Campaign launched to teach boys that it’s okay to wear pink

August 8, 2014

In 2012 a five-year-old wearing pink shoes and his mom, who allowed him to wear pink shoes, caused an internet stir, with many accusing her of setting her son up for ridicule, with others labelling his shoes “wrong” for his gender.


I’m not sure how you feel on the pink topic, but one woman is on a drive to show support for children – regardless of their gender – to wear pink. Martine Zoer started Quirkie Kids  aKickstarter-funded line of pink tees for both boys and girls, and is trying to promote online the acceptance of individual choice and expression.

 TheQuirkie Kids Facebook page states, “Some boys like pink and why not? Pink is just a color and so is green, and blue, and yellow.”

To support the movement, all you have to do is repost this image of a boy wearing a pink shirt or post a picture of your own child “expressing themselves through their clothing,” along with the hashtag #freetowearpink, on your social media.

    Love it! I have two little boys – one has been asking for a toy castle and well the only ones we have found are pink…..I will buy it for him.

    I know of a mom who has twins – one is very boy boy boy but the other likes more domestic play pretend play and dolls – I told the mom that its not a sign he will be gay but a great sign that she is a good mom and that he is nurturing – its signs he will prob be a good dad.

    I hear it from the kids at nursery school – “why you wearing blue thats a boys colour not a girls colour?” “Why do your socks have pink thats for girls?”
