Everyone, it seems, loves to rag on the Pumpkin Spice Latte — except, perhaps for those who shell out something like $100 million a year on the seasonal offering at Starbucks. But even those who are fans of the drink sometimes feel a little uneasy about making the purchase. Some women worry they might be labeled “basic,” while some men worry that someone might see them drinking a supposed “girl drink.”
Indeed, when Vice sent out a reporter to examine the gender politics of the drink, she spoke with a barista who told her that guys ordering the drink “speak more quietly and their eyes get shifty.” But despite the nervousness, he said, men bought roughly half of all the Pumpkin Spice lattes he prepared. Not such a girl drink after all.
Just don’t tell that to the incels, who disdain both the drink and its buyers, and consider it so much of a girl drink that they see its very existence as a sign that we live in some sort of secret gynocracy where (white) women are catered to over men.
“Pumpkin spice is a prime example of white female privledge,” wrote someone called SlayerSlayer on the Incels.co forums recently.
It’s fall again, and I can’t help but notice that they have PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING. You go to Trader Joes- PUMPKIN SPICE. You go to Starbucks- PUMPKIN SPICE. You wanna buy fucking soap from Target- PUMPKIN SPICE
Cuz of the huwhite womenz. This is fucking ridiculous. Yeah, pumpkin spice is not the worst flavor but I hate being reminded of dogfucking and basic bitchery every time I buy a vanilla latte, or just anything in general.
Dude, I hate to tell you but you are the only one “being reminded of dogfucking” whenever you step into a Starbucks. It’s only incels who are utterly obsessed with the delusional belief that most white women fuck dogs
Another incel suggested the problem extended much further than pumpkin spice.
Starbucks + Jamba Juice + Trader Joes + Whole foods = white foid central.
Rage fuel places to go. I always avoid these places. I make my own coffee or get it from a gas station.
Well, that’s good news for everyone who works at or shops at Starbucks, Jamba Juice, and the rest of his list. I just feel bad for the employees and customers of that gas station.
