"Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”
Bundy ranch militia (2014)

"and that is why pink ribbons are for boobies." -hank green
Actually, Boys and girls both wore white dresses, and colors were introduced in the mid 19th century,
"The march toward gender-specific clothes was neither linear nor rapid. Pink and blue arrived, along with other pastels, as colors for babies in the mid-19th century, yet the two colors were not promoted as gender signifiers until just before World War I—and even then, it took time for popular culture to sort things out." (Smithsonian magazine, x)
According to wikipedia :
One reason for the increased use of pink for girls and blue for boys was “the invention of new chemical dyes, which meant that children’s clothing could be mass-produced and washed in hot water without fading. Prior to this time, most small children of both sexes wore white, which could be frequently washed. Another factor was the popularity of blue and white sailor suits for young boys, a fashion that started in the late 19th century. Blue was also the usual color of school uniforms, for boys and girls. Blue was associated with seriousness and study, while pink was associated with childhood and softness.”
Also, considering I just read 15 articles on this topic from varying sources… the one common theme? all after WWII, but STARTED to become signifiers before/during WWI,
but not ONE mention of Hitler. Only American mainstream culture.
In fact, heres an interesting section from Hue, a blog someone is maintaining about the history of colors:
"After WWI, blue was used extensively for men’s uniforms. Therefore, blue became associated as more of a masculine color. From the 1940’s onward, pink was pushed as a woman’s color. "Think Pink" was the marketing slogan to convince women to embrace their femininity. Dressing girls in pink reinforced this role by conditioning with a set of rules that started with little girls, made of "sugar and spice and everything nice."
