Of *course* tape needs to be gendered. What was I thinking to not expect this? Interestingly, the pink girls’ tape was about 30% cheaper than the regular clear kind. I’d like to think this is an attempt at a creative and progressive response to the pay gap, but somehow I doubt that.

And yes, Dear Reader, I did buy it for Jender-Son. I am nothing if not cheap.
