Still, I like the idea that in those tribal cultures, the concept of homosexuality was not viewed as some sort of evil anomaly that needed to be culled out.  It was viewed in a positive and pragmatic way. 

I also once saw a documentary about the "third gender" concept focusing on the ladyboys in Thailand, the Hijras in India, the equivalent in Samoa, etc.  What stuck with me was that even though Samoa is a heavily Christian nation, culturally if a boy lost his virginity to one of those "third gender" 'ladyboys' it was not considered a homosexual act.  After all, he wasn't having sex with a man, he was having sex with a third-gender.

I think I've seen bits of a similar documentary, actually. I remember some interviews with the Hijras in India.

It's becoming increasingly difficult for me to express anti-homosexuality views in this day and age. I can understand why-- most people who believe that homosexuality is wrong can be very insulting and extreme about their views (it reflects a fear or insecurity within themselves, maybe), so they're just assumed to be intolerant jackasses from the getgo. Eitherway, I found those links pretty funny. Especially the one to the imdb boards. :P

Dices threads always seem to take a different direction than she probably indented...

I think the last one went off on a tangent about Indian food and now it seems to be going the way of drugs.

speaking of indian food, is a place considered "indian" if only indians work in said place but not have any association with food that originates from that country?
that was probably a bad, insensitive question but it's really been bugging me

that seems a little unfair since I've heard of drunks that are friendlier while being drunk than being not drunk at all.

Um, well. There is a family of Chinese people in my town who run a chip shop. And we don't call it the Chinese Chip Shop. So, my answer would be no. Unless it serves Indian food, it isn't an Indian resteraunt. It's a resteraunt, or whatever-kind-of-food-they-serve-araunt

I suppose I'm flattered.  I'd like to consider it a free chance to spam, and a way to freely socialize more openly, then by a topic-by-topic basis.

When it comes to weed, I personally feel the taboo is much to strong (and I do it very very occasionally anyways).
That, and I work at a bar.  I can genuinely say I prefer calmed stoners to drunken losers.  Either way, both make you dumb.

Some of the best sushi I ever had was prepared by a Mexican cook (who was probably taught sushi from another Mexican cook who was taught by a Japanese.)  Best French food?  Very likely a Mexican cook.  Best contemporary American diner food?  Has to be a Mexican cook.  I'm also willing to bet that the best restaurant Indian food I had was prepared by a Mexican cook. 

The great chefs aren't your Bobby Flay, Wolfgang Puck, Masaharu Morimoto, or Eric Ripert.  The great chefs are Carlos, Jorge, Miguel, and Alejandro running all those kitchens.  They're superhuman.  Any random Mexican line cook plucked from a local diner would completely destroy the culinary competition on shows like Top Chef or Iron Chef.

mexican is a funny word, too
I'm sure a lot of mexican chefs are actually able to make really big expensive restaurants that way while (probably white people) take credit for it.

After seeing Thoren's video, I initially thought Dice's "Cooking With Dog" video would have dog as the ingredient. 

But as much as we may go "eww" at some stuff, plenty of cultures have weird food.  Even in America.  Chitlins anyone?  It's basically deep fried pig rectum.

At least the rectum isn't beating.
