Fame FM's "Uncensored" on Piercings, Men fighting for mirror time & dancehall's changing aesthetics

Last evening's edition of FAME FM's (radio cousin of Television Jamaica TVJ that rejected the Jamaica Forum for Lesbians Allsexuals and Gays JFLAG ad) Uncensored program went from the ridiculous to the sublime and back again in my view in a supposed discussion about piercings initially which ended up all over the place with insinuations of gays in the dancehall, metrosexuality, males fearing effeminacy, men fighting for mirror time with women, men wanting to wear so called female attire more openly and the fast changing unique fashions in dancehall culture. When listening to the program one who is weak in their convictions or insecure in their sexuality would have walked away with a notion that masculinity is going to die forever with the implosion of everything held dear to machismo and how glaringly insecure the male participants especially in the exchange were which included suspected down low but the publicly bitter & homophobic Rodney Campbell.

In studio amongst others was a male guest whose tongue was said to be pierced as he sports a tongue ring openly, at first the female participants expressed some reservations hinting to male homosexuals who do the same and who come to dancehall events posing with females as they are heterosexuals but when the pierced tongue male was given his chance to speak he outlined he did the piercing for purely sexual reasons so as to enhance his ability to perform oral sex on his female partners as he is not gay, the cynical females who at first expressed reservations soon changed their tune most hypocritically and said they would allow a man to have it as long as that was the reason. After being told another male participant forthrightly that women will supposedly turn men like himself into complete gadgets by conforming to new norms and trends that of piercing tongues to provide oral pleasure whilst warning him not to fall for it the pierced tongue brother challenged the men by posturing that he gets into sex with women alot orally, at times with more than one (further confirming the Jamaican men who love multiple female partner action) he asked why can't men reciprocate oral pleasure? seeing we like it when it is done to us by women. Strangely the same ladies who were reserved before cheered loudly in the background when this question was posed. He also said since he has been pierced he has never received any negative feedback over some five years now until his appearance on the show.

Dancehall's changing aesthetics
As for the dancehall and the changing aesthetics the tight pants phenomenon, the change in choice of clothes and that as Rodney Campbell puts it "what would make a man want to wear his entire sister's collection?" clearly showing how backward thinking the mindset of a host of a program when he should be steering the conversation, one wonders what are the criteria for selecting the hosts of radio programs these days? He suggested that many of the so called women who appear in the dancehall maybe cross dressers or drag queens without saying it in so many words. The fear that the metrosexual or outright effeminate mode of dress was changing the masculinity of men or making them girls was expressed over and over again, a male dancer who was introduced to the program said he was not into the new way of dressing as male dancers do not even dance anymore or cannot do certain types of dances as their clothes were too close fitting. Rodney however reminded him that he is fast becoming a relic as he does not match the new look of the dancehall and its dancers. The issue of male colour selection took up some 35 minutes of the entire program as some male voices expressed the fast growing popularity of pink, lilac, fuchsia and other soft or effeminate colours alongside powdered faces and coloured contacts lenses were just too much for them to take. Hints to certain dancehall acts as influencing the metrosexual revolution as I have been calling it in previous posts also came through every now and again but we all knew they were knocking Vybz Kartel forgetting that there were other acts who pushed the envelope long before his rise to power such as Elephant Man and Harry Toddler with their blond hair, pink or multi-coloured uni-sexual tops and tight jeans or nickers. 


Capris for men

The fast rise in popularity of Jeggings, Rosettes on a Cardigan sleeve and Capris for men as well was a sore point for the male participants in the exchange as they thought men should remain as "men" they also took issue to the wearing of large rosettes on the shoulders of some of the male dancers in the game. Text messages from listeners reaffirmed their pronouncements. 

Swagg is supposedly turned up (tun up) with this new type of metrosexual look, swagg or swagger of course is an imported African American term to describe hype fashion and personal style.

At one point US rapper Little Wayne (photoed above) was referenced as an influence to the low wearing or hugging jeggings craze now taking the nation by storm and again co-host Rodney Campbell took issue that he should not be used to define a "thug" or manliness while almost implying that he (LW) or other thug stars was on the downlow, he continued that real thugs do not or are not supposed to dress so metro. The issue of thugs on the DL was also touched on briefly with no serious sensible examination to report, Jamaican men blurring the lines of roles and sexuality came up for some scrutiny when a more enlightened brother made a point that piercings were of African origin and that we should not shy away from it in a sense but that soon died as it came as again good ole Rodney brought the old stereotype into play that men who pierce their right ear were gay and those who now pierced both were supposedly not or men who pierce their chin or lower lip were trying to be too girly hence they are gay. The moving target of pin pointing gays by simple aesthetics was a point the participants could not agree on. New colloquial expressions such as "dash weh shirt, a blouse a dweet" (throw away the shirts its blouses that are doing it) was brought up as well which the more enlightened brother before rebutted that men are exploring their feminine sides so to speak and that styles change wherein we may see a return of more "big clothes" in the future. The cost factor of the clothes also was a sore point as the persons pondered whether the men were being supported by other men secretly suggesting downlow homo thug culture again but publicly having females as handbags or for show to conceal their actions.

