View Full Version : Ladies, how the heck do you manage to get these Gatorade bottles open?

Well I got a case or two of 20oz. Gatorade bottles in my fridge, I'm a pretty big guy, can close a CoC #1 gripper and such, and still I have to struggle sometimes to get these damn lids off. The perforation ring is fierce on these Gatorades. Which is probably why it says "FIERCE" on the bottle.

How the heck can a woman half my weight/strength who wants to drink a gatorade be expected to get one of these things off without assistance? I have already had to help two different female friends who wanted to drink one of my damn gatorades.

I wouldn't go so far as to claim this is gender based beverage sexism, but I bet they have lost some female customers over this design problem. And not to mention, we have the Gatorade conspiracy:


I dunno, maybe there is some misogyny going on over at the Gatorade design facility.
