The pink and blue color coding has been enforced on us since our birth. Think about the babies just born in hospitals. Who wears the pink, who wears the blue?
This is true for the styles we wear, and even for how we act. Think how women are generalized as more emotional than men. Is that biological? NO! Men are raised to believe that they are not allowed to show emotion.
This happens in all sorts of aspects in our lives, and in all sorts of societies across the globe.
It is a very insightful subject, and there are some people that have college degrees that don't understand this subject. I am glad that you are raising this issue and that people are very aware of the idea of socialization!
Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught. Oscar Wilde
