United Arab Emirates Launches Campaign Against Lesbians

Excuse me, I'm a girl.

OK, I'm not just telling you that as an FYI. "Excuse me, I'm a girl" is actually the name of a new public campaign launched in the United Arab Emirates to crack down on lesbians.

In the UAE, lesbians are considered "manly" women that harass "normal" women. In order to address this menace, the government will employ educational and psychological experts to teach women about appropriate femininity.

A public service campaign filled with workshops and experts seems like quite a modern way to promote not-so-modern values!

So they only support so called "lipstick" lesbians? Not the more butch ones?

So I'm confused. Does this mean they're okay with women being homosexual as long as they're 'appropriately feminine' while they do it?

GKitty - that sounds good, then I can safely say that I am appropriately feminine. :-)

Economically times are tough, so let's focus on pressuring women to be more appropriately feminine - that'll help a lot.

ROFL Gkitty... good point, sounds like the men are feeling threatened. But seriously... "appropriate femininity" wtf is that?(ah, ok I think I just answered my own question... it's probably things like not saying "wtf").
