Is me, apparently.
I can’t really find it in me to disagree.
From the global trend-spotting/cool-hunting website Science of the Time:
Mark Simpson is probably the world’s most perceptive – and certainly the wittiest – writer about modern masculinity. Mark Simpson has by far the sharpest mind when it comes to changing masculinities. With a worldwide reputation, a long story of excellence and many international publications he is simply world-wide leading.
See, that’s the advantage of metro/gay. Homoerotic, automatic spam is actually craved and so the price of posting emails is abnegated, even made profitable.

I would call metrosexuality a sea change. It is about the dramatically shifting nature of male sexuality in the 21st century. Mark put a name to a change too massive more most people to realize was occurring. Sort of like F. Scott Fitzgerald writing about massive societal shifts in the post-WWI world in “This Side of Paradise”. But with chest waxing and sporno.
A trend is just short lived and superficial ; an epoch, in contrast is somthing which burns its way into the fabric of society all the way to the roots so that it becomes a permanent fixture. of the social subconsious.
what makes journalists still write about the ‘epoch’ now then, so long after u coined the term?
Because, my dear, metrosexuality wasn’t a trend – but rather an epoch!
Why do you think that the metrosexual trend is still so popular?
I can’t find it in me to disagree with them either.
Too kind, Sirrah, too kind!
You are to masculinity what Ms. Sullivan is to the obese hairy lesbian marriage movement. hands down!
