SA Beauty Pageant 2008. Good lawd!

Every now and again I unstick my head from my bum and read the news.  One particular story had me stop what I was doing, scrounge for some paper and draw you a pretty little picture.  If you click on it it should grow bigger (amazing, I know) and you can read the words and see her his their facial features in better detail:

SA Beauty Pageant 2008

 

Inspired by this:  http://www.news24.com/News24/South_Africa/News/0,,2-7-1442_2377628,00.html sorry, the wordpress link popper upper thingy won’t work right now.  So I can’t cleverly make it link to a word and stuff.

“I want world peace, and pretty flowers, and some education for the poor, and world peace and also, world peace”.

    eish… i know “one of them” and felt hugely dof because i never picked up anything until somebody else told me… so sad really… but still… eish 🙂

    I reckon they should apply the “if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…” principle. I mean, these things are all about personality, aren’t they?

    isn’t it nice some people are still so judgmental, i mean gee, imagine a world without “them”, who would be left to mock, humiliate and scorn, just because “they” didn’t fit into our pre-concieved box of how somebody should appear, act, dress, be…

    Don’t you have a problem with boxes shebee? just asking…

    roger waters says it better than i in the wall…

    Are there any queers in the theater tonight?
    Get them up against the wall!
    There’s one in the spotlight, he don’t look right to me,
    Get him up against the wall!
    That one looks Jewish!
    And that one’s a coon!
    Who let all of this riff-raff into the room?
    There’s one smoking a joint,
    And another with spots!
    If I had my way,
    I’d have all of you shot!

    that was back in 1979. so glad nothings change. whats next, bring back apartheid?

    Amandzing, something tells me that you have a personal problem with this since you seem to get uptight everytime a joke is made about homosexuals. Please note, my tongue was firmly placed in my cheek when I drew that cartoon.

    Its not often I stop making fun of myself to make fun of someone else, when I do I would expect the same reaction that I get when its about me : senses of humour.

    Now, take back what you said or I’ll draw a picture of you 😛

    homosexual? who said anything about homosexual? and yes, when people who do not fit ‘societal norms’ iare mocked, then i get my panties in a bnch. (theres a mental image for you) i was 5ft 10′ at school in std 8, i was bigger than some matrics! so yes. i’m sensitive. and it’s my little mission to sensititise people to being insensitive.

    draw away :p

  6. shebee says:

    Sorry, not homosexual, transexual!

    look, you don’t need to sensitise me. If I say “some of my best friends are Queens” you’ll think i’m being candid, but its true! how do you think i got the link in the first place? Leon, my gaymate sent it to me.

    I make fun of everything including myself. And hey, if I can sit here and tell you guys what a dork I am, I feel its only fair to take the light off me for a change and shine it on Lindiwe* instead.

    * The Transvestite in question

    PS: Sorry you were so tall in matric, I was the shortest! Some of my school mates still call me Limpet the Dwarf.

    He Shebee:

    Amandzing forwarded this to me, I hope that doesn’t frighten you in any way……. I think that any country would be hard pressed to find anything in any set of rules or standards that would not allow this woman to participate. Not necessarily directing this at you, but it is not this woman’s job to make other people comfortable. One part of transgender identity that some persons don’t understand, is that these persons have been born into the wrong body; she is a female, as she has been since birth, most likely. SHe just was assigned the wrong equipment. It really is that simple, but we humans tend to make it more complicated………

    I, also, get my panties in a bunch because humor toward others almost always creates someone as a target……

    Just my two cents……..
