The Spornosexuals

Apparently, that's the new term for what used to be metrosexual, which is the old term for preening, self-centered party boy, too chickenshit to come out of the closet. 

Britain's Telegraph reports:
Not everyone is such a fan of the look or what they think it represents. The Telegraph columnist Tim Stanley, for example, claims the trend marks an “evolutionary step backwards” for men. “The spornosexual is really only interested in how they look to themselves – it is narcissistic. By toning and perfuming and recording every ripple with Facebook selfies, they’ve converted their bodies into their own masturbatory aids.”

An article in Vice earlier this year, published before Mark Simpson came up with the spornosexual label, read along the same kind of lines. In a piece headlined "How Sad Young Douchebags Took Over Modern Britain," the journalist Clive Martin wrote: “It seems to me that, in a kamikaze attempt to assert their masculinity, our young man of today has repackaged himself as an erection in a vest. . . . They’re the sad, lost children of the metrosexuals and the miners.”

This is a good example of an abundance of wealth combined with a lack of common sense. Coming to a town near you, if it isn't there already!
