I agree with many of these. But what can you do?

You believe in an invisible god, and dismiss people who say they are trans? Really?

Very simple. If everyone quits buying them the price will come down.
At my age a Life In Prison sentence is not much of a detrrent.

women pay more for a lot of things because they tend to be loyal to the brand, and fem hygiene products? pretty prone there I think

they also pay more for some things because the cost of returning them has to be part of the price

Probably will substitute for a condom as well.

True story. I had a small leak near the flashing on the roof of my house. The wife was going to Walgreens so I tagged along. I picked up a can of Flex Seal and put it in her basket. She goes up to check out and has two items in the basket. A box of tampons and a can of Flex Seal. The clerk just stared at her, I then realized why and actually dropped to my knees laughing. The wife didn't find it funny at all.

I work for Walgreens myself and I wouldn't stare like that Clerk did. That's unprofessional. I'd just ring up the tampons and the Flex Seal with no judgement. 😐

My oldest relative had hearing aides that cost around $6000 about 5 years ago. Now I see hearing aide ads, as they made it possible to buy withot prescription.

(Looks at smartphone, and still shaking head at current costs)

Hard to believe they haven't been way overpriced for years.
