Pink Lifestyle...

And that's fucking controversial..! Especially in Indian society, that's quite judgmental too. Of course the norms have changed regarding the color segregation, only for celebrities and on the fashion walks. The lifestyle when you opt pink is way too different from the lifestyle without pink in your life or on your body. Talking about men who love Pink, regardless the sexual orientation.




Fashion has no size, no color and no differences in any aspect. But fashion in terms of Pink has too many factors included mostly irrelevant and useless though. This positive color of Love has always lacked lovely emotion and indeed leave people in pain, especially for the men who opt it. Because the society has already segmented this color Pink to the little girls and to describe sugar and spice. People started judging others if someone wears pink, as if it has written in constitution that men shouldn't opt pink colored clothes.


Why it is a big deal if a guy steps out of a car in Pink suit? Why it is a sin if a guy runs on treadmill in pink shoes? Why the parents act so weird if a boy child asks for pink balloons? Why can't a teenage boy think twice before buying something in Pink? Well, in that case, my Fluffy Pink Pouch had literally dragged people's attention towards me too many times. That was my favorite pouch till date and I bought it in my 12th standard. I was 17 and I was bullied for carrying that pouch. It was just a pretty pouch which has good capacity to store a good amount of stationery and it costed me more than my examination fees. I didn't give up and I used it all the year and I still have it with me. Because I have a habit of securing expensive things, yes, it is quite expensive and matters the most than people's stupidity and ignorant minds.



Many people consider the color Pink as a feminine color. It is agreed that the color is quite sensitive and so smooth and soft. But that doesn't mean men shouldn't choose it right. Even today, in many places developed and underdeveloped, by many people literates and illiterates, this color is seen in a totally different mode. The reasons are so stupid to even describe. But, the Indian society has been developing the sense of accepting the lifestyle of people which includes Pink Fashion.


If a man opts Pink, then he would be considered as Gay. I still don't understand why people have to think like that. Pink is not the official color of Gays and not every gay guy is effeminate and importantly, there is no rule that every gay guy should like the color PINK. Then why so much of the drama involved if a man chooses this particular color which symbolizes affection, harmony and approachability? These all are positive traits right. In fact, psychologically Pink is the positive color. Then why so much of negativity spreads if someone wears Pink?



Pink Lifestyle is treated as the brave, extraordinary and something different. Why? It's a normal color and the people sports pink should also be treated normally. Psychologically, people are literally portraying the one who wears Pink in public as someone funky, experimental and extraordinary. There is no such thing called Extraordinary exists. Everything and every person are ordinary. It's just the people's perceptions make others extraordinary.


For example, in the LGBT community, gays behave in an outrageous way, if they wear Pink or if they have Pink highlights in their hair or if they wear shimmery pink shoes and jackets. You know why they behave like that? It's the societal pressure and anxiety makes them behave in such way. Because, if they don't behave bravely, they feel that they will get bullied for sporting Pink. Yes, this color is too controversial for men out there who love it and who want to sport it. This is like a psychological defense system, where a person forced to act like someone else or someone who gives zero fucks to the society regarding opting the color Pink, but indeed that person gives fucks to all the stares, the gossips and the judgmental looks and offensive phrase while he is walking on the streets wearing Pink from top to toe.



Why a color is simply ruling our minds psychologically? Why Pink can't be treated normally like blue or black? Why it gets so much of unnecessary attention? Why all the shades of portraying various sides of a person? Why the girls have all the fun wearing Pink? Why can't guys wear pink and still treated normal?


Many people are setting examples for wearing Pink outfits, hair and makeup, accessories, footwear and indeed the whole Pink fashion trend has come into the picture after too much of judgmental criticism has spilled in the society. The scenario is getting changed in India too, and people are shutting their mouths even though there are a hell lot of thoughts running in their minds. So, don't restrict yourself, including the Pink color because of people and their stupidity, because they judge you even though you wear any other color. In fact, the pink color is not controversial, the thoughts behind the assigning of colors according to the genders are controversial in a most ridiculous way. So, yeah Go Pink and Go Crazy!!
