“there is absolutely nothing feminine about the colour pink, or, anything bad-luck’ish about the colour black — in itself.” // m. mokhonoana

i’ve always had an issue with pink.

i deemed it too girly, too feminine, too weak of a colour to be able to convey the strength i felt i had, and more-often-than-not, the toughness i wanted to make sure others assumed i had. and so, i turned to black. it did the trick, and there wasn’t much to think about – everything i owned matched.

the issue of pink, however, has become a bit more complicated as of late, as the four year old girl i get to play dress-up with, has become flush with like for the hue of blush. it’s inescapable, and it’s not that i think pink is inherently bad, or goes against this strange ribbon of feminism i’ve weaved into my mind – but, i just don’t want it to become the only choice – and i know i can’t keep it at bay forever. and so, i’ve set a goal to look at pink in a different light. wherein it’s tougher than i think, and that perhaps it’s not just for princesses in fairy tales anymore.
