Men becoming increasingly effeminate...? hmmm

I was reading The Independent online (UK) a moment ago and I saw this report:

"Men are now paying more attention to themselves and fashion," Dariga Nazarbayeva, 45, told a women's congress. "They have started going to beauty parlours and hair salons a lot more often. They have started doing manicure. "Looking at the appearance of contemporary young men, one may notice how much their notions of masculinity have changed, how this masculinity is sometimes being replaced by femininity." But, she added to the 400 women and the 10 or so men at the conference: "One cannot help but notice that the world of men has become increasingly effeminate... I don't know if we can see this as our gender's victory."
Hurmmm...she may just be right there. Alot of handsome boys too these days. Effeminate may be perceived as a very provocative word...I suppose they have another term for it...metrosexual...I think...or something like thatlah....They are all around us hehe. What happen to the unkemp, no make up, foul BO types? Are they still around or have become endangered species too? hahaha
