      This is standing up for what you believe in. Not some American sodomite whinging because he has to go 5 blocks further to go to a gay club, rather then next door to the grade school. This guy faces the real threat of death, American fags bitch about the lack of free contraception, ouch!

      @tidalpool:

      No, actually American gays bitch about things like being fired from work and federal amendments enshrining second class status and discrimination.

      But you know, keep on proving how pathtetic you are by seeming to WANT the situation in America to be as bad for gays as they are in Lembanon.

      In case you hadn’t noticed, when things are better in some countries it can spread to people in other countries.

      Mashrou Liela have been putting out some great music that everyone can appreciate … and with amazing and courageous breaking of social taboos … the lyrics for the songs below are usually in the comments …

      Shem il yasmeen is about his ex-lover who was closeted … he wanted him to stick around and be introduced to his parents … this was a shocker to many Arab listeners
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Df-89RZgXrw

      Fasateen was their first big hit about cross-confessional love affair …
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aW64GdfOGY

      Um El Jacket (Pardon) is about a a woman with short hair and no makeup wearing a jacket that he mistakes for man …
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByXA3BZM_NA

      Ini Mneeh … is a desperate cry for attention for another man that he wants him to acknowledge him …
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GorjIk4Zmdg

      I highly recommend people check these out and their other songs … I think they can resonate with any listener despite the language barrier because Hamid is so go at translating emotions into his signing voice …
