A Human Crush is when you have a crush on someone or adore them but in a platonic, non-sexual way.

(I created this term in late 90's but can't remember when? 1997?)
I just love Robin Wright, I have such a human crush on her!!

He's amazing, that old guy from the corner market, I have a human crush on him.

(not a sexy term but sweeter way of saying boy or girl crush which is odd)

The Macho Paradigm© is the overall system of conditioning of masculine or male dominated culture, esp. here in the U.S. This is the system by which parents and society raise children, primarily boys by emphasizing macho stereotypes, expectations, behaviors, standards of emotional repression through the shaming of boys in particular that if they don't live up to these standards they are considered weak and inadequate. This is often done by a comparison to and , the condescension of femininity/female stereotypical behavior such as emotional, gentle, sensitive as the epitome of weakness. Anyone can be negatively affected by The Macho Paradigm© but most of all males are harmed by it's constant pressure it puts on them to live up to a stereotype of what a man is even if it causes pain on him or those around him. Things like chauvinism and misogyny as well as peer pressure could theoretically be traced back to The Macho Paradigm© as a root source of that programming that causes people to not only repress themselves to appear tough and cool but then to shame others into the same macho conformity. ©2014/DM
Examples of Peer Pressure Quips in the Macho Paradigm©:
'Man-Up' . 'Don't be a pussy' . 'He hits/throws like a girl'

Noun-The Macho Paradigm is the system we live in at the root of everything.

'The Macho Paradigm is one of the main causes in culture that drives men to put each other down when they are not tough or macho enough and sometimes even bully them'.

'Many boys feel like they can never measure up living in a culture influenced by The Macho Paradigm©'.

AllSport© could be a new league of athletes where anyone can try out & play regardless of gender/sex. Rather than force male or female leagues to accept people who are not actually female or male but living as them to be on the team, why not create a new league that allows anyone to play. That way everyone can be on a team or in a sport.

The other league that could be created could be TranSport© That way there are many leagues: Male, Female, AllSport and Trans. Everyone can play now!
AllSport© league allows people to try out & play a sport based on their weight class, height and skill level. Nothing else matters. Play hard, play fair!
