But, it's not what you think

Avocado face masks. Chai tea lattes. Cards Against Humanity in a pink box. Sounds like everything your average, run-of-the-mill, basic bitch would ever want right?

Yes, and that's sort of the problem that CAH is trying to address with their new game Cards Against Humanity For Her. It's literally the same exact game, just it comes in a bright pink box and it costs $5 more "because you're worth it." 

CAH's community director Jenn Bane told The Huffington Post that the goal was to challenge to the pink tax, or the price difference between female-specific products and gender-neutral products or products marketed to men. 

And thus, this act of feminism was born:

This isn't a myth. A study done by the New York City’s Department of Consumer Affairs in 2015 found that brightly colored products geared to women were 7% more expensive than the same type of product for men. 

We made Cards Against Humanity for Her because it’s a stupid idea that really makes us laugh,” Bane told The Huffington Post. “We slapped butterflies onto the logo and made it hot pink.” 

On the company's website, they market the new game by saying things like "there for you when you need a good cry," and "hydrates, lifts and revives!"

However, it's not all for fun. The extra $5 charge will be donated to EMILY's List, an American political action committee that aims to help elect pro-choice Democratic female candidates to office. 

“We decided that hey, it’s 2017, it’s time for women to have a spot at the table, and nevertheless, she persisted,” Bane said in the press release. 

But perhaps the best jokes are found on the site's Frequently Asked Questions page when asked, "is this product really necessary?"

"It's adorable. It's cute. Self-care. Take time for yourself. Chia bowl. Perfect on your coffee table or bookshelf. Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Brunch. Cheat day. Nasty women. Yaaaaaaaas queen! Good vibes only. Activated charcoal. Gender Reveal Party. Avocado face peels. You're such a Miranda. Paleo."
