Thread: Gender Stereotyping
March 3rd, 2013 10:03 PM #6
I mostly agree with kala_way. Although I would add that gender and sex roles are more than sociocultural; they are a part of our nature. They're not incidental.
I used to would have been right around where augusta_lee is on this issue but my thinking has, um, I'll say evolved. I have lived in San Francisco; I would no longer be very welcome there. I was rather radical Left as a youngster. I am now a conservative libertarian-ish Catholic.
So come to think of it, rather than stir up a hornet's nest I think I'm gonna go find a different thread. :-)Mrs. H.

Also, I know the reason a lot of people use the "expected" colors is so that they don't have to correct people all the time. It irritated my sister to no end when people would walk up and say, "Aww, your boy is so handsome!" Just because my niece was wearing jeans and a purple shirt. Apparently, if it's not in pink it's a boy, lol.
I do agree with your point that forcing children away from certain color choices in toys is crazy.
We were at a baseball game the other week and a father in front of us wouldn't by a cotton candy for his son because all the seller had left was pink! Seriously! It's candy, all strawberry/cherry/watermelon/raspberry/etc flavored candy is pink! Maybe he discourages the use of Pepto Bismol as well.Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve

DO you think it will affect their child's future?
