The argument about shape and weight is justified.

No it isn't. Shape and weight are a matter of comfort and usability. They have nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with whether a pen is feminine or masculine.

Only things with reproductive parts can be feminine or masculine. (i.e., living beings.) Everything else is just a false association for the sake of making one person feel better about their personal choices, at the expense of making someone else feel bad. It is all nonsense. Don't buy into it.

Oh, now you've really screwed things up! If you take that one out in public, people are going to think you are using a children's pen. This is a horrible mistake, I hope you can take it back and get something big and heavy, maybe shiny black with some gold parts on it. Then you can stroll into any room and people will be impressed with your manliness.

Quick. Before it's too late.

When I looked it I thought it's a ladies pen.

However, it's what you think that matters not what other people think. :happyberet:

Look online for the shape of Mont Blanc Pricesse Grace Pen, it`s a feminine pen for sure, so I think that we can say that pens could be for a man, for a woman and also can be unisex (to bottle genders like a bic pen). But Princesse Grace is a very feminine pen. The shape looks a womans body shape, as this cross sauvage (this pen have hips!:)).


As a man, I don't think I'd want to use a pen just because it was shaped after a man's body shape, so why would a pen that looks like a woman's body shape necessarily be a "woman's pen"?

I'm glad you could tell it was said in good humor. Seriously, though: write with a pen you enjoy, that both works well and appeals to your eye. Don't give a moment's thought to what other people may think of it, because life it too short to go around trying to please everyone else.
