This blog entry is a continuation of a discussion involving the claim “hand gesture insults are meant to deride the condition of the body of the person the insulting gesture is directed at”. Three hand gesture insults have been used in the discussion.
This hand gesture insult is known as “The Sign of the Animal” in Happeh Theory nomenclature.
This hand gesture insult is commonly referred to as “The Sign of the Loser”.
The hand gesture shown in the following picture is not an insult made by one person towards another. It is an unconscious hand gesture that insults the person making it. This hand gesture is known as “The Sign of the Small Penis” in Happeh Theory nomenclature.
Each of those hand gesture insults involved raising the hand up by the head, then forming the fingers in some unique configuration.
Why would raising the hand up by the head with the fingers in different configurations be insulting? The premise of this series of blog entries is that the hand gestures are pointing out some deficiency in the body of the person the insulting gesture is being made towards. What bodily deficiency or change would be highlighted by raising the hand up by the head and forming the fingers into some configuration?
Now please examine the following picture.
This man is standing up straight with his right hand raised up to chest level.
While the man’s right hand is not raised up as to his head like a hand making “The Sign of the Loser”, “The Sign of the Animal”, or “The Sign of the Small Penis”, it is raised upwards from it’s normal location hanging at the side of the body. It would therefore be reasonable to expect his body to react to the raising of his hand to chest level, in a way similar to the way a human body reacts when the hand is raised up to the head.
How has the man’s body reacted to the raising of his right hand up to chest level? While it cannot be directly connected to the raising of the man’s right hand to chest level, the man’s right eye does look more closed than his left eye.
If someone wanted to be hurtful to another person who only had one eye, one way to insult them would be to draw attention to the fact they only had one eye. The person who wanted to be hurtful could point their finger and say “Look at that person! They only have one eye!”.
Couldn’t the man in the picture be described as having only one eye? His right eye is open a little bit, but it looks like it is mostly closed.
If we agree that the right eye of the man in the picture can be described as closed, then the man in the picture could be the target of an insult pointing out he only had one eye.
So let’s say that the man in the picture above really is an example of a human being who fits the description of who the insults are designed for. A man with only one eye. ( Which also indicates impaired mental function ). Is there anything in this picture that might help us figure out what it is that is going on with his body that makes him have only one eye? Or makes him look like he only has one eye? Or provides the reason why his right eye is closed more than his left eye?
Sure there is. For the person who can see what they are looking at.
If you can see what you are looking at, the arrow on the left shows that the guy has a relatively large and bulging outward left chest. The arrow on the right side shows his right chest looks shrunken and is further back than the left side of the chest.
Are you thinking the interesting thing to think? It is right there in front of you.
The man has his right eye closed more than his left eye, and the man’s right chest is smaller than his left chest.
That must be a coincidence right? The eye is in the head, so it is only coincidence that the right side of the chest is shrunken and the right eye is shrunken closed more than the left eye.
It has to be a coincidence. Doesn’t it? If you are not sure, just keep repeating it. It is only a coincidence. It is only a coincidence. It is only a coincidence…………….
