CONFESSIONS OF A PINKAHOLIC

Pink is universally agreed girl color. Stereotype, huh?!  In the progressive world of twenty-first century, this rule seems to remain unchanged.

I am a Pinkaholic and so are zillions of girls and guys (secretly) around the globe. And yet, PINK is a color misunderstood worldwide. This tint of red is popularly associated with romance, femininity and tenderness. Though there is no confirmed consensual origin of this color symbolism, the notion is consistent through all the cultures.

Its a Pink Thing

Here are five facts you didn’t know about PINK:

1. It is actually stronger color than blue. Pink contains good portions of active color red, and hence signifies masculinity, while blue is a passive color and thus more feminine.

2. When colors were first introduced to the nursery in Britain in the early part of the 20th century, pink was considered the more masculine hue, a pastel version of red. Blue, with its intimations of the Virgin Mary, constancy and faithfulness, was thought to be dainty.  (source)

3. During Nazi rule, men accused of homosexuality were forced to wear Pink triangle (citing its feminism), thus its modern-day association with gay community.

4. In Belgium, pink is for baby boy and blue is for baby girl. (source)

5. According to a European legend, girls are born inside pink roses. Thus, the association.

Crux: If Leandre Medine decides to endorse pink someday, she did still be man-repeller.  You can wear pink and still not be hardcore feminine (pun intended).  It is just another preconceived notion  up for reconsideration. Feel free to challenge it.
