Knowing what you know about junior high kids....would you think the coral would be an issue for a boy? For the record, I am all for my kids loving whatever color they like and my boys had dolls when they were kids and kitchen toys to play with etc. I just hate to make a choice where my kid gets made fun of for his phone. He likes the color and I do too. Share with me if you are a guy and have coral. He has had a pink 6s in the past.
