Mark Simpson, father of the metrosexual, and all round good egg has talked about the metrosexual going forward into the new decade in his latest blog post. He takes issue with those who suggest that the metrosexual has ‘peaked’. It’s certainly true that the metrosexual doesn’t seem to be as ‘of the moment’ as it did. A few backs, my then hometown of Sheffield had a night at The Forum called Metrosexual but I’m not sure it would be the sort of name places would go for now (am I wrong?). Simpson argues that ‘Metrosexuality, men’s passionate, epoch-making desire to be desired, is a long, long way from peaking.’ His blog (as ever) is worth a read. The observation of orange Geordie’s is a good one and will sound familiar for anyone who’s been on the scene in the NE. Check out his blog here.
