It’s 2017. Let’s make a foufou joke.

A guy was ridiculed for being effeminate on live national television.

The femme shaming was made.
The guests laughed.
The audience clapped.
And somewhere in Lebanon, a 12-year-old femme kid was in the living room watching the show with his parents, and felt like the entire world was laughing at him.

Kudos to the host who tried to fix the fuck-up, but next time… maybe approve the content of your segments before you’re on live TV?

MTV Shamelessly Outs Arrested Gay Men

So two gay men who were fooling around in the car in Ashrafieh got arrested for committing lewd acts in public.

BUT as if getting arrested for gay sex isn’t bad enough…

Now they’re being outed by MTV on its website! Their first and last name, (no none of that initials shit), their mothers’ names, and their date of birth, are all mentioned!

While MTV was at it, it should have also mentioned their blood types in case they need some emergency blood donation after bleeding to death when getting fucked by an egg in prison, don’t ya think?

I don’t get why MTV exposed the guys like that. Does it think it’s about journalistic integrity?

I mean, even the Lebanese Government didn’t mention the full names of the boys and instead opted to mention their names. And that’s the GOVERNMENT!

I just feel bad for those two boys. Everyone has sex in the car. They were just unlucky. And now you got this asshole on a news desk mentioning their mothers’ names. Like, what a freak.

Majdi and Wajdi

Majdi & Wajdi

Majdi & Wajdi are two gay characters featured on a Lebanese comedy show.

They’re extremely stereotypical: feminine, promiscuous, demand big dick, & add the letters “s” and “z” when they talk (Hayatsy, Majdzi, Wajdzi).

Many people are against  featuring them on TV. The straight ones think it glorifies homosexuality and fear that their kids may become gay, while gays are against it because it shows them as feminine sex freaks.

But what really interests me is the people who find it funny.

You see, 2 weeks ago, I was watching TV with my family and “Majdi w Wajdi” got on (they were begging the prison guard to let them go to prison while they carried a bag of soap). I was laughing. My family was laughing. The average Lebanese viewer was laughing.

But were we all laughing at the same thing?

I was laughing WITH Majdi & Wajdi.

Everybody else was most probably laughing AT Majdi & Wajdi.

I’m gay and I get it. I have my feminine moments and talking in a girly way is a part of our gay culture. It’s not something bad. But when you take that small part and base your entire skit around it, you end up showing a one dimensional side of gays.

But at least the show’s keeping the conversation going.

Viewers love the actors Adel Karam and Abbas Chahine who play the characters, so the love and respect they have for those actors can indirectly translate to some likability for Majdi and Wajdi.

They even have a fag hag Tee Tee (pronounced Tsee Tsee) in the show who’s very supportive of her two gays, so that’s good. That shows the viewer that these gays have straight friends who don’t laugh AT them but listen to their problems (and boy drama).

So like it or not, Majdi and Wajdi are a part of Lebanese pop culture.

But at what price? Only time will tell…

MTV’s “Homosexuality in Lebanon”: Hot Mess with a Nice Ending.

Show Presenter: Claude Abou Nader Hindi

Presenter: “The number of homosexuals is small especially in Arab countries which regard homosexuality as a crime against nature and make it punishable by law since society refuses this phenomenon.”

The rise of Haifa Wehbe and other singers who can’t really sing but find success in the music world is a phenomenon. I am not a phenomenon.

Doctor Haddad

Dr. Haddad: “There is no study which says that a person is born gay”. 

Why bring a “Specialist in urinary tract surgery & reproductive organs” to a show discussing homosexuality?

Dr. Haddad: “This is not a disease which a human is born with. But later you and I will discuss if this is a disease or not”.

You said disease, Doc. We know where you stand.

Dr. Shallita

Dr. Shallita (Psychiatrist): “I can see that this gay man is not fully immersed in his homosexuality.”

Please, people. Don’y pray away the gay… 

Dr Shallita: “Why do parents kick their gay children out of the house? We need to take care of this teenager who is doing all of this to get their attention & affection”.

Kids… If your parents aren’t giving you enough love (or money), pretend you’re gay! 

