[copied from my Fashion class blog I wrote for assignment]
The reading discussion I lead last class about the article “Express Yourself” got me thinking about my guy friends who have style and the way they are portrayed by some people. Being that I work in the nightlife scene, I have seen my fair share of metrosexual men and barbie doll looking women. Nightclubs downtown are filled with people dressing like that. But here I want to focus on metrosexual men.
One of the definitions on Urban Dictionary about the term:
A normally straight male who possesses qualities of a gay male without being attracted to men. A metro often appreciates the finer things in life and enjoys making himself look good; be it through styling his hair or wearing fashionable clothes.
Person 1: “Is he gay”
Person 2: “No, he does dress well, but he has a wife”
Person 1: “Oh, he must be metro then”
