As the title says:
What object do you use that is technically manufactured or made for the opposite sex than what you define yourself to be?

As for me? I don't particularly go out of my way, but I actually find men's (disposable) razors nicer than females on the off chance that I decide to shave instead of wax. They have a nicer grip and more blades so a smoother shave.. but I can't think of anything else at the moment that I prefer.

Oh my god, I'm the opposite. I use female disposable razors because I learned to shave with them and I don't like stepping out of my comfort zone with stuff like that.

Also shampoo.

I believe I have used women's shampoo and conditioner a lot before (although I think shampoo and conditioner are generally made for both sexes) because I like the smell and softness it gives my hair. :]

On occasion, I've also used women's deodorant. That has only happened once or twice though.

One time I used a women's deodorant stick a few years back. I swear I was late for school and didn't have a choice.

I use conditioner in my hair, because my hair can get very frizzy if I didn't

I use conditioner too actually. And yes, it really does make a difference.
I can't think of anything else though...

Oh my God this thread has hilarious sexual potential that has to go untapped because of children. I hate when people do this, it always makes me feel like I'm being forced to miss an opportunity to be hilariously inappropriate.

But to answer the question, I use women's razors on my face to get rid of the extra hair in tight spots that my electric shaver can't get to. I also took one of my mother's Women's Multivitamins once to see what would happen... nothing did. My coat was real shiny the next day though.

Hmm, interesting question. I suppose the most obvious is that I use men's shavers, which, like someone said above is because they're just what I had gotten used to using. I don't really see much of a difference between the two anyway.

And another thing that kind of irks me is shoes. I'm a women's size 13, so...yeah. xD

I don't have any, but if I were gay, I'd have a vibrator.

...Eh, you're leaving me with a tough act to follow there.

The only thing that I really use from the opposite sex is shampoo. Even though it's not for one particular gender, it's mostly marketed towards women. I also use a flowery smelling body wash, but again, it's more gender neutral rather than strictly for women.

I've used more feminine/flowery smelling shampoo before, though one main reason for that is because my dad usually just buys whatever shampoo is cheapest.Plus I really like the smell of most shampoos marketed towards women. I've also got women's deodorant before not know it was aimed more towards women so when I figured that out, I returned it ASAP.

Edit: I've worn high heels and other women's clothes before but it was for a play where I had to be a woman.

Err, I guess shampoo and conditioner. But I swear, conditioner does nothing to my hair, it's still wavy and annoying. :c

Aside from that, I've used womens' razors once or twice. We ran out of mens' razors, okay. :c

...also high heels. I just wanted to see how they felt, though, okay. I didn't go outside with them :I

I forgot to say; I like some men's white musk cologne because it is a bit flowery/ sweet with a hint of darker tones (instead of being too fruity like most perfumes are) and I will spray that from time to time :3

Conditioner for my hair, and uh a nail filer cause I bit my nails. Sure they might be short, but I want them to at least be smooth. I also use a blow dryer, if someone were to consider it feminine.

Nothing that I'm aware of?
I think I've had shirts that were intended for guys when I was younger, but I don't have them anymore.

Dipu, your post made me laugh.

Well.. that's interesting! xD

I also put girl perfume sometimes... I prefer the scent of it more than men's perfume, they smell too strong :C

I have used some female shampoo once or twice when I ran out. Apart from that, not at all really.

There has been a few times where I have used women's deodorant, I'll admit. It was only when I didn't have deodorant at the time. I've also used a nail filer, because when I cut my nails, they are so rough that they catch on anything. Women's shampoo I've used, and I still do, because I think it works a lot better than most shampoos that I've used.

The only thing I used to use is those nasty overpowering cologne. It was a few years back though.

I used Axe Kilo body wash for a while once, and I don't have a problem using men's deodorant (though I don't just go out and buy it lol). I used to buy men's necklaces a lot as a teenager because I liked them better than the stuff that was made for girls. Oddly enough, they break easier than the necklaces made for women.

One time I opened a condom pack cause I found a box of them and then I buried it. Does that count for anything?

I use men's razors too! I prefer waxing, but women's razors are junk. They're manufactured to have more moisturizing strips than men's because women need to be oh-so smooth, but realistically all the moisturizing strips do is gunk up and clog the blades so they don't last as long, making shaving uneven and ineffective. They're better suited for men's faces than women's legs, ironically, which is why I'm not surprised to see some of the guys using them XD

OP is a reddit user, huh? I saw this exact question just yesterday. ;)

I use men's shampoo and deodorant. Smells better.
