Complaint:

Mr Mark Simpson of Richmond complained that an article about the futurologist Marian Salzman was inaccurate when it stated that she “invented” the term ‘metrosexual’.

Resolution:

‘The term “metrosexual” was invented by Mark Simpson, a journalist, and not by Marian Salzman, as we asserted in Stella on January 7 because of an editing error. Apologies.’
