Well, I see the women haters are the first to post opinions on this article.

Personally I think anyone who cares a fig about what someone thinks about what they're wearing needs to gain some strength of character. Sure there are a lot of pink girl toys but from what I see in the toy sections there are plenty of other colours too. So girls really have more choice.

It is probably more in the boy sections that pink is taboo. That's because in becoming men it seems that men must do everything they can to reject the feminine to prove that hey are men. Boys have to actively move away from the feminine and their mothers as they become part of the male world but girls don't have to make this distinction of moving from the feminine world of their mothers to the male world like boys have to. Yes they have fathers but for the early childhood years it is the mother who usually has primary care of the children both boys and girls and so is the most powerful day to day figure in the lives of young boys.

It is men who have issues with pink, girls should just wear it with attitude and say suck it up, your're just jealous because we can wear any colour we like, but you can't because you are afraid of what people might think.

Another fact I have read about the colour pink and red on women is that men are more attracted to this colour on women but they don't understand why. It is because pink and red are the colour of the female sex organ.
Nature still controls us it would seem.

I await the vicious anti-women comments I know this will most likely arouse from the usual woman haters on this site. Because they are so afraid of wearing pink, whereas girls can wear any colour with impunity. (singing of song)Oh! I just love being a girl, or in my case a hard-headed woman who is not easily swayed by much of any thing.

I don't brake for lawyers dressed in black.

Being female and self-centred doesn't make you a feminist.

Cherful,

You are correct. Almost every aspect of the clothes of the modern woman is sending out sex signals.

EG. Lipstick is suggestive of engorged female sex genitals, low cut dresses advertise that the modern woman is actually female, wearing high heel shoes pushes out the breasts and the buttocks at the same time etc.

In fact, almost nothing worn by the modern woman has much constructive purpose, except for sending out sex signals.

There is the issue of the handbag, which is probably a remnant from 1000ís of years of groups of women browsing through the bush picking berries and fruits that they put into a dilly bag they always carried with them.

Men are afraid of pink because they are oppressed by women into believing it is a feminine colour. The matriarchy society has exploited men by forcing shame on them for wearing pink, whilst at the same time women are free to wear any colour with impunity. This is sexist.

Does this type of argument sound familiar?

Does it work in reverse?
