Pink, Blue, Orange or Seafoam green, Who the Heck Cares?
I started thinking the other day (I do that sometimes when my kids are sleeping, haha) about colors and why people get all weird about certain colors for certain genders. I personally, am of the thought that a color is a color, no more, no less, so if my son likes pink then who the hell cares, its just a color, right. I mean, who decided that pink was for girls and blue was for boys? I didnt read it in my bible so I am pretty sure that when we were created God didnt designate colors for males and females. How did we get to where we are today where men dont want their boys wearing pink or coloring with the pink crayon etc...? Who decided pink was girly? And for that matter, why is there a double standard? Why can girls wear whatever color they want but boys shouldnt wear "girly colors"? Girls can play softball and be cool, but a male ballet dancer is assumed gay? HUH? What man wouldnt want to hang out with girls in leotards all day? Anyway, what are your thought and opinions?
