Is it acceptable to use feminine adjectives, like ‘gorgeous’ or ‘beautiful’, to compliment a man?

Me and some friends were trying on clothes, and one of my male friends showed off an outfit he liked. I thought it looked nice and I wanted to compliment him... ‘gorgeous’ happened to be the first word that popped into my head. A few of my other friends agreed, but he told us that he felt emasculated and upset, like we were mocking him. I was just wondering if others would feel this way as well.
