In other news, Taiwanese male officials donned pink masks during a press conference to make a statement surrounding gender norms. It comes after concerns arose that boys would refuse to wear pink masks out of a fear they would be bullied. The officials hope it will show children that there are no gender-specific colours.
That’s all for today.
