Pink Tropes

"Too much pink energy is dangerous!"

Ahh, pink. Variously defined as a lighter shade of red or a hue between red and purple, pink has become a fundamental color term in the English language. The symbolic use of pink is ubiquitous in modern culture, but many of its most deeply-ingrained meanings in the west are not even Older Than Steam. Pink has usually been, this past century, associated with the female gender (especially young girls), sweetness, candy, love and Diabetes. In Japanese culture it is the color of spring, but also death, since it is the color of blossoming cherry trees.
