Just wondering.

I always come across girls who, when I mention pink, are like, "EWW OMG."
I also always thought they were just being immature, thinking it was cool to dislike such a feminine/generic (or stereotypically female) color...

But I dunno. Maybe you gals actually have reasons for disliking it.

Let's hear 'em!

Oh, and if it's an answer like "I just don't like it, meh"... don't even bother answering.
I dislike gold but I don't go around saying "EWW GOLD" whenever people mention it... :D
OMG I hate BoAjjang's smilies 'cause they're gold EWW.

[Edit]
Yeah, guys may not like pink because it is a feminine color...
But then why is it okay for girls to like blue, when that's the 'boy color'?
Haha. Uh-oh, that's a doozy.

Maybe because it's associated with a cliche'd type of response.

In other words, pink is usually associated with females, or associated with cutesy words. Thus, for some people, the natural tendency is to maybe not dislike it, but prefer other colors. =)

Vice versa, why do many men NOT like pink? Point taken.

Pink is not my favorite color, but I wouldn't go around saying "Eww. Pink!" Probably because most people usually associate pink with girls who are extremely feminine, weak, cute, ditzy, etc? :D I don't hate it. Never really thought about this before. Nice topic. :D

Why don't most guys like pink? ^_^

I'm indifferent to pink.

Pink, when by itself, tends to annoy me. Especially this pink. Or is it this? Somewhere in between. Think Barbie.

But, say, if it was this kind of pink instead, I wouldn't mind. I find this pink really nice to look at, even. Especially when mixed with orange. ^_^ I have a bikini of that combination. :D

I guess there's just something about the brightness, near-neon quality of Barbie pink that really sends a negative alert to my brain. Stereotyping pink probably plays a part, but I like to believe I'm mostly over that.

But, hey, I own pink clothes.

I find that reaction very immature too. I wouldn't go about wearing pink myself, but I don't mind it. I'm actually one of the people you'd think would be against pink (I used to be too) but I actually have a very nice shade of pink nail polish....

That's off topic though. I know when I was younger, like a freshman, I disliked baby pink because of the "crowd" it was associated with. Hot pink was fine if it was with black, but baby pink had this baggage off "prep" and I was looked down by the "preps" so I, at least, gained a dislike for everything that went along with them. Now though, since I'm older, I don't mind it. It's a color. I don't want to wear it, but I've had a few friends who wear only pink, so I just role my eyes.

Personally I think light yellow or bright orange is an uglier color but that's off topic.

I despise pink. It's too bright for me. I hate bright colors, with the exception of white.
