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.

the dresses worn by children weren’t necessarily gender neutral- while white was popular for infants, toddler boys wore dresses with darker, masculine colors and bolder decorations while girl’s dresses were lighter and frillier.

The tortoise and the hare met for coffee. They each casually mentioned their recent successes, secretly hoping to appear better than the other. As they walked their separate ways home it hit them at the same time: There never was a race. There is no destination. There is no winner.
