Gender, Tech, and Baby Booties

The Atlantic found a 1985 ad from IBM for gender-parity in tech, a subject that I follow closely, though it's not really my field.

As the article suggests, we're still stuck in a lot of these issues, and it's always a little depressing to think about the ways we are not making progress.

But for me, this image evokes one, important, unasked question - what if your baby boy wants pink booties?

Gabriel loves pink, it was his favorite color for a while, so he had lots of pink stuff. When he was a baby, I stuck to non-gender clothes and accoutrement if possible.
