10 things women should never buy, according to ridiculously gendered advertising

Not only are there ridiculous super useful items made to cater specifically to the manliest of men, if you obey the instructions of brands and advertisers there are also places women ought not venture, and products which women should never, ever try.

Because certain things are for men, and for men only.

3. Muirfield Golf Club, Scotland

Muirfield Golf Club recently landed in hot water after members voted to keep an antiquated membership policy which disallows women from being full members of the £220-a-round golf club.

We can only assume that having female members will distract all of the men from their game.

5. Broetry

Poetry, but better, because beer and chicken wings and football.

All of which are quite obviously men things.

6. Cars

7. Man therapy

Like therapy, but without the pesky girl emotions.

8. Dude Wipes

For man dirt. Cleanliness is now a man-only zone, people.

9. McDonald's sausage & bacon sandwich

10. Libido-enhancing drugs

Men have Viagra, and the little blue pill works wonders... and women?
