BIC For Her Amber Medium Ballpoint Pen

I particularly enjoyed these reviews:

"No good for man hands
I bought this pen (in error, evidently) to write my reports of each day's tree felling activities in my job as a lumberjack. It is no good. It slips from between my calloused, gnarly fingers like a gossamer thread gently descending to earth between two giant redwood trunks."

"I was hoping that it would be less phallic,
I do not understand why a pen for her is so phallic. Why does a tool of self-expression have to bear the very shape of the symbol of the patriarchy?"

"This pen changed my life.
Before I started using this pen, I was a typical male: unable to express any feelings beyond hungry and horny. Now I have a more expressive and nuanced view of myself and of others. Now, I do not have to ask my wife what is wrong because, thanks to this pen I SOMEHOW KNOW. I have become more open, and can listen better. Thank you bic, I love you."
