In the age of “safe-space” modern feminism—where Pajama Boys are the expectation, victimhood is rampant, and masculinity is incessantly bashed—equality looks a whole lot like, well, inequality.
In one such example, a Manhattan pharmacy announced on Monday that they will be hitting their male customers with an extra seven percent “man tax”—get this—in the name of “equality.”
Jolie Alony, the owner of the SoHo pharmacy, Thompson Chemists, designed the anti-man scheme as way to "level the playing field" for allegedly victimized women, in reference to the well-debunked “gender wage gap” myth and the so-called “pink tax.” Alony also says she’s making a political statement in support of Hillary Clinton and against Donald Trump. Big surprise there.
"We thought it’d be a great idea with all the political things going on—with Clinton being such a woman and the other guy and his womanizing," said Alony.
"We wanted to share that women deserve to get a break, and men deserve to be charged 7 percent more. Women are spending more in general and we make less, so we deserve to have a break," she added.
On Monday, the pharmacy proudly boasted the following signs in their windows: "New store policy: All Female Customers Shop Tax Free" and "All Male Customers Are Subject to a 7% Man Tax," the former in pink and the latter in blue, fittingly.
Alony lamented the "pink tax"—the supposed extra amount of money women are charged for certain female products or services—saying it widens income disparity and adds an undue burden on females, which needs to be "rectified."
The pharmacy owner says she’s received varied reactions to her new anti-man policy. Some couples "were a little upset about it, saying, ‘F*** you,’ ‘You’re being a sexist,’ and to get a lawyer," she said, while others were "entertained" by her signs.
"We live in a big world, and I think we need to raise awareness," Alony added.
Alony is essentially cutting out sales tax for her female customers, which she is reportedly paying for out of her own pocket.
There is still no word on how this progressive anti-man tax will effect transgender customers.