Other points and questions in the sometime irritating discourse were:

  • Women are bisexual like oral sex from women who wear tongue rings, why can't men do it too?
  • Men are getting into oral sex more so than now
  • Why bore ones tongue if oral sex is so popular, why not a tongue alone?
  • Most persons like piercings for various reasons including the euphoria of the act 
  • Why are mostly men who complain about piercings done by other men?
  • Rodney Campbell "Oman a wicked but man a wear lilac"
  • One female had a problem with men having their eyebrows arched or the surprised permanently look 
  • We judge persons sexuality just by aesthetics, whether someone is gay or not
  • Persons are pushing the envelope more in Jamaica and doing so in the open
  • A male participant said he used to dance in pink leotards while at arts school and he is not gay
  • Text messages claimed "FIRE" (typical anti gay term) for the so called metrosexual look
  • Do Jamaican women have the so called "gay friend" as a bestie as well that obtains elsewhere?
  • Comparisons to Texan cowboys in tight jeans was used but they are masculine by virtue of the masculine items such as boots and the trademark cowboy hats.
  • The dancer commented he fears being branded as he does not wear the tight clothes etc as others on social networks
  • When did the trends change for men to wear very close jeans or capris with clothes tucked in?
  • Men are now wearing man-liners and or concealers with makeup to hide blemishes alongside french manicure nails etc
  • The influence of the internet was used to suggest the rapid changes in tastes and styles
  • The difference between evolution versus mutation was asked but not responded to by the hosts fully
  • Looking gay versus being gay was very briefly looked at with no proper follow up
  • Everybody no matter who you are has someones fit for them
  • We must allow people to choose freely without judging them (this came at the extreme end of the talks)
  • The tongue pierced man said the other stereotypical actions such as tight pants, eyebrow arching and bleaching are GAY and he wouldn't go there. Co-host Rodney found that profound, he cynically sang Beres Hammond's "One Step Ahead" suggesting to me that the moving target for stereotypical looks.
  • The fashion competitions in the dancehall are rigid that women have to accept the new look of their male partners without protest as they may become the victim of a violent reaction 
  • One female participant asked "why are we acting as if there is a shortage of hardcore men or something?" she suggested persons should find what they like
  • Rodney complained there are no lines of demarcation with effeminacy and masculinity
  • A texter texted in "Gaza we used to seh" (suggesting a switch from Vybz Kartel empire's name
  • Another one said "Steve must be Steve and Eve must be Eve"
  • Persons complained about the hair extensions and coloured mohawks worn by men 
  • Gender roles should be strictly observed so pink for females dark colours for men
  • It's difficult to identify men from women in some instances

All in all the phobia is real as it comes when these same persons travel to other more liberal parts of the world and do not complain so why complain here? We have a long way to go it seems but clearly the individualism that is sweeping the land may very help the soft but extremely fragile tolerance that we now are experiencing nationally but how long will it last and will the relapse implode on the LGBT community?

Lots to consider.

Peace and tolerance

A look at the fear of the feminine (Effemophobia) by Jamaican standards & how it drives the homo-negative perceptions/homophobia in Jamaican culture/national psyche.


After catching midway a radio discussion on the subject of Jamaica being labelled as homophobic I did a quick look at the long held belief in Jamaica by anti gay advocates, sections of media and homophobes that several murders of alleged gay victims are in fact 'crimes of passion' or have jealousy as their motives but it is not as simple or generalized as that.

Aphrodite’s PRIDE JA tackles gender identity, transgender misconceptions .....

Nationwide New Network, NNN devoted some forty five minutes of prime time yesterday evening to discuss the issue and help listeners to at least begin to process some of the information coming from the most public declaration exercise as done by Jenner. Guests on the show were Dr Karen Carpenter Board Certified Clinical Sexologist and Psychologist, ‘Satiba’ from Aphrodite’s P.R.I.D.E Jamaica of which I am affiliated and Lecturer (Sociologist) and host of Every Woman on the station Georgette Crawford Williams (sister of PNP member of parliament Damian Crawford); one of the first questions thrown at Satiba by host Cliff Hughes was why has Jenna waited so long at 65 years old to make such a life changing decision?

