I love Pink, the singer, badass, and great mom. Pink likes pink, and she doesn’t like prescribed gender norms or wasting money, and that’s why she posted this adorable photo of her baby wearing his sister’s hand-me-down pink hat on Instagram. #realmenwearpink.
Pink’s son is adorable in this pink hat.
“Baby’s first picnic,” she wrote alongside the photo of her super cute 10-month-old son, Jameson. “#realmenweartheirbigsistershat.”
If you’re taking a baby out in the sun and you have a perfectly good hat left over from your last baby, you’re going to put that hat on the baby’s head. Having a boy in a pink hat is good. Having a boy with a sunburned head is bad.
The idea that pink is for girls and blue is for boys is relatively recent, and its main effect is to get people to spend tons of money on new baby stuff. “Hooray! A second baby! Oh no, this one’s genitals are different, so I have to buy all new stuff. So long, car seat, crib, bassinet, a thousand only slightly stained onesies, etc.”
Not using perfectly good clothes just because someone decided people with penises can’t wear light shades of red is the height of financial irresponsibility.
Somehow, everyone was cool with Pink’s son’s pink hat.
Pink is no stranger to mom-shaming. She’s been “called out” by Internet randos for drinking coffee, saying newborns are jerks, letting her kids ride their bikes in the house, and wearing a baby while cooking. This time, however, everybody seems to be Team Pink, and specifically Team Pink Hat. Most of the moms in the comments said, “Yep. My boy wore tons of pink.”
Honestly, I was a little surprised. I was 100-percent sure there would be people in the comments ranting that putting a pink hat on a boy will turn him gay or something. We’ve all seen dumber arguments. (Megan Fox let her son wear an Elsa costume, and the Internet never forgave her.)
All colors are for everybody. Pink’s son looks adorable.
What do you think of boys in pink? Let us know in the comments.
