Pink or Blue - who decides colors for girls and boys, culture or nature?

nameless, I’m sortof with you.  There’s drama in those colors (black being all of them)

When I was little I had to have everything red.  Even when I crayoned in my coloring books I would make the entire page a solid mass of crushed red wax and I didn’t bother keeping inside the lines either….I ... wanted ... RED!

I do like pink though, there’s a kind of ‘taste’ to that color depending on the hue.  I don’t like it on guys, it just seems kind of deviant.  I like all colors though, especially deep earthy ones.  But the colors I wear change drastically with my mood and I like the fact that as a girl I kind of have social ‘permission’ to do so.

Personally I think pink should be normal for everyone.  It doesn’t matter whether you’re male or female when you arrive in the world you’re still pink all over.  (for caucasians anyway)

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

Speak for yourself. Here we’re milk-bottle white.

As Billy Connolly says, we’re Scottish. We’re a sort of light blue colour. We’re not pink, we’re actually blue.

Yes boys, not men.

I do like purple/lavendar shades on men though. smile

Phew, safe. I was given a really nice lavender dress shirt for my birthday, but I couldn’t bring myself to wear it. Upon some taunting by a friend of mine (she’s evil, but her boyfriend has it much, much worse), I wore it out a few weeks ago. Apparently it looked “hot”, but I still felt like it was too close to pink for comfort LOL

I have been told that I look terrible in pink by several people.  And that was just because a tee-shirt I had way back when had a character on it wearing a pink hat or something.

I have been told that I look good in (a dark) purple shirt, however.  Especially when tanned.

I think guys in some pastels look really sexy, including shades of lavender.  Pink I do have a problem with only because it’s a cultural ‘thing’ I suppose. 

I can tell you there are probably a LOT of guys who walk around wearing pink briefs though, not because they purchased them that way, but because they did their own laundry.
