Pink stinks!

I just read about this Website this morning:

http://www.pinkstinks.co.uk/

And I can think of several people that could find it interesting. Basically, this Website was started by a British mother of two little girls who was sick of the pink toys and sex culture invading her house and jealous of her twin sister, who had two little boys and a house full of dinosaurs and other more interesting toys in a various array of colors. I haven’t had much time to look at it yet, but their T-shirts look cool. They go after toys that are “too” pink, that promote stereotyped roles for little girls or that want to make them look and act like young adults. You know, like high heels for babies or the Polly Pocket Races to the Mall cars…

I guess they haven’t had time yet to post the dance pole for young girls, or the padded bikini tops for 7-year-olds that were recently pulled from the shelves. There certainly is work to do in this area!

Sometimes I’m really glad I have a boy!

    Well, this is sickening, to say the least. But don’t worry, I do have a girl and nevertheless had never heard about those things.
