We all know that pink has been associated with girliness and femininity for over 70 years, even though that definitely wasn’t always the case. Because of this, for as long as I can remember, it was always pretty cool to be a girl who rejects pink. That’s not just blind internalized misogyny. Pink is unfairly forced upon anyone with a vagina at birth. Have you been to the girl’s section of a toy store? Even someone who loves pink would have an overwhelming urge to barf.
But we’re old enough to acknowledge that pink’s association with femininity, ditziness, and cutesy BS is ridiculous. Can we just admit that it isn’t the worst color in the world? It’s not my absolute favorite (team green), but it’s definitely up there! Of course, it’s fair to not like pink, and I’m not saying that it’s revolutionary to wear a pink dress without shame, but I do think that girls who shamelessly love pink get a bad rap. Can pink lovers just live?
