1.0 out of 5 stars CAREFUL BOYS, August 21, 2012
By 
This review is from: BIC Cristal For Her Ball Pen, 1.0mm, Black, 16ct (MSLP16-Blk) (Office Product)
If you identify as male do NOT use this product.

The "for her" label is not just a gimmick exploiting archaic gender constructs, it's a WARNING. Even if you're a boy who likes pastels and glitter (which really I don't see why you shouldn't, what kind of moron thinks that only girls would like that kind of thing? seems kind of backwards to me) this pen is NOT for you. I don't know why they didn't put a clearer warning on the label, they really should have because if you are a boy and use this pen you put yourself at great risk. 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.

I'm serious, guys, be careful, these really are just "for her"! BIC, please, recall this product until you've made the warning more explicit to avoid more tragedy!!!

THANK YOU! You saved me, my boyfriend is already "artistic" so this might have pushed him to the "other side"! I dare imagine, how this could have impacted my life!

Thank you for letting us men know about the truth. I don't want to be a unicorn either. Is there any Bic for Him pen that will turn the girls into unicorn? We might love that.

Not if you don't mind growing a nice pair of boobies!

I don't think it would work that way. A Bic for Him would probably turn a girl into a dragon, or a Hellhound, or something similar.
