Who says blue is a boy color??
Did you know that the gender specific color assignments of blue for boys and pink for girls didn’t actually become a “thing” until World War II? It’s true.
A June 1918 article from the trade publication Earnshaw’s Infants’ Department said, “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.”
We already have a blue band – and pink is in the works. So ladies, what do you say? Shouldn’t we take blue back? I think we should. It was ours to begin with!!
Have a great week, ARMABandits!
