Pink & Blue - JeongMee Joon

South Korean artist JeongMee Joon started his Pink & Blue Project in 2005. Triggered by his daughter's preference for the color pink he started photographing boys and girls from several cultural backgrounds surrounded by their toys, clothes and other stuff. And he discovered that no matter where children live, girls prefer pink and boys prefer blue.

I myself preferred green as a child. But I never surrounded myself with only one color. And my parents never raised me or my sister feedforcing the color pink or blue on us. Still when you google baby girl or baby boy you'll discover a lot of parents do.

How the hell can parents do this to kids? I just do not understand. It's almost as bad as dressing up your dogs.
