Question

I'm beginning to get an understanding on this.

But... if you don't live in the city, but yet are a totally self absorbed, make-up wearin', narcisstic, fashionista type that wants to dress like a manwomen, and you live way out in the sticks - you are then a Ruralsexual?

I'm no expert, but I believe that conjures up a whole different visual.

I think beards need to be trimmed to no more than 1/4" to be truly metro, that's what the Queer Eye for the Straight Guys said anyhow, but you make pretty "fancy" beer so maybe that evens things out I think...maybe.

I wish riding season would return so we could talk about...I don't know...riding? These musical, metro, etc. threads are beginning to freak me out a bit.

In reality we're all more like the Man/Bear/Pig aren't we???

I find it quite difficult to use my Thruxton's handle bar side mirrors to put on eye shadow or apply some lip gloss.

I doubt it: even the mods had a hard edged masculinity about them. And they wouldn't have tolerated "nancy boys"

They didn't always lose to the rockers you know
