  • Sure. If they want to wear pink, why shouldn't they.

    Does anyone look twice at a girl in blue?

  • lol It depends on WHAT it is. If its underwear, then uh no. If it's a Ralph Lauren strawberry polo like my son has, then ok. If its a Hanna Montana wig, no. If its a shirt supporting breast cancer research, yes.

  • Do you think that girls should wear blue?

    and i don't think "should" is the right word.

    My DS1 loves the color pink. I got him pink goggles and pink arm floaties that go great with his Cars swim trunks. lol

  • the assignment of gender to colors is silly, and arbitrary. 100 years ago pink was considered more appropriate for boys than for girls.

  • Sure, if they want. There are a few boys in my kids' school who like pink and wear it from time to time. I have discussed with my kids why it would be mean and ignorant if someone picked on them on the basis of what color they choose to wear.
