I need your opinion

I just got a new helmet and I need your opinion. I got it because I wanted a cheap helmet (paid $114), Snell 2010 to be able to use it for car racing, and I wanted a blue one. I didn't realize how girlish it is. And the question, is it a girls helmet? Will I look gay in it? :P

The helmet will not make you look gay. Your lips on another guy's 'helmet' will.

Everyone Exaggerates

Just do yourself a favor, and send me the helmet. You don't want to have to deal with the embarassment of wearing it. I'll take one for the team and wear it.
