    With respect to “good-natured teasing” about gay colors or such: what is innocent fun to some may not be perceived as such by others. Many LGBTQ individuals have been on the receiving end of malicious bullying far too often, so many of us look over our shoulders frequently and recoil at any sign of anything that reopens old wounds. It’s self-protection, often learned the hard way, and not “being unable to take a joke” or such.

    I own a Speedo in Komen pink. I would mainly wear it just to be a provocateur.

    Can you get fins in 18% grey?

    An 18% grey speedo might work as well. Shoot a photo of ya arse and white balance off that shot.

    You are joking, but white fins can be used for setting your white balance.

    I was at the store a while back, shopping for a new shirt. My son started joking "you should get a pink one ".

    So I found as pink golden girls shirt, took him to karate practice in it. Then I cut the sleeves off and it's my new gym shirt. When you're Man enough to you wear what you want to wear...

    Matte black may be a thing for attack divers.
    Insecure men may find the need to copy that, because it would cement their masculinity.

    Some of us remain men no matter what the colour of our fins is. We can have yellow or white fins. Or black - but then it's a free choice.

    The only color I don't like underwater is solid red. I get so used to identifying my buddies based on the color of their gear and by the time we're at depth the red is useless as a quick and easy identifier.
