The colour pink is increasingly associated with girls in the UK. Over the last 10 -15 years, more and more children's toys and clothes are segregated into the 'gender-specific' colours of pink and blue. There are different theories about why this might be happening. There is also a campaign to stop the trend; a group has been set up which opposes what they call the "pinkification of girlhood". It is called Pink Stinks.

在英國粉紅色會令人聯想起女孩。在過去的 10 15 年來,越來越多的兒童玩具和服裝都以粉紅色和藍色來區分性別。為什麼會出現這種情況呢?有很多不同的理論。同時也有不少人提出抗議,反對以粉紅色作為女性的象徵,這個反對組織的名字叫 Pink Stinks 粉紅色臭臭 '
