    Pink & Sexism?

    Is it sexist to think a female's favorite color is pink or purple?


    Is it tomboy-ish for a girl to like blue/green?

    I don't know why, but this just clicked in my head.

    Actually no. There's these baby girls at my Masjid, and they always talk about things with the color pink. Then this other little girl came to my house and said I shouldn't think she likes pink just because she's a girl. That was a verbal slap in the face...

    Well, the pink color only comes from zAk... And only when he wants to express his love. Like how he changed Alpha Dude's nick to pink. Now he's hitting on me. I wonder if his wife is aware of these flirtatious acts....? Well, he has 3 more spots left....

    Yeah, I agree with you. I mean, I used to think girls should stick to their pink and purple, and guys should stick to their blue and green and black.

    Actually, some auntie wanted me to help them buy an ipod for their daughter. So I went to the store and picked out the pink iPod as requested. I told the saleswoman... "By the way... This is for some other girl. Not me." And she was like "Honey, guys can like pink too! " ... I don't think she took me seriously when it was for someone else...

    Re: Pink & Sexism?

    How is it sexist? So if most men like beautiful women, is it sexist to say that? Not all women like pink. Some women even hate it. But many women ive known, they do like pink.

    Maybe its the way our mind has been wired, pink seems to be associated to women. even if this wiring is broken by "increasing awareness" and fighting "sexism," I doubt ill ever wear a pink t shirt. I dont like the color.

    Re: Pink & Sexism?

    This thread made me like pink Somehow you all made it sound sooo beautiful :scared:'


    I see pink as I see other colours, except that I wouldn't use pink clothes

    However, I'm crazy about red

    When I tell people that my fav colour is red they all are like "I don't see you wearing/having red things often."

    Well, what to say? I don't buy things based on their colours <_< That'd be sexist & unfair concerning colours

    Our Lord! Verily, we have heard the call of one calling to Faith: 'Believe in your Lord,' and we have believed.
    Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and expiate from us our evil deeds, and make us die (in the state of righteousness) along with Al-Abrar

    our mind is not wired to like pink.. it is force fed us from birth....

    try buying yellow for your expecting loved ones and the outcome will prove different!

    Re: Pink & Sexism?

    We're just conditioned into thinking that blue is male and pink is female. Personally, I prefer black/red/turquiose. Once I saw a guy wearing a shirt that said 'Only tough guys wear pink'.

    Somebody shoot him!

    I never liked pink when I was little. I wasn't a tomboy either, I just like my TMNT toys better than the dolls I'd be given.
    However, I now like the look of pale pink, to such and extent that my room's pink
    Not a gory oink though...

    Oh and I voted 'What the pakoras...?'

    Will we be getting any?
