Good Question! honestly I think its a question of ones own sexuality. If it was a fad there would have been a time where women thought scars were cool too. Women never thought scars were cool and probably never will.thus men shouldn't find it necessary to where earrings.
Look at this way.In the past Men use to wear those white ugly wigs. now most men realize how stupid it looked. try wearing one of those to work everyday. lol
one day men will look back and remember how gay (and by gay I mean fruitfully happy) they looked.
Need another example. the 80's big poofy hair and makeup trust me those guys looked fruitfully happy too. where are they today?
I don't get it either. I can tolerate like maybe a stud earing of some sort, but diamond earings are alittle unsuitable (my personal opinion) because I think the guy looks more feminized with that sort of stuff.
I don't care if a guy wears that, but w/e. Most of the guys I've seen don't wear that.
I disagree completely with NotSoBad and anyone else who things guys with earrings are gay. Just because a guy wears earrings does not mean that he is gay or even feminine. I have my ears pierced and if someone walked up to me and told me I was gay because I have earrings I would punch him in the face. I do not wear diamond studs. I think small gauges look good on some guys. Diamonds make you look gangster and large gauges make you look like an idiot that can put their fist through their ear hole. Earrings from about 10-2 gauge can give a unique cool look. I don't care if you get your ears pierced or not but don't go bashing people who do.
I personally am going to get at least one ear gauged and maybe studs around the top of my ear.My cousin were 1 diamond earing in one of his ears. Its Basically just fashion or if you like the way it looks. I'm doing it cause I like the look (of course I'm in a punk rock band)
Well I'm a guy with his left ear pierced and I am straight, so I disagree with notsobad saying that it is a question of sexuality.
So why do I wear an earring? Because I want to. Why do girls wear earrings? It is a waste of money, but there is something that is pleasing about it. Earrings actually started out with the Aztec warriors wearing them as a mark of honor, so I'm sure that when females started wearing them they thought it was odd.
