I assume that some men will not care about L'eggs discrimination against men. They will continue to buy L'eggs hosiery.
Perhaps they will have the best success in finding the best products for their needs, when they buy L'eggs. Since hosiery can cost a lot after many purchases, I can understand why they would avoid other brands, that might not work well for these guys.
Also, there is the shipping cost of other brands, or even the location of other brands. Maybe another brand costs a few dollars more per pair, and perhaps it also costs a few dollars more for shipping. If it does, then I can imagine the total cost being twice as much per pair.
We could always stop reading their blog posts and their tweets, but then again, we should keep in touch with those we disagree with.
We could always scold them for supporting bad companies. However, I do not really want to become a judge of who is guilty of supporting L'eggs. I do not want to creates rules and laws and exceptions.
Wearing hosiery is supposed to be a positive experience, and I do not want a whole society popping up, where we have self-appointed rulers over ordinary members. Could you imagine what life would be like if we had to do that for candy or cake? Imagine this: every time we hear about somebody eating candy/cake from a company that supports sweat shop labour and skin colour discrimination, then we report him to a group leader. That would make eating candy and cake so painful, even if we are not the people being punished.
So far, I think that the best tools that we have available are expressing our disapproval of the guys who buy L'eggs hosiery, and compassionate persuasion.
Expressing our disapproval is straight forward enough, but before we do that, we should ask them why they did not buy another brand. I think that that is a fair question. L'eggs discriminates against men, even though it does not improve or ruin their marketing campaign. People only perceive the acceptance of men wearing hosiery as ruining the campaign.
Ultimately, it is really L'eggs, who is committing this sin, and not the supporters. I think that men really might have a justifiable reason for supporting L'eggs, but they must give an account.
Compassionate persuation is useful for us. After all, men should really think of themselves as on the same side. Therfore, it makes sense that men try to reason with each other in gentleness and kindness. I am not good at winning people over. Therefore, I offer no advice other than trying to see why the person continues to support such a company.
In other words, listening to the person, no matter what technique you use is a definite idea.
I am very eager to read your thoughts on this. What should we do with L'eggs supporters? Am I being to strict?
Thank you for reading!
