    I scored 11, and I think it's a pretty dumb term, given that it's just a long-winded way of saying 'guy that looks after himself' or, at the extreme end, 'narcissist'. The questions on the quiz were pretty arbitrary, I thought. If I recall, the journalist who coined the term has since written a second article apologizing for it. As he well should... Â [​IMG]

    An amusing article: A Tribute to Real Men I really hate the term "metrosexual." The term "dandy" is enough.

    I'm a big fan of Maddox - he tells it like it is. And he's a pirate, and everything, which is cool.

    Yes, many people seem to be overly "politically correct" these days, trying too hard to sugarcoat things. It gets annoying. ESPN(I think Page 2) had an article some time back on what politically correct football scores would be like: The New York large people defeated the Green Bay meat industry workers... A friend sent me this link recently: http://ct.wacc.cc/DumbingDown.htm

    I did the quiz twice, and got a 20 and then a 21, which I guess means that I am a borderline metrosexual.

    On the otherhand, I also took the "Stud or Chump" quiz and came out a real stud. So apparently, I am a studly metrosexual. Hey, I'm Johnsmith's idol.

    www.seanbaby.com Hasn't been updated in forever, but there's enough to keep you going for a while. Here's a particularly humerous one: http://www.seanbaby.com/news/terrorism.htm By the way: scored an 8 of metrosexuality.

    Oh God -

    I scored a 28. Guess it's time to go hunting or something.

    My wife will definitely laugh at me for this one.

    Whew... Only a 20, and I've worn nail polish.. I would have though for sure that one would have added like 50 points.

    I didn't know that other people read Rooshlog, I met that guy in DC last month, we have mutual friends.

    I went to my bowling league last night and was thinking that I should get me some negative points on this quiz for that. How many metrosexuals have ever been named bowler of the week like I was for the 205 game I had last time..
