Dragon Egg 'Boy or Girl?' by KatherineReedKS Dragon Egg 'Boy or Girl?' by KatherineReedKS
When a child is born in America they are immediately influenced by the types of cribs they are put in, the color of their room, the kinds of toys they get to play with and many more! Usually you see little boys dressed in blue while little girls wear pink. They have absolutely no chance to get away from the gender roles placed on them and it only intensifies when boys are given truck toys and girls get play cooking sets.

I made this egg to have both the pink colors that represent girls and the blue that represents boys.

Cost: 15$ (plus shipping)

In the United States of America maybe... Not so much in Canada. You'll find a pretty even mix of tomboy girls and boys that like dolls here. People are generally allowed to express themselves however they want in Canada.
Drives me nuts when people generalize. 'America' includes more than just the USA you know. There are two whole continents that make up America, and the US is just one idiotic, self-centered, narrow-minded part of it.

I didn't know that Canada didn't have a similar thing! I swear, every time Canada is ever mentioned it never seems to have anything wrong! Perhaps the world could learn a thing or two from Canada :)

I don't know if it is the same anywhere else but I know in the U.S. if you say something happened in America then people generally think it happened in the U.S., not the continent. We are known as Americans not UnitedState'ians. If we referred to everyone from North and South Americans as Americans then I could see your point.

I will also agree with the self-centered and narrow-minded part but I (other than maybe some of our politics) don't think we are idiotic.

The gender roles are very typical, it goes the same in Europe. When I was a little girl, we went to the McDonald's. They had barbie happy meals, and hot-wheels happy meals. They immediately wanted to give me a barbie while I wanted a little car. Eventually they did put in a hot-wheel instead of the barbie, but they never stopped looking at me funny.
Besides that, I really like this egg! =D
