Real Men Return

I heard Rush Limbaugh talk about this the other day and wondered what it was he was referring to. Rush claims he is one of the first of the new “übersexuals”. I hate to disillusion Rush but I was there first. I’ve been one for fifty-six years and was never tempted to join the “metrosexuals”, those sensitive, smooth-complexioned boys. Naw! I’m as “über” as they get. The only thing I dislike about the new monicker is some doofus dared to include George Clooney and Bill Clinton in the club. That will not do.

Any of you ladies out there who crave a real man need look no further. Just send me a private e-mail and I’ll put you on the list. Try to be patient though. Us real men are in short supply nowadays ....

Metrosexual Man Bows To Red-Blooded Übersexuals
(GUARDIAN - UK)

It’s good news for traditional American men. The metrosexual is dead: long live the übersexual. After dominating US style and fashion for several years, the ideal of the modern male as someone who cared about fashion and skin care as much as a woman did is about to be swept aside by a return to old-fashioned, masculine values: fine wines, cigars and red-blooded heterosexuality.

‘Ubersexuals are confident, masculine and stylish, and committed to uncompromising quality in all areas of life,’ said Marian Salzman, co-author of a new book, The Future of Men. Salzman, a vice-president of the global advertising firm JWT, is the trend-spotter who first promoted the rise of the metrosexual, a term lauded and derided in equal measure, as it described a new sort of man who aped women’s tastes.

Now, however, maleness has hit back, she says. While metrosexuals were obsessed with self-image and lifestyle, the übersexual is politically aware and passionate about real world causes. The metrosexual has women who are his best friends, while the übersexual respects women but retains men as his closest confidants. The metrosexual grooms his hair: the übersexual grooms his mind. The metrosexual reads Vogue and Cosmo, the übersexual the Economist and the New Yorker.

Celebrity metrosexuals include Jude Law, Orlando Bloom and David Beckham, whose good looks can be seen as slightly womanly. Their übersexual counterparts include George Clooney, Donald Trump, Pierce Brosnan and Bill Clinton, who are fashionable and wear tasteful clothes, but are unashamedly masculine, not least in their often complicated and very heterosexual lifestyles. Salzman’s book proclaims the world’s leading übersexual as the rock star and anti-poverty campaigner Bono.

But all this is unlikely to provide much comfort for the ordinary man, who is now being told to dump his feminine side and try to become an alpha male. ‘Ubersexuals are the most attractive and compelling men of their generations. They are confident, masculine and stylish,’ she said.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
