Pink For Girls And Blue For Boys. Said Who and Why? Do We Really Know?

Pink For Girls And Blue For Boys. Said Who and Why? Do We Really Know?

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!!
