Male protectiveness is not synonymous with male chauvinism. It should be encouraged and admired as the wonderful (and yes, at least in part specifically male) virtue that it is, not scoffed at or eradicated in the name of equality.
Humans are amazing. It’s amazing that some people live in (extreme) heat all year round and still function as human beings and don’t even seem to be bothered by the heat when my weak Nordic body shuts down at 25°c/77°f. But the reverse is true as well. There’s ice shards flying at my face? Oh a normal Tuesday. Put a southerner here and they’ll freeze before I need to put a jacket on.
I’m white as a sheet of paper because I don’t see the sun for 8months a year, my body has adapted so that I can drink milk even in adulthood, which isn’t something universal as I thought it was during my childhood. I need to take D-vitamins during the winter because there’s no other way for me to get them and if I don’t my bones turn into dust. When it’s summer I eat half a cucumber a day and feel full. When it’s winter I’ll need food almost constantly to keep a moderate body temperature.
Southern people amaze me. No seriously. I can’t fathom wearing sleeves and long pants in temps over 20°c. I’ll boil. Southern people don’t? They just keep on going as if the air wasn’t boiling around them? What. They’ve adapted as much as the northers have.
i know ive said this before but guys just please, imagine captain!yamaguchi. just imagine for a second. he’s come out of his shell and isn’t nearly as shy anymore, and he helps the shy first years come out of their shells too. he works hard and is rly just and fair and nice and likes to make jokes but also gives the best feel-good speeches before matches and everyone is just !!!! about him always. pls. just imagine.
