    To be fair the type of manlet who would shop there on his own wouldn't be too upset with "reverse" sexism. Then you have the consideration that most normal guys would just accompany their girlfriend (I can't imagine why women wouldn't want to shop somewhere with lower prices) there and try not to stir up an argument over something like this.
    I think you'll find a lot of men, whether they are with girls or not, wouldn't shop in such a shop in the first place with such bonkers and socially backwards rules. if you had a shop that said "christians 10% off - atheists +10%" for instance, would either of those demographics really look to the shop as an ethical one? what kind of twisted nutter would actually entertain the idea of going into it if it's actually willing to put up a ****ing sign saying something like "(n word)s **** off"~? yes, I used that example because this looks A LOT like jim crow. or something even worse:

    I agree with the sentiment - it's just that I see the average customer there as being a lot more... tolerant of this sort of behaviour than us. I personally wouldn't shop at a shop like that with or without my girlfriend, but I fear that the average dude in Soho may be different.

    in my honest view, if a guy on his own saw those signs, off he would **** and never come back, because **** having to pay more when you could pay less.