Satiba responded that many transwomen have to hide their true identity in life .... given her life when she was younger she was a star athlete she would have been under tremendous precious to stay in from the expectations by the public and her team etc, also owing to the fact that she had a family as a man with children one may not want to upset the flow at that time until the kids are old enough. There is a lot of burden of guilt that some persons carry in weighing the decisions of coming out or transitioning so suppression of one’s true self is the modus operandi.

Dr Carpenter cautioned after a heated exchange:

“We really must remember as professionals we must stay in our lane I will never pronounce as a Sociologist cause I am not a Sociologist ............When we have an opportunity to speak publicly we must be careful of what we say unless it is extremely well informed......”

Dr Shelly Ann Weeks on Homophobia - What are we afraid of?

Former host of Dr Sexy Live on Nationwide radio and Sexologist tackles in a simplistic but to the point style homophobia and asks the poignant question of the age, What really are we as a nation afraid of?

It seems like homosexuality is on everyone's tongue. From articles in the newspapers to countless news stories and commentaries, it seems like everyone is talking about the gays. Since Jamaica identifies as a Christian nation, the obvious thought about homosexuality is that it is wrong but only male homosexuality seems to influence the more passionate responses. It seems we are more open to accepting lesbianism but gay men are greeted with much disapproval.

Dancehall has certainly been very clear where it stands when it comes to this issue with various songs voicing clear condemnation of this lifestyle. Currently, quite a few artistes are facing continuous protests because of their anti-gay lyrics. Even the law makers are involved in the gayness as there have been several calls for the repeal of the buggery law. Recently Parliament announced plans to review the Sexual Offences Act which, I am sure, will no doubt address homosexuality.

Jamaica has been described as a homophobic nation. The question I want to ask is: What are we afraid of? There are usually many reasons why homosexuality is such a pain in the a@. Here are some of the more popular arguments MORE HERE

Promised conscience vote was a fluke from the PNP ........

SO WE WERE DUPED EH? - the suggestion of a conscience vote on the buggery law as espoused by Prime Minister (then opposition leader) in the 2011 leadership debate preceding the last national elections was a dangling carrot for a dumb donkey to follow.

Many advocates and individuals interpreted Mrs Simpson Miller's pronouncements as a promise or a commitment to repeal or at least look at the archaic buggery law but I and a few others who spoke openly dismissed it all from day one as nothing more than hot air especially soon after in February member of parliament Damian Crawford poured cold water on the suggestion/promise and said it was not a priority as that time. and who seems to always open his mouth these days and revealing his thoughts that sometimes go against the administration's path.

I knew from then that as existed before even under the previous PM P. J. Patterson (often thought to be gay by the public) also danced around the issue as this could mean votes and loss of political power. Mrs Simpson Miller in the meantime was awarded a political consultants' democracy medal as their conference concludes in Antigua.

War of words between pro & anti gay activists on HIV matters .......... what hypocrisy is this?

A war of words has ensued between gay lawyer (AIDSFREEWORLD) Maurice Tomlinson and anti gay activist Dr Wayne West (supposed in-laws of sorts) as both accuse each other of lying or being dishonest, when deception has been neatly employed every now and again by all concerned, here is the post from Dr West's blog

This is laughable to me in a sense as both gentleman have broken the ethical lines of advocacy respectively repeatedly especially on HIV/AIDS and on legal matters concerning LGBTQ issues

The evidence is overwhelming readers/listeners, you decide.

Fast forward 2015 and the exchanges continue in a post from Dr Wayne West: Maurice Tomlinson misrepresents my position on his face book page and Blog 76Crimes

Tomlinson's post originally was:

Urgent Need to discuss sex & sexuality II

Following a cowardly decision by the Minister(try) of Education to withdraw an all important Health Family Life, HFLE Manual on sex and sexuality

I examine the possible reasons why we have the homo-negative challenges on the backdrop of a missing multi-generational understanding of sexuality and the focus on sexual reproductive activity in the curriculum.

