And he was right. At least about the parade he saw and the parade I saw. I don't give a rat's arsehole about Sydney.


There's a difference between accurate and unrepresentative. To say it's not accurate would mean that no one at the event was dressed like that.

Oh for Christ's sake! You can weasel away all you like, but you made your point clearly enough. Keep your high school debate club tactics for someone who's interested.
If it shows only weirdoes then its not an accurate representation. That is perfectly acceptable use of the term. End of story.

Poagao, ready to identify the homophobia yet?


Perhaps in your little world, that makes sense. Please tell me that you don't teach English. I have to admit defeat, however, in that I cannot explain, much less identify homophobia to you. It would take a team of analysts working day and night for years to do that, I'm afraid.

Comes from having a monty pythonesque warped sense of humour....

All this discussion over a Mardi Gras, people are Mardi Gras are mean to wear colourful outfits and act up, that's just normal for this type of event and it is what people expect to see.

WHo wants to go to a mardi gras to see people wearing clothes we see regularly day to day.

It's a festival.

Sydney's gay Mardi Gras is not under discussion by anyone other than Fortigurn. We're talking about Taipei.

Ahhhh, Monty Python!
Good old days with "The Life of Brian"!

He was gay too right?
Already had to suffer from gay bashers in those days, poor sucker...
He got stoned if I recall well (not from smoking lah!),
we just get beaten up, well not here in Taiwan.

I have to say, they did wear strange clothes (dresses?)....

That bird shielding her face from the sun with the mini skirt on is well hot. Is she a lesbian?
