I'm thinking about writing my final paper in rhetoric class on the colour "pink" and examining advertisements that reflect how people understand its connotations, and how that's changed.
(For example, I found this insulation company ad reading "just because it's pink doesn't mean it's not tough.") It is from 2002.
For people a little older than I am/with a better memory, can someone explain to me how "pink" was perceived before it became acceptable for males to wear it? What happened? I don't remember what changed, or how it changed.
