It seems to be confined to the US. In most other countries, all men (gay or straight) are expected to take care of themselves by using good hygene, looking good when going out, wearing cologne, wearing well-fitting clothing, etc. Here, if I tell someone I take more than 10 minutes to get ready (including time taken to take a shower, dress up, etc) people think I'm gay. And God forbid if you actually "admit" you iron your office clothes! Some people's jaws drop. Honestly!
