    I'll be honest here. I think they look really good. It's the facial hair. I wish I could grow such fine facial hair.

    Who thought that Right Said Fred, of all things, would still be so relevant today?

    I admit that the first one does have a cute smile.
    However, nope not for me.
    I don't like body/facial hair.

    Tbqh, I didn't expect this from Saudi Arabia ._.

    I'm going to agree with what the majority is saying -

    I'm very secure in my heterosexuality, so I've got no problem saying that those guys are in fact not bad looking at all.

    Those are very handsome men.

    On a side note: one should be able to recognize a good looking person, regardless of gender. If that man is handsome, I'll say so, regardless of how straight I am. It's just a matter of the superficial and absolutely nothing more.

    I wonder if the guys got some sort of legal document, a ruling or a citation or anything in writing that they can frame and put on a wall. "I am officially too hot."

    But seriously, that guy is very pretty.

    Sorry to disappoint you but this is not true.

    1- I'm from Saudi Arabia.
    2- I know several people (one of them is a relative) and they all say this is not true. The thing about the religious police trying to escort the female singer out is true though. (But they couldn't, instead the religious police were escorted out by the military for disturbing the festival, ha!)
    3- The only news site reporting this is emirates247.com and they have this weird "my country is better than yours" attitude.

    May I take a moment of your time and tell you more about Saudi Arabia?
    As a Saudi myself, this festival is the very celebration of slavery we and everyone with a brain would be against.
    Many of pure blood-middle region citizens look practically the same due to consanguinity, they're full of hair and are constantly given money for being kiss-asses.
    Other forms of Arabs (even mixed blood Saudis) are closest thing to slaves for the Royal Family and this is a celebration dedicated to the "hard work" they're doing to keep is under their influence.

    As for the deported Emiratis, some people might have realized they looked fugly in comparison and had to take action

    I deleted the posts about gay comments, this is not the place to criticize, joke or try to enforce one's sexuality by psychologically analyzing user's comment.
    Who care who is gay, straight, bi, or nothing? let people think and say what they want whithout the fear of being cataloged.

    Lol i read this news on MSN page i think two days ago.. Well, in the context of the case, religious authorities have the right and duty to do so, and a provocative attitude with self-worshipping falling quite clearly on the sinful side.
