"I bet it's pink," "It's definitely bubblegum pink" and "I know it's #FF94A4," are all phrases meant to refer to the possible color of a person's genitals. It's an overtly sexual comment, with the connotation being that a pink vagina is an attractive or desirable one.

What Do Girls On TikTok Think About 'It's Pink' Comments?

The responses to the "It's pink" genre of comments are split, with some women wholeheartedly embracing the characterization, likely due to the idea that pink genitals are generally considered attractive. Moreover, the ubiquity of such comments seems to have normalized them in some online circles. Some girls on TikTok can even be seen responding to the comments by miming along to an infantile sound that says, "How do you know? How do you know?"

Other women are made more uncomfortable by sexually charged "compliments," with one TikToker noting that such comments seem to imply that men are only attracted to children and white women. In fact, many TikTokers have documented the practice of young men on the app making "horny edits" and commenting "pink" on videos posted by very, very young girls. This practice is often brushed off as a "joke."

What Does 'It's Grippy' / 'Chicago Grip Reaper' Mean?

"It's pink" and color hex codes aren't the only ways in which people are describing women's genitals in the name of "compliments" online. Other phrases that are often used refer to the "grip" of a person's vagina, with the implication being that a tight or "grippy" vagina is an attractive one. An unfortunate victim of "grippy" comments is Chloe Woodward, formerly known as Vine star ChloeLMAO. After a video of her being "quirky" went viral on TikTok, many men began to refer to Chloe as the "Chicago Grip Reaper.
