Postfeminist Aesthetics?

"New York attributes the popularity of Millennial Pink to the blurring of gender roles in the 21st century. Pink now represents androgyny, not femininity; it’s the “genderless mascot” of a more progressive generation. Plus it’s “flattering and generally pleasing to the eye,” which makes for good photos."

  1. The only way to make pink "genderless" is to see it used in the context outside of femininity (i.e. used by men/all genders/ in an agender-based way). And if that is what is happening, I would assume it then wouldn't be described as a "postfeminist aesthetic" because it would be removing itself from femininity, which is an important part of the post-feminism ideology. That feminism is feminine.
