The one bright spot on these stupid women's products, is the occasional Amazon reviewers. Did you see the one for the lady pen
The lady BIC pen reviews are the best. I don't think there is a single serious review for that product.
I keep hoping there will be other products with awesome reviews like this that will go viral.
omg thanks so much for the link, I am laughing my ass off at those reviews. This product is soo stupid but the reviews make it all better :D
Those reviews are making me snort with laughter.
They're pretty fantastic.
Ughhh. This reminds me of when I was looking to upgrade my 15lb dumbbells to 20lb dumbbells & the guy next to me said, "The Barbie weights are over there." I looked where he was pointing, saw the 2 & 5lb ones that are covered in pink vinyl, smirked, brushed past him standing at the 10lb dumbbells, picked up the 20lb & carried it over my shoulder from the back of the store to the checkout.
Or of the "trainer" Tracy Anderson who says that if women lift anything heavier than 3lb, we'll turn into men.
I've been shearing sheep for 20 years and have yet to grow a penis. Or giant arms for that matter.
Tracy Anderson can kiss my childbearing arse.
Yeaaah, I have serious issues with Tracy Anderson. Not only does she promote basically bottled anorexia with her meal plans, but she has no understanding of the female body and yet puts herself in a position where people believe she does. Guh.
I've been lifting weights for a year & a half now and my arms aren't huge.
LOLOL I squatted 230 lbs yesterday and I can deadlift 200 lbs, no sweat. Since I started weight-lifting I've actually gotten more feminine-looking -- muscles have added shape to my straight-up-and-down frame dont'cha know.
Absolutely, yes! I'm a natural hourglass but lifting has cinched in my waist even more. I got accused of wearing a corset to a nightclub, and it's like, if you honestly think I'd stuff myself into a corset to stand here for 4-5 hours watching a band play, you're crazy.
I don't know why they make pink weights either.
I run / workout and in my experience, the ultra-feminine activewear sells the slowest if there's an alternative. I know this because I scope out clearance items.
I guess they do this so a man won't have to touch a girly weight by mistake? Ugh.
i agree, looking at things marketed "for women" only infuriates me. the sad part is the number of women who fall for it :( think more highly of yourselves, ladies! you are powerful! i'd love to see someone market a "for men" dumbbell that has all the requirements for gaining strength and power, but has something pink on it. i'd love to see how many men complain that there's pink on their manliness.
The only time I'm okay with someone buying pink dumbells is quite simple:
There is no other alternative in that weight [ie color or grip or what-have-you]
someone who actually likes pink who will actually use it, regardless of gender.
One of my male friends does one of his workouts with "ladies" weights, because they fit better in his hands for the workouts he does. [Kinda like tae bo? I'm not sure what it is off hand] Plus, he works out with his daughter sometimes, and she LOVES the pink ones, she thinks they made them just for her... Then again, she's only 4...
