The Science of Pink

I will preface this by saying I do not agree with this article, but it is interesting to read anyway, it goes something like this:

The idea that little girls like everything in pink while little boys prefer blue appears to have a scientific basis according to a study showing that a person's colour preference depends largely on their sex.

To quote:

However, early human societies almost certainly engaged in a division of labour between the sexes, with men travelling long distances to hunt wild game. Women, meanwhile, foraged locally for fruit and berries.

Dr Hurlbert suggests that this division of labour may be at the root of why girls now prefer pink.

"Evolution may have driven females to prefer reddish colours - reddish fruits, healthy, reddish faces. Culture may exploit and compound this natural female preference,"

The full article is here.

So girls like Pink because our ancestors picked berries, hmmm. So when "Men" were out slaughtering animals for food and saw red blood, why don't they like red and pink either? How come girls wear all sorts of colors not just pink and I like pink but that's as silly as saying men like blue because of what..they sky? As if girls don't look at the sky....

I will remind everyone here that it is not that long ago that the Gender wars had boys supposedly better at Math than women, well this is now proven wrong despite the old "genetics" and "nature" arguments that appear to suit a male audience.

Perhaps to drive home this point, the super hero we all needed for Hello Kitty Online! Isn't he great! He will come to save the day, and he wears Pink with Pride!
