i reblog this every single time
this is my favorite post on this whole website
Fun fact: (genetic) men see fewer shades of red than (genetic) women do because the gene that allows for the color perception of red exists only on the X chromosome, so women have twice the red-perception powers. The theory is, because women were typically gatherers, they needed to be able to tell the difference between poisonous berries and non-poisonous ones based on their color. (source)
So, to a man, something may appear to be simply red. But to a woman, it can be ruby, brick, rust, maroon, crimson… or blood orange.
I’m a woman an this is fuckin red.
