This photo shows that Pink DGAF about gender stereotypes while dressing her kids

Who's got time for gender stereotypes? Not our mom crush Pink. We swooned when the singer, her husband Carey Hart and their daughter, Willow Sage, all rocked sharp matching black suits at the VMAs in late August.

Yeah, we know what you're wondering. Did the mommy-shamers come out to play? Surprisingly — in a good way — commenters seemed to love Pink's pink pic. Well, except for one jokester:

"Terrible product placement, everything is pink. Poor boy :D"

"Love the P!nk, also how the Willow tree is in the background!"

"It's the handsome lil meatball!!! He doesn't have to worry about the pink hat, sister wouldn't let anyone pick on him!"

"Real men wear what ever they want."

Have you seen those biceps... or that documentary? Long live Queen Pink and her laid-back approach to dressing her kids — and herself.
