Just...no.

Seeing a guy I was attracted to wearing a romper would be a definite buzzkill.

Oh please! I bet you if all the celebrities, sport athletes, etc started wearing rompers surely but slowly everyone will accept them. I remembering wearing pink was a big no no for guys and now guys are rocking "salmon". LOL. I remember skinny jeans was for chicks and gay dudes and now even thugs are rocking skinny jeans. LOL. And it goes on and on....

Pink and skinny jeans are still a big no-no for guys AFAIC. It also doesn't help that I live across the state line from one of America's major hipster dumping grounds!!

It's time men have a greater fashion freedom. Pink, skinny jeans, as well as shorter shorts, are not totally accepted yet for males, but are making a comeback and are definitely more accepted more than they were 10 years ago. Remember, men had a greater fashion freedom before the early 1990s. It looks like it is slowly returning to that point.
That being said, I am not a fan of the romper for men or women. If the shorts and shirts looked the same, but were 2 separate articles of clothing, then that would be okay. And the see through lace shorts and shirts for men that someone posted a link to earlier in this thread, I hope that was someone's joke.

Seriously, people actually wear this hideosity in public? Tell me it's just a concept and not an actual?

The only places remotely appropriate for rompers are if you're on the rowing team or as sleepwear at home. That's it.
Its pretty universally derided, although I think that it was conceived somewhat seriously. I've never seen one in real life.
