    I just lost all respect for her. Not that I had any to begin with.

    Of all the things to complain about in the world she complains about "pens for women". She must be getting pretty bored.

    I'm also sure if you were to look at data women have smaller hands than men and that can easily be incorporated into the design of a pen. And I'm pretty sure those pens are for young teens. In my middle school and high school girls always wrote with pink and purple pens since those are colors a lot of girls that age are attracted to.

    Maybe Ellen would like everyone to just shutup and remain 100% politically correct. Although, there is absolutely nothing politically incorrect about this.

    the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.

    I was never an Ellen fan, but that was pretty funny. I don't see why you are upset, she is clearly making fun of BiC that made pens for women only. This was a stand-up comedy routine, nothing more IMO.

    I guess I see nothing wrong with pens designed for girls. I also think she actually believes everything she said in the beginning. The video at the end was satirical, everything before it was not.

    You guys think she doesn't have a problem with pens designed for women? I personally think she does. Turning that into some sexist argument and how women have it so bad boils my blood.

    That's the serious intro for a humor bit. Lighten up, Francis.

    Also, as a woman, pretty pink and purple pens for twice the cost are idiotic. It plays to the low information crowd.

    No thanks. She clearly has an issue with the pens which is ridiculous.

    If they are twice the cost then they clearly aren't worth the money. I will agree with you there. But I want to see that they are really twice the cost. It's also not like every pen is once price.

    I think you just have an issue with her, regardless of topic.

    Not true at all. Up until now I actually had no opinion. I actually thought she could be funny at times. I'm just not going to pretend tht he doesn't have an issue with those pens. If she didn't they would have turned into a joke.

    Wow dude! If you realized how asinine you sound in this thread, you'd IMMEDIATELY call and make an appointment at one of those Low T Centers I see advertising for all over.

    I have a serious dislike for a lot of feminists so after seeing this I reacted pretty quickly. I took it too serious. I still think she dislikes the idea of those pens which I find silly though.

    Also, I have no idea what a Low T Center is.

    Ellen does a ton of work for charity. Even though I don't agree with her on some issues, I still have a lot of respect for her.

    I don't really care either way, I think she is funny as hell and her show is surprisingly good. We've all got some sort of quirky belief
