When shopping for baby gifts, everyone knows that blue is for boys and pink is for girls. But now there's evidence that those colors may be more than just marketing gimmicks. According to a new study in the Aug. 21 issue of Current Biology women may be biologically programmed to prefer the color pink ó or, at least, redder shades of blue ó more than men.

Wow thats amazing. Ironically I picked a pink cellphone when we changed our plan, lol.
I choose pink because its the only way to keep the guys at work from using my tools....and not returning them!
(Yes, I have to spray paint everything with pink markings or it'll walk out of my toolbag).

LOL.. good thinking LA Woman!

I just hope you won't have to paint your truck pink so they won't drive off with it!

I hated pink even as a little girl and I still can't stand it to this day. My favourite colour is Royal blue and dark Purple.
Does this make me any less of a woman !?

I never liked Pink -

No Moose - it doesn't make you any less of a woman, as it doesn't me.


I'll take blue over any color ~

Pink reminds me of the first early flush of dawn, and early dawn is my favorite color but I wouldn't choose that shade for my own apparel. No offense intended to those who do, especially if you're a realtor.
