The "pink aisle" = gulp
Glad to see I'm not alone in thinking this.

I guess I don't get it.

How is this different that putting wargames on one aisle and Eurogames on another aisle?

(I have a hard enough time finding proper junk food in a grocery store without it all being mixed together with all the fruits and vegetables for some type of weird social experiment.)

Are girls going to play wargames just because they come in pink?

Retailers have determined this is the best way to sell. Some things won't ever change.

Wait till she gets into a clothes shop and finds that all the men have grey and brown stuff in long only and all the women have all the colours and all the shapes. Bet she won't be moaning then.

I hate women's clothes. They're so uncomfortable. It's like they make them uncomfortable on purpose. Guys' clothes just look so much more relaxing.

Edit: Also, I hate pink.

Or the fact that any department store divides their store up like this

60% womens clothes
10% perfume
10% jewellery
10% accessories (purses, clips etc.)
5% luggage
3% men's clothes
2% electronics
