Politically correct colors

I wasn't aware frequencies in the visible spectrum had any particular political implications. However, now that this has become an issue its clear the congress needs to take this up with the sun and and light bulb makers. The sun must be forced to stop emitting these offensive frequencies, and bulb makers must similarly be forced to build filters into their products. Naturally Home Depot will be expected to stop selling pink building products like toilets and sinks, ceramic tile and paint. Owens Corning must immediately halt production and distribution of their "pink" line of fiberglass insulation products -- after all, nobody wants their attic to project the "girlie man" image. Mixing of a gallon of white paint and and red paint to produce the color which shall not be named will of course have to be criminalized and made punishable as a "hate crime".
A University of Iowa law professor said she has received death threats after voicing her objections over the pink visitors' locker room at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City.

Erin Buzuvis, 29, who moved from Boston to Iowa City to begin teaching at the law school, said she and several friends, colleagues and neighbors have been concerned for months about the message behind the locker rooms. She said the locker room promotes negative stereotypes.

Former Hawkeye football coach Hayden Fry had the visiting team's locker room painted pink in the 1970s. University officials have kept the color and expanded its use with the renovation under way at the stadium.

The carpeting, metal lockers, brick walls, sinks, shower floor -- even the urinals -- are pink.

"I've heard this is a way to honor a great coach, and Fry was a great coach," Buzuvis said. "But I don't think it does him any honor to perpetuate what is seen by many as a sexist and homophobic gesture."
