This is a dumb reason to stop wearing them. Women wear leather jackets but it's not necessarily a feminine thing to wear, or aviators, it's just stupid.

Long hair on men has gone back and fourth on a masculine/feminine scale numerous times in every culture through history.

Women didn't exactly "steal" them but coin purses worn on the belt or with a strap were gender neutral, when pockets in trousers became common men started carrying their coin purses inside their pockets and they evolved in to wallets. Pockets in skirts and dresses was less popular and so womens coin purses evolved in to handbags.

For 100 years or so pink was a male colour and blue was female.

In my region scarves are typically seen as feminine, same with winter coats/jackets that go past a persons hips.

Makes me sad because I like both these things but they're a bit "gay" here.

I definitely agree with the scarves thing (here in Australia it’s seen that way too), but I’m surprised at long coats. Where I live it’s considered a gender-neutral item of clothing that people that usually have good and respectable jobs wear on the way to and from work in colder weather.

The colour pink.

At first, the colours pink and light blue became established as nursery colours in the mid 19th century, but with no gender signifier. Some, in fact, associated pink with the colour of blood, and was thus seen as the more masculine one.

As late as June 1918, an article from the trade publication Earnshaw’s Infants’ Department said, “The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls. The reason is that pink, being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.” Other sources said blue was flattering for blonds, pink for brunettes; or blue was for blue-eyed babies, pink for brown-eyed babies, according to Paoletti.

In 1927, Time magazine printed a chart showing sex-appropriate colors for girls and boys according to leading U.S. stores. In Boston, Filene’s told parents to dress boys in pink. So did Best & Co. in New York City, Halle’s in Cleveland and Marshall Field in Chicago.

The process of associating pink with femininity was very gradual and took place in the marketplace between the 1920s and the 1950s, as parents increasingly begun choosing pink and pastel colours for girls.

The US presidential inauguration of Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953 when Eisenhower's wife Mamie Eisenhower wore a pink dress as her inaugural gown is thought to have been a key turning point to the association of pink as a color associated with girls. Mamie's strong liking of pink led to the public association with pink being a color that "ladylike women wear." The 1957 American musical Funny Face also played a role in cementing the color's association with women.

It would be more accurate to say that there was no strict gender signifier associated with colour until WW2.

But yeah, it was very usual for men to wear pink, particularly during the Renaissance and the Baroque era.

scarves and long coats are feminine

Only in the north, scarves and trench coats on men are pretty much the norm in the few parts of Australia that are actually freezing cold and wet

"handsome" is a valid, archaic word which can be used to describe a particular sort of beauty. Today, it is almost exclusively used to refer to masculine beauty, and if you were to use the word "handsome" in an effort to genuinly compliment a woman's beauty, she would invariably take it as an insult or "a neg", because the word connotes manliness today.

Something else here: the old practice of dressing infant boys in dresses until they start running around on their own, at which point their authentic boyhood is reached, and they start wearing "masculine clothing".

Pretty much. Though historians seem to disagree whether the adoption of pink as a girly colour was driven by market preferences to which the advertising industry adapted to, or whether massive advertising campaigns modified those market preferences, or a feedback loop between both forces. Your mileage may vary. It's a chicken or the egg type of debate.

All of them agree however that the switch was gradual and happened between the 1920s and the 1950s.
