Are you female? Are you currently on your laptop thinking “Gee I wish this was more feminine?” Or maybe you’re more old fashioned and prefer using pen and paper but you’re unhappy with its overbearingly masculine qualities. Maybe you’re unhappy with your favourite chocolate bar (though it’s unlikely).
You’re in luck, because the people at Bic, Fujitsu and Cadbury have got you covered with these three completely non-sexist products.
The Japanese IT company Fujitsu created a laptop for women called Floral Kiss, because the who wants to be seen at a cute biscotti cafe with a big clunker? It promises to solve the “ladies’ problems” you might have, but most likely don’t. For example, did you just get your nails done? Well don’t fret because a start-up button that won’t ruin your manicure is included. Phew! Just look how happy the woman in the commercial is.
Instead of devouring an entire chocolate in one sitting LIKE A MAN, why not get Cadbury’s Crispello, which conveniently comes separated in portions so you can have a little at each interval? The weight-conscious bars are aimed squarely at the female demographic, because come on, women are always on diets. Pardon my ignorance but isn’t this the same as buying a regular chocolate bar and just eating a bit at a time and saving the rest for later? Also I’m pretty sure someone already came out with a chocolate for women, it’s called CHOCOLATE!
BIC Pens for Her
Yes you are reading this correctly — Pens for Her. The BIC pen is said to be sleeker and thinner, just in case a regular pen is too thick and heavy for your fragile femine hands. And of course, they come in light delicate colours, because if there’s one thing women complain about it’s how abrasive the colours of their pens are. Am I right ladies? Ellen even called BIC out for their blatant sexism. See it below:
So the question is, would women actually find any of these products appealing enough to buy or just sexist? Would YOU buy any of these?
