Reflections on a Shower

I don't want to be Mr. Down with Society or anything, but I attended my first baby showers yesterday for two of my coworkers. I was surprised by how much I was kind of creeped by a lot of the gender stuff. So much pink and blue. It seems like as a society we've kind of move beyond some of those antiquated notions and then you attend something like this, and it's all about reinforcing traditional roles and values. It's like the place where the women of two generations ago can still hold sway.Well I decided I'd write a blog piece about it so I'm doing my part.
