Why I Like Pink, Part 2

stevencx asked: So what do you think about men rocking the pink?

I answer: I love it. Pink is feminized, so a man who wears pink is symbolically de-masculinating himself. Women's power and equality (equality is different from sameness) shouldn't come from women masculating themselves and attempting to create a likeness (read sameness) to men. I also don't think that men should feminize themselves to create a likeness to a gendered notion of "woman" to create equality. Rather, I think that men and women should meet somewhere in the middle, and I think that if most people are truly their whole selves, then they are somewhere in the middle. Gender isn't black and white.

In short, a man that wears pink is one awesome dude.

Pink is the shit.

That guy is awesome anyway. To make the gender discussion even more interesting, consider that Veloshop's owner, Molly Cameron, is a woman in a man's body, thus she has to race with the elite men and kicks ass with the likes of Swanson, Tonkin, etc.
