Its a sterotype from the modern age. I believe that pre-victorian era pink was a male color, as it was a lighter shade of red, the traditional warriors color and women wore blue. Sometime in the victorian era i think they switched and men wore blue ,girls wore pink. That new sterotype has stayed with us right into the modern age. Personally i hate this sterotyping. Because i love pink, its my faveorite color but i cant wear anything pink because id get called a girl.

oh, well. but really, i don't see anything wrong with men wearing pink, even light pink. if they look good in them, why not, right? women wear blue all the time,after all...
