The No Pink baby-shower for Sal got us debating the colour coding of babies. It's not about having a complete aversion to pink but more about the fact that in Western society, it is almost impossible to avoid dressing girls in pink and boys in blue. My choices of mainly navy and grey (I should be bringing up a baby in France) have me endlessly saying 'actually, she's a little girl....just dressed in boy's colours!' Goodness knows what would be happening if I was dressing a boy in pink.
Anyway, the baby-shower theme did prove a challenge as it's virtually impossible to shop for baby clothes without buying from a gender specific section. But we did manage to seek out some of the less pink/polka dotted/floral outfits. Now Sal just has to make a sign that says 'yes, she is a girl in boy's clothing.'
