Pink with rage
That’s right. PINK
I saw some women wearing these on the Bear’s Game yesterday and my boyfriend completely failed to talk me down. (to borrow a phrase from Rachel Maddow (crush!!) )
Why the FUCK are there pink football jerseys? Why?
I mean, I know why, girls like pink right? Lets give them some pink footbally stuff so they can advertise their vagina at the same time they advertise their sports fandom. Pink jersey’s are great they say “I like football enough to let you explain it to me and to know who Devon Hester is, but y’know, not so much that I’m a guy, or enough to wear icky dark blue!”
Mr. I failed to talk me down by pointing out that the women wearing these pink jerseys were capable of making decisions about what they wear. And he is correct. I respect the right of women to wear pink if they so choose. Though I doubt I would ever be friends with the type of woman who thinks a football jersey is just so much better if it comes in pink.
I don’t know why this riles me up so much. I guess it wouldn’t bother me if Bear’s jerseys also came in black, purple, green and whatever other color one might find more flattering than blue and orange. It’s the pandering to “vagina- americans” that irks me.
And now you may ask yourself, why is Shinobi posting about pink football jerseys on the eve of the most important election to take place so far in her lifetime? I will anticipate this and tell you that I just can’t think about it anymore. I’m getting up at 5:30 tomorrow to go vote and until tomorrow evening I am going to try to live in the moment and find other more trivial things to get riled about.
