Black Men : Men With Manis and Pedis, Is That Cool?


Aug 28, 2015
i think more and more men are cool with getting manis and pedis

i saw where Judge Mathis had his fingernails shining with some clear polish on 'em

likewise ... women are doing more manly things too ... liking taking out the trash ... :)

Yep, I see women mowing the lawn. I be wanting to tell them they better stop before they ruin it for all of us....LOL

But, for real, I don't want to see my man sitting in the salon, soaking his hands and feet.

They seem extreme, huh?

I used to think so too, until I found out there are NBA players doing this too, now. Instead of calling it extreme, I consider it a new trend. Who would have thought men would be walking around with their butts showing one day? When Snoop's doing it and pro ballers are doing it, you can bet teenagers will soon start to emulate the trend.

Who told you they weren't metro?

You might be "metrosexual" if:

1. You just can't walk past a Banana Republic store without making a purchase.

2. You own 20 pairs of shoes, half a dozen pairs of sunglasses, just as many watches and you carry a man-purse.

3. You see a stylist instead of a barber, because barbers don't do highlights.

4. You can make her lamb shanks and risotto for dinner and Eggs Benedict for breakfast... all from scratch.

5. You only wear Calvin Klein boxer-briefs.

6. You shave more than just your face. You also exfoliate and moisturize.

7. You would never, ever own a pickup truck.

8. You can't imagine a day without hair styling products.

9. You'd rather drink wine than beer... but you'll find out what estate and vintage first.

10. Despite being flattered (even proud) that gay guys hit on you, you still find the thought of actually getting intimate with another man truly repulsive.

If he's not gay he's doing a da*n good impersonation of one

My sentiments exactly.

To be honest, I don't like to second guess how people identify themselves. But, I really question this whole "metrosexual" idea.

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck. JMO
