While reading a recent Advocate, I found fascinating the article about the “Bic South Africa” pen company apologizing for a “public post” on Facebook honoring women that drew ire from some quarters. The Bic post said, “Look like a girl, Act like a lady, Think like a man, Work like a boss.”

This upset some people and was denounced. Bic, of course, following corporate legal advice, immediately apologized. Steve Harvey, noted humorist, successful television host and author, has a very successful self-improvement book titled “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.” Apparently, someone agrees with the sentiment. My, oh my!
