While it shouldn't be the only factor in making this weird list, which will not be accurate on any accounts, but fun nontheless, is that I would think the cities that are more renowned for their shopping and are top 10 shopping cities, would just have more of a feminine male population due to a larger shopping options,etc. Also big tourist destinations that have a lot of spas and resorts.

Therefore(not in any order) NYC, LA, Miami, Atlanta, San Francisco, Dallas, Chicago, etc would have a hand up here, although Chicago has a working class vibe, and Dallas is still in Texas, so both of those factors take away from it.

Anyways your list is weird, I would place Miami and Atlanta MUCH higher, have no idea how Houston and San Antonio made it so high. And how is San Francisco not in the top 3, if not number 1, gay males are still males, so gay or not, most would have feminine qualities.

Another thing is that these so called progressive environmental-friendly cities, like Portland, and sort of Seattle and Denver, should be higher as liberals and progressive people are more likely to be feminine than more conservative males.

Anways enough stereotyping, but all in all towards the top should be , in no order, NYC, SF, LA, Seattle, Portland, SD, Atlanta, and Miami.

He just listed them out. He didn't rank them.

What are the criteria that define feminine qualities within a male? We talking gynecomastia? We talking high counts of estrogen? We talking homosexuality? We talking about the most transexual? What in the world are you talking about?

(I don't see this thread lasting very long)

I'm assuming he means men that do activities associated with women. Not necessarily gay men(could be), but more so metro-sexual men. Men that like to get manicures and pedicures, shopping for nice clothes that are in fashion, getting their hair done, etc.

Yes they are not in a numbered list. I just grabbed large population centers... if I happened to miss any large cities that should be on here let me know... I know there are a few I probably overlooked.

Something along those lines yes. I did not want to use the term metrosexual however as I do not think that is a clear definition at this point. But the gist of it is along that, traditionally feminine traits and activities that are now being held by more and more males, as in opposition to virility/masculinity. Also, not all homosexual men have feminine qualities so its not really sexuality.

No; I think he means cities that have a reputation or being known for things stereotypically considered more feminine than masculine like shopping, musicals and more.

For Example: When you think of Chicago or Houston; you don't think of the World-Class art or the amazing shopping these cities have; you think hard-working, blue collar, industries and more. I guess more macho type jobs or atmosphere.

Whereas with places like LA or Dallas; you think shopping, pretentious, fashionable, glamorous, and more. These things tend to be less masculine and more feminine.

That's my take on it.

NYC is probably one of the most homophobic cities with the exception of transplants and Manhattan.
