This post has stuff about religion and LGBT. My perspective has changed
God created man and woman to be different. If he wanted them to be the same he would have made them that way. And yet in many cultures around the world there is an increasing trend toward the effeminate among males. Lately it’s been deemed “metrosexual,” or just “metro” for short.
As evidence of the trend the word has even been put in the dictionary. Webster’s and Word Spy characterize metrosexual as an urban male with a strong aesthetic sense and inordinate interest in appearance and style
who is not afraid to embrace his feminine side.
Stuart Scott, an Associate Professor of Biblical Counseling wrote the following in a 2004 article for the Journal for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood:
On a larger scale, society as a whole has experienced a great and unfortunate loss of the significance of gender. So much so that it is very acceptable in today’s culture even to deny one’s gender and try to switch to the other.
And in fact, the transgender population is growing faster than you might think according to Joanne Herman, a transgendered individual, author, and spokeswoman for the LGBT community.
Even mainstream music is catching on to this fact. In his song I’m still a guy, Brad Paisley reiterates the sad fact:
These days there’s dudes gettin’ facials
Manicured, waxed and botoxed
With deep spray-on tans and creamy lotiony hands
You can’t grip a tackle box
Yeah, with all of these men linin’ up to get neutered
It’s hip now to be feminized
I don’t highlight my hair
I’ve still got a pair
Yeah honey, I’m still a guy
