Aiight, this has been swimming roond my heed for a wee while noo.

When I go down Buchanan Street, Argyle, whatever, I've kept an eye on how the crisis has been hitting the high street. And fair enough, some shops went down the toilet, but hey, some are still going pretty strong.

What seems to be going strong are shoe shops. There's one in every corner. And what more? Clothes shops. For chicks.

Made me think, "Well, shit, without women, the high street would be empty."

Which begs the question of this thread: Who spends more money on themselves - men or women?

Depends, a pristine virgin will set you back a bit more than a - hold on
oh right

er, women, I guess
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

is there any higher cost than the human price placed on the sexualisation of females everywhere by the patriarchy? i think not. men created the fallacy of 'expensive women' for their own greedy purposes. men are more expensive

Not if you make it out of papier-mâché.
Why do you think I've been nicking a Metro from the bus every morning?

Depends on the person but generally women probably spend more on clothing, shoes, make up and all that.

What my gf spends on her clothes, I can quadriple that with my car mods easily.

please, i'm a 2nd level pansexual who doesn't see the world through discriminatory lenses like those bought up in a mysognistic culture (read: the western world). i don't see genders so i wouldnt know if ive ever been out with one. because im not sexist
#19
I was about to say women but then I had to sit back and think about a few things.
My dad, for example spends excessive quantities on motorbikes.
So when it comes down to it, it's actually kind of equal
I have nothing important to say

I haven't spent money on clothes in over a year (though I do need some new boxers).

I have, however, spent approximately 1500€ on musical equipment and hardware for my computer.

I agree that men and women "cost" about the same, just differently.

Women.


Ooh crap, now those feminist b*tches will come after me and show me their tits.

It really depends I guess, since there are plenty of stores geared towards men's wants and women's wants.

From my experience I would say girls may spend more if they keep their clothes/accessories/whatever updated. Guys may buy bigger and fewer things. I think it generally evens out, the money just goes to different things.

This. My mother buys a shit tonne of clothes, books and accesoires, but my dad usually has this 1 big purchase every month.

Most of the time though my mother insists on that purchase so I don't know.

#30
Definitely women. How is this even a debate?

Women require you to buy a f*cking shiny rock that does F*CKING NOTHING for like $5000 because "it looks nice". What f*cking guy would do that?

Women earn money for clothes and cosmetics.
Men earn money for clothes, razors, cream and aftershave, and then there's mortgage, family car, gas and light, tap water, food, beverages, alcoholic beverages, insurance, tax, printing paper, ink cartridges, you get the idea.

Exceptions excluded.

It's more about what the money is spent on than whether it's spended or not. So the next time someone says "Chivalry is dead", here's the counter-argument.

Tis true, no woman has ever had to pay a mortgage or gas bill.
