Isn't He Pretty In Pink?

South Carolina's prisons director on Tuesday defended a policy of punishing inmates found performing public sex acts by dressing them in pink...

The policy allows prison officials to discipline inmates found performing sex acts in front of corrections officers by making them trade their customary tan jumpsuit in for a pink one, which must then be worn for three months.
Of course a lawsuit has been filed. A Mr. Sherone Nealous, misunderstood citizen now unfortunately incarcerated, filed a Federal lawsuit claiming the South Carolina Corrections Department "is placing inmates' lives and physical well-being in danger." Never mind the fact that the policy helps to protect prison workers from aggressive male inmates.

Two points however, 1) Mr. Nealous and his fellows are prisoners, that means they are in P-R-I-S-O-N: prison. Prisoners do as they're told, they aren't in prison for fun or esteem building. 2) It doesn't appear than anyone has lost their life or been physically injured because of the policy.

Have some over-inflated male egos been popped? Most likely, but so what?
That's why they picked pink, to take the overly testosteroned down a button-hole or two. After all, would blue jumpsuits have the same effect on female inmates that pink does on males? No. The court should dismiss this lawsuit. Besides, I bet Mr. Sherone is positively pretty in pink.

Since this story is running prominently in the gehy media, I'm sure we can also expect the Nazi analogies quicker than Joe Solmonese can say Heinrich Himmler.
