I'm kind of curious if this is more popular in other places than others. I know purple has that connotation, and I know gay and bi people who use it, but in school at any age if you liked purple it didn't necessarily "make you gay". Unless of course I was completely oblivious due to being a social invert. Which is possible.  Cheesy

So I might just be diverting this topic more than necessary, but I feel the need to add this. At my high school, I recently noticed that a lot of guys have been wearing purple lately. And I'm pretty sure they're not coming out =]

At school, purple was universally the colour of 'sexual frustration' with people who wore it being accused of an embarrassing celebacy (although I'm not sure it counts as celebate if you aren't getting any offers:) or opportunities). I don't think anyone at my school had the faintest idea that it meant anything about the object of one's desire. In my day an earing in the right ear on a guy said GAY!!, both ears said BI (but probably just noty ready to admit GAY) and the left ear said STRAIGHT (but probably not after a few drinks and their mates going home).

Either I'm really old, or I was really out of of it in school. I have never, ever heard anything about the color purple and being gay or bi?  Wearing clothing with rainbows was supposed to mean you were gay, or a guy wearing pink, but purple seemed to be neutral.  

What is with the stereotypes on colors?

Yes.. very off topic now lol. This must have just been my school. Would make a lot of sense. One person comes up with a rumor and the rest of the herd jumps at it, spreading it across their groups like the plague... so they can giggle and laugh at others' expense. Not saying it happened to me before but they took their made up stereotypes very seriously. Smiley

In high school a group of guys wore pink shirts to make some kind of "rebellious statement" on the first day of school (since pink was sort of a gay color for men they wanted to show off that they weren't afraid of wearing pink). Pink shirts were forever banned for guys to wear by the principle. They called it a gang symbol. Oi lol.

I SO would have been the mama in the principals office having a chat with him/her.  When my son was told he could not wear a bandanna because it 'made him look like a rapper' but my daughter was aloud because it was a hair accessory I created some noise.  And when girls were banned from wearing skirts unless they had pants on under them I gently asked the principal if she too would be adhering to that rule.  Sorry, this kind of thing get's me a bit uptight.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled thread - sorry about the hijack.

Er well, not necessarily on stereotypes, but I know on the bi and pan "flags" they have purple themes. Which is ironic, considering both Canada's and the US's history with Britain, purple was a symbol of royalty.

I don't think the parents paid enough attention to what went on in school unless something big was leaked. Who wants to go through the hassle of standing against a school's staff? I mean think of all the social rumors going around! " Oh apparently this mom had a problem with it, but we don't care if our kids can't wear a simple accessory.".

We had a rule in elementary through middle school where you couldn't wear shorts that were higher then your finger tips when you outstretched your arms down your legs. Man, those sexually active 12 & 14 year olds.. they ruined it for us all LOL.  Grin

I always thought purple was a bold color.

K I'm done. This is definitely not about psychic stuff lol.
