Kind of the opposite, actually - metrosexuals make me feel all punchy. Lame thing to ban, though.
 
2009-11-13 11:09:16 AM  
They banned popped collars, I can't see any wrong doing here.

TFA:
Melbourne councillor Jennifer Kanis said nightclub owners and managers had the right to refuse entry.

"But I expect refusal to be based on demonstrated antisocial behaviour rather than discriminating against a person or group of people because of the way they dress," Cr Kanis said.


She obviously has no idea how mid to high end nightclubs operate. Refusing entry based on dress and level of attractiveness or standard operating procedure.

I think they must have a different understanding of the word in Australia.

I am hoping that subby doesn't live in a northern state if he is saying wearing chapstick makes you a metrosexual. If you are in a place with winter and you're not using chapstick and moisturizer, the results are probably kind of gross. That isn't an image thing at all, I am seriously in pain without those things.

Replace Chapstick with Carmex, and you've earned yourself a big ol' THIS.

If liking chapstick makes one gay then I'm belting out Broadway tunes. I don't know how people DON'T use chapstick. Sometimes I freebase cherry chapstick.

The word metrosexual clearly has a very different (wrong) meaning in Australia. They're banning Aussie guidos

That's not what I thought metrosexual was ...
 
2009-11-13 01:33:11 PM  
I prefer Blistex myself, but I don't live in the north (plenty dry here though). I'm sure subby meant an exemption for dry/cold climate, and I don't think a night club usually qualifies as a harsh environment (well, atmospherically at least).

By the way, is this close enough to start a guido thread? Please, it's my birthday.

They'd get a lot further if they banned anyone who wears side-ways baseball caps. That's the biggest early warning sign of potential douche-baggery.

Men sporting blond tips or dyed rats' tails will also be turned away.

Perfectly reasonable. Seeing a rats' tail (unless I was somehow forced back in time to 1984 and even then I'm not sure) would certainly make ME violent...

However, none of the items they mention banning are things that would come to my mind if someone mentioned the word 'metrosexual'. That sort of guy I can't see ever getting into a fight what with the risk of getting a tear in his shirt or breaking a nail or mussing his hair and all...

and rentboys are for boys only?....

and here I thought almost 99.9% of male prostitution was for gay sex.... since women can usualy get somebody to shake up with them, usualy free, heck sometimes the uggos get paid.... Do not try and fool me, I have seen the 82nd ave hookers, nobody in their right mind would have sex with them, but clearly folks do.

I have never heard anyone refer to metrosexuals as having a "sports jock mentality".

Australia, where men are men, and sheep are scared.

/And "metrosexual", evidently, has become a euphemism for "raging queen".

marcpen: I think they must have a different understanding of the word in Australia.

Yeah. It sounds like one of those situations like between the US and the UK with cookie, cracker, and bisquit and how people get confused if they say one in one country and the person hearing it is thinking the other.

So from what I gather from the story a metrosexual in Australia is a jock? Also, the article mentions they had on pointy shows. Metrosexuals in the US wear those douchy looking things that are squared off at the front instead of rounded like shoes should be on men. I wonder what their term is for what we call metrosexuals.

Who do I write to in support of a worldwide ban on Guidos?

Ah, I get it. No Affliction shirts.

I'm just glad someone has banned Ed Hardy attire.
 
2009-11-13 01:55:57 PM  
They are banning guidos, not metrosexuals. Metrosexuals have more taste than that.
 
2009-11-13 01:58:34 PM  
No, no, no. The headline describes guidos, not metrosexuals.

Metrosexuals are like Chandler from Friends.

2009-11-13 02:12:27 PM  
yep...affliction and ed hardy is on the banned list for dress code. Club here in the US are starting to do it too.

its basically the D-bag uniform of the day right now. So ya, you want to cut back on the sexual battery, sucker punching, coke in the bathroom incidents at your club banning these knuckleheads will drop those occurrences 80% instantly.

You want to read something funny check this GQ interview with the guy that started..maybe...ed hardy and von dutch.

I can't believe people are still wearing it.

Do they stick a metal fork into an electrical outlet to get their hair to look like that?

I was once turned down at the door of a club because my shoes weren't "nice enough." I think I was wearing sneakers, but they weren't old or ratty or anything. The doorman was polite and apologetic, asking me if I "had a pair of Diesels or something at home" I could wear instead.

He decided to make an exception once he saw the 8 or 10 friends with me (several female) joining me as I started walking away. I would have turned him down on principle, but apparently that was the place all my friends wanted to go to.

/Cool story bro!

That isn't an image thing at all, I am seriously in pain without those things.

The first time I camped in high desert(8,000ft or thereabouts), on an alkali salt flat, I gnored the sage advice of a friend to bring chapstick and moisturiezer, because, fark it, I'm a manly man and don't truck with such things.

I learned several very important lessons that week:

1) no matter how much sucess the Bedioun have had witht he fashion, a brimless headwrap is not ideal head protection in a sunny clime for a good Irish boy

2)Lips CAN and WILL sunburn after a few days in desert sun.
2a) Unless the chapstick you beg from someone SAYS it has an SPF factor, it doesn't and will do nothing to keep #2 from getting worse

3) Sunburned lips HURT-a lot.

4)A combination of dry desert air and Akali gypsum dust is capable of drying your hands to the point where actual cracks through several layers of dermis start appearing, like fault lines across them

5) trying to carry of hold anyobject in your hand after that is a very special kind of agony

sonofslacker: Sad guido misses his friends in guido thread

That's Jeff Reed, professional football player. He is (used to be?) the kicker for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Somewhere, I believe there's a campic of his crotch that he sent to some girl he met.
