Mansized Kleenex, Chick Beer, Bronuts, and much more.

2614

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 was lucky enough to meet MaryEllen Reider over a decade ago as a fellow freshman in college.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
