Notice only 20 shades of gray

It’s been proven that women actually have an acute ability to pick up subtle differences in colors

In response to that last comment^^

Yes. It comes from the Hunter-Gatherer days.

Women were the gatherers. They had to be able to discern between the different shades of colors to know which plants were poisonous and which were not.

Men were out hunting, so they didn’t have to worry about that.

Which is why women see “Blood orange” and “crimson” and “scarlet” etc while guys just see “red”.

Also it’s way more likely for males to inherit color-blindness because the defect is located on the X-chromosome. When a female has one “broken X,” there’s a good chance that the other will make up for it. When a male does, they’re screwed because there’s no back up.

There’s a little simplified human genetics lesson for ya’ll.
