Can tough guys get away with wearing pink? Or do they assume you like rainbows and ABBA music too?

I think a lot of guys can pull off pink. I don't really know what you mean by "tough"...If you're very masculine looking, girls will probably still find you attractive and manly when you wear pink. If you're feminine looking or pudgy/balding, people might tend to assume the rainbows...

If it looks good, I'd say go for it. There's something about tough guys in pink (or purple) that make them exude more masculinity. If a man can come out and wear a feminine color and still look tough, I'd call him confident and sexy, I wouldn't assume that he's gay. It's all a matter of how you carry yourself, not the color that you wear.

My brother told me that guys can wear pink, but it depends on the kind of pink. I don't really know what pink is acceptable, but I think only secure men can wear it. After all, we're taught that pink is universally a feminine color. If you can overlook that an wear pink because you want to, then it's more then okay.

I love seeing men wear pink! Tough or otherwise. :) I really see no problem with men wearing them. I even admire those who are man enough to wear that color. It means they are very broadminded, open to ideas and are not boxed into society's concept of what men or women can only wear. It's how you carry it that matters. Of course, you have to be confident and comfortable with what you're wearing in order to look good and make a nice projection. Otherwise, you will just look altogether awkward.

It seems here lately that guys wearing pink is the new fashion statement. It is acceptable. For the most part, if you wear it the correct way you know with the correct pants and shoes then it will look fine.

Yes! I had a Tough Guys Wear Pink shirt (and yes, it's hot pink) that was a million sizes too big for me, so I gave it to my super strong friend, Mikey. I don't think anyone would even risk saying anything about it either, since fighting him would be kind of like punching a brick wall, and he lifted myself and my two best friends up on a seesaw with one hand. I guess it doesn't matter WHAT people assume about a tough guy wearing pink, because they probably won't live to tell about it if they ask!

It takes a real man to wear pink. Meaning he is confident in who he is. He is not afraid to be a man and yet still show a softer, more fashionable side. Yes, a tough guy can wear pink. And look great while doing it.
