I know I’ve been dragging on these posts, guys, and it’s killing me more than it’s killing you! Today I wrote my before-last essay and now I have one more to go before I’m freeeeee (for, like, three weeks and then I start a summer intensive). But a summer intensive is better than a full courseload any day so… I’ll still celebrate!
So for the record, today’s post is both late and a bit lacking in content, but it is here and I hope you’ll still give me props? I was thinking about Article #2 of the Human Rights document, Don’t Discriminate. My brain kind of jumped to “blue for boys, pink for girls” concept. I’ve always found it such a ridiculous notion that concepts and colours have to be divided between the genders. That inspired me to create a look but … I’m not sure it’s this one? I wanted a dividing line and I wanted pink and I wanted blue but I don’t know if I wanted what turned out.
Still, I do like what I did. I think it says something. Maybe one day I’ll recreate it and it’ll say even more?
Anyway. Boys and girls are just … boys and girls. A label. That doesn’t determine what a person will like or who they will be. But if, from the moment a child is born, you say “pink” and “princesses” and “makeup” and “no sports,” then you’re playing a huge role in determining who they will be.
I could say more and I could be ALOT clearer but my brain is still pretty scrambled. Thanks for tuning in this Friday and I hope school isn’t reducing you to this much mush too!
