estimating the compet…e released, it is the manufacturers who receive public ridicule rather than the women who buy them. It is Bic’s fault for being sexist and underestimating the competence and taste of women; it is not the fault of women for refusing to buy a pen in dark blue or black.
I liked a fair amount of the article but I think this is just plain wrong. Don’t really want to go all bro guy right-wing libertarian on you but it is true that Bic will sell whatever maximizes profits and that happens to be pink pens. Criticizing a corporation for fulfilling its one and only purpose is a losing strategy with no endgame.
