Girls Can Like Blue, But It's News When Boys Like Pink?
July 22, 2011
Breaking news: boys like pink. That’s what Good Morning America reported earlier this week. I know, that’s news? Aren’t there other more pressing issues to discuss? Plus, I can’t believe people are still hung up on “gender color wars” (yes, they used that term) and still making a distinction between “boy colors” and “girl colors.”
What’s the harm in boys liking the color pink? The same as the harm in girls liking blue…NOTHING! So if your son wants to wear something pink or zip around in a pink scooter like some of the boys in the GMA clip, why not? That is unless you have a problem with your girl doing the same with blue.
What do you think? Are you on the same page or do you still believe in boy colors and girl colors? Weigh in in the comments below.
