Why is pink color associated with gay people?

My parents bought clothing for me, including some pink things, nobody told me to be anything wrong. Once I got internet connection in 2005 and freedom of making new friends, some people called me gay for this, they also blamed my parents for buying wrong clothing for me and told me to dress how I like rather than how my parents like.

But… the PROBLEM is that I personally love pink color, I always love GIRLS that dress in pink. Also I was told to behave as I would like others to behave towards me, thus when I was dating my girlfriend, we were both wearing some pink items. I think that only a fucking idiot can call gay a boy dating girls while wearing pink.

I added in Yahoo Messenger list a 17-year old student living in my town, from the first day we looked like good friends. He requested a photo with me, I said that I will show him later. Then we started to talk about girls, then about a possible meeting in the city. Now, was the time for photo exchange. He sent me one crappy photo, I showed him 10 photos of me, incidentally in (only) two of photos I had a pink shirt. He replied “Are you sure that you love girls?“, “YES!“, “I don’t believe, You’re gay, you like pink! I’ll be right back“… but in fact he blocked me for ever.

I noticed this stupid rule beyond my country limits: in a european GTA SA-MP server, that assign players a random color for their names, incidentally got pink color and said “Oh fuck, my color is gay“, “Admin, please change my gay color!“.

I consulted with other friends more educated, they told me that only IDIOT kids can associate a color with sexual orientation. Today I think that calling gay a boy wearing pink is a fucking stupidity like calling whore any girl in skirt because the almost all prostitutes wear skirts.

Beside this, I don’t understand why so many people call me gay. Recently on the same GTA SA-MP server I tried to get friendship with a player from Brazil, after he told me that is 28-year old and real estate agent (because I love Brazilian architecture and real estate), after few days in which we talked nicely, his behavior changed suddenly, asked me several times if I am gay, despite that I told him that I love girls, he was giving me camera for no reason showing himself topless, boxing and saying that will kill me because I am gay.

At that moment I did not had any photo of me public on internet and I never send photos to foreigners, so he could not be influenced by pink…

Can someone help me with explanation?
