My son's favourite colour is Pink. His choice of cake/toys/T shirts etc are mostly Pink! And this seems to be a very serious concern and point of disagreement for people around him.
I hear everyone telling him - “No! No! not pink, choose a blue”, and they keep advising me to discourage him from making that choice of Pink every time!
I fail to understand this gender-based colour selection theory and really want to know the logic behind such a predominant social notion.
As the mother of a 2.5 year old boy, I thoroughly enjoy my son’s obsession for pink and take pride in the fact that he understands colours and makes his own decisions when it comes to choosing colors. I appreciate that he has an opinion and is courageous enough to voice it!
By choosing pink over any other colour, he will not become a girl, right? Rather, he is being someone who makes choices irrespective of gender! I am sure no one would have objected if he had chosen any other colour like a green,yellow or blue! Why is a choice of pink as a favorite color by a toddler boy such a serious concern?
As a mother, I could only see that he is fond of colours and likes choosing independently. I think he looks great in pink as he smiles a lot when he lays his hands on pink and looks sooo happy!
So with lots of love, I like it when my son's favourite colour is Pink and that doesn't worry me at all! It rather assures me that in future, he can be a gentleman who pink-loving girls will love too :-)
Lots of love from mumma who loves Pink too!!
