BEYOND BUCKSKIN: Fest Fashion Sans Headdress: How to do Coachella/Native-Inspired Fashion Right

We are kicking off the music festival season, and I want to do all I can to ensure that we do not continue to witness the tacky headdress outbreak that we’ve experienced in the past several years (just say no to fashion mistakes like Alessandra Ambrosio, left). So, to help out, we’ve got some non-offensive, super hot, festival-chic Native American fashion options for you music fest lovers out there. These items are made by Native artists and designers, and they are meant to be appreciated by people of all backgrounds, and, the items start at only $22.

Did you know that there was a successful peaceful revolution in Iceland? It’s true. But you wouldn’t know from watching TV.

In 2008, the people of Iceland forced their prime minister and his whole government to resign. Next, they nationalized the banks & opted not to pay back the fake debt created by foreign bankers. Next, they created a public assembly to rewrite their constitution. And all of this in a peaceful way.

The people of Iceland have proven to the world that there is a way to dismantle the system while preserving peace & democracy.

"and that is why pink ribbons are for boobies." -hank green

Actually, Boys and girls both wore white dresses, and colors were introduced in the mid 19th century, 

"The march toward gender-specific clothes was neither linear nor rapid. Pink and blue arrived, along with other pastels, as colors for babies in the mid-19th century, yet the two colors were not promoted as gender signifiers until just before World War I—and even then, it took time for popular culture to sort things out." (Smithsonian magazine,  x)
 
According to wikipedia :
One reason for the increased use of pink for girls and blue for boys was “the invention of new chemical dyes, which meant that children’s clothing could be mass-produced and washed in hot water without fading. Prior to this time, most small children of both sexes wore white, which could be frequently washed.[46] Another factor was the popularity of blue and white sailor suits for young boys, a fashion that started in the late 19th century. Blue was also the usual color of school uniforms, for boys and girls. Blue was associated with seriousness and study, while pink was associated with childhood and softness.”


Also, considering I just read 15 articles on this topic from varying sources… the one common theme? all after WWII, but STARTED to become signifiers before/during WWI, 

but not ONE mention of Hitler. Only American mainstream culture.

In fact, heres an interesting section from Hue, a blog someone is maintaining about the history of colors:
"After WWI, blue was used extensively for men’s uniforms. Therefore, blue became associated as more of a masculine color. From the 1940’s onward, pink was pushed as a woman’s color. "Think Pink" was the marketing slogan to convince women to embrace their femininity. Dressing girls in pink reinforced this role by conditioning with a set of rules that started with little girls, made of "sugar and spice and everything nice."

tl;dr?

oh my god are you guys comparing the color pink with hitler without doing ANY background research

ALL SPECULATIONS ON HOW IT BECAME ASSOCIATION ARE MERELY SPECULATIONS THERE ARE NO HARD FACTS
