In the early 1900's gender-specific colors brought about a great diversity of public opinion. At the time it became generally accepted that pink was for boys and blue more fitting for the girls. Pink was considered a watered down red and a strong color and blue more delicate, danity and prettier for girls. The pink and blue gender rules one hundred years later, have sinced reversed and pink has lost its symbolism of being a strong color.
Not so fast - at West Rusk High School in Texas pink is not only a strong color, training on the pink machines and power racks will in fact Get you Stronger.
