It was a proud day for all Wolfsburg Women (WW) fans yesterday as Pernille Harder was voted European Women’s Player of the Year.
I declared my fandom for Pernille on this site’s sister blog travel25years last month, after writing about Wolfsburg Women in my last book XaW Files: Beyond Humanity, and noticing Pernille at the European Championships last year captaining Denmark, before knowing she played for Wolfsburg. She transferred there in December, 2016, a year after XaW Files was published: was she a fan of the book before Wolfsburg? The truth is out there…
Here’s Wolfsburg in their glorious greenYgrey kit:
I am Nothing if not a WW: Wordplay Wonder
While I would have liked to have seen Pernille playing for Wolfsburg Women I now feel like avoiding them, in case they think I’m a weirdo! If they invited me I would go!!
I have nothing much to offer Pernille than fandom, but was thinking that at my time of age, I would declare myself a lesbian man for Pernille and her partner, Magdalena Eriksson.
That got me thinking if there was such a thing: a male lesbian. I did find some references to male lesbians, but they were called just that, in two words.
Lesbian Man Better Term
Being a SPG (self-proclaimed genius), not to be confused with PSG as I wrote this week on this blog, I thought I could improve that by blending them together into: lesbiman.
I’ll dedicate it to Pernille and Magdalena, and any other nice women I’ve met in my life, and especially over the last thirteen years of creative writing and nostalgic travelling. My contribution to Pride.
Hopefully the not so nice people of the world that attack any humour that they think may be about them will see that parody and satire is not necessarily negative. I include Pernille and the Wolfsburg Women in my humour while really admiring and supporting them, a little bit from afar!
I would be delighted if other creatives or media parodied me or the greenYgrey in such a respectful way, and that’s all I’ve got to say on the matter this sunny September eve day!
