Now there's some new game in town, and this is some earth friendly, hot unisex labeling called ecosexual. In Wired magazine the definition is as follows: "Ecosexual ~ n. A person who's into hybrid cars, low-energy light bulbs, and recycling." (Bland stereotyping but enticing non-the-less.) And at the Not Just Pretty Blog they put it in sentence form to clear up the meaning~ “I would love to date an ecosexual person so we can go to the farmers market together.” (Sounds Rockin', let's go!)
Freelance writer Mark Peters gives the best eco-explanation "Ecosexual: If the word “metrosexual” makes you want to remove your own eyeballs with a spork, you’d better hide the silverware. Ecosexuals, apparently, are hip young urbanites who care about recycling as much as hair products. Instead of man-hands and eating peas one at a time, their deal-breakers are non-recyclers and anti-eco-deodorant. Did the world really need another smarmy buzzword? Eco-kill me now".
But the Vancouver Sun says "Ecosexual is the new political 'cool'."
I think they are right. ;)
Oh my gawd - so I realize I actually for the first time in my life now fit quite neatly into a label. My name is Leslie and I am an Ecosexual.
