GPOY: Tiara Edition

GPOY Tiara Edition

GPOY Tiara Edition

The most revolutionary part of this picture? The absence of pink. I’m not kidding here: go to any children’s wear store and look around: PINKPINKPINKPINKPINK as far as the eye can see, right up to the boy’s department, which has every colour except pink. Why? Seriously, why? Is it in fact essential that total strangers be able to tell our children’s sex from three furlongs away? Or is it, come to think of it, kinda freaky, not to mention tacky?

I think you know my answer.

  1. If we read in the paper that some African country had a culture where they identified their girls by color but not their boys, we’d wonder about their attitude towards gender and advertising, and we’d think it was oppressive, wouldn’t we?

  3. When I was a kid in the UK the pink thing wasn’t as dominant as it is here in North America. Anyway everyone knows that green is for girls…

  4. When I was a kid, nobody had the tech to sex embroyos, so all baby shower gifts were white, green or yellow. I like it. We don’t need to start sexual advertising for our daughters before puberty even if you think we need to do it after that point.
