bluring the gender lines

We bought long sleeve sets a little while ago at Old Navy - a red set and a teal set - hey why not? They were 40% off. Turns out that sale was only on "girls" clothing. What makes a threesome of onesies "boys" or "girls"? Boys don't wear red or stripes? Girls don't like teal or dinosaurs?

I don't even know where to start the rant, so I'll just say I truly hope we are raising a generation of kids who will blur the ridiculous gender lines, boys marching proud in their polka dots and girls in their camo.
nb: funny what happens when you strike up a conversation about this with someone else in the kid's section and it turns out to be a manager. We got the dinosaurs at sale price ;)
