Outraged at the sexism!,
This review is from: BIC For Her Medium Ballpoint Pen (Box of 12) - Black (Office Product)I feel I must complain in the strongest terms about the sexism of this item. Where are the "For Him" pens? How can I embrace my masculinity, when there is no pen for me? Am I destined to just watch all of the women around me falling into a sparkly dream of ponies, crochet and butterflies, while I pace angrily here, unable to access the manly world of construction vehicles, barbeques, motor racing and science? I can barely adjust my crotch, I am so angry.
Make pens For Him. Strong pens. Manly pens. Pens that dress on the right. Pens with good grips for masculine hands. MANPENS!

REGULAR pens are manpens. Duh. Kind of like the way that there are regular legos in many colors, and pink girl legos. That obviously means the regular ones are for boys. Regular telescopes and microscopes from toy catalogs that come in black are for boys, and they make special pink ones for girls that don't work as well. You know, because girls care more about the color than actually using the things. People used to think that all pens were unisex. Now we know--there are special pink pens for ladies, and all the rest are for men.

And what do you think the last 6000 years of writing instruments have been? That's right: Man-tools. Man-bones preceding man-styli preceding man-quills preceding man-fountain pens, preceding our own. It's time the women had a chance. Join the enlightenment, brother. Besides, it might be interesting to see what women come up with once they start writing things down.

I disagree. I think a truly "man" pen should be made of....say....concrete or steel or cast iron, and it should take some doing to push out some ink to get the job done. Maybe redwood, roughly hewn, so that it can try to give us splinters when we write, but will fail miserably in doing so because of our manly, calloused hands; and yet strong enough that it can withstand heavy scratching usage. At all times, it should be structured so that manly men can do manly things in a manly way....like MEN!
