No, I think the whole "pink for women" is actually pretty stupid.

I like the pink theme, and like the ability to theme a bit in general,
but I don't think we should see it as a "appealing to women" thing. In
fact, if we do only blue vs pink, I think we should default to pink

The pink is a bit odd, but I find that I might actually use it myself.
It's a fun and unexpected color.

Although I do think that we need a boring color too. Not everybody
will like pink (regardless of gender).
