  • Funny story about that actually. In earlier times (say the middle ages) in Europe Red used to stand for royalty and pink which is kind of like a lighter red used to stand for masculinity.

    So yeah its just easier to wear whatever you want to wear. That said I am faaaar to depressing and boring to wear pink.

  • There are better colours out there for men if they wanna look more masculine but some do pull it off. Its just that nowadays pink is considered girly, so feminine is what tends to come to mind, even though the colour used to be considered masculine.

  • No, it's just a random color. Fun fact: back in the victorian age, blue was considered a typical girl color and pink was considered a typical guy color. The association pink = feminine is still very young (and very arbitrary).

      Wow I didn't know that, that's cool

      Pink was considered manly because it's a version of red, thus reminding you of blood and war and these kind of things. There's even a chapter in "The Great Gatsby" where a gentleman shows up to a nice dinner in a pink suit ;-).

  • Pink used to be a masculine color for boys a long time ago. Like a watered down red.

    But then girls stole it. Sooner later they'll steal blue as well and men will just have to move on to fucking green.

    And then that will be stolen too.

      We didn't steal it. Adolf Hitler used pink for gay people and suddenly, the world thought pink equals girly because that's what was thought about homosexuals

  • i've seen so many questions about guys wearing pink and everyone says that it's perfectly fine and that there's nothing feminine about it
    But then when I post a question about pink shoes everyone calls me gay and says they are girl shoes.
    Then I post a picture of a cosplay I want to do last night, and again people say it's too feminine because there's pink in the guys hair.
    Like which fucking one is it? Can I wear pink without you people telling me that I look like a faggot or not? I hate this website

      Aw I'm sorry. You shouldn't care what people think. If you want to wear pink, wear it.

  • No. In fact, I plan on writing a myTake sooner or later about pink stuff men can wear that looks really good.

  • No. Pink is just a color. And waaay back in history, pink was a color for men to wear, and not for women.
