You consider retro sexual to be the anti David Beckham

can be either male or female. A person who chooses to live a retro lifestyle. Someone who lives life with their mindset in the 80s or 90s time period. Wears retro fashion in a modern way, listens to electronica and has a passion for old video games and listens to music which can relate to the sounds of those of the 80s or 90s. Someone who lives the present in a yearning for the immediate past.

The definition:
Retrosexual is the opposite word for metrosexual, so it shouldn't apply to women. It refers to the original meaning of the male role, although it's philosophy should be analyzed and embraced by everyone, including women.
The phylosophy:
The appearance of a person is irrelevant, because if we analyze ourselves and everyone else, our physical body is made of skin, blood and bones. If we look at a room full of people through x-ray, we only see a room full of skulls and bones - it means, we are all the same and the physical difference between normally developed people is insignificant. Analyze this deeply and you will agree that the appearance shouldn't be as important as it is to the metrosexuals. I admit being in favour of the retrosexuals in it's understandings about people's appearance.
If David Beckham would've born with a face of another, even a greater football player i.e. Ryan Giggs (I think he's retrosexual, but not an ugly person at all), would he be as popular and well tolerated and admired person?! No, but he's deeper conscious inside the body, would've been the same as it is now. This is why tolerating/not tolerating people based on their looks is foolish and absurd.
The greatest victim of the metrosexual views and narcissism is Michael Jackson. Think about the global danger of these views! Awful. It shouldn't be encouraged in any way. (Sry, if my English isn't correct!)

A male who is the epitome of polar opposite of a metrosexual. One who embraces, trucks, flannel, thinks Eddie Bauer is Haute Cotour, member of the NRA, thinks Bush is SMRT, and believes Capitalism is the American Way. Doesnt know his way around a kitchen other than to find a refridgerator, and a microwave. The slogan "If you cant NUKE it, its not worth eating" is the mantra of the day.Dont forget a can opener to eat his Chef Boyardee Ravioli out of the can. MIGHT remember to bring his wife flowers on their anniversary or her birthday. Probably had 1- 2 kids, wife stays at home, she cooks, he fixes the house. A testosterone filled male void of human emotion, except when they try to pry the gun from his cold, dead, hands. Choice of music is 80's hair bands, and classic 80's pop music, as long as it's not too prissy.

I consider my office mate a retrosexual!
