Pink bedrooms – Is pink for boys or for girls?

We recently saw the question posed online and wondered.

Here is a bit of trivia for the guys out there now screaming ”Not in my bedroom!!”:

”In Western culture, the practice of assigning pink to an individual gender began in the 1920s. From then until the 1940s, pink was considered appropriate for boys because being related to red it was the more masculine and decided color, while blue was considered appropriate for girls because it was the more delicate and dainty color, or related to the Virgin Mary. Since the 1940s, the societal norm was inverted; pink became considered appropriate for girls and blue appropriate for boys, a practice that has continued into the 21st century. “ (Wikipedia).

So there!! When your girlfriend or wife wants a little bit of pink in the bedroom, you can always act cool and explain to your friends why pink can also be such a male option.  Even in Des Moines, Iowa.
