Does any colour define the gender? If yes, which colour defines you? Which colour do you prefer? If you have any preference, lower it down. Because the world is moving towards equality.
Don’t you think since the day of birth of a kid, knowingly or unknowingly, we start creating small distinctions. If it’s a baby boy, all the gifts will be wrapped in blue. If it’s a baby girl, the entire room is decorated with pink. If it’s a boy, he will be full of cars. If it’s a girl, she would be surrounded with dolls. Boys would play with bat and ball. Girls would be busy with their kitchen sets. These are the small differences, but yet have a great impact on their delicate minds.
Have you ever observed this in your neighbourhood?
Have you ever done this to your kid?
Have you ever inculcated this bias in their sensitive, immature brains?
Stop it right there. Stop the distinction. Look at yourself what are you trying to do?
You are not doing harm only to your kid but to the entire upcoming generations.
Kids try to reciprocate us. Reiterate our behaviour. Follow our actions. They make up their minds as they observe us performing our so called duties. They start photocopying from a very tender age.
So, knowingly or unknowingly, we are responsible for this gender bias. We need to take action right now. Bring the change within you, so that you can reproduce the better version of you. Let’s play them together as kids, not as boys and girls. Let them share the household chores as siblings, not as boys and girls. Let them grow together. Because it’s high time to change the notion!
