Jamaicans: Same Gender Dancing = "Dirty Dancing"


Jamaican Gleaner: SEX & RELATIONSHIP - Same-sex dancing ... what's up with that?


It is interesting how culture and tolerance for certain social actions differ so greatly despite the proximity with other cultures.

Dancing has been a major part of the Jamaican culture
. In times past, when you went to a party, men and women danced as couples. But nowadays, on the party scene, you find that more and more men prefer to dance in groups together, on one side of the room, while women gyrate with one another elsewhere on the same dance floor.

This trend is rather puzzling to those who still hold traditional views about dancing. Some people cannot comprehend why men would prefer to dance by themselves while women would 'rub up' against each other as opposed to 'dropping legs' together the old-fashioned way.

Is this gay?




Artist: Buju Banton
Song: Boom Bye Bye


Lyrics:

World is in trouble

Constructive Feedback -- That is a very disturbing trend and, as someone who lived in Jamaica, I am shocked.

A Panasonic THIRD WATCH
recorder can be a good item for one's home thanks to all of the features it has. For this, you’ll need authoring software like Nero Burning ROM. A THIRD WATCH DVD
writer is required to burn THIRD WATCH DVD COLLECTION
.


Over the years the Breitling Watches
has evolved aesthetically and technically. Some would arguethat the currunt Evolution Breitling Avenger
is the most accomplished to date. Most of the Navitimer World
have automatic, mechanical movements, however some, especially the Bentley Motors T
, have a quartz movement.
