I’m sending out an SOS for all guys reading this article; stop wearing pink. Ladies quit trying to make us wear pink. I would say it’s out to wear it for breast cancer awareness day, but that has to be the biggest excuse guys use to feel ok about wearing pink.
Some guys “try to own it” when they wear pink. You know who else “owns it”; Run-way models and drag queens. When you try to own something like an article of clothing, just know that all you’re doing is trying. You aren’t actually doing it. Plain and simple, guys aren’t supposed to wear pink. You know who can “own” wearing pink; a vagina.
Ladies, stop trying to make guys wear it. Offering sexual favors in exchange for your man buying and or wearing a pink shirt is not cool, because most guys will go for it. If we try the same thing, like asking you to wear man clothes, women will actually temporarily regress back to bad intercourse if you even get any. We don’t try to change your identity, so quit trying to change our sexual identities.
Another excuse guys will use for wearing pink is that the color they are wearing is not pink but its salmon. It’s like my mom use to say, “When in doubt, throw it out.” Odds are if it looks like pink, it is pink. Bottom line, there are only two excuses for a man wearing pink:
1)He’s gay (nothing wrong with that)
2)Renting or buying a vagina costume was too expensive so instead you went with the more fiscally responsible route; wearing pink.
I don’t know why this is even an issue for guys. Pink is a color. It is not a status symbol or a representation of your sexual orientation. It is a color. That is all it will ever be.
Guys that wear pink are no better than guys that don’t. If you are a guy and you think that, please consider that what you are wearing doesn’t define you. Phrases like, “Real men wear pink” never made sense to me. I personally think that real men can wear whatever the hell they want and not give what other people say.
That being said, the color pink doesn’t make guys look gay. It makes you look approachable to girls. If it was between a guy in a “Tap Out” shirt and a guy in a pink shirt: the pink shirt wins. If it was between a guy in a “Metallica” shirt and a guy in a pink shirt: the pink shirt wins, so on and so forth.
I don’t think guys should overanalyze what they wear. That just makes them more like women every day. All we do is overanalyze what we wear.
“Does this make me look fat?”
“Do I look like a slut in this?”
“Do I look like I’m asking to be raped?”
Well…maybe not that last one. Point being, just pick a shirt and wear it. If you don’t like pink, don’t like it. Please don’t wear it because you think chicks dig it. We honestly don’t care that much. We never have.
