Pink Was For Boys, Blue For Girls
Just shows it's all in how you see things...
“There has been a great diversity of opinion on the subject, but the
generally accepted rule is pink for the boy and blue for the girl. 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.”
