Spiderbite says

I can use any tool that a man can use, and sometimes better. It ticks me off that they make a tool overly simplistic to use and color it pink and label it as a tool for a woman because of these things.

Like we're too stupid and weak to figure out a "MAN'S" tool. It's offensive.

Hear, hear Spiderbite! Fight the good fight!

I love when I have to use my drill... which I stole from my husband, he wasn't making good use of it anyway!

I thought the pink screwdriver and hammer was supposed to remind us of a "man's tool" while using it for screwing and hammering and thus, give us a little practice.

I'm a pervy owl...
