Discontinue your line of sexist gardening gloves

Coles currently sell two lines of gardening gloves, the "Men's Heavy Duty Garden Gloves" and the "Ladies' Cotton Garden Gloves". What the?!

Newsflash, Coles: WOMEN GET DIRTY IN THE GARDEN. When undertaking tasks such as weeding, pruning, nailing fences, digging holes (yes - we can dig holes) and killing redbacks, just like men, we "ladies" require a glove made of something more than white cotton.

 

Letter to
Coles Supermarkets
Dear Coles,

Please discontinue your line of sexist gardening gloves and instead sell garden gloves in a manner that does not stereotype and offend the female sex.

What were you thinking when you created a specific "ladies" gardening glove and then manufactured it out of white cotton?! Did you think we ladies just pranced about the garden playing with petals?

For your information, WOMEN GET DIRTY IN THE GARDEN. When undertaking tasks such as weeding, pruning, nailing fences, digging holes (yes - we can dig holes) and killing redbacks, just like men, we "ladies" require a gardening glove made of something more than white cotton. Such as a gardening glove that looks exactly like the one you market as "men's" but which, in fact, is just a proper gardening glove.

Thanks!

P.S. Until you stop marketing to me as if I am a moron (by gendering your clearly genderless products) I will be steering clear of your store.
