    Smile XTSL Flora- gender neutral?

    I really wanted to make this a poll, but I can't figure out how, so just vote by posting. I would love to find out the general board consenses, esepcially now that there are IRL pictures up.

    Option 1- Yes, it's gender neutral. The colors in it work well for girls or boys, and the pattern is not overly feminine.

    Option 2- No, it's a girl cover for sure. It's got flowers!

    Option 3- Mandatory clicky box.

    G (5 years & 40 pounds) Frontier 90 Zebra

    N (3 years & 26 pounds) RFing RXT

    I think it's very girly, BUT with that said, when/if DS needs the extra weight after his Complete Air, he will ride in DD's Flora

    Girly, but I would still use it for one of my boys (on that magical day they decide to make a 35*-30* boot)

    I think it's girly, but my ds loves that cover. It's the one he asked for! Dh said no though, so he got ventura. If he's still interested later I'll get him the cover

    I think it's gender neutral. Why can't boys like flowers too?

    I say girly, but I also say if it doesn't bother him who cares? JMO. DS is riding in a Regent with Blue Bouquet and he said it doesn't bother him because it's blue. *shrug*

    Re: XTSL Flora- gender neutral?

    I thought it was too girly, but I asked my DH because I looooooove that cover and he said, "Why can't boys have flowers?" DH's favorite color is green and he thinks the cover is gender neutral so that is probably what we will get if we ever get an XTSL.

    Re: XTSL Flora- gender neutral?

    I vote colours don't have a gender *grins* In my world we just wear/use the colours we like regardless of gender

    But then my DS1 is riding currently in a Malibu Radian XT and he'll be getting a Flora XTSL when they come out and baby brother will be moving into the Malibu.

    He picked the Malibu and loves it. Loves all things pink. Baby brother doesn't care one way or another LOL (The little one is also in a white sleeper with blue brown and pink on it... and it was bought new for him).

    Personally, I agree -- but going by the conventional lines, the Flora is definitely a "girl" pattern, IMO.

    If my DH posted here he would have said what Triscuitsmom said. He thinks the whole color = gender thing is stupid (and I agree in theory). He also would love to name a kid Linus. Must be of the same heart.

    I think it's very gender neutral. But we are a "very secure in our gender-identity" house here, and have no issues with silly societal norms anyway, so we wouldn't care if it was pink with vaginas on it.

    Nuetral. DH even thinks it looks like one of his hawaiian shirts. I would use it for a boy. Unless they did a version of malibi in blue. That would make me buy one today
