A few months ago, Ellen DeGeneres discovered that Bic was making a line of pink and purple pens designed to fit delicate lady hands. In response, she issued a scathing, hilarious smackdown. I am absolutely delighted that she didn’t stop there.
Well, folks, it looks like the original YouTube video has been removed, which is a total drag because Ellen gave us some certified #RealTalk about the most needlessly gendered items. Like, ever. In the meantime, though, since Ellen is basically the heavyweight sexism smackdown champion of the world, be sure to check out her takedown of gendered pens. Yep, you read right. That is indeed a thing. Sigh.
