I recall reading a heated conversation in the shoutbox about metrosexual men which could also do for a thread. If we can discuss 'slutty clothes', why not male fashion too? ;)

What does metrosexual mean to you, and when does a man fit this definition? Is for example a man wearing a bag, bright colored clothes, or using perfume metrosexual? Is metrosexual a politically correct and trendy word for 'gay'?

I suppose some of the fashionable things were invented to keep women busy and give them more occupation. Men have more duties, like to provide for our families. We can't afford to be obsessed with such superficial things.

Metro sexual men are just the further feminization of the white male pushed on us as being trendy by the media. I see it as just another way of promoting race mixing and furthering the sterotype of black males being more masculine.

In my view metrosexuality is a symptom of the degeneration of the cultures. Hygiene and grooming are needed, but not exaggerations. The exaggerations are signs of the superficiality of nowadays. The physical aspect has become so important that the moral aspect counts less and less. I've seen it taken so far on a documentary about trends in the USA, in cities like Miami where it's said having a good looking body is a social pressure. In this documentary, the men wanted chest implants and even butt implants. I was shocked! :|

Neat but modest is the motto. I think as a men it's only important to look efficient, pretty is not a requirement.

Implants:-O?


Masculinity is a behavioural, attitude and yes one may it call moral issue. It has however many facets attached to it.

Yes, made from silicone or a material like that. The man who wanted butt implants said he wanted them to look better in jeans. The one with the chest implants was a model or sportsperson, so he considered it a mandatory investment. He said no amount of workout would produce such a body. Some of the men who wanted these image changes also had dyed hair and earrings.

The metro-sexual agenda goes back much further than the gay 60s.
For the conspirators to succeed in turning men into fairies they knew it could only work if they turned the women into dykes at the same time.
One of the first ways they induced males to behave effeminate was with the cigarette.
Unfortunately, young men think that smoking these dainty little cigars make them look cool or tough, and have no idea just how gay smoking a cigarette really is. At one time cigarette smoking was scorned by the masculine cigar smoker as homo-erotic posturing. Indeed, the cigarette was very popular with the gays and lesbians of Weimar Berlin. A trend that has persisted to this day.
Women have smoked cigarettes in order to feel equal to men. Take a look at some of those 1920s cigarette ads. They depict young, properly dressed Germanic women engaging in the pleasures of smoking. This is how they have always made their poisonous products appealing. If you portray a symbol of a people involved in a dubious activity as normal, even respectful, then most of the rest will fall into line. What better way to entice young women into exchanging the feminine for feminism.
Cigarettes were intended to make women butch or turn them into whores. It did not surprise me in the least when I read that 97% of female porn stars smoke cigarettes, or that the majority of hard-line feminists light up as well. Their cigarette of choice are more often than not the Marlboro Lights, AKA “slut butts”.
White males are slowly being turned gay and White females turned into lesbians. Which is the whole point of both feminism as well as the metro-sexual agenda, to turn women into men and men into women.

I can perhaps see that with filter cigarettes, however if you roll your own cigarettes I fail to see where that'd be "faggy". The "DIY" aspect of it makes for masculinity immediately.

The clean, ladylike practice of fidgeting around in a tobacco pouch and dirtying her hands to roll a cigarette? I somehow don't think so.

Essentially, rolling-tobacco is still considered the "male version" whilst filter cigarettes are considered the "female version". Not as bad, but you'd never openly advice a woman to start doing rollies, whilst it's the first thing you advertise to a fellow male. :P

So is that why, before indulging into the business of smoking a cigarette, people announce that they're "going for a fag"? :wsg

Are you a smoker Sigurd? I did myself for 16 years.
If you do smoke I fully understand how you must defend the position. Addiction makes anyone commit to things that soberness might otherwise not support.
Whether they are rolled or filtered I still consider them to be a liberal pursuit. I know there have been some very masculine examples who have indulged, but even the best of men have been fooled by the agenda.

