This is a photo of 2 1/2 year old Franklin D. Roosevelt. At the time of this photograph, 1884, it was the social norm to dress children in gender neutral clothing, white dresses, until about 6 or 7.
When Did Girls Start Wearing Pink?
From the Ladies Home Journal in 1918:


The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls. The reason is that pink, being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.



I think it’s fascinating these so-called traditions of pink being for girls and gender being defined in a specific way are actually rather recent and quite malleable. People need to learn some history and get ready for change.

I’ve definitely reblogged this article before, but it’s always worth another.
