~Famed Psychologist Carl Gustav Jung believed that for any person to trully be complete, They have to have a sort of entertwined marriage, between the Animus, the female side within a man, and the Anima, the male side within a female... We still reside in a very male-oriented society in the West, However, This belief is and has been, pervasive throughout cultures and historic societies world wide since the dawn of time, The ying-yang, (which most people solely attribute to a part of good in evil, and evil in good), touches upon this, Hinduism (I forget the phrase "Siva shakti shakta" "Male without the female is dead")...Whether it be the emotional side (female) of oneself melded with the physical side (male), or the Spirit (Male) conjoined with Matter (Female)-(see birth goddesses in the Eastern philosophies/Gnosticism)...
It's sad that we are still very wary of this in the West (and on a football forum), and most of us still have a long way to go spiritually for completeness... In the end, ya gotta respect the guys who are mature and enlightened enough to do this once a year (once a year is good enough, 2 X a year is pushing it even for me)...
I'm bigger than most, but still nowhere near being in the 6 and a half foot range in height and weighing around 300 lbs... IF one actually has the size of an NFL linebacker, I agree, One can afford to be spiritually complete without people messing with you... And I agree again, That I wouldn't be caught dead wearing pink as well, and therefore must stick to Intellectual Ideals wihout myself having the b%lls to weigh the axiom on the pulse in reality of note
: Also, Pink is an ugly-#ss color as it is, and Who-The-H wears arm-bands/ribbons in this day and age, the Vietnam War has ended, and so now you're just looking for ANY
thing to protest...
