Cards Against Humanity fight the pink tax with ‘for her’ edition


So, we're all familiar with pink tax right?

It's all that extra cash companies love to charge for the floral scented shower gel you never even wanted. 

Well, Cards Against Humanity are fighting back against this inequality with a pink edition of their card game that costs $5.00 more than the original – no, really.

“Everyone hates it when the men retire to the parlor to discuss the economy and the various issues of the day,’ reads the game’s description. 'What are us ladies supposed to do?'”

“Now there’s an answer. Cards Against Humanity for Her. It’s exactly the same as the original Cards Against Humanity game, but the box is pink and it costs $5 more.”

The description goes on to explain that the ‘for her’ edition is "there for you when you need a good cry, listens to your problems without offering any suggestions and pairs nicely with a glass of chilled white wine." 

"Perfect on your coffee table or bookshelf. Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Brunch. Cheat day. Nasty women. Yaaaaaaaas queen! Good vibes only. Activated charcoal. Gender Reveal Party. Avocado face peels. You’re such a Miranda. Paleo."

Now, if you're familiar with the game, you'll probably have sensed the sarcastic undertones a mile off, but for anyone who is still shaking their fist in disgust, know that it's all for a good cause.

The profits from this satirical take on women's rights will got to Emily's List, a committee focused on getting more women into politics.

Cards Against Humanity have also come out with a period pack, containing ’30 new cards all written while we were on our periods’- which let's be real, can only be a good thing.
