What we really need here are some perspectives from women or openly gay men. Their approval or disapproval is the only thing that will satisfy those where who are afraid to wear pink. If they just didn't like pink, we'd be having a different conversation.
A comment from women?
I universally get positive comments from women when I wear a pink shirt, and especially from my wife. (Sadly for her, I won't wear my pink shrt with the pink tie she bought it with, although I wear both of them separately.)
