Pink vs Blue: Why does it matter?

Everything in this world seems to be geared towards whether you're a boy or a girl...man or women. Everything from jobs to the toys children play with. Toys? Yes toys dictate whether it's for a boy or a girl. Pink-girl, blue-boy. Action figures vs baby dolls, kitchen sets vs tool sets. Who says all girls like pink and want to pretend to cook and clean or that all boys want to build and wrestle? Maybe, just maybe a girl loves blue and likes superheros or a boy likes to cook and likes dolls. Would this be so bad? What could be possibly wrong with this scenario? So why do toy company's keep putting out gendered specific toys? Toys are suppose to help children learn, grow and become creative and not dictate which toys they should be playing with. Even in stores such as Walmart or Target they have their aisles designated for either boys or girls. How does this help our children express themselves and learn about the kind of person they want to be? I say put aside the stereotypes for boys and girls; let kids be kids and just play with endless possibilities.
