I just learned about the term lumbersexual today, which (without corrupting my brain by actually looking into it) apparently is a Manhattan hipster movement that involves appropriating a working class ethos (though this would be generous in thinking they’re conscious of the absurdly privileged shit they do…and if they are and just don’t care, well shit) and romanticizing…no…fetishizing it.

I’m vaguely recalling a recent Beyonce song that used “chopping on that wood” as some sort of (unappealing) sexual euphemism.
