Gender and Colors

I had a discussion just a few minutes ago with our Secretary. She said she always remembers which color tags go on one of our products because "Red" is a girl's color, and "Yellow" is neutral. (The Red tags go on a product with the same name as some girls, the Yellow tags go on a product named after a letter.)

The odd thing is, I've always thought of Red as being a rather masculine color, personally. So I thought I'd whip up an informal poll and see what everyone else thought. So tell me, am I on crack, or am I just weird?
