Gendered greeting cards from Sociological Images
And this kick ass graffiti shared by Blue Milk via What Calico did Next
I am always amazed at the complete lack of awareness people have regarding how simply (and often) children are gendered. Why so much hyper-gendering of our babies? Because folks get freaked out when they are faced with people who transgress gender. If you can't easily tell what gender someone is it can be difficult for folks to know how to treat them and how to talk to them. Newborns, infants, and toddlers most certainly transgress gender. Take away the pink and blue and babies look like plain old human babies! In a culture so obsessed with gender binaires, it's important to know for sure if baby is a boy or girl. So cue the hyper-gendering (of everything), because without it folks are lost and don't know how to treat our little ones, and we end up with shit like this.
