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.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.

Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do

I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs

It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
