Lmao so while I was working the other day I was walking back towards a section of the store called Chem Corner (which is where all the chemicals save for laundry detergent are) and on the way there is an aisle that has the remainder of our summer items, including a series of adorable cups in a variety of colors.
Well as I was walking back to the area, I passed by a woman and her kids (there was like two sons and a daughter?) and the older son had grabbed one of the cups. Now the cups (which are decorated with foxes and little woodland creatures) come in like 3 different colors, with each color having a different woodland design. I happen to have the blue one. But the oldest boy had grabbed a pink one, as opposed to the blue or the green.
And his mother steps and is like “Are you sure you want that one? It’s pink. Don’t you want the blue one”? and I swear I lost all patience with everything. Like, seriously, it’s just a fucking color, it has no gender or gender identity please stop inconspicuously teaching your kids that gendered colors are a thing.
