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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Peoples general perspective from Urban Dictionary, I think it is quite accurate:
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.

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.
