Today's word for the #NZBlogger's Blog Greatness challenge is "Neutral".
Coming up with a topic post around the word "Neutral" had my brain trying to weed out ideas , at first I thought about the whole Gender Neutral theme going on at the moment with the Avengers being switched genders and buying gender neutral clothing for girls and boys , not going Pink is for girls and Blue is for boys. Then I thought a little closer to home and where my passion lies and I came up with the titled post of "Team Switzerland" aka Staying Neutral.
I first heard the word Team Switzerland when Twilight by Stephenie Meyer was released into a movie, several years after the books release. Everyone was like which Team are you on - Vampires or Werewovles ? Are you a Edward fan or a Jacob fan ? Do you prefer the Cullens or the Blacks ? . Me personally, I liked Vampires over Werewolves but I didn't have a complete favourite and therefore the phrase "Team Switzerland" was coined as apparently Switzerland is known as a neutral country.
I now often apply the "Team Switzerland" to a few of my things that come up daily instead of picking just one as often it is difficult especially if you actually like more than two things in a show or a book. It also can be seen as a safe word ,like my stand and viewpoints on Fifty Shades of Grey - instead of now saying I am calling the Amendment of Freedom of Speech , you can say I stand for Team Switzerland, which simply means you are taking a "Neutral" stand on the current issues.
Question For Readers:
Are you Team Vampire /Werewolf or Team Switzerland ?
