in the pink?

According to this, the baby will be a girl. Hmm. Don't Get Me Started on gender politics this morning. It's a minefield. I mean, one of the contributors on Newsnight Review the other night was a T.V. in a very Polly Anna frock, and the remarkable thing was that it wasn't remarkable. But we wouldn't put our baby boy (assuming that Chinese chart is wrong) in pink. Not round our way. You could put a little girl in dungarees, say, but not a boy in anything frilly. And I'm sure that applies in Islington as much as it does in Jarrow.