Smoking, alcohol, metrosexual fashion are trends used to control the population. If a person can't give up his smoking or alcohol addiction, he probably can't give up other useless things either. A real man is one that can control himself. All the money going on trendy clothes and cigarettes could be added and used to support a child.

As I stated, I see where you are coming from on Filter Cigarettes, to some extent --- but I will pose the question again: What is feminine or even homo-erotic about rolling your own?

Observe your surroundings as to smokers (well, it at least works over here in Europe, where rollup-smokers abound) and you will soon find that it tends to be the more masculine men who tend to smoke roll-ups out of "conviction" rather than "necessity".

My stepfather rolled when he smoked, my uncle rolls, I roll myself, my grandfather used to largely roll when he was a smoker, my other uncle conveniently alternated between the practices (pre-made rather than self-rolled were more useful at work being a manual labourer) ... my mother and my aunt (during the times of their smoking) never rolled routinely, just occasionally when someone of rolling experience was in the vicinity.

I make a point of rolling with style, this includes gathering with friends to smoke a pipe; and as far as cigarette tobacco is concerned, usually means the use of a neat leather tobacco pouch, a proper tobacco pouch being the only accessory I feel a man should have. :P


Addiction makes anyone commit to things that soberness might otherwise not support.

I have before stopped to smoke, and my views upon the whole matter of smoking did not change. Nor were they much different before I first started to smoke.


Whether they are rolled or filtered I still consider them to be a liberal pursuit. I know there have been some very masculine examples who have indulged, but even the best of men have been fooled by the agenda.

Smoking, whether in the form of cigars, pipes, cigarillos or cigarettes reaches back way longer than the advent of liberal-left viewpoints.

Many novels and accounts of contemorary life dating back to the 19th century feature cigarette smokers prominently, though their "smoking room" was usually occupied by males alone to the exclusion of females, and usually the habit was practiced by those of considerable social standing.

And, yes, it included self-rolled and filter-less pre-rolled cigarettes, too. ;)

Part of this 'agenda' is to prohibite Cannabis, not because it is an evil drug, but because America wanted to defend its world leader position of cotton production. This is actually the only reason why the whole plant, also the THC free sorts, were prohibited after WWII.
Smoking is a really old human habit, there are pipes dating back to the 15th Century B.C., and cigarettes are mentioned already 1492 by Columbus. You dont want to say that 3500 years ago someone created a 'gay lefty agenda', do you? :P ;)

Masculine men are exactly who the conspirators use to legitimize this poison. Once you make it popular with men, females will soon follow.

Is it surprising that the French popularized the cigarette back in the 1830s? But it did not immediately take in Europe or in America. At that time cigarettes became very popular with the turks as well as other muslim countries.
I will admit that while cigarettes at one time were associated with the masculine, somewhere along the way they were transformed into a vice that seemed catered to the jaded individual.
It was the bohemians of the 1890s that adopted the cigarette as their own. Individuals such as Oscar Wilde, a smoker as well as an unrepentant fag, who thought waving a cigarette around would give their conversation some kind of flourish, much in the same way young men of today think that it compliments their masculinity.

The conspirators have always wanted to destroy our integrity as well as our physical health. With cigarettes they accomplish both. They knew even back then that cigarettes were deadly. There were many oriental countries who banned tobacco on pain of death. Ironic, really.

Here are some interesting historical facts :

1527:- Tobacco recorded as addictive by Bartolomé de Las Casas, who had observed its hazardous effects on the native Americans.

1600:- Sir Walter Raleigh persuades Queen Elizabeth to try smoking.(early attempt to masculinize woman?)

1805-1807:- CERIOLI isolates nicotine, the "essential oil" or "essence of tobacco"

1809:- Louis Nicolas Vanquelin isolates nicotine from tobacco smoke.

1861-1865:- Tobacco is given with rations to Union and Confederate soldiers during the Civil War, and many Northerners are introduced to tobacco this way. During Sherman's march, Union soldiers raided warehouses in search of the mild, sweet "bright" tobacco of the South. Bright tobacco becomes the rage in the North and eventually replaces the heavier Turkish tobacco in cigarettes.

