    When a male wears nail polish then he is going to face harassment. Why? Because he is challenging social convention. He isn't acting like all the other guys. 

    I hope you continue painting your nails. Society counts on its youth to challenge social convention and expand our freedoms and tolerances. Challenge your friends to join you on your mission to expand male freedoms. Challenge them to let you paint just one nail just to see if they are strong enough to be a social renegade.

    There is no law against it. That's what we mean by a free society. It doesn't mean nobody is allowed to comment unfavourably on your looks. That's also what we mean by a free society.

    You, like many others, do not understand what free really means.

    You're the only boy who's emo in your whole school? I guess if you want to do it, you'll have to stick up for yourself.

    To me it means you are a homosexual goth man.

    Well, you said it in your question. It's a socially uncommon way to express yourself. People who don't adorn themselves in the way you're describing tend to think people who wear black, paint their nails black, etc. are edgy, irresponsible individuals.

    If it helps you out any, I think that black nails on females suck, too.
