Does it come in hot-pink? No, well I don’t want it.
Korean Photographer JeongMee Yoon has been taking beautifully arranged pictures of girls and their belongings and boys and their belongings as part of the Pink & Blue Project. So many pictures, and wow! So many belongings.

Crazy eh? You can barely see the child for their toys. The pink/blue split is also kind of remarkable.
I remember lining up all my teddy bears for a group shot when I was about 9 and I don’t think they were so uniformly pink. Then again, I was a tomboy and I think I hated the color because I thought it was sissy. At the time I wanted rainbows painted on everything, in hindsight that was a clue to so many things, from queerness to my inability to choose just one thing and stick with it (as my grandmother says). Okay I also gave all my dolls boys’ names, so forget me, I am not a good sample. What about you? Was pink the big colour for you growing up?
