To be fair, OP really had no reason to start explaining that kind of thing to the customer in the first place. First rule of retail: let idiots be idiots.

I agree with 96. perhaps the customer wasn't being intentionally homophobic? maybe they were misinformed about breeding practices? like maybe "male dogs are attracted to the color red" or something. when I was younger I used to think something similar about birds and yellow. Lol. ignorance, eh?

a long time, pink was actually used for a boy and blue for a girl. but honestly color of a collar or anything for that matter shouldnt be a big deal....society has us brainwashed.

transgendered people are born one gender (genetically) but physically and socially become another gender through genital and other surgeries and the use of hormone therapy.

Classical Hermaphrodites have both sets of genitals and can be genetically either, mentally either|both genders. But they are really called intersex. This condition appears with a wide variety of genetics beyond simple XX, XY. Infants that appear to have been born female but have partial androgen insensitivity will not menstruate and have XY chromosomes, despite appearing physically female. This is usually not caught until puberty. Adrenal hyperplasia can cause an XX fetus to apparently have been born male. X and XXY, XYY also all exist on the human spectrum. Sexuality is extremely complex and diverse mentally and physically, a fascination of mine.

59, If there is a mutation with a persons sex genes such as the physical appearance of a female but XY chromosomes, would it be more likely for the individual to be attracted to males or females? And if the person is attracted to males, does that make the person gay because genetically it is male? Or straight because it's physically a female? Or does it all depend on what the person identifies itself with? Everything gets so confusing when a gene mutates.

purple/violet had historically been associated with royalty. if it's a color that would give a king respect, it's definitely not a feminine color. That said, color association with gender varies entirely by region. The US doesn't consider purple "royal" because the US doesn't like royalty. Some cultures associate colors the west sees as benign with death or war.

Tl;dr: no color is really associated with a gender anyway

I actually always saw red as a masculine strong color. And I have always loved red collars for dogs! must be because of that cartoon with the stray dog and Oliver cat. haha

No need to be harsh, after all there are many movies where you see through a dogs eyes and it's black and white. In fact, dogs seeing in black in white is used frequently. Snap's not a dog, how would they know what colors they see?

Actually #24, what #8 said is correct. While people often associate the word "color-blind" with seeing in black-and-white, that isn't what it means. The word color-blind can mean seeing only certain colors (as you explained) OR none at all. #8 merely said that dogs are color blind, not that they only saw in black-and-white. You're the one who ASSUMED they meant the latter, while they could merely have been pointing out that dogs are color-blind to certain colors (like red) which is true.

According to the most recent scientific studies dogs can see blue and everything else is a sort of orange color. That's why they have trouble finding a red ball in green grass. It all looks orang-ish to them.

I always thought they could see green. My brother was given a beagle puppy when we were kids, and we bought a $1 sack of dog toys for him, all happening to be lime green, and trained him to chew the toys and not the furniture. The dog apparently took note of the color, because later on he wouldn't chew any new toys unless they were lime green. However, he did chew up my lime green socks. So I always assumed he could see the color green.

As 143 said, dogs only have 2 color sensitive cells in their eyes, as opposed to the 3 that humans have. Since the missing cell is red, then technically the dog actually COULDN'T see red.

Did you really just copy and paste the same reply to two comments?

And there's no need to insult someone's intelligence for stating misinformation, especially when they were probably joking.

And if you ARE going to insult the intelligence of two different people for the same reason, at last display enough creativity to come up with two different ways to do it.
