10 years of Flick Filosopher: anticipating metrosexuality

So it seems that way back in early fall of 1997, I was anticipating the coming culture wars over concepts of male sexuality in my review of the Kevin Kline/Tom Selleck comedy In and Out:

Manliness seems to have gotten redefined — by whom, I haven’t a clue — in the last 25 years or so. Real men don’t read poetry. Real men don’t express emotion. Real men don’t dance. Real men hoot at football games and chug beer and drive loud cars with air fresheners with half-naked chicks on them hanging from the rearview mirror.

(According to Wikipedia, the term “metrosexual didn’t come into regular use until 2003, though it had apparently been coined a decade earlier.)
