I’ve never been a big fan of pink… I’ve always liked blue more. Blue reminds me of the water, of the sea. My happy place.
As humanity progresses, labeling people is becoming less and less acceptable, and gender is no longer strictly black and white. More labels, such as Zara, are releasing unisex or genderless collections. Pink is no longer a girls’ color and blue isn’t the boys’ shade of choice. Sex is no longer defined, in fashion at least, by a certain shape or specific color.
I remember vividly being around 4 or 5 years old and crying my eyes out on Christmas when my brother’s present and mine got mixed up. See, I didn’t want a Barbie doll. I wanted my brother’s sherif’s set, but of course my brother didn’t want the doll either. For a long time, we were told to conform to a certain gender stereotype… But not anymore!
It’s our responsibility to teach the new generation gender equality, so hopefully equal pay and other sexist problems will be history. One of my favorite true feminists is Emma Watson. Not only she’s a a great actress, she’s also a brilliant young lady, working hard for gender equality. One of my favorites quotes for her is “Gender equality not only liberates women but also men from prescribed gender stereotypes #heforshe“. No gender or specific group of people will ever gain from any type of discrimination. To reach our full potential as individuals and entity, we should look at each other as unique people and not as just this or that.
Let’s drop all the labels, and be kind to one another. Treat everyone with the respect they deserve!
