It’s the Breast Cancer Awareness month and so we wear pink. The Pink colour is currently considered a “girly” or “female” colour but it hasn’t always been so.
Here are 4 reasons why the colour pink should be worn by guys with pride.
1. Pink catches women’s attention
Think about it. Because it’s quite “unconventional”, it catches our attention. Also, because a lot of women were groomed with seeing pink as a feminine colour, they gravitate more to it. They’re attracted to the colour so once it’s on you, it’s definitely getting you all the girls.
2. Pink represents power
Pink ribbons were given to those who ran in the New York survivor race in 1991 – sponsored by the Susan G. Komen Foundation. A year later, the same kind of ribbon became the official symbol for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Other events throughout the ‘90s and 2000s brought out a “fierce” character to the color pink.

3. Pink used to be masculine
A 1918 trade catalog for children’s clothing recommended blue for girls. The reasoning at the time was that it’s a much more delicate and dainty tone. Pink was recommended for boys because it’s a stronger and more passionate color, and because it’s actually derived from red. (Source: npr.org)
4. You don’t need to follow everything society says
There’s really no reason to define your sexuality through colour. So be confident about it and show off your style by rethinking the place of pink in your wardrobe.
