Ok so this has peeved me for the longest time, but today it has irritated me enough to cause a rant. I work at an ice cream shop, and I am so tired of parents telling their children they can’t have a certain flavor because of the color. We have a flavor called blue cotton candy (and you guessed it, it’s bright blue) and our strawberry turns out to be a light pink color when it comes out of the machine. And I can’t stand it when parents tell little girls they can’t have the blue flavor, but how about pink bubblegum or strawberry. And they tell the little boys they can’t have strawberry, but what about green cool mint or the blue. Like why are you doing this? The kids are attracted to the colors because they are bright and eye catching and they think they will like them. What are you so scared of happening? If a little boy eats pink ice cream with rainbow sprinkles he doesn’t magically turn gay. Please take your gender insecurities elsewhere, I’m tired of seeing disappointed and confused kids who just want some brightly colored ice cream.
