    Our whole lives we are told that pink is a girls color. Its known as a color that girls wear more than guys. If a girl wears pink she’s pretty, and if a guy wears pink he’s masculine “in touch with his sensitive side”

    DO I like pink because I am trans? or is it because I have been told that pink is for girls? 

    This is a psychological question. I suppose it comes down to the personality. Someone could say pink is their favorite color it has always been their favorite color, and they just like it because they do. Its just another color.

    I have been told that its a girly color. I like to feel girly so I wear pink, purple turquoise etc. Whos to say I haven’t been brain washed by trends and gender deciding on the assumption of ideals from those that have come before me.

    Some natural girls oppose pink because its too girly and they wear darker colors, and scoff at anyone who would decide to wear such frilly things. Growing up I was a guy who wore black with black and black. Those around me wore many other colors there were guys that wore jeans and plaid. It just wasn’t for me. So I didn’t wear it, I was told that I was emo, but I didn’t act emo. Is girly just a state of mind?  maybe it comes down to how other think about the color.

    You might think that pink is girly and so you wear it proudly, only to find out that the people you wore it around think its a masculine color.

      As a child my parents were building toy for me as a gift. They sneakily (at least to a 5 year old) asked what color I wanted it. When it couldn’t be rainbow colored I decided on pink.

      So well before I had any inkling of being transgender pink (and later purple) was my favorite color.

      Amongst my peers I always hid that those were my favorite colors instead picking things like blue or red to fit in. I was afraid of being mocked if anyone found out.

      Happily, when I got my last phone my wife encouraged me to get the pretty purple case for it. Small steps?

      I secretly like pink from a young age. Before I even realized I’m transgender.

      it doesn’t have to be pink, its just a color. Substitute your girly color with my reasoning and then make your answer. The question is, is a color girly because the world tells us its girly, or because it is.

      As a woman, I love lavender, turquoise, teal blue, purple, red, mauve and I wouldn’t have a problem wearing something pink.   🙂

      I have always liked strong colors over pastels. Pastels never did it for me. They just seemed to be weak and washed out. A while back I replied to a question about our favorite colors. What I discovered is that I had 11 purple items and 2 lavender ones. Other than black, purple/lavender items are the most prevalent. I do have pink items, but they are more related to fushia rather pink specifically…
