We’ve all seen them. Guys walking round wearing pink shirts and thinking they’re the bees knees. You confront them and tell them just how silly they look and you always get the same response.
“Well I’m secure enough in my sexuality to wear pink. If you’ve got a problem with that, then well… I guess you’re a little too insecure yourself.”
And then they smile to themselves, knowingly. In their heads they’ve just proved that they’re sexually mature and that you’re not. Score one for them eh?
Want to wipe that smug look off their faces? Try this response.
The Furie Response
“Good for you mate. Of course I’m secure enough in my own sexuality not to need to go looking for some way to ‘prove’ it to myself and others all the time. I’m sure you’ll get to that stage too one day.”
And then I pat them on the shoulder sadly and walk away, leaving their smug grin dripping slowly off their chins.
