Pretty In Pink

A while back my wife bought me a pink shirt to wear to work, which always creates a funny, uncomfortable feeling for most men (either to wear pink or stand next to a guy that is wearing pink).

You can see me wearing it here at this past Tuesday’s pastors meeting taken by one of my coworkers:


While this sometimes scares men to wear such a feminine color, I on the other hand embrace it.

I have heard some men say, “I am secure enough in my masculinity to wear pink,” or “I am man enough to wear pink.”

However, knowing my inability to work with any mechanical object, my lack of interest towards cars (i.e. I drive a ’95 Ford Windstar), and my distrust with the outdoors, I take the opposite approach and embrace my femininity.

Some say, “I am man enough to wear pink,” but I say, “I am actually woman enough to wear pink.”

I am woman, hear me roar!
