  1. In some ways, the masculine expectations of boys are equally troublesome – the gender divide seems to be growing wider against expectations.
    I remember hearing stories from my mother about trying to avoid all pink or all blue for my brother and I, and trying to dress us more gender neutral without obscuring our gender. I grew up thinking that that would become more normal as I aged, and I see children’s clothes and toys becoming more segregated.
