Battle of the sexes I


Cada género tem as suas qualidades e defeitos, os seus pontos fortes e fracos, as suas especificidades tornando as tentativas de os pôr no mesmo nível algo espúrias e desprovidas de sentido. Assim de repente e entre umas quantas óbvias vantagens e desvantagens (ou apenas diferenças) muito relacionadas com a testosterona e o estrogénio, há uma que me salta como pouco discutida e algo peculiar (encontrei três referências na blogosfera aqui, aqui e aqui): o arrepio de mijo. Aquele estranho estremecimento que nos assalta perto do final do acto e que nos percorre o corpo de baixo para cima, eriçando cada folículo até nos revirar os olhos para gáudio e regozijo de quem o sente. Difícil de definir excepto para quem já foi acometido por tal reacção fisiológica, este pequeno prazer que nos aquece por dentro escapa e sempre escapará ao sexo oposto. É coisa de gajo de voz grossa e barba rija! A questão é: terão as meninas de puxinhos e lacinhos algo que se lhe equivalha (gosto muito desta forma verbal!)?
