Welcome to Gaia! ::

First of all it's making me stand outside the local car wash because all the employees wear pink shirts. It's also making me check out fellow Asians way more than before, because it seems like mostly only Asian guys wear pink 0:

Dunno' if that part's good or bad.

The part that bothers me is that way more girls wear pink than guys. I don't like girls and I feel like it would be untrue to myself if I paid attention to girls just because of their makeup color. I wonder if I should be suppressing this, or just dealing with it...

And would that be a problem if I was in a relationship with a guy? Would it be majorly unwise to ask him to wear pink sometimes?

I encourage your love of pink. Crush those gender stereotypes. Support those who crush those gender stereotypes.
I like pink too!

Really though, don't think about it and don't go out of your way to indulge it; it's not a big thing.

some men look really hot in pink, specifically dress shirts. It's confidant. ;D

Confident. Confidant is "a person with whom one shares a secret or private matter, trusting them not to repeat it to others".

That was interesting. Especially:

Jo Paoletti of the University of Maryland, a longtime specialist on the topic, reviewed more than 500 descriptions and images of children's clothing appearing in print between 1890 and 1920 and notes a rapid "masculinization" of boys' wear, for reasons that remain obscure.

It's bizarre because I've always thought of pink as a female color; it never occurred to me that it could have been otherwise in the fairly recent past.

Blame the society you grew up in.
@CH1YO
Good advice. ;D I actually am liable to go out of my way to indulge something because I feel guilty about it.

@Others
Cool reminder.

Like how skirts are now women's clothing even though it was otherwise in the not-so-recent past?

Yes exactly! It's amazing how strictly most of us follow the arbitrary rules society creates. ^^ I am in favor of men in skirts.

Don't feel bad. I bought my husband pink underwear.
There are some ways to make it work. wink
Lesser Tile:
Half of the purpose of this thread was to see if anyone would post that. ;D

FearlessDictator:
That is encouraging. I guess it depends on the person in question.

You're fine, Dear. I don't think there is ever anything 'normal' about a fetish. And, that is why they should be embraced (unless dangerous of course!)

You can look at another girl without being homosexual. It's a sort of admiration. Don't worry about it.

As for your man. xD Ask away! Fetishes are something to be shared between partners. A man WANTS to turn on his girl, let him know just how to do it! Of course, he may ask you to assist in the indulgance of his own fetish but that's one of the fun things about relationships.


Personally, I have a pretty odd fetish in my opinion: Formal wear. Give me man or woman, in a suit and tie combo and I can barely stop myself. xD I also have an uncanny love of human anatomy, so even a body in it's prime is exciting to me. I also love x-rays, but there is no way to implament this into the bedroom and I don't I would want to try.
