A Melbourne cafe has introducing a ‘man tax’ on its male customers and offers priority seating for women, all for the sake of equality. But, as the internet goes, calls for boycott are already heard.

The Handsome Her cafe wants to do its part to fight the gender pay gap, and is charging male customers 18 percent tax.

The cafe owner, Alex O’Brien, who describes herself as “a feminist, not the fun kind,” told Seven News that the gender tax is only added one week out of every month, and that it’s not compulsory. “If people aren’t comfortable paying it or if men don’t want to pay it, we’re not going to kick them out the door,” she said.

The 18 percent figure comes from a 2016 Australian government Workplace Gender Equality Agency report which showed women in Australia earn 82 percent of what men do on a yearly basis

'Prices in a vegan feminist cafe.'

I'll go with 'What are things that have absolutely zero chance of ever affecting me,' Alex.
