Products That Are Pointlessly Gendered

Glue For Girls


In 2014, the Pritt glue company released a pink glue stick that was labeled as being for girls. Of course, Twitter was up in arms about this product release and it’s easy to see why. In addition to being for girls, it is also clearly marketed for children which makes sense since the majority of individuals using glue sticks are probably elementary school kids. Needless to say, it’s really not necessary to assign a gender to glue as it definitely has the same function regardless of its boy or girl label. The company would probably be better off making the glue stick in different colors and then everyone could choose which color they like best regardless of their gender!
