  Text 2


  Pretty in pink: adult women do not remember being so obsessedwith the colour, yet it is pervasive in our young girls’ lives. It is not thatpink intrinsically bad, but it is a tiny slice of the rainbow and, thoughit may celebrate girlhood in one way, it also repeatedly and firmly fused girls’identity to appearance. Then it presents that connection, even amongtwo-year-olds, between girls as not only innocent but as evidence of innocence.Looking around, despaired at the singular lack of imagination about girls’ livesand interests.

  Girls' attraction to pink may seem unavoidable, somehowencoded in their DNA, but according to Jo Paoletti, an associate professor ofAmerican Studies, it's not. Children were not colour-coded at all until theearly 20th century: in the era before domestic washing machines all babies worewhite as a practical matter, since the only way of getting clothes clean was toboil them. What's more, both boys and girls wore what were thought of asgender-neutral dresses. When nursery colours were introduced, pink was actuallyconsidered the more masculine colour, a pastel version of red, which wasassociated with strength. Blue, with its intimations of the Virgin Mary,constancy and faithfulness, symbolised femininity. It was not until themid-1980s, when amplifying age and sex differences became a dominant children'smarketing strategy, that pink fully came into its own, when it began to seeminnately attractive to girls, part of what defined them as female, at least forthe first few critical years.

  I had not realised how profoundly marketing trends dictatedour perception of what is natural to kids, including our core beliefs abouttheir psychological development. Take the toddler. I assumed that phase wassomething experts developed after years of research into children's behaviour:wrong. Turns out, according to Daniel Cook, a historian of childhoodconsumerism, it was popularised as a marketing gimmick by clothing manufacturersin the 1930s.

  Trade publicationscounselled department stores that, in order to increase sales, they shouldcreate a "third stepping stone" between infant wear and older kids' clothes. Itwas only after "toddler" became common shoppers' term that it evolved into abroadly accepted developmental stage. Splitting kids, or adults, intoever-tinier categories has proved a sure-fire way to boost profits. And one ofthe easiest ways to segment a market is to magnify gender differences – orinvent them where they did not previously exist.

  26 By saying "it is ... The rainbow"(line 3, Para1), the author means pink _______.

  A should not be the sole representation of girlhood

  B should not be associated with girls' innocence

  C cannot explain girls' lack of imagination

  D cannot influence girls' lives and interests

  27 According to Paragraph 2, which ofthe following is true of colours?

  A Colors are encoded in girls' DNA

  B Blue used to be regarded as the colorfor girls

  C Pink used to be a neutral color insymbolizing genders

  D White is preferred by babies

  28 The author suggests that ourperception of children's psychological devotement was much influenced by________.

  [A] the marketing of products forchildren

  [B] the observation of children's nature

  [C] researches into children's behavior

  [D] studies of childhood consumption

  29. We may learn from Paragraph 4 thatdepartment stores were advised ________.

  A focuses on infant wear and older kids' clothes

  B attach equal importance to different genders

  C classify consumers into smaller groups

  D create some common shoppers' terms

  30. it can be concluded that girl'sattraction to pink seems to be _____.

  A clearly explained by their inborntendency

  B fully understood by clothingmanufacturers

  C mainly imposed by profit-drivenbusinessmen

  D well interpreted by psychologicalexperts
