CBC reports that Wal-Mart is charging more for plus-sized women's clothing, but not plus-sized men's clothing.
While that inequity between the sexes is unreasonable, I have a different take on this issue.
I am a small-sized person. For years I thought it inequitable for me (and other small-sized persons) to subsidise the clothing pricing for larger-sized persons. The cloth and labour components are greater for larger clothing, yet I paid the same price for my smaller clothing.
While I do not applaud Wal-Mart's sex discrimination, I hope to see a wide-spread correction to the injustice that I experience.
