I think you need counseling. Does this apply to race as well? Imagine if all girls applied this theory to relationships...

Then one of two conditions exist.

Condition 1. You are in fact a woman. Woman look hot in pink (some of them anyway). You are clearly one of them.

Condition 2. You are lying. Men look stupid in pink. And you look stupid when you wear pink. But never, ever hot.


These of course where just jokes but right in the text that you quoted from me I said that there were exceptions to every rule, the point of which was to deter people from then listing all of the exceptions that came to their minds. You clearly missed the point. Much like a woman would, so perhaps condition 1 applies.

I have a white ipad 4 and feel manly everytime I pick it up.

What is feminine is asking if your white iPad makes you look like a girly man.

Idk if it just me but I always stick to black because the white iPhones n iPads get dirty and start to turn brown along the side where it would generally be in your palm and the home button, I've even seen it on the iPhone5. Soo that's why I always stay to black

It's really more a case of the iPad Mini being feminine while the full sized iPad is masculine.

iPad Mini was designed for girls wasn't it?

Fun Fact. Apple was going to release a pink Mini but it was deemed too masculine.

It all boils down to personal preference. Although, I don't own any white Apple products (22 year old guy). I only own a white iPhone 3, but that was given to me for free.

I have a black iPod classic, a black iPhone 4S, and a black iPad 4. My laptop (gateway) is black, too. I just think that black Apple products seem more sleek and sophisticated. But white Apple products seem pretty neat, too. I just dislike how they show dirt easier than their colored counterparts.

That's all fine and good. But the white ones are more feminine than the black. It's science.

If your identity and everything you are is based on what color iPad you got, you don't have any character to begin with. Grow up. Do you want to be known as someone that was afraid to buy something because of what others thought of you? How cool does that sound?

I think people are a little too harsh on the OP. Most people posted probably also have a white iDevice.

Of all honestly, it is girly. But you just have to used to it, it kind of rubs on you. Just like when Obama first started running for president, must people didn't like him. But now he has supporters, no, it does not mean he is supported by everyone.

I'm 25 male with white iDevices. I contemplated black, but my partner has black iDevices and I didn't want to mix them up. Does that make me the bottom?

This. Stop living other people's lives and do what you believe is cool. (As for me - I don't find white feminine at all. Pink and purple on the other hand..)

I thought the "Oh look at me I'm James Bond because I have a black gadget" ridiculousness disappeared with the Razr V3. Now it's just boring and dated.

This completely. Trying to conform to a certain image and letting others dictate what you can and can't be is the lamest thing ever. And I never knew white was feminine? Do men still have white cars? White laptops? White houses and white stuff around the house? When I think of the common stereotypical female color, it was always pink. White just seemed like a clean look to me. But I don't give a damn. I could wear a pink shirt and feel like a man

I have a white iPad, so that makes me girly...

but it matches my white Mustang GT limited, so that makes me manly!...

although I do have a pink smartcover on my iPad, so yeah, I'm girly...

until you see all that blood on the smartcover from my deer hunt last weekend, so I'm manly...

but it was actually a deer photo hunt so I could post some shots of some cute white tailed deer for my "I Love Deer" blog during which I tripped on a rock and gashed my forehead on a branch which spilled some blood on my iPad case... making me girly...

I know, I know, looks are deceiving.

Please stop embarrassing yourself. Looking at your icon, that's you right? You are a full grown adult, so why the nonsense? Honestly wondering why the 4th grade replies. Seems bizarre
