In the spirit of C. S. Lewis’ classic The Abolition of Man becoming available online, I pass along this story:
Macho man is an endangered species…fashion industry insiders say.
A study along these lines led by French marketing and style consultants Nelly Rodi was unveiled to Fashion Group International during a seminar Tuesday on future strategy for the fashion industry in Europe.
Asks Pierre Francois Le Louet, the agency’s managing director, “We are watching the birth of a hybrid man. … Why not put on a pink-flowered shirt and try out a partner-swapping club?”
We’re waiting for confirmation whether the study actually examined any men outside the borders of France.
