No color is meant for a certain gender. It's true that colors like pink, purple are more popular with girls, but its not wrong if a boy wears it.

I wore pink in high-school. I was on the tennis team, and wore pink tennis-shoes. What of it?

Nothing... We won't judge.

The color pink was actually considered a "masculine color" prior to the 1950's and blue was mainly associated with femininity. Why do you think Cinderella's dress was blue?

Pink is for metro and homosexual men

Duh I know that. I am just pointing out a simple fact, colors associated with gender are merely a product of social behaviors and traditions. If society sees pink as "feminine" then it's no wonder some boys are so reluctant to wear it.

"Pink is for metro and homosexual men" - And all homosexual men are feminine? Thanks for proving my point.
Kreakin says2015-06-07T14:23:58.2875106-05:00
Pink is now thought of as a feminine colour, Masculine men gay or straight don't often wear it.
briantheliberal says2015-06-07T14:27:26.3395013-05:00
Not true. Because I see men, both gay and straight, who are pretty "masculine" and wear pink often, more so than most women. Yet, many of my male friends who are considerably feminine dislike the color, and rarely, if ever, wear it. It's about personal taste, not how masculine or feminine someone is.
TBR says2015-06-07T14:33:44.5467846-05:00
I have no reason to limit my choices based on what others perceive as masculine. I had no issues finding girls that had no problem with me wearing pink, and none of my male friends did either. How boring.
briantheliberal says2015-06-07T14:38:56.8198106-05:00
TBR, exactly, but he seems to think no masculine or straight male would ever wear the color. Only men who are insecure in their sexuality or masculinity would completely avoid the color pink for fear of being perceived as gay or "feminine". That's just childish and asinine.
Kreakin says2015-06-07T14:43:28.1065685-05:00
I wore a pink shirt to work once. Once, it will not help the way people see you at all.
TBR says2015-06-07T14:47:18.6640404-05:00
Who are these people you are concerned about? I wear a suit or sport-coat almost every day. When I don't have meetings, or anything too "professional" to go to, I wear things people have described as "Dr. Who like". In summer I wear a blazer, khakis and plaid tennis shoes. Everyone I run into love it.
Kreakin says2015-06-07T14:56:00.2764704-05:00
Peoples general perspective from Urban Dictionary, I think it is quite accurate: Pink Shirt adj. A male who overcompensates in an attempt to be cool. Most likely a frat-boy or douche-bag who has their collar popped. So named for their affinity to wear pink shirts out to social events. That bar was whack, full of pink shirts spending dad's money. 2Words related to pink shirt pink shirts douche douchebag gay guido homo hollister bloods douchebagdom goths gotti half-a-fag joke pink pink shirt guy pink sock popped-collar preppy rad

Urban Dictionary... Seriously?

Kreakin - So, macho manly men who would never wear such a faggie color, they are GREAT right?
briantheliberal says2015-06-07T15:14:10.2062310-05:00
Kreakin, have you ever thought, maybe, just maybe, some men wear the color pink because they.. I don't know.. Actually like the color pink? So they wear it without needing to make a statement?
Kreakin says2015-06-07T15:20:20.9005596-05:00
Why not shave your legs too?
Kreakin says2015-06-07T15:27:13.3931181-05:00
The truth is I think pink looks pretty bad on men and women. Pastels also.
briantheliberal says2015-06-07T15:47:45.3715157-05:00
"Why not shave your legs too?" - Why not? Many men shave their legs, especially if they are swimmers.
Kreakin says2015-06-07T15:54:37.9093167-05:00
Do you wax or shave?
briantheliberal says2015-06-07T16:01:07.6360113-05:00
I do neither, every once in a white I'll trim my leg hair out of boredom but that's about it.

Ah, let's just make everyone gay what do you say Kreakin?
Stefy says2015-06-09T07:32:10.0331321-05:00
Kreakin: I know a lot of guys secure ebough in their masculinity that they dont need to go around proving it to everyone and they dont feel like less of a man because they put on a pink shirt. If someones feeling secure in their masculinity depends on something so superficial then its probably not so secure. The pressure on guys to be "masculine" is stupid anyway. People, men and women, should act however they are comfortable acting as individuals. You dont have to be defined by your sex and you shouldnt be. There should be more to your identity as a person than your sex or gender.
Stefy says2015-06-09T07:34:28.5791500-05:00
Briantheliberal: So true. That swimmer life. (im on swim team)
