There’s been some push back from feminists over the last few years about how women’s services and beauty products are more expensive than men’s, even though they are nearly the same.
Activists are trying to get rid of the “pink tax” and while I can see dropping the tax on things like feminine hygiene products because those are necessary items, it seems silly to me to protest because your body wash is more expensive than the men’s version.
Now, it would seem, the feminists are upset over the price difference in a women’s haircut vs. a men’s hair cut.
Never mind that women often have twice as much hair! And Eve Peyser is especially upset with that, to the point that she had to use all those clapping hand emojis!

These prices are EXTREME for any gender!! Not just men. Who pays $60 to get a couple inches buzzed off??? New Yorkers are ridiculous.
When my hubs gets a haircut it’s with a motorized trimmer. When I get a haircut it’s layers and clips and bleach and tone and usually two plus hours and definitely not with a trimmer. 🙄 https://t.co/ntplDbSe3p

I would shave my head bald before I paid $60 for a haircut https://t.co/TR782ujPCj

What man would spend $60 on a haircut? Buy some trimmers for 20 bucks & do it yourself for the next several decades. https://t.co/TI0EoEDsV8

When people tried to point out that women have more hair, she switched gears to complain about how the services she wants aren’t available.
i get that women's haircuts take longer bc they wash and dry your hair for you… but i wish they'd sell those services separately bc i want a cheap 10 minute haircut without all the frills 😭

Maybe someone should check her privilege because nobody I know pays that for a trim. Color, cut and style, yes but not a wash and cut.
