Children raised in houses that speak language switch almost immediately to the language spoken by their peers (I'll google up the study if I must) so why wouldn't kids raised by feminists (and can I get a new term? equalist?) end up mimicking what they see on TV and in their neighborhoods?

"Pink was once a color associated with masculinity, considered to be a watered down red and held the power associated with that color.
