Be brave!

Are there boys’ colors and girls’ colors? NO! Nobody can say, “Oh, you have to like this color pink because you are a girl.” It’s not just someone’s color. You can’t force someone to like a color. Nobody owns a color. People have to understand that it’s not just a color that someone has to like. You can’t force it. I don’t like people who force it.

If your parents tell you, “You have to like pink, and boys get all the other colors. You get pink and purple. That’s it,”  No! Just don’t listen to them. Tell them the color you like. Don’t hide it. It’s ok to tell them that you like black when you’re a girl. Just don’t hide it from other people. Be brave.
