Hilarious Reviews Of Bic Cristal For Her Pens

The Bic pen company really shot themselves in the foot when they decided to advertise their new line of "cristal" pens as being "for Her".

The interwebs immediately took to typing up hilariously scathing reviews of the pens, making sure to include all the magic, wonder and sparkly ponies these feminine pens have brought into their lives. Here are some examples:

"My drawings of kittens and ponies have improved, and now that I'm writing my last name hyphenated with the Robert Pattinson's last name, I really believe he may some day marry me! I'm positively giddy."

"But the Bic Cristal for Her pens sparkle (like crystal!) and twinkle and dance on the page and even emit little squeaks and giggles when they're writing extra fun stuff. They chatter among themselves and have their own personalities"

Read on and see why these pens are strictly for gals...no guys allowed!

This is totally ridiculous! (The charges against Bic.) -- While gendering pens does seem silly (but not any more so than anything else) the accusations here are even more so. Bic is competing in market with every imaginable price point and with a hundred million different styles, and they have to make distinct products somehow. So catering to different sections of the market is just an obvious strategy. I'm certain they have tons of market research showing gender preferences around size, shape, colour etc... (I have friends and family that would pick a pink pen over a black or blue one 100% of the time, and with no care for a price difference.) So arguing that the style differences are sexist would be hard to make, even if you were dead set on going there. Also, you'll also note that pens "for her" come in green, blue, and orange, so I'm not sure how ridiculous they're being on this front.

how can you go wrong with lines like "My little brother turned into a unicorn after I lent him one, and my friend told me that a boy in her class grew fairy wings in the middle of a test"
Awesome.

Sure, there were a number of funny comments, but over 500? I read through about 4-5 pages, and there were only a couple of really good ones that weren't incredibly bitter sounding.
