The Reason For Metrosexuality?

This is an entry from one of the old cynic blogs but I still think it's a good viewpoint – which I have to admit was more or less developed by my other half! 

Anyway, our theory is [do you like the way I've immediately taken an element of 'ownership' on this] thanks to certain social, political, economic and entertainment* trends, Western women now feel a greater level of independence than they've ever felt before.  For possibly the first time in civilisation, a mass number of women no longer believe they are reliant on men to enjoy a full and happy life.  
However, because men have an inherent need to maintain their gender position within society, they are now placing greater importance on their physical, mental and aesthetic 'offering' because they believe this is what is now needed to help them stand out from the crowd and attract a female – thus maintaining [what they believe is] one of their genders fundamental 'roles'.
With the attitudes and roles of men and women slowly but surely merging together, this could best be described as 'The Rise Of Gender Blending'

* This could be everything from the Spice Girls, right through to Sex In The City etc etc
