I love this photo for the way the angle makes the tulips appear to get in your face with their pinkness. So many folk socialised as female will tell you “I can’t have pink!”, usually because they’ve had bad experiences with the colour.
For me, returning pink to the category of ordinary colours that I could like just as much as any other if I wished to required dealing with internalised misogyny. No excuses like “it just doesn’t suit me”, just admitting that I didn’t want to be associated with it because it represents the femininity considered by society to be lesser.
