As a proud wearer of 3 Earrings, numerous signet and sovereign rings..and a very tasty identity bracelet..do any other EFLers in this region get stick from students about their choice of physical decoration?

My lads...a bit dim and culturally misunderstood seem to think that wearing gold= being a raving woofter....!

It's taken several weekends of overdoing the R&R in Bahrain to finally convince them otherwise!

I'm guessing that you're probably male. In this part of the world, wearing (yellow) gold is a no-no for men, silver is the preferred color. For women, of course, gold is the only thing to wear. If it's any consolation, it doesn't really matter what gender you are, students always comment on what you're wearing, hairstyles, nail polish, jewelry, etc, and are never reluctant to give their opinion. It's far more interesting than writing technical reports or learning the 3rd conditional.

Gold and silk are prohibited for men but not for women, according to the followers of the one true faith.

Woman.......NO.

Infidel.........due to my large collection of Jane Fonda Workout videos...almost certainly.

Nancy Boy.....NEVER....!

I might look like a manly version of Julian Clary but that doesn't mean i don't like chasing the skirt!!!

You Scot47 through the undeniably fey tone of your increasingly limp wristed postings remind me of a bloke called Gay Gordon that i once worked in a shop with...!
Are you he..or are you just a complete pansy !!

Hey Scot....why don't you come over to mine...i don't fancy yours...might get my legs blown off nipping down to the shops for some post coital ciggies......come to Doha..where we can recline in my luxurious apartment .....glow appealingly at each other in the sensually dimmed lighting and talk about Clause 4 (or whatever it was) whilst listening to my collection of Jimmy Sommerville and Joan Armatrading CD's.....!!!

I'm game if you are ...Big Boy!!!

Ah, the Middle East, where romance blooms in the desert wastes, where kindred spirits can explore spiritual oneness while engaging in erotic dalliance. Shades of 1001 Nights - my blessings upon you both. May your
amatory rendezvous fulfill all of your concupiscent anticipations.
Regards,
John

Dear scot47,
But what she doesn't know won't hurt her. Besides, you have a duty to your gender to uphold the time-honored Double Standard.

So guys - a woman for duty but a boy for pleasure? A time-honoured and widespread tradition all around the Mediterranean.

But Boy Wonder - it's a bit of a leap of the imagination to choose Scot47 - don't you think?
