"Liberated women."
What’s this got to do with women’s liberation?

These are two consenting adults engaging in a mutually consensual act in front of other adults.

You have many compatriots who view alcohol consumption as immoral. Does that mean we should close all liquor shops in Lebanon?

The essence of democracy is accepting people’s differences and opinions. When freedom is tailored to suit everyone’s religious beliefs, it can no longer be called freedom.
It’s time Christians and Muslims realized their morals aren’t universal.

    By that logic:

    So long as people are not allowed to make choices, we will never learn how to make the right choices. Theft, murder, torture, etc. shouldn’t be stopped, they should be heavily regulated.

    Don't get me wrong, I am against criminalizing immoral behaviour, for various reasons. I'm simply saying that some people will never learn to make the right choices, because they don't even recognize the existence of right and wrong choices.

    To them, everything is relative and everyone can make up their own definition of right and wrong. This is how they can enjoy their vices while having the semblence of a clear conscience.
    Theft, murder, torture etc... are not the same. You can’t seriuously compare an adult show to murder!

    "Selon un communiqué de l’établissement également publié sur les réseaux sociaux, les faits se sont déroulés à leur insu alors qu’on entend distinctement des personnes protester face au spectacle ou l’on voit une stripteaseuse lécher la poitrine de sa collègue. D’autres scènes explicites de sexe lesbien ont également eu lieu lors de cette soirée.."

    This for the "hypocrisy" guys who can't pull their neurons up from their d***ks.
    The audience was not aware of any sexual behavior. They were there to watch a show probably just dance show (I don't know exactly what is this band) .
    So apparently they were not warned of sexually explicit scenes.
    I remember that when I went to watch Lords of the Dance in Paris long time ago, we were warned that there will be canon sounds.
    Now if the nightclub had warned the audience it probably falls under a special license of activities which it might not have.
    And probably the authorities don't deliver such license.
    So rija2an jame3et el "hypocrisy" zimmoua because indecent behavior is an indecent behavior whether it's sexual in Beirut, or maameltein, or in the gov abusing power or stealing public funds....

    I came looking for updates on the 3itani issue and found this instead lol! I wonder if it's not just a distraction??? Funny how the woman taking the video saw what was coming and was like la2 la2 la2 lol!
    I'm a bit torn, but I voted yes like the vast majority. Interesting we all voted yes :)
    I don't think it was because of homosexuality though, I am not sure about the other venues in maameltein but its usually just women dancing by themselves, but what do I know hehe The only similar thing I have seen was the Crazy Horse when they performed at Casino du Liban, and that show is a peice of ART! As long as you know what you are going to watch and you are an adult, I think we should allow it. Just like prostitution and hashish which can be legalized n better organized/monitored by a certain authority , same as in the west. Then the Arabs will beg us for a visa! Instead of us begging them to come, and which is anyway why they come here in the first place, but at least the state will benefit from the revenues this time n we can make sure the girls get tested etc...
    Anyway I am sure it's a competition issue with other venues, wasta and connections, etc as usual. Didnt theu shut down that famous gay club a few years back (Acid was it?) only to be replaced by a few others?

    Its not about legality. Its fine to have such happenings on the down low, underground and very limited in scope. After all Lebanon has little bit of everything ;)
    Mass marketing them for gulf tourists and google, how about a big fat no.

    You are perfectly right! In the LGBTQ rights thread, I mentioned that homosexuality has become more of a choice and a culture that people tend to embrace (thinking it is part of an evolved society as in the West) even if they are born straight. It is something that has become more acquired than innate. Nightclubs like these are the perfect place to spread this culture. One needs only to see the rate of divorce between heterosexual couples because one of the spouses discovered after many marriage years and many kids that they are gay! One has to oppose this culture, otherwise growing numbers of families are dissolving and societies are drifting towards a new Sodom and Gomorrah!

    Again, I have nothing against the rights of homosexuals whose sexual orientation is innate and whom are helpless (even though I believe that the human will and determination are able to overcome ANYTHING), but the medical statistics often limit their percentage to an average 8 - 10% with a maximum of 15% of people who say they are homosexual. Unfortunately, the percentage of people who claim that they are homosexual is much more than these numbers, and that is due to the fact that it is increasingly learned and acquired as a choice.

    Yalla attack me chabeb!

    I'll pick this part to attack. Spreading lesbian culture to the men who are watching aw kif ? Will the male audience become gay or lesbians ya3ne? :)
    This only spreads some $$$ and the girls ya coked up they might even enjoy it sometimes.
    This is a post just to talk :) Sorry about that but your comments are incoherent with my original post and you are adressing the essence of what I wrote in a very shallow way. I said clearly "nightclubs like these", I don't care about who is there in that specific place and the superficial details that you gave. This is not the point. Pfftttt

    at least some of the people who attended the night club were not aware they were going to be exposed to an explicit sexual act, let alone a homosexual act. this is not acceptable.

    and though i am all for freedom of choice and i am all for understanding the other, there are plenty of ways people can spend a lovely evening without having to put the sexual act itself on a pedestal, and especially without putting the raw sexual acts on a cultural pedestal.

    Dark Angel disapproves.

    This is cirque le soir:


    The event was advertised as such, people in attendance had at least some idea what was waiting for them!

    1. No one chooses to be gay and get discriminated against, certainly not in Lebanon and definitely not when they have any other option, ie if you're bi you're never coming out as bi!

    2. Where are these statistics backing up your claim that people who identify as homosexual are much more numerous than people who are actually born that way?

    3. You're the one who went on the offensive here!

    This contradicts the statement of the club.
    I don't know where and how the ad was put. But one thing is sure if I were the minister of interior لعلّم العصا ع جنابك و جنابهم :D :D

    Beirut is not Qandahar. Why would you want to impose your view of morality on others? If such shows are available to a willing adult audience, shu byez3jak? Shu bi2asser 3a 7ayetak? Trok l 3alam t3eesh jeddo.
