Gender is like a mythological, fantastical creature of our world. It dictates our society, in the most unnecessary ways thinkable. Public Service Announcement: Gender is a social construct! Gender is constantly being used as an advertisement tool. By making a everyday house-hold item unnecessarily made "for men," the company is targeting their men customers by threatening them and saying that, if they don't use the product specifically "designed for men" then their own masculinity will be put into question. Society has already conditioned these male customers into thinking that there is only one way of being masculine, and if you let anyone know that you do not fit perfectly into those toxic guidelines, then something is wrong with you. There is so much violence against women LGBTQ+ folk and even heterosexual cis men who step outside society's rules of our toxic masculinity culture. These unnecessarily gendered products are just a piece of the sexist, toxic rape culture we have created but they still perpetuate the harmful cycle.
