SHOPPING: YUCKY FOR MEN
delves into the new cultural phenomenon of male shopping in the media, which is threatening to take metrosexualism to the 'burbs.
Women and gay men are not trying to turn straight men into gay men. I find it fascinating that the handful of very successful straight men I have dated all dressed well, were impeccably groomed, and had great interior design. I know not every guy with money has good taste or style. There are poor guys with good taste and style, too. I even know gay men with bad taste!
People do make first impressions partly on outward appearances. When I was in Florence and Paris I noticed most men took pride in their appearance. Some of my guy friends would surely call these men "metrosexuals." But seriously, that's not possible guys. Being a slob and wearing clothes with holes is not manly--it's gross.
