2 news items on the ‘same’ theme.
I read yesterday that the government of Kuwait is to introduce a ‘gayness test’ for people arriving in the country by air. Anyone who fits the profile will be sent away on the next available plane. Rod Liddle, writing in yesterday’s (British) Sunday Times, comments “I don’t know what these tests will entail, but they will undoubtedly need someone to identify likely suspects: television weathermen, people walking a bit funny, cyclists, chat show hosts, cat lovers, exceptionally well-groomed people, the Dutch, men swigging at bottles of mineral water or dabbing at their faces with a scented handkerchief, high court judges, and so on… I could be that man, especially if there’s a uniform with ‘Gay Busters’ written on it in Arabic. What a vile country.”
Well, Liddle has found the right mix of humour and disgust in that short piece. Doesn’t look like we’d better organise any shows there, then!
Memo to people arriving in Kuwait: don’t arrive holding any of these items featured on the left! And for that matter, be careful with cookery books, fashion magazines featuring men’s clothes and so on – ‘Mens Fitness’ magazine is probably OK though, and certainly anything featuring soccer!
Secondly, Dave and I successfully upgraded our artistic gymnastic coaching qualifications yesterday, coaching in front of a jury with the assistance of some great kids from the gymnastics centre. Just thought I’d mention that! We’ll be attempting the same feat with our acrobatic gymnastics qualifications in three week’s time.
Of course, it is not only gay guys that attend fitness centres in pursuit of better bodies. Nor indeed, it is only gay guys that admire such bodies. All such images featured in this blog make no statement about the sexuality of those pictured (statement to the Kuwait government, just in case they are monitoring the web like NSA or GCHQ in UK and drawing up ‘Stasi’-like files on potential future visitors…). Let’s enjoy:
