PC stuff what it is these days.
Anyway, don't overthink this, they are just scrubs. It not like they want all white or all pink or something ridiculous. You are the only one to see it this way. I wear blue with white top by choice, just not a big deal. Like what what was mentioned earlier, there are those really loving the old caps. I would have to draw the line there for sure.
BTW, never been a fan of the Navy whites. Gotta respect the MOH though!
white scrub tops and navy bottoms sounds fair enough , i'm sat here at work on a bit of down time during a night shift wearing my work uniform of hospital blue round neck tunic, navy trousers and black (training)shoes , as is my (male) colleague at the other end of the unit - our female RN colleague is wearing a simialr uniform - just with the female top and our feale HCA is wearing the same but with a light blue top (as that's the colour for HCAs in the dress code)
