  1. The critic is right, it is cynical. In real-life, the pencil is a primary tool for art, whereas the sharpener is secondary, and just an aid to the pencil. I would like to know why (in your world) the pencils are male, and the sharpeners are female.

  2. Are you suggesting that the woman is being demeaned in her percieved role as of secondary value?
