Just wanting an opinion!
I don't really think so. The colors are used for distinction, and any two arbitrary colors would work. The fact that pink and blue are offensive has more to do with toy isles.
In fact, Pink used to be a masculine color, and Blue was associated with the virgin Mary. Thus baby boys were wrapped in pink and baby girls were wrapped in blue.
I don't think it's sexist, but more specifically, we need to recognize how arbitrary it is, like most things related to gender.
Well, the site needs to differentiate, although purple is prettier (but then some people wouldn't see the difference).
I think it is not sexist as long as it doesn't try to tell you what sort of answers to expect from females just because they are female.
However, it is fairly heteronormative.
Hahaha. I don't think so. It's just to make it quickly simple to identify if a male or female user posted the response.
No. It's just a way to categorize that everyone's familiar with.
No, but I do think the pink is too bright.
Not sexist at all. These colors are simply matches with these sexes. It's a quick and easy way to recognize gender.
It's site called girls ask guys, there needs to be an obvious, slightly brain dead, and easy to tell difference in colour of a question between the sexes. So, what is the best way? Make guys blue and girls pink.
No, not at all. I just don't like the over indication which is female or male.
No, it's a color to determine the users gender.
Nahh I think it's very good for its purpose
Don't they need something to differentiate?
It doesn't bother me
You moron. you really dont have anything better to do with your life do you?
The color of my vomit after eating skittles seems more fair but yes it is sexist and I shall quit Gag now!
No it isn't sexist at all. We shouldn't have to pretend gender doesn't exist. If we did that it would actually destroy the whole point of this site.
Making fun of someone wearing a particular color, because that color doesn't match their gender would be sexist. Being assigned a color based on your gender for the purpose of easy identification just makes logical sense.
I kind of dislike it, but my issue with it is not really so much with the sexism. I don't really see it as being all that sexist, because I can't see it doing any harm. Like, there's not really any harmful stereotypes that just colors can enforce. It's somewhat irritating, but oh well.
I will say, however, that I don't like the binary attitude the color scheme conveys. It might be nitpicky, but I really would like for there to be more inclusive attitudes of non-binary people. Many people actually identify as gender queer, and thus as neither male nor female. And while they may be a minority, I don't really see that as an excuse to exclude them. As such, I'd prefer for there to be some way to include non-binary people, like providing an "other" option for gender, and perhaps a different color all together if that's what it takes. But I know that's highly unlikely to ever happen, especially considering that the site's name itself relies on there being two genders. *rant over*
So yeah. Sorry for going off topic a bit, but that's kind of been bothering me.
In general I find it irksome that any colour determines your gender but for the sake of the website it doesn't bother me because it serves its purpose.
I never thought about that. I don't think it's sexist, I think it has a purpose and it makes sense.
Short answer: no
long answer: nooooooooo.
Yes and no it separates the two but I reallyyyyy love blue
Is it sexist to think that this is sexist? Just kidding, but I don't have a problem with it. I just wish it was purple or red or a soft pink for the girls because the current pink gets annoying.
