What are your thoughts about men with color contacts? - Page 3

post #31 of 36
I don't see how coloured lenses would be "gay," literally or figuratively. This just supports the notion that gay men are necessarily somehow always trying to be trendy or fashionable, which is ridiculous.

However, I would say it's quite similar to a girl who coats her face in makeup. Or a guy who gets a chin implant or something. It's like you're trying to be someone you're not.

I got the Freshlook colorblends that have 3 colors instead of one. I only went a shade lighter but it has some gray/green in them but they look good. I've been getting more attention from the females than i was before. The only thing is that people who already know me might notice them and think i'm a little light in the loafers. Expecially the guys at the gym. I really shouldn't care what people think when it comes to my manhood but I sometimes think it's a little too metro. What do youall think? I'll post a pitcure if you want to see.

my take is:

- you look great in the pic, not sure how different it is from your normal look though

- if you are going to bust a move like this go big or go home. by that I mean do it with total confidence and committment or don't do it at all. if you think you need to validate your decision here, then maybe it wasn't the best thing for you to do in the first place. if you had posted, "dudes, I am rocking colored contacts and I look great!" then I think it would work better for you.

There is nothing inherently gay about wearing colored contacts, however in the black community, it has become associated with a certan subset of gay black men who have adopted the practice. It's a signifier, like being a leatherman.

True, but those are often blue and look incredibly strange

Do what makes you happy, knowing you're on a slippery slope toward shoe lifts and spanx...
