“Look like a girl. Think like a MAN” graphic: Spurs Outrage on Twitter and beyond
Bic Pens, no stranger to offending women, has done it again. This time, Bic offended women on Women’s Day.
Happily, a Tweeter named Harmony fixed it.
Bic Pens apologized on Facebook, twice. The first time they said they thought they were “empowering” women. Then they deleted that comment. But, of course, what goes online stays online:
Dear Bic Pens: you really must stop writing.

That time, hundreds of women, and a few intrepid men, had a wonderful time lambasting Bic Pens on Amazon.com for their “thin barrel designed to fit a women’s hand” and “an elegant and unique feminine style.”
Just LMAO at this one. Talk about foot in mouth syndrome and not learning from your mistakes.
I know! You really have to wonder what they are thinking and who they want to reach.
