Little Boy Shuts Down Haters Who Claim It’s Wrong He Likes Things That Are Pink

He's my new hero.

For so long, the gender stereotype that pink is for girls and blue is for boys has reigned supreme, but it's about time we let that outdated idea go. All colors are for all people, and it seems that's even more true when it comes to kids who are exploring and experimenting with the things they like and who they want to be.

And while some may still think that young kids aren't old enough to decide what they love, in this case, a little boy who adores pink is ready to prove them all wrong. From this TikTok video shared by his mom, it's clear that he's wise beyond his years.


In the beginning of the video, we hear Mom offscreen saying that some people don't think he's old enough to know what he wants and likes. But her son had the perfect response ready for those people.

"I know what I want in life," he said assuredly while tying his shoes. "Pizza, macaroni, cake, pink, dresses." 

Well said, little one — because when it comes right down to it, it really is that simple. Adults are the ones who make things complicated!

Agreeing with this kiddo and his mom's approach, one person wrote, "Allowing children to make decisions makes well rounded adults who are capable of standing up for themselves and what they want when they're older." 

The consensus in the rest of the comments was pretty much the same: Mom's doing a great job.

This is one happy kid who knows what he wants. What more could a parent ask for?
