Um, really, don't worry about it. Get the pad you like. Even if it's purple. How's that going to hurt you?
I work part time at an REI in the camping department, and believe me, a bunch of guys get the women's prolite for just the reasons you mention--they like the size, the r-value, and, especially, that it has fewer holes and more foam, and is consequently more comfortable for them. I reassure them regularly. They laugh and buy it.
I myself am a Ridgerest person but I seem to be a minority.
