Cafe charges men an extra 18 percent ‘Man Tax,’ because equality!

If any restaurant or other business establishment were foolish enough to implement an 18 percent surcharge on women, it’s hard to imagine it remaining open for 20 minutes.

But reverse the roles and all of a sudden you’re a feminist trailblazer.

The Handsome Her Shop, a vegan café located in Melbourne, Australia, has done exactly that, instituting an 18 percent “man tax” along with giving women priority seating, according to Metro News.

Assuming there are men out there who would dine at a vegan café called the Handsome Her Shop, it’s hard to imagine the D word (discrimination) not raising its ugly head here…

But it’s all good, because they’re just trying to “shine a light on the gender pay gap.”

Self-identified feminist owner Alex O’Brien, told Broadsheet, “I do want people to think about it, because we’ve had this (pay discrepancy) for decades and decades and we’re bringing it to the forefront of people’s minds. I like that it is making men stop and question their privilege a little bit.”

Twitter users had plenty to say:

O’Brien, however, insists that even the men who visit her establishment are happy to abide by the rules, one even donating an extra $50 in support.

“There’s been nothing but positivity from everyone, males and females,” said O’Brien.

To her credit, the extra money will go to a charity that helps Aboriginal women and children called the Elizabeth Morgan House.
