    Donni Millsap what a smart little lady.

    Christie Lurie McPhail Amen, sista! This drives me nuts as the mother of a 9-year old girl. I recently had to go to 4 stores to find her some snowboots that weren't pink, and looked at about 20 bike helmets before I found a "girl" helmet that didn't have pink, hearts, or flowers on it. Why are we still doing this to our children?

    Vicki Newman She makes my feminist heart sing. Atta girl!

    Elizabeth G Gisler i love to buy my son purple and pink things here and there.. to even it out and show him that it's fucking okay.

    Michelle Anne Wood I always thought that there must be an EEC pink dye mountain that is taking years to get rid of….horrible. I worked in a zoo education dept once and looking at all the children in the zoo made me angry….the boys were dressed for running about and the girls all looked like horrible explosions of pink christmas cake….they couldn't move for all the frills and bows……I would incarcerate anyone who dressed a girl so..

    Lori Ventura boy clothes are horrible too… my son resorts to tie dye to have color in his wardrobe… the marketers and designers are to blame.
