Irresponsible reply from ebay.in
“eBay does not, in any way, encourage any bias or discrimination basis race, gender, age or other characteristics. This is purely an attempt to provide, what we feel are, attractive deals and variety relevant to men and women”. Also this is just a merchandising segmentation approach. Trust this clarifies your concerns.
Dear Ms. Seema,
Thanks for the clarification after probably the 'firmly raised voice' at the tollfree today. I / we are quite aware of these kind of legal terminologies & explanations given by the business groups. //As just a merchandising segmentation approach // - why don't you caption it as 'Techie Gadgets' 'Life style Products' which rather directly explains the category, rather than 'coining' it with discriminating content, which definitely is framed on the basis of 'sexual' identity created by the Social Institution. The General Intellect is carried away by the 'casting' that is already existing in the society created by Male Chauvinism and so they don't recognize such 'sensitive' discrimination. How do 'you' or your organization conclude what is relevant for 'Men' & 'Women'...Majority is conditioned by framed ideologies, and so they could be wrong...so
pl don't give me explanation saying Majority feels so...etc... etc...
If the discriminating content is not removed, I am sorry to say that M.A.S.E.S would take it to next level..
thanks for responding,
