Most male friends that I know have limited vocabulary regarding colors. Where we have turquoise, they say greenish blue. Where we have violet, they say reddish blue. Colors to them are always "ish" plus another color. Funny eh.. I guess as long as we women understand what color they are referring to.. it's ok rite??

Maybe some words just sounds too feminine/gay due to some cultural stereotypes.. I use the "ish" in colors too.

Not men I know many diffrent colors, of course I am not into most things like the average man, my color palet is a little more sophisticated then the rest.

Funny. I am a woman and I say greenish blue and reddish blue. I do not use the term turquoise. I do know the word and what it stands for but do not use the term. Sometimes I say violet but I like reddish blue better. I think it expresses the colors better. Why do you think this is female terminology and this is male terminology. I do not think it applies.
