So there’s been a lot of talk on these boards about metrosexual men: men who veer from the traditional male stereotype and use skincare products, get pedicures and generally are more in touch with their femine side. My question for you is, what do you call the female form? What about women who veer from the traditional female stereotype and are more in touch with their male side. Sexuality aside, is there a name for those women?
I have never been a feminine female. I do not wear make up. I don’t wear jewery. I keep my nails short so that I can use my hands to work on my bike or in the garden. I hate shopping. Fashion is stupid and a waste of time and money. At bike meets I hang with the men while the women go antiqueing (they stopped inviting me a long time ago). I don’t like babies (too many free liquids). I like the hardest, nastiest music I can find for training. I don’t “try” to be one of the guys. I know I never can be. I’m somewhere in between, and I’ve always been this way. And no, I’m not a lesbian. It has nothing to do with my sexuality.
Are women like myself looked down upon as metrosexual men are because we do not follow traditional roles?
