As for me (as a gender-fluid/cross-dreaming man myself), No, not yet; however, I want to wear earrings on a regular basis in due time.

I don't think earrings have anything to do with 'gender fluidity'. My husband has worn earrings for 16 years....it's just not a big deal for guys to wear most earring styles if they want. (Dainty little hearts on a dangle-ly chain...yeah...people might notice. Most studs (even larger ones) and hoops....not even worth note.)

Maybe not, but wearing earrings certainly isn't the only thing which I have planned in regards to this.

Years ago if you wore an earring in your right ear you were straight. If you wore it in your left ear you were gay. No males wore them in both ears at that time. Most folks thought it was odd for any male to wear them.

When I was a kid if u wore it just in your right ear you were gay if u were it in ur left ear u were straight lol. How ridiculous now that I think back on it.

Don't like earings on men tho. IDK...i'm just not a huge fan of men wearing jewelry. ?

I agree. I still find it kind of odd to see a man sporting an earring in each ear. I think it started in the NBA in the 90s.

Yes.

I'm 46 and wear a small silver hoop in my left ear and have for about the last 15 years. I work in IT (well, worked, having recently had my entire department outsourced to India - but I'll be working in the field again soon enough) and while it is not common, it's not unusual either.

Its purpose is a decoration, no different than a 'purposeless' painting on a wall or 'purposeless' stripes or other designs on a shirt.

I've had friends who really know how to pull off the hearing/jewelry look. I am a bit more laid back when it comes to putting myself together... I feel like if I added earrings to my ritual not only would there be added expense (and time selecting/putting in/removing), but I probably would be touching it all the time to ensure it is still there!

That stated, maybe someday I will be more into accessorizing than I am now.
