It's Not Pink, It's Salmon!




I saw a photo the other day of two popular men in the wrestling world and one not-so-popular girl in my world. These men were "The Rock" and John Cena while dwarfed in their middle was Snooki. What captured my attention was the suits these men wore. They looked nothing like wrestlers but professional men except for their strong gigantic physical attributes that could be traced and mapped even when covered with those suits. But I was impressed about the new meaning men are giving to the color pink because some men now wear the color without giving it further thought. Pink for some reason is a designated color for little girls, but not anymore in my opinion. I hear this quote more often that "real men are not afraid to wear pink" and I must say I agree. Men do not have to nickname their pink shirts or polo salmon-colored because this does not add any "ounce of masculinity" to the color. I'm not agreeing with the myth that pink is a feminine color. I think pink should be dressed based on complexion and outfit color-coordination. The Rock wore a pink shirt with his suit and I absolutely loved the look. Dear guys, if you've secretly loved pink and you believe it suits you, I urge you to wear it and not give a hoot about what anyone thinks. But if you feel like you would have to explain to anyone about your color choice, tell them Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson wears pink too.
