This is a serious question. I want to get the green iPhone 11, show it to my wife and she said is kinda “feminine” for a man. What you guys think?

Had a co-worker say that a white phone case is feminine because a man wouldn’t have a light colored case due to getting dirty at work. There’s so much wrong with that line of thinking that all I could do was not acknowledge his tomfoolery.

I’d advise doing the same with your wife. If YOU like it, go for it.

edit: and no, it isn’t feminine. It’s green ffs. Money is green. Weed is green. Green is awesome.

This is the green the OP is talking about.

It's your actions that make someone feminine or masculine. Not the colour of your phone. Get the colour you want!

I went with the midnight green 11 pro, but if I was in the market for the 11 it would be a tough choice between the green and the product red.

I was talking about the regular 11.
Sorry I misread your post. Some people will say the pastelish green of the regular iPhone 11 is feminine, but honestly... if you like it? Who cares what they think. Pastel colors in general are associated with women, but that doesn’t stop tons of men from wearing pastel colors through out the year.

Seriously, you questioning if the color of a phone defines your masculinity...?

I got the green and I don’t give two ***** what someone else thinks of that fact. I also currently have a gold XS Max. Hell, I’d rock a purple one if it was a shade of purple that I liked. Crazy how some people think certain color phones are gender specific.