1875:- Allen & Ginter cigarette brands, Richmond Straight Cut No. 1 and Pet, begin using picture cards to stiffen the pack and protect the cigarettes. The cards, with photos of actresses, baseball players, Indian Chiefs, and boxers are enormously successful and represent the first modern promotion scheme for a manufactured product.
(first attempt to lure children?)

1898:- Tennessee Supreme Court upholds a total ban on cigarettes, ruling they are "not legitimate articles of commerce, being wholly noxious and deleterious to health. Their use is always harmful."

1900:- Washington, Iowa, Tennessee and North Dakota outlaw the sale of cigarettes.

1901:- Strong anti-cigarette activity now exists in 43 of the 45 states.

1902 - Marlboro is one of the earliest woman's cigarette, featuring a red tip to hide lipstick marks. It does not catch on with the public.

1909:- Baseball great Honus Wagner orders American Tobacco Company take his picture off their Sweet Caporal cigarette packs, fearing it will lead children to smoke. The resulting shortage makes the Honus Wagner card the most valuable baseball card of all time, currently worth close to $500,000.

1924:- Philip Morris re-introduces Marlboro with the slogan "Mild as May," targeting "decent, respectable" women. "Has smoking any more to do with a woman's morals than has the color of her hair?" the advertisement reads. "Marlboros now ride in so many limousines, attend so many bridge parties, and repose in so many handbags."

1927:- A sensation is created when George Washington Hill blatantly aims Lucky Strike advertising campaign at women, urging them to "reach for a Lucky instead of a sweet." Smoking initiation rates among adolescent females triple between 1925-1935, and Lucky Strike captures 38% of the American market.

1963:- Marlboro:- dispenses with tattooed sailors and athletes as the Marlboro Man and settles on the exclusive use of cowboys.
(The broke back type?)

I like masculine men who make me feel comfortable and show me that they could (and would) defend me anytime and everywhere. ;) Honestly, men are the physically stronger gender and they shouldn´t be ashamed ot it. Feminists and "gender mainstreamers" make them feel guilty for their boyish behaviour right up from the cradle nowadays, it´s simply disgusting. :thumbdown Being a real man isn´t discriminating torwards females in any way, don´t let yourself implant such wrong thoughts into your mind dear male faction! :P

Anyway, is there any valuable defintion about what "metrosexualism" is? I´ve never seen one. Is it David Beckham-style? Is "gayish" behaviour metrosexualism? What is it? And more importantly, how can men shake off this dorky trend?

Heterosexually homosexual?
Masculine-feminine?
A manly sissy?

That’s a good question.
I'm sure that not even a metro-sexual could tell you. If one ever did try it would probably go a little something like this:

“I don’t have anything against gays, it’s just not my personal preference. I know I am sometimes mistaken for one, but I assure you, I am not.”

I have heard this one an uncountable number of times. It is the closet homophobe’s favorite escape/excuse. Most metro-sexual men are homophobes underneath those delicate exteriors.

:lmao :puke


Is for example a man wearing a bag, bright colored clothes, or using perfume metrosexual? Is metrosexual a politically correct and trendy word for 'gay'?

I don't think so, a lot of 'metrosexuals' are straight (the guy above is a serial womanizer... somehow) and tend to see themselves as ladies' men (in more ways than one I guess :D) I would say it's men who spend a lot of time with grooming, fashion, dressing up, following the latest styles/haircuts etc.

I agree that it's a 'sign of degeneration' but I wouldn't say that it's an 'invention to destroy the white race', there have been 'dandys' around europe for a long time, eg in the French (where else...) court. Beau Brummel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beau_Brummell) is a famous English example. But it's right to say there is a certain agenda in 'equalising' male/female roles which involves making men more feminine and vice versa which is strong in modern times.

