I've noticed that it doesn't matter the culture: from a very early age (probably the age that girls can demand what they wear: say, two) little girls tend to go for head to toe pink. I'm not sure that the boys place any demands on what they wear, so the 'blue for boys' thing might be simply by default, but I've seen enough mums claim (mine own included) that children ARE, in general, drawn to the 'pink for girls' 'blue for boys' thing, to believe that there's something to it, psychologically.
That said: I do like what Susan Sarandon was quoted as saying: that in most of the best couples she's seen, the men have some feminine traits, the women some male.
