    Are you living in the 1960's, wimpy and femmy go together?
    Skinny jeans are God awful though.
    Yes. Now I'm going to get in my hippy wagon, listen to some Beetles, smoke some weed and do some protesting :ninja:

    Hmm, so you are implying to be metro-sexual is to be gay?

    Being gay is only, and only about being attracted to the same gender. Gay men don't have some sort of gene that makes them more fashionably sound or whatever.

    People like you who rely so blindly on stereotypes sicken me.
    Oh, alright, because 'camp' sounds so much better and is obviously far less likely to cause offence :rolleyes:

    I think it has something to do with the number of women who are on the pill.
    Non-pregnant women want a real man to knock them up with their manly genetics.
    But women who are already pregnant (and the pill makes a woman's body think it is pregnant) want a nice, safe, gentle, caring man to look after them and bond with them and stuff.
    I agree to some extent. There is evidence that certain genes (MHC, if you're interested) influence who we are attracted to and that taking the pill changes a woman's preference. A pregnant woman supposedly seeks people who are more similar (i.e. family) and will protect her, while a woman who isn't pregnant seeks males who are dissimilar, to encourage genetic diversity.

    lol. Didn't read my post at all did you?

    Let me make it simpler for you.

    Gay -> Only, and only about being attracted to the same gender.

    Gay men might be camp, straight men may be camp as well.

    Your saying "gay tendencies" is offensive because it re-enforces the stereotype that gay men are camp. It is like some girl saying "Oh, I don't like girls with lesbian tendencies...Their ultra short hair and combat boots look hideous". Get the drift?

    Oh and by the way, the OP wasn't dumb enough to make such a juvenile remark. His post his about metro-sexual men (regardless of their sexuality) being more preferred by women these days.

    I absolutely despise these new things/breeds of skinny-jean-emo-scene-hipster-[insert other related terms] boys with that ridiculously high girlish voice. Wouldn't be surprised if they waxed their bodies/legs on a routinely basis.

    It seems now that the 'metro sexual' man is what most girls go for. When i was in high school i used to get a lot of attention from girls. Im white 6ft 2 and well built. Now it seems because i dont wear skinny jeans and cry at films im not the desired man. When did this change and when will this fad fade? I thought men were suppose to be men?!
    LOL. Sure you're not trolling? The vast majority of women want a man who is tall and well-built.

    Ohh, ok, I get it - you're procrastinating, gotcha
    Look, to be perfectly honest I couldnt give a toss
    All I said is I'm not attracted to metro-sexual men because they are too 'camp' for my liking - tis not a crime though I apologise if my opinion on a topic of subjective attraction offended you

    ALL of my friends like the sensitive type! I can never be around their boyfriends for more than reason.
    However - a dying breed indeed, as myself I managed to find only one manly guy in my area... and that was a year ago. There are no more! :|