Dr. Haddad: “If this boy has been sexually molested by his father since he was a young kid, then this person has every possibility to be gay.”

Being gay equals being molested by your father and your 16 year old friend from school. Said the Urologist.

– What is up with the horror noises when the gay guy found 10,043 profiles when he searched for Lebanese gays on Manjam? Why do you wanna scare your viewers? Bel3akes. Allah Yzeedon!

10,043 'gays' in Lebanon! Oh the Horror!

– What is up with the Halloween night at a gay pub? Why is that so relevant to the topic at hand? Don’t all clubs in Lebanon have a Halloween night where everyone dresses up?

– When MTV showed the clip of the “gay partying”, it showed the EXACT SAME CLIP that they showed during the “Prostitution episode”: a guy dancing like a girl. Very fucked up, MTV.

"Gay Partying" clip is the same clip MTV showed weeks ago in its "Prostitution" Clip. Very fucked up, MTV.

– MTV shows two “feminine looking” men walking on the street, directly assuming they’re gay. Stereotype much?

– The transition from the topic of homosexuality to the topic of transexuality wasn’t clear. We talked about gays and lesbians, talked about transsexuals, then showed a relationship between two gay men. Yes! In that exact order! How is your viewer going to understand that transexuality and homosexuality are DIFFERENT and NOT the same after you mixed everything up?

Randa. A woman. A transexual.

– The show also mixed transsexuals with transvestites (cross dressers). Randa the transsexual is talking about her suicidal thoughts, getting raped, during segments where Dr. Shalita talked about how mothers should watch out for young kids who like to wear women’s shoes and makeup since this leads to transexuality. Wait…what? Huh? Again with equating transexuality to cross dressing! Oh, the horror. I die.

– The only time lesbians were mentioned was when two lesbians fought outside a gay pub. Oh but there WAS another 99 second interview with a lesbian at the end of the show; a lesbian who is a lesbian NOW but later wants to get married and have kids because “you can’t escape from the society you’re in”. Represent! =)

– It was nice to see two men in a relationship, holding hands on the bed. They even shared a kiss.

A gay Kiss. Blurred. But gay.

The conclusion that the presenter did was nice:

“Is homophobia justified? This rejection by society and family brings deep suffering to those people, making them feel rejected and marginalized, leading for some teenagers to commit suicide and for others to boast their sexuality. Isn’t it time to amend the Lebanese law which regards homosexuality as crime punishable by law, especially considering that in any family there might be a gay person. So do we reject a brother? Do we get disgusted by a sister? Do we ignore a friend? Do we kill a neighbor, just because their sexual orientation is different from ours, and the way they feel towards others is different from our feelings?”

66 minutes is not enough to talk about all of those issues.

What we were left with is a big hot mess.

Why didn’t you interview a parent who is supportive of their gay daughter & son?

Why not include a Doctor/professional/someone who says “It’s Okay to be Gay”?

Fine. I’ll say it. Dear 10 year old gay girls and boys: “It’s Okay to be Gay”.

Can’t Watch the Video Music Awards…yet again!

It’s been like 4 years that I can’t watch the annual Video Music Awards because my cable provider doesn’t supply us with MTV. Fuckin ass.

So I guess it’s another year without watching the show.

Oh well…Britney won’t be attending OR performing, so I have nothing to miss anyway.

Except that I was lookin forward to see Taylor Swift debut a new song she wrote about Kanye West, after the fucked up shit he did to her last year (LMFAO).

"Sorry Taylor. But Beyonce had one of the best videos of alll time"- Kanye

And Thank Jesus for Gaga. She’s a performer. At least that’s something worth watching. (“Telephone” for Video Of the Year!!!)

Let’s not forget Chelsea Handler…she makes me laugh out loud everytime I watch her show. So am sure she’ll be hilarious.

But Oh baby baby…I do miss the VMA’s glory days…when Britney would perform.

Bitch better perform next year!

Flashback to 2003 where I watched my first VMAs ever cause I knew Britney would open the show…but I never thought she would be part of one of the most iconic performances of our generation.

Can't believe it's been 7 years since THE KISS!
