What do you all think about the whole "pink is for girls, blue is boys" thing? I did some research and found out this is completely arbitary and pretty recent, too. Until about 1945, blue was for girls (connected to feminine ocean and water) and pink was for boys (connected to red, sun, masculine fire). Personally, I hate pink. I won't wear it and I prefer not to dress my daughter in it. I dislike anything that could limit me or my child in any way (you can't have that, it's not pink, etc). it also drives me crazy that all the little girl clothes are pink with flowers, cats and hearts, and all the little boy clothes are sports and race cars. How about something neutral? More choices, please!
