So that you may not be aghast, let’s start with the dictionary meaning. Of the various meanings for this word, to be neutered means, to render ineffective; deprive of vigor or force.
Now that we have set the stage, let the show begin. If possible, read this post from an asexual point of view.
The most virile of beings, in spite of all the virility possible can easily be neutered. Just take away from the being, its sense of being. From a flower, it’s fragrance and colour, from a car, its engine, from movie its screenplay and rendition.
I saw Vasudev Balwant Phadke (2008), (Review
Pending Completed) yesterday. This was a much awaited movie, given my insatiable greed for historic portrayals. Even if they do not adhere to the facts; the inaccurate ones. I was disappointed. I have seen Marathi films come of age. VBP was definitely not in the same lineage. Specifically, the item song did it for me, generally, the dull characterisation did it in.
The full review will come soon, but the conclusion of this movie resulted in the eruption of many a question.
What is the true character of man? A Facebook profile and tagged photos? What is the true character of man? His belief system? And unless you know the true character of man, you will never be able to break it, neuter it. There may be occasions when you may sense victory over an apparent dilution of behaviour. That, however, is a passing phase. To gloat at that instance as a permanent victory is the mark of your inflated ego.
Some men are immensely susceptible to be neutered; easy targets. The others, endure. These two very different personalities may be serving the same cause. True character is deep-rooted in a belief system. You can change their environment or change their life; the character is infallible. How they will react to the change you cause will vary. What will not change is the end result; they will hold on — to their belief system that defines their character.
For someone who believes beyond death, all you will derive of neutering them is momentary glee. When their true character is revealed, you will be horrified.
A silent tribute to the anonymous believers; beings full of character, past, present and future.
