|Red painted toes, a toe ring and jeans. A normal male look|
So painting your nails has NOTHING to do with sexual orientation. You can be straight, gay or bi and paint your nails, but painting them doesn't change who you are. And if others think it does, so what. Yeah, I'm sure many guys have walked past me in the past 4 years or so of going out in public with my painted toes showing and thought that I must be gay, or a pansy. But I really don't care, it's my life and I'm going to live it the way I like. Now on that note, for those of you new to my story, I've been going out with my painted toes showing for around 4 yrs or more and have NEVER had one really negative remark about my toes, from men or women, so it's much more in your head than in reality.
So many people are afraid of anyone that acts 'different' than the typical male so they are quick to judge. But do you really want to be friends with people like this anyway? Probably not. Hopefully you are more open minded than those people and are learning to judge others based on their personality and not on how they dress or decorate themselves, or even if they are gay or bi.
On that note, it's time for me to go repaint my toes in a really cool light metallic blue. And I'm straight, I do construction work and I have no fears of losing my masculinity, but I'm not afraid to have color on my toes.
Feel free to post your experiences on this subject as well. And guys, just do it, it's fun.
