Girl Boy Stereotypes

Sofia H.

Why does everyone say blue is for boys and pink is for girls? For example, if you look up backgrounds for electronics, and you type ”backgrounds for girls”, it will show pink, purple, glitter, galaxy, cute drawings, etc., but if you look up backgrounds for boys, it will show black, grey, skull drawings, blue, orange, fire, etc.

If you want to look something up like that, don’t say for girls or boys! Don’t say pink and cute stuff is for girls only. Don’t say blue, black, and skulls are for boys only. Anyone should be able to choose what he or she likes without feeling embarrassed.

You need to feel confident in yourself. You are allowed to like whatever you want. If you’re a boy who likes pink, that’s ok. If you’re a girl who likes black or blue, that is ok too!
