Blue for a boy, pink for a girl.

It was not always so…

    I was always bothered by the blue/pink dichotomy — and so clothed my baby in such items as handmade red checkered tshirts. Currently, we have a commercially produced pink (plus lavender) mania among little girls in our country. Dreadful!


  2. There is a wonderful painting in ourNational Gallery of a gentleman wearing extraordinary pink robes and the star of the Order of the Bath.Pink was used for dressing boys in the past, but somehow a cultural shift took place.All the little girls in Europe seem to bedeck themselves in pink and silver these days. It can be very fetching.Pink combined with an ill-chosen shade of lavender could be a bit OTT, I agree.
