They might be For Women,but they have
Man written all over them.

Mary Kay will probably love the car the though.

I don't understand why this is such a problem, seems silly. Loved the Ellen bit, though.

Does this mean I can't drink regular male beer and eat regular male candy? ;)
