Blue is for Boys and Pink is for Girls

There’s a problem.
The problem is with the discouragement put on children who don’t follow the gender conformity. We’ve all heard the saying pink is for girls and blue is for boy right? Well the reason behind it is ridiculous. I’ve always wondered why most parents discourage their children from using opposite sex toys and wondered why it matters so much since its just children playing around. According to this website called time.com, most parents worry because they’re afraid their children will become gay or transgender. Which this site has proven that gender non-conformity does not cause children to become homosexual in fact, the website stated that “85% of gender non-conformity children in the study were heterosexual in adulthood” which proves in fact does not cause children to be homosexual. I, myself have experienced this when I had asked my mother if she could buy me pro-wrestler action figures instead of a Barbie dolls and she turned, looked at me and said “really, is that really what you want?” and when I told her yes, she raised her eyebrow and said okay. She bought me the action figure but the point is, she had to think about it, she probably thought why would she want a boy’s toy? The conclusion is that boys shouldn’t need to play with truck or cars, if they want to play with dolls or a cooking set, then let them and if a girl wants to play with swords and make trucks smash into each other, then they should be able to as well without a problem from parents or even people around them.
Boys can wear pink and girls can wear blue.
