Watch: Ellen DeGeneres Rants About Pink Cars for Girls and other Stupid Girly Stuff

Last month Ellen DeGeneres went on a hilarious tear about the ridiculousness of Bic pens “for her.” Well, it appears in this post-Lily Ledbetter world that companies can’t help but specifically market gender neutral items to women in pink and purple, a fact that is not lost on Ellen.

Last month Ellen DeGeneres went on a hilarious tear about the ridiculousness of Bic pens “for her.” Well, it appears in this post-Lily Ledbetter world that companies can’t help but specifically market gender neutral items to women in pink and purple, a fact that is not lost on Ellen.

In her latest monologue she takes on pink and purple one and two pound weights and the new Honda Fit She’s, which comes in pink and “eyeliner brown.”

Ellen goes on to list a few of the features of the “lady car,” which she says is all true. “It has a climate control system that they say improves your skin quality, it has a windshield that prevents wrinkles,” Ellen says, but adds, “I’m sure they’re already working on a newer model that dispenses Midol and has a built-in GPS that helps you find a man.”

If cars for women weren’t reductive enough there’s now a computer for women called the Floral Kiss Ellen explains. The computer is equipped with a scrap-booking app and a daily horoscope checker Ellen says.

“I checked my horoscope, and guest what it said?” Ellen prods. “Today your progress as a woman will be set back 92 years.”
