    *shrug* Really, why does any article of clothing or action have an 'assigned gender'? It's just what people are used to. They rarely make any actual practical sense. If they see something different, they question why.

    I carry a wallet in my back pocket because I don't like purses. My mother told me to, "Stop doing that, it makes you look like a dyke." I just considered it more practical, and hadn't thought about the social implications it might have. Oh well. I like my wallet.

    I am forced to carry a purse

    My wallets don't fit in my pants haha. I'm also paranoid that I'll lose it.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Fair enough. I don't know why it's ignorant so much as living in a slightly more tolerant place though.. My experience is different, that's all.

    This goes mentioning that I live in the heart of Texas, where shitkickers and so called macho-ness abounds.. and even then, anti-jewelry sentiment hasn't been my experience. I think that's pretty extreme. I mean, it's fucking jewelry. Men of all cultures have been wearing jewelry for thousands of years. What's next? Will eating from a fork or spoon become taboo after awhile? Will the demand for manliness force me to consume my food like a dog? How about drinking soda from a straw.. it does conjure a sort of fellacio image doesn't it? Everything seems to be gay.

    In any case, it sucks if you live somewhere worse than I do.

    I don't see how it's ignorant. It seems like more of a personal preference and why would you care what other people think? Are they going to say it looks gay? And? You're gay.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    personally, i'm not into man accessories. with the exception of specific
    watches. don't like piercings on boys either.

    Taboo? Since when?

    Probably the only difference is that there are jewelry that is catered towards women over men and vice versa. In terms of what, I've noticed men's jewelry tend to be a bit bulkier than women's. Women's jewelry, on the other hand, tend to be more lean.

    It is like comparing cologne to perfume.

    Well somebody didn't get the memo.
    In other news, I have five bijoutier friends and all of them are male.

    Is it? I wear jewelry all the time and don't notice being treated differently. Then again, if I was, I wouldn't give a fuck.
    I want my cake and I wanna eat it too
