In his Ted Talk promoting Google Glass, Google CEO Sergey Brin called smart phones “emasculating.” Since this is how he had his Tesla Model S painted, I’m not sure he should be allowed to use the word emasculating anymore.
BLOGGER COMMENTARY: Ah...well. What to say? Outside the playpen? Color Psychology says pink promotes physical tranquillity, nurture, warmth, femininity, love, sexuality,
survival of the species; as well as inhibition, emotional
claustrophobia, emasculation and physical weakness.
The key here, I think, is "emasculation." Sergey, as you recall, feels
using a smart phone is emasculating. Might be this apparent obsession
with pink. "Too much pink is physically draining and can be somewhat
emasculating." This, thus, is the vehicle of an emasculated anti-hero?
