What the Hell?
From MSNBC This article trumpets a new breed of male: the metrosexual
So what makes a metrosexual man? He's been defined as a straight, sensitive, well-educated, urban dweller who is in touch with his feminine side. He may have a standing appointment for a weekly manicure, and he probably has his hair cared for by a stylist rather than a barber. He loves to shop, he may wear jewelry, and his bathroom counter is most likely filled with male-targeted grooming products, including moisturizers (and perhaps even a little makeup). He may work on his physique at a fitness club (not a gym) and his appearance probably gets him lots of attention -- and he's delighted by every stare.
Cmon now the only moisturizer a straight man uses is KY jelly, ya know what I mean? So a metrosexual is essentially a gay-acting straight man? This is such ablolute bullshit as to have an actual smell coming from my monitor. Only a gay man does more than any two of these things. Myself owns up to six of these,(not telling which), my boyfriend all but two or three, so you can see where Myself is going with this. Any man who can catagorize himself as metrosexual (although Myself doubts that any man would actually admit to being this), has gay tendencies, no other way around it. Myself thinks this is all about what Myself has heard of as the pussy-fication of the American man. A (I can barely bring Myself to keep using the term) metrosexual is exactly the kind of man that an Oprah/Sex in the City-watching woman seem to want, which in Myself's view of the world rule #6 most men are not. I will give this crap creedence when Myself sees Howard Stern cry on the air because Robin makes fun of him.
