Just a Face and a Caption: Pink Means Feminine get usage counts

It's a beautiful picture but there's no way to look at Aurora and Peach in Princesses Prefer Pink and tell which is for which page. This should really have a non-princess to tell the difference. What about Hermione?

Current image looks like anything female and pink, so I'd not mind its removal. Your reason also has a point: It's better for Princesses Prefer Pink. Current, by the way.

The Hermione pic is good, pending something better.
In uffish thought
Hermione works a lot okay.

Maybe it would be best to have a picture of a woman in pink surrounded by people in other colors like.

I don't see how the photo of Emma Watson is better than the Princess Aurora (?) image.

No, the other one.
[up][up]Something like that might work. No idea about the suggestion, since it won't load for me. Probably on my side with my temporarily lazy connection.

[up][up][up]That's very good; there's the contrast between her femininity and color, and the rest of the dull courtroom.

[up]On imgur, if it helps.

[up][up]Less trope overlap.

Helps a lot, thanks. Yes, that works well, though it might be a little cramped if you reduce the size to fit.

There's also the concern about the other women, though the one to the right is more business-like, and the two in the back left look a little less feminine, though they're also wearing colours similar to pink.

What would be a good crop of that, since I think that would be better than just shrinking it? Just the front table?

How about this:

Since the current is better for Princesses Prefer Pink, would anyone mind if we put it there?

There's already a fine image on Princesses Prefer Pink... I'm not really convinced this one's better. More of a lateral move.

As much as I hate to be a spoilsport, Maddy's pic is great but doesn't fit the trope.

The form of the pink is best done with elegant clothing, and even if the lady surrounds herself with pink (like the walls on her bedroom and the furniture), but even something "manly" being colored pink would count for this trope.

Admittedly, reading the description, it's very, very vague as to how far this extends; on the one hand, it sounds like it's all about outfits. On the other hand, you have the bolded.

The very first sentence, the statement of the trope bare of any qualifiers or analysis, is present is For many modern cultures, the color pink has become the color meaning femininity, in all its forms.

...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
Willbyr's right. The reason the gun doesn't work is the same reason a princess doesn't work (besides the overlap). It's only feminine for those who like guns or princesses. We should have something more simple that anyone who likes pink can agree is feminine. Maybe a baby.

Edit: There's also the Powerpuff Girls bedroom or the Ashley's from Recess.

At the very least, that pink gun belongs in Image Links.

...I don't see why the pink gun doesn't work.

The courtroom is my second choice.

According to the page the pink gun can count (and may be put in image links) but the idea that should be portrayed is "femininity in all its forms" and "the form of the pink is best done with elegant clothing." Of course feminine is a general kind of thing. I don't know how there could possibly be an image that portrays general femininity.
