    Now you probably be thinking..ooh they must be high school students or be at least immature civilians but they are not! They are 20-40 years older than me (around 40-60 years old) and every time they see clothes in the Men's Department and it's PINK! They are shocked that MEN wear pink shirts. Than one co-workers LITERALLY thinks it's for the gay people. I am just dumbfounded how dumb they are or very immature they can be especially their age.

    I just want to come into work with a pink shirt and just "act" gay (base on what they believe how gay people act) than the next day wear a red shirt and act straight..Than say "oh, it was easy to turn straight and gay overnight and now I have to go tell the gay community how found their solution to their problems."

    First, I"m gay and do love pink... maybe they saw me walking on the beach wearing a pink bikini!!! But correct me if I'm wrong, about two years ago, pink was the "in" color. Pink shirts were being worn by everyone... gays and straight.... I loved the style.

    That doesn't surprise me at all.

    There are many gay men that I doubt would wear pink either, considering the thread about v-necks being emasculating.icon_neutral.gif

    Not that many years ago, probably no more than five, I interviewed for a job in Casper, Wyoming. I wasn't crazy about the place or the job, but I went because I was unemployed at the time and needed a job.

    The man who would be my boss took me to lunch at what passes as a high-end restaurant in Casper, but was really more like the local version of an Applebee's. He was wearing cowboy boots (natch) and a yellow dress shirt. I was wearing a pink one, and a jacket and tie.

    The waitress walks up and, before even saying hello, says, "Wow, pastels. I don't see much of that around here." Wow, I thought, I've time-warped to the 1960's.

    I'm not a huge fan of shocking fluorescent pink for clothes, but I love blushed pink shirts or sport coats.

    Donald Trump frequently wears pink ties...


    ...although that's enough reason to never wear the colour again.

    You know a guy is gay when he cares what color another guy is wearing.

    Now what were they saying about men in pink?

    A few years ago, a ninth grade student went to school in a pink shirt and was teased by some twelfth graders. Two boys who were in that grade didn't agree with these bullies and went out after school, bought a bunch of pink tshrts at the local second hand stores and handed them out to as many people as they could. See news article below>

    We now have a pink shirt day in Canada because of this. It's an anti bullying day.

    Bullied student tickled pink by schoolmates' T-shirt campaign

    CBC News
    Two Nova Scotia students are being praised across North America for the way they turned the tide against the bullies who picked on a fellow student for wearing pink.

    The victim — a Grade 9 boy at Central Kings Rural High School in the small community of Cambridge — wore a pink polo shirt on his first day of school.

    David Shepherd, left, and Travis Price decided to spread word of their 'sea of pink' campaign on the internet.
    (CBC)
    Bullies harassed the boy, called him a homosexual for wearing pink and threatened to beat him up, students said.

    Two Grade 12 students — David Shepherd and Travis Price — heard the news and decided to take action.

    "I just figured enough was enough," said Shepherd.

    They went to a nearby discount store and bought 50 pink shirts, including tank tops, to wear to school the next day.

    'Sea of pink' support

    Then the two went online to e-mail classmates to get them on board with their anti-bullying cause that they dubbed a "sea of pink."

    But a tsunami of support poured in the next day.

    Not only were dozens of students outfitted with the discount tees, but hundreds of students showed up wearing their own pink clothes, some head-to-toe.

    The two Grade 12 students show off the pink shirts they wore to school.
    (CBC)
    When the bullied student, who has never been identified, walked into school to see his fellow students decked out in pink, some of his classmates said it was a powerful moment. He may have even blushed a little.

    "Definitely it looked like there was a big weight lifted off his shoulders. He went from looking right depressed to being as happy as can be," said Shepherd.

    And there's been nary a peep from the bullies since, which Shepherd says just goes to show what a little activism will do.

    "If you can get more people against them … to show that we're not going to put up with it and support each other, then they're not as big as a group as they think are," he says.

    The students' "sea of pink" campaign did not go unnoticed outside the province. U.S. talk show host Ellen DeGeneres expressed interest in their story, and other schools are talking about holding their own "pink day."

    "It's been totally overwhelming for us. I mean we're just two local boys and I mean we're getting calls from like Alaska and e-mails. It's just phenomenal the support that we've gotten from across the globe," said Price.

    The school principal, understandably, was flush with pride.

    "You're always hearing about the youth of the world and how bad things are. Well, they're not that bad," said Stephen Pearl.

    Thank god I do part of the hiring at my job.
    If I had coworkers who seriously thought that shit, I'd give them a HUGE piece of my mind, walk out, sue the company for allowing it to happen, and find another job.
    But that's just me. icon_biggrin.gif

    Pastels (including pink) can look masculine, if you're tanned. Otherwise, they do end up looking pretty gay.

    It had nothing to do with the shirt. It had everything to do with the hot muscles. icon_biggrin.gif

    Until I was 20 my mother used to buy my clothes for me. Indeed, it was more an "outfitting" that was primarily done only twice a year in Spring & Fall, and aside from my motorcycle jackets and boots, I never bought my own ordinary clothing until I went into the Army.

    And one of the colors she always got for me, in polo shirts and neckties, was pink. "Pink's your color, Robert," she would tell me, and her wicked sense of humor & irony should have told me sooner that she knew I was gay long before I knew it myself.

    I still like pink, BTW, and it remains my color, but now in more ways than one.
