interesting commentary on color especially that of the cultural push that pink is girly.
“ Before it was seen as a “girly” color, pink was gender neutral and commonly worn by men. When pink was chosen as the symbolic color of breast cancer, there was a feminist backlash. And when Chicago decided to make one of its subway lines pink, some scoffed. A writer for The Chicago Tribune said it was “strange” to have a pink line “in a city known for … deep-dish pizza and Chicago Bear-loving beer guzzlers.”
