Only in New York City could a feminist pharmacy owner try and make a political point about gender inequality by charging men more than women. 

Two signs now hang in the windows of Thompson Chemists in the SoHo district that say, “All female customers shop tax free” and the other, “All male customers are subject to a 7% man tax.”

A confused customer posted the signs on Twitter:

The shop’s owner, Jolie Alony, believes in the very mythical “gender wage gap.” But as one of the misinformed, Alony is on a crusade to “level the playing field” between men and women. No, really! It’s head scratching stuff, that’s for sure.

She is also hoping it makes a clear statement about the election:

“We thought it’d be a great idea with all the political things going on—with Clinton being such a woman and the other guy and his womanizing. We wanted to share that women deserve to get a break, and men deserve to be charged 7 percent more. Women are spending more in general and we make less, so we deserve to have a break.”

Equality through inequality. It’s the liberal way!

As a side note, I wonder how Alony plans on handling her transgender customers. Progressivism is hard.
