    I'm trying to think of a polite, discreet way to say this...but I'm not having much luck. I might as well just say it: I have seen the expression "Think pink" used in relation to homosexuality, effectively expressing affirmation of the gay lifestyle. It is entirely possible "Live pink" is something along the same line.

    I actually hope I'm wrong on this one.

    Re: idiom

    One of my friends looked for this statement "THINK PINK " in a site called Answers.com - Online Dictionary, Encyclopedia and much more and I checked it and here is the history of "THINK PINK"

    History

    In 1979, a group of young Italian rock climbers began to adapt a free-climbing technique with minimal equipments to enjoy freedom of movement and connect with nature without the burden of gear. They introduced a different approach to staying in tune with nature as well as a new style of attire which places equal emphasis on both style and function. At that time, the color pink was known to stand for freedom and so it was used as the signature for THINK PINK to represent the longing for a lifestyle free of burden.




    So I think that "Think Pink" means think freely. Check my language if I used the word "freely" in a wrong way


    Thank you very much Greg for your care and patience
