A girl gets married. A girl has a baby. A girl moves to suburbia. These things must be made fun of.

After 30 minutes of searching on the internet for clothes for my child I have determined, that makers of baby clothes and moms around the nation, need to come together and come up with some kind of compromise. I get it, for generations of time we have all believed that girls must be dressed in pink and boys be dressed in blue, but who then decided that girl outfits must also include ridiculous amounts of ruffles, lace, embroidered hearts and any other kind of bedazzling that screams, "No, seriously, my bald child is a girl. A girl, I say!" Why can't girl clothes come in blue? Would this cause a great darkness to come over Asia and parts of Australia? What if a girl's outfit had a car on it? Would that mean sudden deaths would occur to people in Rhode Island, while they drive to work? Honestly. What is the big deal? Do people really think babies look down at their outfits to determine their gender identity? If so, the Dallas Cowboy football jersey, cut off jeans and Converse shoes I wore every single day, really should have caused me massive confusion, but it didn't. And sure, there was a time when a sales clerk told my older brother he had a really cute younger brother, and I had to inform the dumb lady that I was a girl, but hey, it all got straightened out...oh wait...
Alright, alright, let's just lay off the pink. I swear my girl will wear dresses occasionally, choose the correct bathroom at school and marry a man - can I now buy some blue clothes?
