long hu dou

There has been a lot going on recently in the media and blogs etc about issues that are a little .....out in my head.

Lets start with no.1 Homosexuality. There is a furore going on in the papers quoting some git saying something regarding sex education to keep homosexuality (caught from the west btw) at bay. I do not know if I am homophobic or not. I had a good friend in school and he turned out to be, and I accepted it for what it was. If it was my own son then I would have great difficulty. There I said it. I would still love him, but be sure that I would have immense feelings of guilt in case it was all my fault......(maybe if he hadn't been circumcised, maybe if I had sent him to another, tougher school, maybe this, maybe that). If it is innate or not I really do not know. I think it is but then society just accelerates all that by condoning it. I am confused but I do not think I am a bigot.

No.2 Racism. Most of my closest friends are of mixed race or another race to me. I saw all the fuss on TV about Big Brother and Shilpa Poppadom. Crikey, can't people take a joke? We all know that Shilpa is dead snobby and can be quite bitchy, but hey, she is a Bollywood A lister, kudos to her. Most Brits (as Americans are too) are quite raw when it comes to understanding other cultures. They like to enjoy a good curry, but have no idea that they themselves invented the chicken tikka masala .
Anyway, back to BB, the lady that everyone as been fussing all about (Jane Goody) does not strike me as being particularly racist but more of common filth which needs to be ignored.
I heard a guy on the radio this morning and he said it all in a nutshell for me. We are many colours with varying levels of education and wealth, but we all have something the same, and that is the colour of the blood running through our veins. (oops, animals have red blood too.)

No.3 Eating Pussy. I do not desire a Siamese Stir Fry or a Sealpoint Taco, probably because I am not accustomed to the idea. I am not sure why I have difficulty stomaching the thought, most likely it is because society says it is cruel to slaughter our pets. In my opinion cows and chickens are whole lot smarter and affectionate than cats and dogs. It is all about conditioning people. After a few more 7 days articles we will not be so shocked, then a few more and we will start wondering about the recipes the labourers are trying out, and finally, who knows, we may all be queuing outside the slaughter house with our moggies tucked neatly under our arms.

Feel free to comment, don't forget to send in your recipes for long hu dou.

First time for me to comment here but I'm a regular reader.

Nicely written on the Racism thing; red says it all.

BuJ said...

dunno where to start really.. ufff.. on the first two topics.. well homosexuality affects everyone and is documented from centuries and centuries ago... in the qoran for instance... it's nothing to do with the west.. it's only that the west have been more relaxed about it recently.

as for racism.. that really gets my goat.. especially when ppl make a huge fuss out of something simple really.. the big brother thing is annoying i think it should be banned or an age limit should be applied.. it should have an under 12 rating or applied only to those with limited IQ etc..

Louis.. good to see u dude :)
i heard an EK office was burnt down in bur dubai.. nothing to do with u i hope? hehe

Long Distance said...

EK office?
Is this ques directed towards me or CG?
Cos I havn't got a clue what your on about mate?

BuJ said...

Neither dear Long D.. it's directed at Louis.. or AWOS.. and is a joke.. coz he lost some baggage.. but no EK office burnt down (under my patronage).

nzm said...

LD: yeah, it gets confusing - A World of Symphony's name is Louis, not Louise!

EK lost his bags last week, so BuJ was asking him if he was responsible for the torching of the EK office! lol.

CG: you sure covered the gamut today! I don't think that there are any parents who don't go through the guilt and emotions upon hearing that their son or daughter is gay. The lucky ones are the families who come out of the process in the end realising that the children are still their children and they are loved regardless of their orientation.

My mother once said to me that her and Dad's biggest wish for me was that I would be happy and live the life I wanted to live - they could ask for nothing more than that.

Their wish came true!

nzm said...

oops - sorry BuJ - we posted at roughly the same time!

BuJ said...

ha! and sorry you should be!!! given all that burning and stuff.. i'll unleash Louise (sic) on you hehehehe

just kidding :P

CG said...

Louise? That is Long Distance....hmmm getting baffled here. Lets hope LD can figure it all out.

Anyway where are my recipes for long hu dou???

CG said...

and nzm, I was speaking about male homosexuality. My post on lesbianism shall be following shortly.....and it is something to be excited about...yeeeha!!

BuJ said...

ouch.. i'm looking forward to the comments section of that!

Long Distance said...

Interesting!
I have concluded that Buj fantasizes about Arson, nzm is a lesbian, Harsha can't decide what she is, Symphony hates Emirates & CG is having fun expressing her multiple personalities in CyberSpace!
As for me I like to stir things a little:)

Long Distance said...

PS,
Maybe Buj is also a Lesbian Arsonist, maybe Buj & nzm are dating?
OMG! May be You'r All Lesbians!!!

CG said...

Why don't you join us all in a gang bang Long Distance? Perhaps you can't keep up with the pace.

Long Distance said...

CG,
You need to stop threatening me or I'll have to tell everyone exactly how you paid for that private reg plate!!

Anonymous said...

Ouch!

CG said...

oooh ooh....Long Distance,,,,,tut tut. is that a threat I hear? I only challenged you....so here we go, it seems.
Anyway, I don't CARE a birds crappe` what you tell everyone....as I in turn can tell quite a few porkies about you too....FIRE AWAY GIRL!!!!!

BuJ said...

Long Distance.. I'm a guy.. so I guess it would make me the first guy-lesbian.. nzm is female.. so she's then a she-lesbian in ur books..

if we were dating then we'd be straight lesbians.. so u don't need to use the word lesbian..

i would have assumed u can determine my gender by looking at my picture.. i've kept it easy but people still get confused.

as for the number plate.. touchy subject..esp in dubai

CG said...

Harsha has turned into anonymous. what is going on?

Long Distance said...

OK Buj,
We will split the difference, You are not a lesbian, just a guy who enjoys reading semi lesbian blogs:)

nzm said...

Girls who hang out with gay guys are known as fag hags.

There hasn't been a term coined for guys who hang out with gay women.

Perhaps we can invent one? :-)

Harsha said...

oho I probably clicked on 'Anonymous ' instead of my blogger ID. Nothings going on.

BuJ said...

LD.. no deal!
would u like to eat a half-baked cake?

CG said...

lesbians, cakes, half-eaten...this is all sounding a little bit fudged to me.

BuJ said...
