You may have seen the hilarious Amazon reviews of the new BIC For Her pen, which went viral a few weeks ago. It’s hard to believe that FINALLY, in 2012, there’s a pen that’s just for women! Ellen Degeneres was asked by BIC to endorse the new pen, and here’s what she came up with!
I mean, we’ve all seen those pink, often rhinestoned to death “girl” versions of products… headphones, cell phone cases, etc. If you’re into that stuff, awesome! I enjoy pink just as much as anyone else. But to say that it’s a pen that’s specifically designed for women and then make it look like something you’d find in the little girls section at Wal-Mart makes my eyes want to roll out of my head. But I’m sure that so many women out there are so relieved that they don’t have to worry about accurately representing their gender with their writing anymore. Whew.
Lovelies, what do you think about Ellen’s response to BIC?