Calls for Tourism Boycotts are Nonsensical at This Time

(2014 protests New York)

Calling for boycotts by overseas based Jamaican advocates who for the most part are not in touch with our present realities in a real way and do not understand the implications of such calls can only seek to make matters worse than assisting in the struggle, we must learn from, the present economic climate of austerity & tense calm makes it even more sensible that persons be cautious, will these groups assist when there is fallout?, previous experiences from such calls made in 2008 and 2009 and the near diplomatic nightmare that missed us; especially owing to the fact that many of the victims used in the public advocacy of violence were not actual homophobic cases which just makes the ethics of advocacy far less credible than it ought to be.

Violence & venom force gay Jamaicans to hide

a 2009 Word focus report where the history of the major explosion of homeless MSM occurred and references to the party DVD that was leaked to the bootleg market which exposed many unsuspecting patrons to the public (3:59), also the caustic remarks made by former member of Parliament in the then JLP administration.

The agencies at the time were also highlighted and the homo negative and homophobic violence met by ordinary Jamaican same gender loving men.

The late founder of the CVC, former ED of JASL and JFLAG Dr. Robert Carr was also interviewed.

At 4:42 that MSM was still homeless to 2012 but has managed to eek out a living but being ever so cautious as his face is recognizable from the exposed party DVD, he has been slowly making his way to recovery despite the very slow pace.

What to do if you are attacked (News You Can Use)

First, be calm: Do not panic; it may be very difficult to maintain composure if attacked but this is important.

Try to reason with the attacker: Establish communication with the person. This takes a lot of courage. However, a conversation may change the intention of an attacker.

Do not try anything foolish: If you know outmaneuvering the attacker is impossible, do not try it.

Do not appear to be afraid: Look the attacker in the eye and demonstrate that you are not fearful.

This may have a psychological effect on the individual.

Emergency numbers

The police 119

Kingfish 811

Crime Stop 311

Steps to Take When Contronted or Arrested by Police

a) Ask to see a lawyer or Duty Council

b) Only give name and address and no other information until a lawyer is present to assist

c) Try to be polite even if the scenario is tensed) Don’t do anything to aggravate the situation

e) Every complaint lodged at a police station should be filed and a receipt produced, this is not a legal requirement but an administrative one for the police to track reports

f) Never sign to a statement other than the one produced by you in the presence of the officer(s)

g) Try to capture a recording of the exchange or incident or call someone so they can hear what occurs, place on speed dial important numbers or text someone as soon as possible

h) File a civil suit if you feel your rights have been violated. When making a statement to the police have all or most of the facts and details together for e.g. "a car" vs. "the car" represents two different descriptions

j) Avoid having the police writing the statement on your behalf except incases of injuries, make sure what you want to say is recorded carefully, ask for a copy if it means that you have to return for it

What to do

a. Make a phone call: to a lawyer or relative or anyone

b. Ask to see a lawyer immediately: if you don’t have the money ask for a Duty Council

c. A Duty Council is a lawyer provided by the state

d. Talk to a lawyer before you talk to the police

e. Tell your lawyer if anyone hits you and identify who did so by name and number

f. Give no explanations excuses or stories: you can make your defense later in court based on what you and your lawyer decided

g. Ask the sub officer in charge of the station to grant bail once you are charged with an offence

h. Ask to be taken before a justice of The Peace immediately if the sub officer refuses you bail

i. Demand to be brought before a Resident Magistrate and have your lawyer ask the judge for bail

j. Ask that any property taken from you be listed and sealed in your presence

Cases of Assault:An assault is an apprehension that someone is about to hit you

The following may apply:

1) Call 119 or go to the station or the police arrives depending on the severity of the injuries

2) The report must be about the incident as it happened, once the report is admitted as evidence it becomes the basis for the trial

3) Critical evidence must be gathered as to the injuries received which may include a Doctor’s report of the injuries.

4) The description must be clearly stated; describing injuries directly and identifying them clearly, show the doctor the injuries clearly upon the visit it must be able to stand up under cross examination in court.

5) Misguided evidence threatens the credibility of the witness during a trial; avoid the questioning of the witnesses credibility, the tribunal of fact must be able to rely on the witness’s word in presenting evidence

6) The court is guided by credible evidence on which it will make it’s finding of facts

7) Bolster the credibility of a case by a report from an independent disinterested party.

Sexual Health / STDs News From Medical News Today


CVM TV carried a raid and subsequent temporary blockade exercise of the Shoemaker Gully in the New Kingston district as the authorities respond to the bad eggs in the group of homeless/displaced or idling MSM/Trans persons who loiter there for years.

Question is what will happen to the population now as they struggle for a roof over their heads and food etc. The Superintendent who proposed a shelter idea (that seemingly has been ignored by JFLAG et al) was the one who led the raid/eviction.
