I recently learned about what a Pink Tax is. This is something I strongly disagree with and I would like to share what I found with you so you can make your own decision on your stance.

According to Investopia, 

The pink tax is not a tax in the literal sense. It refers to how women pay more for the same, or similar, products and services than men.

This is a tax that some states have on feminine products, meaning the price is more for things like razors, shampoo, soaps, anything that is for a female body.

Gender based pricing has been something at the forefront of the equality movement.

This is not a legitimate or legal tax, you won't find this on the "tax books." It is said that fem products tend to cost more and some states have turned this into a tax.

So we, as women, will pay more for a box of razors then a man will. Not cool.

This is an unfortunate mark-up in products, goods and services that are promoted towards women. Which in turn means that men will spend way less on similar products, goods and services.

Now, where does Maine stand?

Well, I have had trouble finding anything official about Maine supporting this Pink Tax, but I did take a look at various pricing on health products.

At Walmart, Men's 2 pack of Gillette razors are less expensive then woman's Gillette razors.

So, even though it's a little sneaky, it seems to be happening here. But I need you help to uncover this tax. Have you seen gender pricing to be unequal when buying for yourself and your husband or partner?
