“Patrick Bateman is probably the only heterosexual male portrayed in pop culture who gives a shit about how they look,” adds Joshua Headtham, 35, another city worker who recently got into skincare.

Sharing most for that quote. Think about it. The only media depiction of a straight guy who cares about skincare is a psychopathic killer who eats women’s brains.

  1. Fun Fact: A dude came to the spa I work at and asked “is it gay for a man to get a facial?”

    I responded with men have faces too.

    Dudes have skin that had needs just like everyone else who has an epidermis. I think sometimes they forget that.

  2. How is ‘care what you look like’ not the issue?

    I mean, your skin doesn’t need a full regimen of scrubs and moisturisers unless you want to look ‘good’, that is, up to a certain standard that other people in your society expect (and that fashion mags and the cosmetics industry promote). There are probably 4 or 5 billion people on the planet who put skincare last on their priorities list.

  4. Alex Osias But he never actually combs his hair. His grooming is Fonzie magic. Also: not really relevant.

    Jeff Zahari Sure, how about we just concern ourselves with the other 2-3 billion people to whom this may be relevant.

    So, either I am not making myself clear, or people are not reading the article or getting the point, so I am closing this thread down.
