Ink Pink, You Stink!!!



First of all, I’d like to apologize to any girls I may have said that to in grade school. The pink you were wearing actually looked quite nice on you and you truly didn’t stink. Truth be told, I kind of liked you and I was trying to impress you with my uncanny ability to rhyme words - the fact that we didn’t keep in touch tells me I missed the mark. Alas....back to the Pink. Here in B.C., last week, many folk took part in the annual “pink shirt anti-bullying” day, where kids and adults alike were encouraged to wear pink to work, or school, to show their support to put an end to bullying. The movement had its start on the east coast of Canada a few years back when hundreds of high school students showed up at their school to show their support for a grade 9 classmate who had been bullied and called a homosexual for daring to wear pink the day before (because only homosexuals wear pink, right? and of course, homosexuals should be assaulted because they are not hetero, right? Oh, how I love the simple reasoning of the modern day cro-mags)….so yeah, I’m a few days late, but that really shouldn’t be any surprise by now.



The pants were easy, since I bought every color-variation of fightclub pants in existence, I knew there was a pink pair waiting to be let loose on the masses. I used to wear the occasional pink shirt to school to bait the wannabe bullies…although that only works a few times if successful. Before I vacate my soapbox for mellower pastures, seriously, if you think that you can identify someone’s sexual preference by the color of the clothes they wear, you are a prehistoric twat that needs to get out more - and if you believe wearing pink could actually affect your desirability with the opposite sex, you need to stop dating bigots and work on your fragile ego. So, yeah, Dutch Touch just came out with some nice simple colored tees, in both jacket and shirt layers, with an underwear layer so you can rock them with your low cuts. Appropriately, I bought the pink one...but I feared that I would burn your retinas out, so I wore a vest out of sheer love for all three of you, my dear readers. I’m glad I did too, because this was one of those purchases that kind of fell between my inventory cracks, so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw Ache's Riders Down Vest - I like the patches, and I like the way they managed to get the vest to look puffy without going overboard and creating a black flotation device…props! A long-postponed trip to Boon rewarded me with both a new bad arse skull necklace and an even badder curly black hawk, which I used with great effect to finish my “wear pink and carry a big stick” look. Where’s the stick you ask? As official half arsed editor/censor, Dove deleted that picture…ie – removed it and put it in the secret folder on her C drive….

Seriously. Great post. I think this
campaign needs to spread, too.

Bubblicious yum! And, I agree...we need this campaign from BC to Chicago to Australia and all those other places inbetween! <3

/me squeezes your Pink.. and its an excellent campaign, but I cant convince the rednecks *sigh*

Wonderful post, and I love the message combined with style! Pink is usually associated with 'high class' and 'metro' as opposed to the gritty side of fashion, so I really think it worked well with the idea that not everything has to fit into one neat hole.

I'd love to hear about this campaign more, as it would be very fun to do in SL and other RL communities.

Winter's comment is great, too. XD I was wondering if he would pop up.

As for the color and my opinion, I only take issues with it atheistically, as it can make some skins too pale or just stand out too much on its own. That's generally the attitude that comes with pink though- "I'm here~!"
