Pink is Still the Sissy Colour in Some Circles... by Mintaka-TK Pink is Still the Sissy Colour in Some Circles... by Mintaka-TK
Seriously, it isn't. While I never had an intense "I H8 P1NK!!" phase, even though I've fallen out of love with the colour, I never once said I hated pink outright. Hell, I'm even starting to buy pink clothes again. It's just a shade of red mixed with white. What's the big deal?

OK, there is the whole debate regarding girl's toys being coloured pink and nothing else, but that's a different discussion for another day.

I love the color itself, and some of the frilly dresses that are pink look adorable! I just think that I'm not cut out for wearing it.

I hated pink simply because I wad taught to hate it by my parents. My mom is a wannabe tomboy and my dad is just a man that doesn't like pink (although I don't think he really minds anymore since he buys pink clothing for my littler sister)

I friggin love pink! Even during my tomboy years (nothing edgy like the ones we see now, I just liked boy clothes more), I wore plenty of pink. I don't get why people freak out over it, it's just a damn color.

Now there are too much tomboys and ""girl gamers"" and no more girly girls.

It's funny but I hate pink because purple is often associated with it....

...And my favorite color is purple. But not the reddy-pinky purple. Bluey-purple. I'm an insane person who is picky about colors, yes.

If someone likes pink, I'm not gonna start raving and ranting about how horrible I think the color is, because it's just my opinion. Opinion. That word again...

I know that magenta doesn't really exist, in the sense that it's not part of the light spectrum - it's actually a combination of red and violet light, in which our brains interpret as magenta. In truth, many colours we can percieve (white, grey, etc.) are mixtures of different wavelenghts of light.

The only colours I truly cannot stand are dark yellow and olive. Very yucky, unpleasant colours.

I love pink. Very nice colour.

Who hates pink because it's edgy? Most people just hate things because they don't appeal to them?

I'll admit I used to hate pink with a passion as a kid.. But now I don't really mind it as much.
Except for the light shades I cant stand.. mostly because certain shades hurt my eyes and even some shades I can't see at all. Just looks plain white to me.

I personally like my pink hot, with black and neon green. :)

(Also, pink is becoming a more common color scheme in rock music. See Green Day and Falling in Reverse, for examples.)

I heard that pink used to be a boy's color and that blue was a girl's color many years ago. I wonder when that changed and why...
Anyway, yeah, hating on the color pink is really silly. It's just a color. I can understand if it doesn't appeal to some people, but hating it?

I think it started to change around the 1940s...

I think the color pink is very nice in pastel form. :nod: I'd rather see it than wear it, if you know what I mean.

In all honesty, very few things are considered edgy or badass anymore. A lot of teens getting laid, doing drugs, drinking, cutting, getting tattoos, etc. etc. etc. No longer edgy. Heck, the only thing people would consider edgy anymore is if you have a robotic arm with all the gears and tubes exposed and just talking like the Terminator. That's about it.
