That's an awesome color. It's also one of my fav colors, and mah husband looks absolutely dashing in it. Srsly, the boy just slays. Just be careful with it -- that's one of those colors that will wear YOU, if you don't know exactly how to wear IT. lol
But, yeah. As for the people saying it's "gay"? Haha... as if. Some insecurities coming out, there.
Hey, kids, history lesson: Magenta/hot pink wasn't even considered "for girls" until about 70 years ago. That whole "blue for boys, pink for girls" thing was conceived around the 1940's by American marketing companies, in order to increase sales. Guess they did a good job, huh, suckers?
