Wearing Pink

Fading Away From the Stereotypes
Afterschool program at PS 107

Shot, directed, scripted and edited by 3rd graders

An amazing documentary: nine-year-old kids questioning gender stereotypes!

“Are you ever called a sissy?” 
“No, I'm not called sissy but what they say is ‘you’re gay’", 
answers Merlin in a susprisingly mature way, 
"and I don’t get that. First of all, what’s wrong with being gay? And second of all, how does wearing pink make me gay?”

His answers are actually more mature and that the grownups':

"[Stereotypes] is just restricting people." 

Might the upcoming generation of New Males be pushing the envelope even further than ours?
