You know the saying “Wear your heart on your sleeve”? First heard in Shakespeare’s play Othello to show faithfulness and vulnerability, in addition to knights back in the middle ages who were said to have worn the colors of the lady they were supporting, in cloths or ribbons tied to their arms. What a romantic notion? Don’t ya think? This expression has reared it’s head (ugly or good) with social media platforms, blogs, activism, public personal opinions and so on.
