Commentary on the “Husband Beater” and Other Disgusting Products

“Love it or hate it, the U.S. is a free market economy. As such, people can start almost any business they want. While in many ways that is a beautiful thing—it allows for creativity and ingenuity, and it spurs motivated individuals to take risks that may turn into something really exciting and potentially beneficial, not just individually but for society at large– this same free market economy allows people to start businesses that do absolutely no social good and are, in some cases, absolutely despicable. Here I discuss a few of the examples that have made my blood boil. Sadly, they are far from the exception. Surely others can identify examples of their own that should simply never have gone to market. Not because the government should censor or prohibit them, but rather because no individual should ever dream up such disgusting, inhumane ways of making a profit—and no one should support such poor ideas by buying them.”
