About

I Know It's Pink, also known as I Bet It's Bubblegum Pink, refers to the widespread phenomenon of TikTok users (often teens) using variations of the phrase "I know it's pink," "it's grippy" or a hex code for a shade of pink known as #FF94A4 when commenting on a TikTok of an attractive girl or woman. Such "pink" comments have existed on TikTok since at least early 2021, with others like the Grip Reaper meme existing since 2022 and TikTok hornyposting memes such as Ichigo scream as related trends that took off in late 2022. The rise of such comments led to various discussions in early 2023 about the nature of "internet compliments" and how they tend to veer overtly sexual to the point of Teen Sexual Harassment in certain Gen Z internet circles.

Origin

On January 24th, 2023, Redditor /u/snowyjabroni made a post on /r/offmychest, detailing how they figured out what "It's pink" comments meant, adding that the shade of pink is often only naturally found on young girls below the age of 12. They discussed how many boys and men making these comments likely don't know or think deeply enough about what they are saying. The post gathered over 300 upvotes in a week (seen below).

"It's bubblegum pink" please stop. I don't even think some of you understand what you're saying (self.offmychest) 358 submitted 6 days ago * (last edited 5 days ago) by snowyjabroni Edit because I didn't realize this was as unknown to people: What this entails is people on tiktok referring to women's genitalia as "bubblegum pink", ultimately sexualizing that color of genitalia even though that color is only ever naturally found on girls bellow the ages of 8-12. Posts of women and young girls just being themselves are full of these comments as well as "it's grippy", "who's gonna stop me", and things of that nature. A young girl was even harassed off of her vr game due to people following her from her tiktok onto the game and making these same jokes to her in voice chat. Edit #2: Okay just to make things clear, I'm not trying to imply that men that make this joke are pedos. What I'm saying is that the joke itself is in that ballpark and that's why it's disgusting. I'm sure a ton of these guys are just following the crowd and what others are doing, but that doesn't excuse them from criticism. Also, just to explain a little clearer, women can have almost any shade of pink/red genitalia. Most of the time, with age, your genitalia tends to become muted/darker in color. Are there some instances where a female might have a lighter color into their adulthood? Sure, it's possible. What's concerning about it though is that a number of these comments are underneath videos of children, the ones with lighter pink areas. So in this case, these men are in fact pointing out their youth in a sexual way. OG post---- I've grown up around predominantly guys my whole life. This had me at a point in time where I was constantly also making fun of women, putting them down, meanwhile I myself am a woman. I finally grew out of it after graduating high school. —————— All that is more of context, but here's the real issue. Stop saying s--- like "it's bubblegum pink". I could go on and on about why you shouldn't say r*pe jokes but clearly a good chunk of you guys don't see any issue in that. It's really disgusting to see how popular a pedophilic joke has become. That's literally whats happening. You might not know because you have never seen nor touched a woman in your life, but it is not often "bubblegum pink". In fact, with age, your genitalia begins to darken/grey. You know what that means, right? You're sexualizing a trait that not many grown women actually have. That is something mainly prepubescent children would have. Grown woman may still have it, but that doesn't change the fact you're commenting it on posts of children. Do better, or at least keep your tasteless jokes out of innocent women and underaged girls' comment sections.

Chicago Grip Reaper

Grip Reaper, also known as Chiraq Grip Reaper or Chicago Grip Reaper, is a catchphrase used by people to refer to a video featuring former Vine star ChloeLMAO, whose real name is Chloe Woodward. The video features a blonde Chloe wearing headphones and seated on a stoop as they deliver a quirky monologue that ends with "Just kidding! I live in the old city of Chicago [incomprehensible noises]." In 2022, internet users parodied the moniker "Chiraq Grim Reaper," used to describe late Chicago rapper "Lil Reese," and used it to express their amusement at Chloe's quirked up personality and expressing their attraction to Chloe.

Ichigo Scream

The Ichigo Scream is a viral video and sound of Bleach character Ichigo Kurosaki's final, hollow form (Vasto Lorde) screaming while appearing red and glowing. In late 2022 and early 2023, a new Ichigo Scream sound emerged that additionally used Dragon Ball character Vegeta's quote, "No! No more! That's It! I Don't Care!" and the Playboi Carti song "No Sl33p." The sound was used to portray thirst or being horny for people, characters and concepts, similar to the Then Something Just Snapped trend.

Behold, the reason why censorship on the ground of harassment will at best do nothing and at worst only hurt innocent people. If people want to be crass and harass others they'll find any way to do it, humans are clever like that.

It also goes without saying, but everything on this page is absolutely despicable.
