I’ll show you “mansize”
Okay folks, roll up your sleeves, it’s time for some feminist outrage!
Why, oh why, has Kleenex felt it necessary to gender-identify tissues? This is preposterous! My nose is just as runny, my snot just as germy, and my blowing just as powerful (excuse the double entendre) as any man! There is absolutely no reason to create a special gender-oriented tissue.
See the pictures we snapped at the store recently. The “man size” tissues are HUGE compared to a regular, standard size, which has suddenly been branded “Feel Me, I’m gorgeous”. Can anyone at Kleenex say sexist? So not only do men get bigger, stronger tissues, but female tissues exist only to be felt, because they’re nice and soft, just like women.
I have to say, the only positive I can see is that at least the boxes aren’t color coordinated blue and pink. That would be the ultimate disgrace in marketing.
I would also like to post a disclaimer. I am a passionate person. I have passionate opinions. Sometimes people are uncomfortable with this. I have created a special “Speaker’s Corner” tag for these ranting posts of mine — feel free to ignore them.