I also remember reading about a certain mullato footballer (who is dating an English woman who recently polled #1 in FHM's most desirable women...) who 'allegedly' walked into a club and threw down a wad of cash offering it to another man to suck him off, the source claiming 'these people make so much money they just don't care'. Similar stories could be found... I would say, it's also linked to excessive wealth/urban social habits, for instance the dandys and the camp courtisans always inhabited a 'wealthy playboy world' above the lower classes (who were comprised of manly, clint eastwood-esque frontersmen ;)). So I would say it's also related to excessive wealth/luxury and over-domestication.



For the conspirators to succeed in turning men into fairies they knew it could only work if they turned the women into dykes at the same time.
One of the first ways they induced males to behave effeminate was with the cigarette.

I think you're sort of right, at the dawn of the 1900's it was considered unrefined for women to smoke, and effeminate for men to smoke cigarettes (as opposed to pipes, cigars, or chewing tobacco - which were acceptably manly ;)).
Famously, Edward Bernays made cigarrettes 'cool' for women by linking them to the women's rights movement of the age by having female smokers 'torches for freedom' on women's lib. marches, this is considered the 'birth' of modern PR. (if you want to fuel you conspiracies, Bernays was related to Freud, who was of course a Jew :D. But I think he was just doing it for the money myself. He also claimed one of his books was the centerpiece of Goebell's propaganda library, for instance).

Of course the cigarrette industry also made them more appealing to men by paying moviestars, james dean types, 'malbrough man' and the like. But I don't think smoking cigarrettes makes men into metros (I don't think it's a good thing either, of course), it just made cigarrettes seem acceptabley 'manly' by associating them with the above. If I think of a bunch of men smoking cigs. and boozing in a pub, that's a very macho environment, populated by macho men like this guy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gP4xuPbZ4Ic). :D

Another branch of metrosexuals in my opinion is the emo culture.

Something is just not right about them.

Metrosexuals like to show off their body but in a strange way. I wouldn't call it feminized way, because real feminine women don't dress like this either. But certainly not something befitting to their gender.

Though Vikings are known to use make-up they most likely were not metro-sexuals. Also a many lot of them put an emphasis on their dresses and had obviously some vanity about it.

I don't think it is the dress alone, it is their any behavior which is repulsive.
Male attributes like combatreadyness, courage, independant thinking, following an aim etc is not found there.

It's wishy-washy emo-thinking, not hurting anyone, emulating women and so on.

Obviously they are successful among the women-folk. But most likely they the other side of a fitting coin. promiscuitive city women might fit the picture.

A weaker population of weak individuals is always more easily controlled.

Emasculation along with metrosexuality is the norm now of repressing men's natural instinct of rebellion against that which is foreign or alien to them for the natural instinct of men is to divide and conquer in competition somthing of which this society of ours finds no longer useful as a skill in having but instead a disruptive force to the present controlled sedation of the masses.

The feminists of course like metrosexuals because these male oddities fill up the ranks of male drones that will do anything in submission to appease the modern feminist woman.

The masculine war is just one part of a Omnigenous attack on our cultural and natural instincts.
This of course has been the case since probably the creation of television or just mass public communications?
None the less the constant imagery of a more stylish and softer male has been gradually sold to the public in peace meal phases creating this ever popular unmanly but not quite homosexual shadow of a male.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
(side note)
The Norse throughout History up until recent, strongly believed and enforced the harsh accusation of not being of manly demeanor; not acting like a real man in their terms was the worst crime to be accused of!

This is apparently and sadly is just one point in this war on our races existence, and the way to go about that is by erasing a peoples memories of what kind of people they used to be and still should be!

What this does is act as an advertisement to young men who might be "confused" as to whether they wish to be straight or gay. If they see manly individuals dressing gay and even affecting trendily effeminate gestures then this will certainly give them the impression that homosexuality is okay. It never occurs to them for a second as to why the majority of non-gay metro-sexuals never have actual gay sex. As I mentioned in the previous post I feel that most metro-sexual men are homophobic underneath. Nobody from their world seems capable of understanding the enormous hypocrisy of this.

Each new genereation of men is more effeminate because leftists and feminists have inflitrated the education and schools and they won't let boys be boys. And they don't like strong men.


