My 18 month old nephew loves the color pink. Whenever they take him shopping, his first choice is always something pink. His parents would never buy it for him! kicking and screaming he’d keep trying to get to the pink item that he liked, but he’d be told that pink is for girls and boys are not supposed to have pink stuff. Some clothes, i may understand, are gender specific – like skirts. But he could be asking for something completely gender neutral or gender agnostic, like a pencil or a chair or a coloring book. If its pink, he’s not getting it. Sexism drilled into am impressionable child’s mind, so early in life…
