ebay.in waits for its sellers to answer

With great amount of sadness I would like to share that majority of the 'business' groups never fail to look at women as mere products of sex appeal & they don't even consider the queer group...

the kind of replies I get from the sellers in favor of ebay is even more insisting me to fight for it..

another seller response:rajelektroniks

@maseskotravai...

What is gender bias in trying to promote items of use by a specific gender, yes it is true that woman do not use aftershave as men do not wear a bra so that selling point will be there alway. It is Not gender bias it is gender differentiation.

I cannot understand what is there to crib about when God himself has created the 2 species distinctly different, so yes gender differentiation will always be present in our society.

I am sure that there are many areas where you can do more meaningful work related to your cause than trying to tell a shopping site like ebay to mend its ways.

PS: would request you to please tone down your response when answering to senior sellers on ebay. We are not here to take crap like "...selling yourself".

@rajelelectroniks,

I am quite impressed by your findings about what men use & women use...both the products mentioned by you may be used by the queer people...moreover talk about bra as 'bra', 'shaving cream' as shaving cream...the consumers can decide which gender it will be applicable...

I don't believe in GOD, so all the more reason to fight against the 'Human constructed ideologies'..you are still talking just about the binary elements in the society..men / women...

you also have the equal opportunity to refrain from telling me what is meaningful work...let ebay give me an answer.

I don't believe in seniority etc., unless they have respect for people from whom they demand so....

'if selling yourself' is crap - 'for him' & 'for her' coinage & showing products based on constructed gender discrimination is equally crap & inhuman.....

p.s: pl check the gender quide of ebay...
