On TV shows, bullying, and frogs

On TV shows, bullying, and frogs.

Some background info on this post: A “comedy” TV show in Lebanon has recently been airing skits that ridicule a number of minorities, be they domestic workers, Palestinians, or gay people. In last night’s episode, they featured a stereotypically gay man singing a love song to another man in a mocking way. A number of people voiced outrage about this on social media outlets today.

I spent one night in jail for some LGBT work I was doing.
