Do you think it's okay for boys to wear pink?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

So my son and I went shopping because he needed some new clothes and his tastes (he's 6) run towards the preppy, so we got him some khaki shorts and some polo shirts and one of them he picked out was a pale pink. We got home and my husband FLIPPED!

Do you think it's okay for boys to wear pink?

Who cares? If he is secure in his identity then let him.  Did your husband say why he flipped out? Its a COLOR not a gay or transgender sign.laughingMy 6'4", 300+ red head husband let my daughter, who was 4 at the time, paint his nails pink and wore the pink bead braclet she made him for a week or longer, can't remember.  He went to his regular stops like normal including the gun store and NOT one person questioned or laughed at him.  By the way he took my daughter to the gun store with him, they LOVE her there and  treat her like a princess and probably would let her paint all their nails!!!  Key thing, (sorry got off track) it soooo important to support your kid no matter why they want to wear pink!

RL sells colorfully clothing for men. A soft Pink can be very nice on boys or men.

Educate your dh pink does not make a boy gay.

But your dh is not alone on this so he may have problems in school? Sad!

No. Pink is banned in my home. I despise that color, (I have two girls, thankfully they love purple!)

Would he get just as upset if you bought your daughter a blue blouse?
Pink is my son's best color, a rosey pink that is. As a child, he had several pink polo shirts. Now as a man, he always makes sure he has at least one pink dress shirt & one pink polo.

Yes.  My son wears pink polo shirts and so does his dad.
