33 Unnecessary Gender Specific Products

We live in a world where colors, toys, clothing, and much more are thrown at boys and girls the second they are born. “Pink is for girls, and blue is for boys.” “Princesses are for girls, and trucks are for boys.” I could go on and on with things that are generally assumed for a certain gender. While many of these go back years and years, more and more is arising. Here, I have collected for you, a number of unnecessarily gender specific products.

1. Ear plugs


2. Tea

3. Kleenex

4. Razors

5. Beer

6. Yogurt

7. Socks

8. "Laptops"

9. Face masks

10. M&Ms

11. Chips


12. Bath time

13. Baby/children's clothes

14. Q-tips

15. The Earth


16. Earphones

17. Crowns

18. Cheese

19. Nurse/doctor kits

20. Tape


21. Laundry products


22. Tinkertoys

23. Baby harnesses

24. Magnets

25. Pens


26. Shower Gel

27. Toy guns

28. Squirrel underpants

29. Origami

30. Nail polish

31. Candles

32. Puzzles

33. Donuts

In conclusion, I am not actually offended by most of these items, and I understand that some even have good motives. So, if you want, go out and buy yourself some pink ear plugs or girl squirrel underpants. Just do not let these items limit you. Be who you truly are, and enjoy what you enjoy most, regardless of what society may tell you.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
