Why all the pink?

Am i the only one who is tired of everything being pink for baby girls? Do people not know that there are other colors out there? I went to go get some clothes for my niece out of her room and i swear it looks like her draws are filled with pepto bismol

  • I always said that I didn't want to have lots of pink when I had a daughter, I am not a girly girl myself. But after have 2 boys and all that blue I gladly welcomed the change of pink! lol I agree though, there is too much of it. Some purple, light green and even some baby blue would be nice.

  • Thats just how our culture is today. Pink is automatically a girl, but yellow can be a boy or girl. Same with green or purple.Kids are conditioned by who brings them up when they are little to like all pink or blue or whatever color.

  • Im not I love pink! But I also do purple like when I painted the furniture in her room one piece is pink another is purple. Pink is always going to be a cute color for girls.

  • My daughter wore a lot of green, yellow, and purples when she was little because my favorite color is green and every one knew it.

  • I love pink on my daughter! But with her red hair and blue eyes, I look for cute girlie things in blue too.

  • I hate pink. I think its a very ugly color. If I ever had a girl it would be Purple and Green.

  • The only reason I would dress a girl baby in pink is so no one would call her a boy :) My son gets called a girl when he is wearing blue, and he is a very masculine looking baby. It doesn't help that his favorite toy (that he picked from the store himself) is a pink stuffed animal :) But I'm not going to force society's views on him, if he wants a pink toy, he can have a pink toy :)

  • I hate pink. I'm actually glad I'm having another boy, I seriously wouldn't know what to do with a girl. I know I'd definitely not dress her like she fell into a bottle of pepto bismol though.... Some pink is fine, but people go overboard sometimes.
