They're jumping to the rescue of women in general so it is white knighting.

And that gif is supposed to say "wacist" not "racist".

If anything, I was jumping to the rescue of men who want to throw pink. This is nonsense. What's the most manliest type of BBQ? I don't want any of that vinegar BBQ because it projects feminine.

Perhaps that’s because masculine colors are perceived to be simply colors. Pray tell what a masculine color is other than what toy manufacturers define it as. The idea of feminine colors exists to exclude women from men’s spaces. No one needs a pink baseball bat, for example. But gosh durn, giving a girl a pink baseball bat so to include her, also excludes her.

Interesting that men’s sports teams will wear purple but not pink. Except for EF Education cycling. They rock pink, proudly.

I dig purple. My alma mater's main color is purple. Purple Rain is one of my favorite albums. Just not a good disc color IMO. Usually too dark.

I’ve lost every purple disc I’ve owned other than the midnight blue/dark purple Gstar Leopard I was stupid enough to fall in love with. I kind of want to lose it just to get the inevitable over with.
