A metrosexual is termed coined by a NY Times journalist for urban heterosexual males who show a keen interest in shopping, fashion, and other traditionally "gay" interests.

I read somewhere that a metrosexual refers to an urban male who pays close attention to his appearance and loves shopping and clothes, an urban male that has the characteristics typically associated with a gay male, but is usually straight. David Beckham is an example of a metrosexual.

Basically put, and this will probably be debated, it is a term generally applied to a new hybrid male lifestyle where an eye for the finer things in life, i.e. calorie counting, pedicures, nail polish, etc., does not negate masculinity and is not considered gay. It has nothing to do with sexual orientation or sexual practices.

David Beckham is considered to be a metrosexual.

Howard Dean claims to be one - though he later claimed not to know what that meant.

I thought it turned out that most "metrosexuals" just turned out to be plain old (rather boring) homosexuals. I read in Men's Health that the term was coined way back in 1994, and the "movement" is considered to be a bust, I think.

Read all about it: http://www.newyorkmetro.com/nymetro/shopping/beauty/features/4533/index.html

Here in NY, at least, there has definitely been a bit of a metrosexual boom in the past few years. The number of legitimately straight guys who are comfortable going to get a manicure, using eye cream, and/or practicing yoga, for example, has soared. So, I would disagree strongly with MD-90, at least as far as urban areas are concerned--just look at the popularity of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" if you need proof.

Nope, still sounds gay to me.

So whaddya call a gay guy who has traditionally "straight" interests?

I may be gay, but the day I get a manicure, use eye cream, practice yoga or go to a day spa is gonna be the day hell freezes over. Then again, I never did quite understand traditional "gay" interests.

A word used to describe those pussies who's balls havent dropped and are yet to come out o the closet yet.
I know thats harsh but i dont care. I would have loved to live back in the 1930's where the was no TV no mobile phones and none of this boring new age shit. it was also a time where a bloke was a bloke if a bloke didnt give a firm handshake you could safely assume he was gay. Now there is so much excuses for everything and there is always something "new and improved". This isnt living anymore its dieing with style.
cheers

Some bad news for you: This is the 21st century, and unfortunately society has been so liberalised that even people like you are allowed to go out in public, use computers, and occasionally even hold responsible positions.

a Metrosexual is a MARKETING term used by cosmetic, medical, etc..industries to sell gullable men products they have been hoisting on our sisters for years. After they trapped all the poor girls in a cycle of consumerism and body modification naturally men were next..here come the metrosexuals.
If a guy calls himself metrosexual he is either a sucker or gay.
my 2 cents.
cheers!

I just took the test on the first link and I got this,

Stud! You're a manly man! May I suggest some more contact sports like football? You can watch big, strong athletes sweat away as they tap each other's ass.

I guess I am gay. Wait. NO! I hate football.

Whew! That was close.



Is grammar no longer taught is schools? Saying "me and her" or some such implies illiteracy.

As far as I'm concerned there's only one class of guys that should ever get manicures, wear makeup, and whatnot, and that's actors who have to look "good".

there is a great south park episode on metrosexuality, you should check it out.
i also think it is like alek says, pure marketing. these days any not 100% average behaviour gets a name so it can be marketed better. nothing more nothing less.

I'm confused.

Why is our society 1) obsessed with the idea of not stereotyping, and then 2) creating MORE stereotypes?
