A friend linked me these because he thought they’d be relevant to me, he was extremely correct. If these pieces of advice aren’t relevant to you, improve yourself until they are.
A good chunk of Tumblr could benefit from this.

Yes everything here.

the pink/blue switch is true, but IDK about whether it was because of hitler?
The timing is true - the switch happened in North America around the 1940s - but not because of Hitler. (Does this mean colour coding for gender just got Godwinned?)
Manufacturers in the 1940s realized that the more you differentiated kids’ clothing, the less of it could be reused between children in the same family, and the more money they’d make.
Pink for girls was more popular in France as far back as 1880, and was still being used for boys in some circumstances in North America as late as the 1950s. Any connection made to the Holocaust is coincidental or spurious at best.
More tellingly than the dates, perhaps, is realizing that the colour gendering of clothing is much, much more prevalent in the US than in Europe (think Italian men in their pink dress shirts). You’d think, seeing as the camps were in Europe, that if there were any connection to an anti-pink reaction for males, it would originate closer to the source.
And the full book:
Arda, has anyone told you that your brain is super sexy?
I once read in a colour history book that pink was a softer red and was used for boys because red is strength, and girls wore baby blue because of the virgin’s tunic is blue….. I can’t recall what it was that the book listed as the trigger for the change, tho.

Cat-shaped treats seem like a wonderful way to celebrate how much you like your feline friends. These treats are cat-shaped nerikiri, which is “a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing shiro-an (sweetened white bean paste) with gyuhi (made of glutinous rice, similar to mochi but softer).” Caroline sculpts her nerikiri cats and kittens into various sizes and poses and then uses edible dyes to add distinguishing markings and fine details. She even makes little accessories for them, like tea sets and pillows for extra-comfy lounging.
Based on the effort that goes into making these sweets, it seems likely that Caroline’s family probably has at least one real life cat of their own and we’re guessing it leads a wonderfully spoiled life.
