Pink Stinks

Reader Nic sent us a link to www.pinkstinks.co.uk.

PinkStinks is a campaign and social enterprise that challenges the culture of pink which invades every aspect of girls’ lives.

This site is for parents and non parents alike, and aims to gather support, promote discussion and ultimately to mobilize that support to influence marketeers and the media about the importance of promoting positive gender roles to girls.

I haven’t had a chance to give it a good look, but I like what I see so far! I especially *love* the “I’m no princess” tees in their online shop! Have a look and let us know what you think. Thanks, Nic!

One thought on “Pink Stinks

  1. I totally agree with The Pink Stinks on some aspects, you see I myself am I thirteen year old girl. So you can imagine that if anyone knows about pink clothes stereotyped for girls, it would be me. I personally myself hate the colour pink. Yet everywhere I turn theres pink, fluffly stuff for girls.
    When will people ever learn that little girls cannot live in a fantasy world, full of fairies and princesses? I don’t want to be a princess, I want to be able to learn discipline and about the real world. While the media, muffs what the real world is like. I know little kids don’t want to know about death. But even people my own age can’t just live in a fantasy world. They need something which they can relate to. It’s all a joke.
    Girls are told so many times that they are not stronger or smarter than boys and that they can’t play football, that thy start to believe it. I just don’t understand why girls have to like pink and boys have to like blue. You like what you like and that is it.
