My mind always wanders when I think about what teams fans are throwing out on the field. Dildos? Yes, you heard that right. It’s a “thing”. As shocking as it sounds, it’s something quite a few fans around the world have done and it doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.
I remember the first time I ever heard about it. I was absolutely speechless. Who in their right mind would think of this?! I thought it was some sort of wild imagination of the senders. How could people be so bold enough to get away with something so outrageous?
But then I read more about and I realised that there is an important reason for doing this – to show their displeasure with the ongoing events. Supporters of a certain team want their opinion to be heard. On many occasions, they have felt unheard, or their feelings and opinions have been put aside. And couldn’t they use dildos as a median of communication with the teams, their leaders and so on?
That being said, I understand why they opt for this unusual approach. But on the other hand, I don’t support this behaviour since there are other ways to express their dissatisfaction. I think it’s a bummer that some people resort to tossing dildos as they feel they would need to get their message out. I mean, I get it, Penis Rings I really do, but it’s just not an appropriate messaging tool.
Although I am not a fan of this behaviour, I still do respect the fact that it is within these people’s rights to choose and express the way they really feel. It’s a form of self-expression in a way. And in the end, it is up to the individual fans to decide.
Furthermore, I think that in some ways, this method of communication can work better than a traditional approach. I mean, no one wants to listen to an angry mob, right? So, this can be effective given the right circumstances, as long as the message is clear.
It’s a tricky situation to be in, and I don’t think there is a straightforward answer. What do you think teams fans should do when they feel unheard?
