Female-only Pink Taxi cabs in Puebla, Mexico are stocked with a beauty kit and aimed at women tired of leering male drivers. The service creates jobs for women, but women's rights activists note it doesn't address the harassment problem. [AP]

DISCUSSION

Why is there SUCH a HUGE problem with the fact that it's pink? Who cares? I don't own a stitch of pink clothing, but damn it, I'm a feminist and I buy all the pink whatever-the-hell-else there is to buy out there (cell phone, IPod, pack of cigarettes, whatever). It's not a crime that some women like and identify with (the color- just a color!) pink. #pinktaxis
