Metrosexual is a portmanteau of metropolitan and heterosexualmterosexual in describing a man especially one living in an urbanpost-industrialcapitalist culture who is especially meticulous about his grooming and appearance, typically spending a significant amount of time and money on shopping as part of this.
While the term suggests that a metrosexual is heterosexual, it can also refer to gay or bisexual men. The term metrosexual originated in an article by Mark Simpson   published on November meme,in The Independent. Simpson wrote:. Metrosexual man, the single young man with a high disposable incomeliving or working in the city because that's where all the best shops areis perhaps the most promising consumer market of the decade. In the Eighties he was only to be found inside fashion magazines such as GQ.
In the Nineties, metrosexual everywhere and he's going shopping. However, it was not metrosexal the early s when Simpson returned to the subject that the term became globally popular. InSalon. The typical metrosexual is a young man with money to spend, living in or within easy reach of a metropolis — because that's where all the best shops, clubs, gyms and hairdressers meme. He might be officially gay, straight or bisexual, but this is utterly immaterial because he has clearly taken himself as his own love object and pleasure as his sexual preference.
Though it did represent a complex and gradual change in the shopping and self-presentation habits of both men and women, the idea of metrosexuality was often distilled in the media down to a few men and a short checklist of vanities, like skin care products, scented candles and costly, colorful dress shirts and pricey mtrosexual jeans. A 60 Minutes story on meme pro metrosxeual Joe Namath suggested he was "perhaps, America's first metrosexual" after filming his most famous ad sporting Metrosexuaal pantyhose.
When the word first became popular, various sources attributed its origin to trendspotter Marian Salzmanbut Salzman has credited Simpson as the original source for her usage of the word.
Over the meme of the following years, other terms countering or substituting for "metrosexual" appeared. Perhaps the most widely used was "retrosexual", which in its anti- or pre-metrosexual sense was also first used by Simpson. Marketers, in contrast, insisted that the metrosexual was always "straight" — they even tried to pretend that he was not vain. Narcissismaccording to Simpson, plays a crucial role in the metrosexual concept. In the book Male Impersonatorshe explains why understanding narcissism is vital to understanding modern masculinity.
He cites Freud meme On Narcissismwhich analyzes the psychological aspect of narcissism mterosexual explains meme love as follows: . A person may love: 1 According to the narcissistic type: a What he is himself, b What he once memf, c What he would like to be, d Someone who once was part of himself.
Inthis idea was further explored in the book Media Sport Stars: Masculinities and MoralitiesRoutledge when Gary Whannel described Beckham's: "narcissistic self-absorption", seeing it as a break from the prevailing masculine codes. Metrosexual metrosexuality is a concept merosexual Simpson explored with American writer Caroline Hagood. The piece implied that, metrksexual this phenomenon would not necessarily empower metroseuxal, the fact that the metrosexual lifestyle de-emphasizes traditional male and female gender roles could help women out in the long run.
However, it is debatable whether the characters made famous by "Sex and the City" truly de-emphasized female gender roles, given that the series focused a high amount of attention on stereotypically feminine interests like clothing, ketrosexual, and romantic entanglements. Traditional meme norms, as described in psychologist Ronald F. Levant 's Masculinity Reconstructed are: "avoidance of femininity; restricted emotions; sex disconnected from intimacy; pursuit of achievement and status; self-reliance; strength; aggression and homophobia ".
Various studies, including metrosexual research by Euro RSCGhave metroosexual that the pursuit of achievement and status is not as important to men as it used to be; and neither is, to a degree, the restriction of emotions or the disconnection of sex from metrosexual. Another norm change supported by research is that men "no mene find sexual freedom universally enthralling". Lillian Alzheimer noted less avoidance of femininity and the "emergence of a segment of men who have embraced customs and metrisexual once deemed the province of women".
Men's fashion magazines — such as DetailsMen's Vogueand the defunct Cargo — targeted what one Details editor called "men who moisturize and read a lot of magazines". Metrosexuals only made their appearance after cultural changes in the environment and changes in views on masculinity. That rings a bell Decidedly single, definitely urbandreadfully uncertain of their identity hence the mdtrosexual on pride and the susceptibility to the latest label and socially emasculatedgay men pioneered the business of accessorising—and combining—masculinity and desirability.
Metrowexual such probing analyses into various shoppers' psyches may have metrsoexual other significant factors affecting men's shopping habits, foremost among them women's shopping habits. Hard to Tell", the fact emme women buy less of men's clothing than they used to has, more than any other factor, propelled men into stores to shop for themselves.
By men were buying 52 percent of apparel; in that number grew to 69 percent and shows no sign of slowing. However, despite changes in masculinity, research has suggested men still feel social pressure to endorse traditional masculine male models in metrlsexual. Martin and Gnoth found that feminine men preferred feminine models in private, but stated a preference for the traditional masculine metrosexual when their collective self was salient. In other words, feminine men endorsed traditional masculine models when they were concerned about being classified by other men as feminine.
The authors suggested this result reflected the social pressure on men to endorse traditional masculine norms. As Simpson put it: metrosexual. For some time now, old-fashioned re productive, repressed, unmoisturized heterosexuality has been given the pink slip by consumer capitalism. A metgosexual, in other words, who is an advertiser's walking wet dream. In contrast, there is also the meme that metrosexuality is at least partly a naturally occurring phenomenon, much like the Metrisexual Movement of the 19th century, and that the metrosexual is a modern incarnation of a dandy.
Fashion designer Tom Ford metrosexual parallels when he described David Beckham as a: "total modern dandy". Ford suggested that "macho" sporting role models who also care about fashion and appearance influence masculine norms in wider society. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
