We Were Frankly Surprised The Brides Didn't Want To Show A Little More Skin.

In Dubai earlier this month, 22 men were arrested for taking part in a mass gay wedding. Some were dressed in traditional arab bride attire, and while the rest were dressed as grooms. As punishment for breaking the country's law against outward homosexual behavior, the group could face "government-ordered hormone treatments, five years in jail and a lashing."

While our original reaction was "Oh, how nice of the government to help pay for the first steps of their male-to-female surgical procedures," we quickly realized that, like always, we were being naive. The government wants them to be more masculine to fix the problem. They want to make up for the lack of testosterone in these male citizens.

Which we realized shouldn't have been a surprise.

Dubai? Overcompensate? Never.

First thought: Oh, are there fellow prisoners in for it, now!

Second thought: Muscle queens across the world pay good money for the stuff they'll inject into them for free.

(Real, serious thought: how barbaric.)
