Short for 'metroconservative', i.e. a person of conservative worldview living in a city.

Metrocons typically derive their worldview from some sort of intellectual reasoning, as opposed to soaking up the worldview from base emotions, reflexes and socializing with like-minded people, like hardcore people of other political orientations typically do.

This makes them typically much more tolerant than other conservatives are, so metrocons are often viewed by hardcore conservatives as 'fake' or 'meek' or not genuine, somewhat similar to RINOs (Republican In Name Only), with an obvious difference, though: RINOs can be rural or metropolitan.

In short, RINOs are moderate left-liberals with some conservative tendencies, while metrocons are city intellectuals who for some reason decided to value something from conservative worldview. One notable British metrocon is Theodore Dalrymple. In US, they are much more numerous, with Jonah Goldberg and Mark Steyn being among the most prominent.
You're a metrocon, because you don't hate gays.
