Gay?

If wearing pink makes a man look gay, why doesn't wearing blue make a girl look lesbian?

hmmm..
pink doesn't make men look gay.. infact it gives them a soft musculine, polished look.

zahid said...

Oh...Nice one.. Perhaps actually men dont hav one stark and particular color that would represent malism :)

Vasanthan said...

a pink t-shirt is the best loud clothing a guy can wear to go clubbing. thats not gay at all.

vEENs said...

Arre..not anymore girl.
These days...guys are sporting a lotta pink in their wardrobe. And, as for me I think that too works down well...
Pink aint a girlie color anymore.

Vandita said...

i don't think wearing pink makes a man look gay... some ppl can carry it off some can't!

Solitaire said...

@ Reeta, answer it!

@ Knatchbulley, not the short, scrawny ones with long hair!

@ Zahid, maybe they don't but they may have particular colors that will not represent their "malism". (Does that word exist?)

@ the keeper, dads are not counted in the equation. :p

Solitaire said...

@ Vasanthan, realllllly? I dont think even girls like wearing pink to clubs.

@ Veens, movie stars don't count! they get away with everything right from wearing orange pants to being barechested in a club!

@ Cinderella, really? Some of the guys I know shy away from the pink color and give me strange looks when I suggest it to them.

Solitaire said...

@ Vandita, so don't the men who cannot carry it off well look gay?

I am not sure at what point this color categorization started. It wasn't so a few, maybe 5 or 6 years, back. No one really gave a thought to what color signifies what. Just wear what you like, no one's judging. I wish it were that simple again!

I think its not the color that belies the orientation of a guy, its the attention to detail. Take a random sampling of gays and straights, and you will find that the gays are impeccably dressed, the straights are more rugged. Why that is so, who knows!

Ghost Particle said...

uh what! hey....!
blue is just nice, it has no sexual orientation.

Pavi!!!! said...

hey..i like blue..my 2nd fav clr it is!
n naah guys who wear pink are not neccesarily considered gay anymore..things are changining.. But yeah ther is this 1 shade of pink that i think looks bad on men!

Cinderella. said...

Yeah ??
Thats strange...its 2008 !!
C'mon...
You should be the one, giving them the "strange looks".
Next time do that. Prob'ly they'll get the drift !

Cinderella. said...

I guess its the candy pink color Pavi is talking about, eh ?

Keshi said...

very good qn!

This is yet another sexist stereotyping. The world is crazy u know...very biased and full of prejudice.

Having said that Pink is in fashion for guys now...in Aus, it's the hottest color for business shirts and even casual-wear :) (not pink pants plz LOL!).

Keshi.

Pavi!!!! said...

@ cindrella - i donno how candy pink looks??:-( wat im talking about is one of the darker shades of pink!

carolinagal said...

I think 'pink is for a girl and blue for a boy', only exists for children nowadays. I agree that years ago, if a man was seen donning pink, he was laughed at, but lot of men these days proudly wear pink...and look quite hot if I might add ;)

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

There's no longer such a thing as color identity. Anybody can wear any color he wants as long as he's comfortable with that.

Jim said...

what did bt crist do?
he is my newest friend

zahid said...

I would love it more if the word did not exist...I love coining new words !!!!

D said...

Does pink make men look gay? I thought it made them look 'metrosexual'!

Iceman said...

pink? ewwwwwwwwwwww!

blue... cool...

Solitaire said...

@ Aneri, I think this categorization has been there for babies for a loooonng loooooong time. It just got carried forward into adulthood.

@ Ghost particle, hahah! I think you are one of the few ones who are reacting to the word "blue" rather than pink.

@ Pavi, I think you mean the "rani" color?

Solitaire said...

@ Cinderella, haha! Will try.

@ Keshi, very good point. Everyone is talking about how pink looks good on men. I wonder how they would react if a guy came swimming in pink trunks or came to a club in pink pants.

@ Carolinagal, Keshi thinks the same!

@ Mel, yeah...

Solitaire said...

@ Jim, ask him.

@ Zahid, haha, ok.

@ D, apparently not anymore..I mean the gay part.

@ Iceman, ok finally a man who does not like pink!

Ashu said...

Good question, but now i guess the pink inhibitions for men is on fade :))

Gangsta Markiv said...

Apparently, it is the US that makes this color demarcations. But for that place, men still wear Pink and we are obsessed with US that we follow *though we understand only half of what is told*, so pink is a taboo here too.

But Pink is a cool color. And bleau is an amazing color. Actually one of the research let to a conclusion that women by default like pink and men bleau. But I like pink too !

Krit K said...

You know, I'm not into stereotyping for most things.. and as much as I can deny it like the other poeple here, for this one thing, I do think that guys most often don't look too good in pink.
Not gay, but it just doesnt suit them, barring a few exceptions of course.

Why girls don't look like lesbians in blue, hmmmm, now that I have no clue about!
That's a very good question solitaire!
