  1. Well, it's a matter of market segmentation. It's infinitely easier to market to clear and obvious demographics, so it's in the economic interest of basically every company in the world to divide the consumer base like this. Since most people think and act the way popular culture tells them to, and major companies pretty much control popular culture, this is what we get. I doubt it's going to go away before it becomes unprofitable.

  2. Well, they put the 'man' in there because it sounds very much like landscaping, as in the practise of trimming your bushes and trees (among other things). It's a much older term than 'mansplaining' or 'manspreading' and, to my knowledge, isn't in itself derogatory.

    I'm with you on the modern terms, though. They contribute nothing positive to the world.
