On my way home, I got into the bus with my cousin and a friend of ours (they are both chemistry students). At one point a guy got into the bus also… He was a shock!
He looked so merosexual, if not to say totally homosexual! He wore tight jeans, in fact his jeans were so tight that I can’t understand how was he able to wear them without feeling the pressure in certain areas. He also wore high boots that cover the lower part of the pants, which is a strictly feminine fashion in Lebanon. I don’t think he removes his eyebrows, in fact I doubt that he would need to. But judging from the look of his arms I believe he shaves his armpits now and then… The conclusion that we, my friends and I, made was very clear.
Now I admit that I feel somehow guilty for not sticking with him when we were commenting among ourselves about him (yes gossiping and stuff) and one of my friends made a rather harsh comment. I simply expressed my amusement about his looks and mentioned that his bracelet was awesome. Maybe I should have been more clear and expressed my support, or at least total tolerance, to the homosexual community. I mean I have done it before, at one occasion last year I answered Jean (who was also expressing homophobic opinions):
“Well, I have no problem with gay people, and in fact I find them very cute” (My exact words were Ktir Mahdoumin)
Why didn’t I? Maybe I feared a confrontation with Rana, who is someone that would brutally respond, or maybe I didn’t want to confront her after a friction about politics, or maybe I was just not in the mood. But I feel I should have been more clear.