The feminists of course like metrosexuals because these male oddities fill up the ranks of male drones that will do anything in submission to appease the modern feminist woman.

This is exactly what it's about. It is not an issue of straight or gay but an issue of masculine or feminine men. There are many men who love men who are infintely more masculine than the modern straight metrosexual.

The gay lifestyle was created to gain control over men in several ways: some "gay" men who would otherwise be masculine are tricked to become feminine because they think that's the way they should be. More importantly; maculine men who have an urge to be intimate with men does not act upon it because he believes it would make him gay. A great danger towards the curernt order of the world and towards the feminists is masculine men who have sex with other masculine men. Women recognise this, because she can't manipulate him on his sexual needs like women do now and control him.

We need to bring back the old and true european way of heroic warrior love between men like for example in Sparta. Otherwise we get the isolation which makes them weak, unable to bond with other men on a deeper level and susceptible to feminine influence under the curse of family life. Metrosexuality would not be possible wihout first suppresing men's need of intimacy with other men.

An analogy to horses: Stallions bond naturally and becomes extremely difficult to control. Therefore some instead pair male and female horses, and in effect force them to become a couple which makes the stallions docile.

In the UK the youth seem to be divided into two groups.

Hoodrats,that wear hooded fleece jackets,with white training shoes and tracksuit bottoms.They usually have a bag of chips in one hand and a can of coke in the other....are scrawny little specimens which i would gladly send to work in a lead mine.

Then there are the metrosexuals,with their obligatory little bottle of water in hand,manbag on their shoulder,"distressed" haircut,cargo pants and flip flops (even in sub zero tempratures) and mobile phone or ipod.This group i would send to work in a salt mine.

Metrosexual to me is a male who obsesses with his body image and looks in the mirror often. Men are known to be a bit "sloppier" than women when it comes with appearance, it's not common for example for a guy to shave his entire body hair or get a pedicure (unless he has really bad nails or something...)

This is kind of the image I have in my head when I think metrosexual:

http://www.menswearstyle.co.uk/content/blogs/ef82e04b-b844-418b-8355-6b1feee7abec_blog_ln_.jpg

Wearing a bag or cologne or bright colors is not necessarily a sign of being metrosexual though... I think it depends on the type and context.

This for example is not necessarily metrosexual:

http://m1.image009.com/productimage/J/JA/JA0153/JA0153-a.jpg

But this screams metrosexual to me:

http://tomandlorenzo.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Harry-Style-Jimmy-Kimmel-Live-TV-Style-Tom-Ford-Bag-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-2.jpg

According to Wikipedia, the label "Metro-Sexual" showed up in year 1994,
and at that time I had finished school and apprenticeship already.

This label is something new to me.




Metrosexual is a portmanteau of metropolitan and sexual, coined in 1994
describing a man (especially one living in an urban, post-industrial, capitalist 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.
...
In the Eighties he was only to be found inside fashion magazines such as GQ.
In the Nineties, he's everywhere and he's going shopping.
...
However, it was not until the early 2000s when Simpson returned to the subject
that the term became globally popular.
In 2002, Salon.com published an article by Simpson,
which described David Beckham as "the biggest metrosexual in Britain"
and offered this updated definition:

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 are.

I personally am not a young man anymore and never had money to spend
for accessories.

On sommer days such men might be more visible because of clothing.
The summer period in Northern Europe is only a short time frame.
It actually is not worth it here to hoard a large amount of different clothes,
except for winter and autumn clothing.
Therefore it is kind of expectable, that people here are clothed wrongly during
periods of dry and warm weather; and that they do surf the current fashion wave
more often, because of throwing away the summer clothing each autumn.

Wearing some kind of bag is common for pupils and clerks heading to their job's places.


Young attractive men of course provide an illusion of wealth,
that might be admired by women.

next thing people will be saying is that a man who likes to keep in shape is metro-sexual!!, whats wrong with wanting to have a nice hair cut, good fit healthy body and to dress nice?
