    Default pink color, strollers and dolls

    a friend of mine posted a photo of her toddler boy pushing a pink stroller wif his doll in a park on a facebook competition. she got a few messages from people who deleted there profile again saying he wont win coz he looks like a f@g and one message said she was a bad mum for publicly emberassing her kid like that.

    what do u think? should she remove the pic from the competition? its a stupid most likers wins comp.

    Reality is the majority of people are still closed minded about that kind of stuff. Publicly do something that is still considered taboo and you have to expect poor reactions from some people. Sad but true.

    How sad. If it was a girl playing with a tonka truck I bet no-one would have even commented I can't believe some people have such hang-ups over boys and dolls/pink etc.

    sorry cant post link. its against the rules to post a link to facebook comps on here.
    but yes its sad. she is setting up a page on facebook to see if many people are against gender stereo typing. she wants to make petition to send to toy makers.to make more toys that are unisex colored and more toys that girls and boys can play wiff and not get a stigma put on them.
