Blokes, don’t be afraid of a bit of man grooming
Here’s the thing about men and pedicures. Actually scrap that, here’s the thing about men and massages, moisturiser, Pilates and yoga classes and manscaping, it’s all totally fine. In fact, it should be encouraged.
It doesn’t mean you’re a lay-about with too much time on your hands, it just means you care about your appearance. Plus, it feels great.
So why do men feel the need to vehemently deny that they dabble in a bit of self-care every now and then. And what makes massages more acceptable than pedicures?
Before Abbott was snapped with his trouser legs rolled up, Anthony Mundine’s doppelganger was spotted getting what look suspiciously like a pedicure.
When asked to comment on the photograph, Mundine firstly denied it was him before adding petulantly, “I don’t get pedicures - that’s girl’s stuff.”
But that’s just ridiculous. With all respect to you Mr Mundine, and Mr Abbott the only thing silly about this whole business is refusing to admit that you’re up for a bit of man grooming in the first place.
As has become quite clear, everyone is doing it.
