Or it means they haven't experienced how mean kids can be for those that weren't raised with the "this is for boys, this is for girls" teaching. My now 6 year old loved pink because I made damn sure he wasn't raised with that bias. As soon as he was around other kids in this small town.. "Pink is for girls". >

I agree! I feel like that part of the FML is unnecessary to include. Good for them for liking what they like and I hope nobody tries to discourage them because they think content can be specific to a gender. That's so silly. Hope your kids can stop the fighting though, OP! I have 5 younger siblings and I can totally see any of them getting into this same sort of argument. Kids can be petty as hell.

My cousin used to love bananas until the boys in his class said bananas are a girls' fruit. Don't really understand their logic since a banana is pretty much as phallic as you can get, but hey. He's 25 now and still won't eat bananas. Hm. I wonder how he feels about very small plantains.

Anyone can like it... It is stereotypical that girls like it but what's to stop boys liking it? I believe you can do and believe what you want as long as it doesn't impact badly on people

#43, Barbie may be designed for and marketed to little girls but it is in no way 'meant' for little girls. That implies that only little girls are allowed to purchase and enjoy, which is false. Anyone can enjoy a Barbie. My 7 year old daughter bought yellow Minion pajamas earlier in the boys section. Just because they were designed for boys doesn't mean she didn't like them better than the pink monstrosity in the girls section. We had the same issue with super hero underwear, so she wore (and still wears) boy's briefs. It's what she likes so who cares? It doesn't affect anyone but her so why not?

Doesn't actually show they have been exposed to the stereotype and are having a conformity problem? They want to watch but won't choose so the other one is responsible for picking the show they don't think they should want to watch. I agree they shouldn't be concerned with the girls vs boys shows or things in general but I think they are in this case. To all the "pink is for boys too" type comments; pink was a masculine color and blue was feminine until around WWI. There's a long reason why the perception changed but historically pink was a male color and light blue was female. So it's all just current social views that make it out that way.

I do that. Can't decide on a show to watch without arguing? Good, we're watching this PBS documentary I missed last week when you were watching some Disney Channel BS.

What do you mean? As a little kid I wanted to go to baseball games and watch WWF (now WWE), and I had plenty of time with both parents. They're kids, they like what they like. Good for them.

but if the kids here girls and were into sports and other "boyish" things they'd be labeled as Tom boys and no one would say that they need a mom in their life.
