Pretty in Pink;
locker rooms, offices, and lavender furniture

Fortunately, I'm comfortable with both my masculinity and my bright pink walls. But I hope those protestors don't come visiting!
The pink visitors' locker room at the University of Iowa's stadium is making some people see red.
The locker room for visiting football teams at Iowa is pretty in pink.
Several professors and students joined the call Tuesday for the athletic department to do away with the pink showers, carpeting and lockers, a decades-long Hawkeye football tradition.
Critics say the use of pink demeans women, perpetuates offensive stereotypes about women and homosexuality, and puts the university in the uncomfortable position of tacitly supporting those messages.
