Blue for girls, pink for boys – or the other way around? – Pulzus survey

Prejudices about colors are the subject of constant debate. Some say there are “girlish and boyish” colours; others think there aren’t.
How and why did this develop?

In the mid-19th century, probably in England, it became common for pink to be the color of boys and blue to be the color of girls. The reasoning is already somewhat obscured, but the origin of this phenomenon might have been that parents wanted to dress their sons as little a gentleman, and the men in the army wore red uniforms at the time.
By the beginning of the 20th century, this colour rule became common. Based on the ideology of clothing manufacturers, pink is a strong, masculine, while (light) blue is a more subtle, feminine colour.
Then sometimes, between the 20s and 40s, things turned around for unknown reasons and have remained so to this day.

Pink has been the eternal topic of debate ever since.

We were interested in users’ opinions of the Pulzus app. 59% of respondents think that a boy/man could wear pink clothes, while only 32% think they should not.

Do you think men can get away with wearing pink clothes?
