Amazon reviews of [amazon_link id="B004F9QBE6" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ]Bic’s “For Her” pen[/amazon_link] are the best Amazon reviews ever.
Women are uniting in the reviews, arriving in droves, to poke a little fun at the ink-pen giant. I think the message to Bic is pretty clear: Women don’t want pens, marketed to us, like a bad tampon commercial.
Giving the pens five stars, Tracy Hamilton writes:
Someone has answered my gentle prayers and FINALLY designed a pen that I can use all month long! I use it when I’m swimming, riding a horse, walking on the beach and doing yoga. It’s comfortable, leak-proof, non-slip and it makes me feel so feminine and pretty! Since I’ve begun using these pens, men have found me more attractive and approchable. It has given me soft skin and manageable hair and it has really given me the self-esteem I needed to start a book club and flirt with the bag-boy at my local market. 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. Those smart men in marketing have come up with a pen that my lady parts can really identify with.
Also rating them with five stars, breemeup writes:
Finally! For years I’ve had to rely on pencils, or at worst, a twig and some drops of my feminine blood to write down recipes (the only thing a lady should be writing ever). I had despaired of ever being able to write down said recipes in a permanent manner, though my men-folk assured me that I “shouldn’t worry yer pretty little head”. But, AT LAST! Bic, the great liberator, has released a womanly pen that my gentle baby hands can use without fear of unlady-like callouses and bruises. Thank you, Bic!
The men-folk aren’t missing their chance to be heard. Giving the pen one star, P. Davies chimes in with:
First of all I’m a male. I picked a pink one up by mistake to write a quick note… Next thing I know I’m sitting down to take a pee. Be careful.

Hopefully Bic can see that we ladies just need special razors. We don’t need sleekly designed pens.
What would review of the new girly-pens be? Do you know of any other products that received funny Amazon reviews?
