isn’t it time that pink lost its gender specificity?
whose idea was that anyway? what makes pink feminine except that someone said it was and it got embedded into the cultural weave? (yes, it may have taken a few years, but in a few years it could be undone, could it not?)
you may think i’m on my high horse again about something that, realistically speaking, cannot be undone easily, the culture wars being what they are these days (or any day for that matter, for truly, what hetero man could/would let his son wear pink?) oh, the day may come when a man can wear a pink oxford button-down shirt with the appropriate tie–not a bow-tie, of course, because that is suspect as well, indicating academe or the artistically-inclined–god forbid, but before then what’s the beef with pink, men?
