Prejudice is Not Colorblind

So the University of Iowa painted its visiting locker room pink and some people are upset.

"Critics say the use of pink demeans women, perpetuates offensive stereotypes about women and homosexuality, and puts the university in the uncomfortable position of tacitly supporting those messages."

You can read more about what pink represents here. If you follow through with the connotation of the color pink, then movies like this should come under attack too. And this singer. But not this singer.

Pink is the new purple.
