At least that’s what this graphic floating around the internet suggests.
If I was the doctor I’d have asked why the little boy wanted a pink cast, and I wouldn’t have turned red or felt bad about asking. I’m not fully convinced this is based on a true story in the first place. But even if it were, what does it have to do with homosexuality and equality? In America pink is traditionally thought of as a ‘girl color’ and blue a ‘boy color’. There is nothing wrong with this notion. What is so offensive about this? Nothing as far as I can see, unless one is trying to blur the gender differences between male and female.
But even if it weren’t true that there were in fact boy and girl colors, why would believing there were mean you hate homosexuals?
