And this gender tax issue seems to have trickled all the way down to the kiddy section too! A Radio Flyer scooter at Target is $24.99 for a red one and $49.99 for a pink one. Despite the store “throwing away” gender labeled aisles, it’s still pretty obvious that the “girly” color costs more.

So ladies, if you’re planning to save some money these days — it’s probably time to start thinking like a man.
