    I put aqua accents on my grey Accel fins, have a bright aqua snorkle, a mostly aqua background on the seaturtle picture on my mask strap. My pony rig is bright yellow. All my hose QR's are color coded. I'm straight but who the eff cares. People ought to effing grow up.

    The answer is people shouldn't think hassling others is fun, regardless of the topic. Yeah, that problem will never be fixed but you can't live your life worried about what others think because they aren't picking on whatever because there is actually a problem there. There is no problem. They've just learned to do that to feel superior to others or at least SOMEBODY so at least they aren't on the bottom. Fix the problem they're picking on(make your fins black in this case) and they find something else to pick on. You have to be secure in yourself which includes your gender orientation or you fall prey to whatever morons decide to pick on.

    You've got to have a lot of time on your hands to worry about colors on somebody's outfit.

    And NO, not everyone in the US is scared of gay people.

    No sense of humour today, hunh?

    I was merely amused that it appeared to me that the big fins were referred to as fins in the materials, whereas the smaller ones, referred to as flippers.

    To me, Flipper is a dolphin. :p

    I wonder if the culture drrich2 describes could be studied
    and if the ten that liked his post would see some benefit

    Part of this is having the ability to laugh at yourself. And that can be a factor of self confidence and being comfortable with yourself. Some authorities put the ability to laugh at yourself as the pinnacle to a sense of humor.
