Gays and Bacch-Anal
Last night while commuting home on my hottaz JUTC A/C yellow bus (you know how I roll), I overheard a conversation that piqued my interest. Two young men and a young lady where discussing what the young lady termed “di invasion of battyman at Mas Camp cuz of Bacchanal”. The guys, one feminine in behaviour (I can’t remember how to spell ‘effiminate’ or ‘effeminate’ and I’m too lazy to check) and the other quite masculine, were adamant that the girl was closed minded and shouldn’t be painting all men who attend Mas Camp for Bacchanal as “battyman”.
As we cruised along in A/C comfort, the girl made an allegation that rang true to me, at least in part. She claimed the only reason gays, (wait, is that word offensive? Should I use the politically correct ‘homosexuals’?), go to Mas Camp is because the cover of soca music gives them the chance to behave “outrageously and disgusting”, I had said I agreed with her in part because I’m not sure the behaviour is ‘disgusting’; as I’ve never personally been to Mas Camp.
However, having grasped the essence of soca music, I would agree that gays would have an opportunity which might not have been otherwise present were it a different public setting. I’ve heard stories of all out “dashing out” by young men clad in skimpy and revealing clothing. I’ve heard stories of men dancing, that is wining, on other men. I’ve even heard stories of blatant homosexual conduct on the grounds of Mas Camp. Let me hasten to add, I am not suggesting that these allegations are true, I am merely saying I can see how bacchanal could give license to that kind of behaviour. You’re entitled to disagree.
Being the very nuff person I am, I decided to intervene in the conversation taking place. You see, I was curious as to who determines how gays are supposed to act in public. So I posed that question to the young lady in my most carefully enunciated English. She replied, “battyman fi hol’ dem cawnaz and mek God bless people enjoi dem self” (-.-) She couldn’t even attempt a lil English though? Hssst. Anyhow, I decided to press her further. So I asked her if gays weren’t allowed the benefit of public entertainment. Her reply, “Mi pay mi money guh inna Mas Camp enuh! Mi nuh waan see nuh fish!” The sheer DAWKNISS of that comment threatened to overpower even the brilliant fluorescent lights in the goodaz JUTC bus. I looked at her for a few seconds, just a blank stare; then I gave her what Brandon calls a ‘slow f@%king blink’. I then put my earphones in and tuned out the rest of their convo. I was once told never argue with a fool. Advice I take very seriously.
For the rest of my journey I wondered :
(1) Does bacchanal really attract a larger homosexual than heterosexual crowd?
(2) Is the behaviour displayed “outrageous and disgusting”?
And based on the young lady’s final response to me :
(3) Do gays jump the wall to get into bachannal? Only heterosexuals pay to get in? 😐
I’d love some answers to these questions.
The last thing I heard of their conversation before getting off the bus was one of the guys speaking to the girl, “yaw eediot enuh Rochelle!”
I concur sir. I concur.
By the way, is this a co-incidence? “bacch-ANAL” #OkBye. *ninja vanish*
