Apples & bananas? Masculine fruits?
“The most obvious differences between males and females include all the features related to reproductive role, notably the internal and external genital differentiation. Men also have a more pronounced ‘Adam’s Apple’ or thyroid cartilage (and deeper voices) due to larger vocal cords.” – Wikipedia. There are of course many more gender differences between men and women but the image below emphasizes on those main gender distinctions.
“Masculine Fruits”: Behind the scene
Recently, I took a picture of my healthy snack at work: an apple & a banana (upper left/lower right). The picture was very simple but for some reason I was faced with a challenge: What name should I give my picture while going above & beyond the basic limits of names. Thinking outside the box, one of my favorite mental activities. It is after looking at the image for a while that I began to ask myself what those 2 fruits had in common, trying to create a link by finding a title that would gather both, the apple & the banana, into the same basket. With a constantly active imagination, my perception began to shift to the “subliminal” side of things. More specifically, my mind started perceiving the high in antioxidant apple as a representation of men’s adam’s apple & representative of male’s reproductive organ, the rich in potassium banana. It is important to note that since the concept came after the image, it is limited to those 2 fruits. Thus, it is important to note that there are so many other ways & fruits possible to represent anatomical sex dissimilarities.
Finally, whether male or female, make sure to include fruits in your healthy eating habits :)
Thinking outside the box? Always, indeed!
