I went to try and buy some nice shoes for my 1 year old daughter, who has just started walking, last week. The shop assistant, after mistaking my little girl for a boy (she was wearing a grey top with red poppies on it), showed me their range of shoes for girls.... they were all pink!!! I politely asked to see some other colours and was told but they are boys shoes I asked what the difference was..... nothing except the colour. When I asked if I could buy the red pair for my daughter the women looked at me like I was abusing my child.
How dose everyone else out there feel about this stupid colour gender thing?? Kids are kids surely it doesn't matter what colour they wear. Until my little girl can tell me what she wants to wear I get to choose what she wears and I will obviously chose to dress her in the colours I like. Why do people seem to have such a problem with me dressing my daughter in red/blue/brown/green/yellow in fact any colour other than pink?
Sorry about the rant, but the total stupidity of genders only wearing certain colours just flabbergasts me, anyone else feel the same?
