Sometime last year, Procter & Gamble Co. was throwing around some crazy ideas of creating a grocery aisle specifically for men, apparently a brand new breed of consumers walking around grocery stores.
The idea was to give the lonely male lost in a supermarket a fun shopping experience, putting everything a man's man would need in one place. And New York City's Westside Market has gone and done just that.

Hmm, this article was just posted on FR and pulled for some reason.
This article take the position that men in the grocery store are unusual. Not around here. I’d say 60% women, 40% men.
We’ll assume one side of the aisle contains selections from the orange food group....
(chips, cookies, snacks,.....)
Im sure the cake and circuses aisle cant be far behind....
How can it be sexism when women already have their own aisles?
Apparently the previous post included a copyrighted image.
I know. I posted it. But there are always SOME people....
If you can have the four basic food groups—beer, bratwurst, pizza, and ice cream—all in the same aisle, this is a good thing.
And in some grocery stores there’s a whole aisle for the Mexicans, Latinos, Hispanics or however you want to define them.
It’s a good idea. They should also create a dinner in 30 minutes aisle. Full of good ideas and recipes. Folks might stop at the grocery store instead of McD’s.
how long before Bloomberg tries to ban it?
well many of the guys at college will never walk inot the mans aisle, hell most of them look like little weenies and women anyway.
Then there are the left wing pompous elitist men , who lets his wife control him will never be alllowed to walk down a mans aisle.
Don’t forget the Lewinsky-approved and endorsed cigars!
This was, of course, spawned by a recent ESPN study showing that 31 percent of grocery shoppers are now men, in comparison to the 14 percent in 1985.The left continues its assault on the traditional family.
I don’t need a man aisle. I can read the signs and walk at the same time.
Often, when we just need something quick, I’ll leave my wife in the car and go inside alone. Every time I come back, she asks, “How’d you do that so fast?”.
Maybe the new metro males are dumb, but navigating a grocery store has never been too difficult.
Real men aren’t so insecure that they need this sort of thing.
I think it’s funny. The comments at the article indicate that some people have their panties in such a wad that they can’t see the humor in it.
