This pen changed my life
BIC, I cannot thank you enough. For years now I have used classic, black or blue manly pens. Before this product, I could see no possible gender divide in the pen industry but could not quite understand the scandalised looks from strangers and the reasons why I could write no more articulate sentences than; ‘My favourite kind of kitten is…’, ‘Shoes are not as important as…’ and ‘I am on my period.’ Worse than this, I can’t even begin to imagine what people must have thought of me! Looking back on it, they must have thought I had either stolen pens from respectable gentleman or that I was receiving them in payment for services rendered, if you get my drift. Unthinkable. Now, my life has changed. I now articulate myself properly with statements such as ‘I love all Kittens’, ‘Shoes are more important than anything’ and ‘I am on my period.’ THANK YOU BIC! You have given me sense,respectability and a set of colourful new pens.
I never knew I needed this so much
Oh. My. God. I’ve been doing it all wrong. There was me thinking I didn’t need to worry about whether my writing implement sufficiently reflected my gender. Thank you so much Bic for showing me the error of my ways. Perhaps Bic will also bring out a new range of pink (or purple) feminine spanners, screwdrivers, electric drills and angle grinders so that I can carry out my job as a bicycle mechanic without further embarrassing myself? Luckily my male colleagues have managed to keep their disapproval of my use of their masculine tools to themselves. I’m so ashamed. And re-educated as to my place in society. Thanks again Bic!
Outraged at the sexism!
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!
This product cured my girly dyslexia.
Before I bought this product I couldn’t write but now I’m an engineer. Mind you, I only design pink, flowery bridges, motorways and sewers.
Thanks to Bic, I can now write!
How can I extol these miraculous gifts to Womankind enough? All of my writing experiences up until now have consisted of trying to wrap my dainty lady hands around robust, manly pens and failing miserably. Their harsh, heavy colors blinded my delicate lady eyes, and their mighty weight was too tremendous for my weak lady constitution. At times, I was able to practice my literacy on my small pink laptop, but only for short periods before I was overwhelmed by the complexity of the technology. After too many fruitless hours spent fainting after trying to take up the pen, or weeping over an incomprehensible and overwhelming array of options like “Fonts,” “Format” and “Print,” I thrust aside these implements of manly expression, swearing off forever their masculine mysteries.
But now, Bic has saved me! With these easy-to-manage lady pens, I too can record my grocery lists and the agenda for my weekly sewing circle! Yes, that’s right; due to these pens’ soft grips and lightweight build, even my useless, made-from-porcelain hands can manage to wield them. And what’s more, their sweet and rosy color palette is soft on my frail lady eyes! It really is a dream come true! I plan on sharing them with all of my lady friends, and I fully expect that their joy will be so overpowering that the smelling salts will need to be passed around a time or two.
Gave these as a gift to my GF
I recently purchased these for my Girlfriend’s birthday. She LOVED them. FINALLY she can jot down recipe ideas, make the shopping list (which I will buy) and keep a chart of her menstrual cycle. I kid you not, before these pens we were going through about 50-100 regular (i.e mens) BIC pens a week. She could barely see them, had trouble picking them up and if she ever managed to get pen to paper she’d just write my name surrounded by love hearts. Annoying or what?
So THANK YOU BIC for providing these pens for ladies. The opportunities are now limitless (Where the actual limit is defined by me and must not exceed a value of 75% of a man’s opportunity). She’s even talking about writing a book about a flower collecting pony!!! That’ll keep her quiet!! (For a change, right?).
In short good job BIC! Just what we need in 2012. Pens for ladies.
I really can’t work out what to do with this product. it doesn’t seem to work at all. Where am I supposed to put the batteries?
Would be more effective if much thicker. Could not find battery compartment? Waste of my weak and ineffective lady money.
As a MILLIONAIRE AUTHOR of BESTSELLING TECHNO-THRILLERS, I have to say that I was very disappointed with this pen. Whenever I tried to write punchy, in-your-face prose about the nuclear payload capabilities of the B-2 Northrop-Grunmann stealth bomber, I found myself instead writing about shopping, cocktails and friendship. And when I tried to write the title ‘OPERATION CRISIS POINT’ at the top of the page, I found myself writing ‘DIARY OF A THIRTYSOMETHING’ instead. Is Jeremy Renner gonna want to star in the movie adaptation of that? IS HE HECK.
