It seems as normal as the world dress boys in blue and girls pink. In fact, we would not at all strange if a girl you put a blue outfit but what if a child what to wear pink? It seems unthinkable, right?
Well, I discovered that in the nineteenth century wore backwards, ie, girls and boys blue rose, though more common than not to do or a color or otherwise, but dressed in neutral colors such as gray, white, brown, veige …
Each color is associated with a meaning and is associated with certain qualities or characteristics. Thus, the blue is identified with the calmness, purity, tranquility, nature (the blue sky or the sea), while red is more about passion, courage, honor, stoicism. Pink could be more innocent version of this color and thus was used in childhood.
At what point is turned the tables? Well it looks like the first signs feminists, the struggle for gender equality, the effort to avoid differences and prejudices between the sexes. They wanted to avoid that already, from small, barriers will be marked distinctions in clothing for infants and was passed to change this tradition. Dressing up a blue boy and a girl in pink, was an act of rebellion against stereotypes. Although it appears that this industrial action fell into a new tradition.
The point is that, without realizing it, and we are making certain conduct prejudiced in infants and there is still too rooted tradition in relation to this issue. Many mothers fleeing her and dress their children as they want, regardless of color association is implied. However, it is a losing battle as the market and society are not yet preperados for a change. Chances are that the girl likes the dolls, 90% of cases go dressed in pink and cartoon-like Hello Kitty, whose world is in pink, while children will feel more attracted to Superman or Spiderman, painted mainly in red and blue.
To see if any brave to create a princess with a blue dress and pink tights superhero. Perhaps this could be the beginning of a change.
