      Boys are not dating girls in Japan
      LGBT wants to be marriage legalized throughout the world
      90% women are bi-curious
      Men want to be wearing make-up
      Women are becoming happy with their dildo

      Didn’t the bible say it is shameful for a man to be doing something a woman is doing and vice versa….I’ve forgotten than verse. Issorait sha.

      The world indeed coming to an end! I hope my son won’t one day choose to wear make up and showcase it to the world sha

      ” Boys are not dating girls in Japan”

      LOOOOL. wetin concern us with japan.

      dont worry one of ur kids is going to be gay watch and see. people who hate gay people the most one or more of their children usually end up being gay. thats how life it.

      footballers wear makeup
      basketballers wear make up
      actors wear make up
      governors and presidents wear make up. or u think they dont powder obama’s face before he goes on cnn. whether u like it or not it is make up.

      so because men are wearing makeup the world will come to an end. children are getting killed daily, girls getting raped, disease and war every where, bombs being thrown on innocent peeps, politicians killing innocent citizens etc the world hasnt ended but men decide to wear make up, women are using dildos, ur god will end the world. the god u worship must really have his priorities straight oh.

      besides trousers is for men but women wear them how come u people are not protesting about that one. hypocrites

      Jesus, have mercy on us. Fornicators, adulterers, homosexuals, liars, thieves, rapists, murderers, Pharisees etc REPENT and ask for forgiveness. Christ’s death can not be in vain. He died for our sins, so we can live a life worthy of HIM.

      Men who wear makeup with their mustache look hideous. Why don’t they shave it off first. Anyway, this is all insanity.

    Great we’ve assimilated the controversy for fame culture.

    Even sadder when you realise the makeup made them all uglier.

    Slay all the way!

    It is equality after all,

    On the other hand, if men starts doing make up, they will beat women hands down

    No woman can be as fine as these guys

    Even without makeup, without cream, without rub rub, men still fine not to talk of doing make up

    These girls will be intimidated now

    men wear make up but not like this make up for men should be for covering blemishes on skin and it should be for people who have business behind the camera
    this one

    anciet egyptian men wore make up so I dont know what u are saying.

    so many rock musicians wore make up in the 80’s

    the pope and bishops and priests wear long flowing gowns.

    it is just make up. why are u women threatened? makeup doesnt belong to only u, neither does skirts or hand bags or high heel shoes or hair extensions. besides naija women yemi alade, tiwa savage etc wear male agbada so why shouldn’t men wear female gele.

    we are breaking all gender rules. remeber before the kitchen was a woman’s office now it is no more.

    men wearing makeup is not my cup of tea tho.ladies incase u didnt know all ur make up techniques were invented by drag queens a.k.a men in dresses. the best makeup artists in the world are drag queens. so pls lock up.

      Bruno I think straight men are more threatened by this than women generally, but women comment more on BN.

    • ElessarisElendil

      August 19, 2016 at 6:28 pm

      Threatened kwa??? I wager we’re more threatened by lesbians moving in on our territory. Cross dressers are harmless, they tarnish our good name……but still harmless.

    • Eye roll

      August 19, 2016 at 7:00 pm

      I hope you paused to breathe when leaving these comments. Bruno, you are gay… We get it. You’re always acting crass once the topic is about gays or women. Cool down lmaoo

  23. Idomagirl

    August 19, 2016 at 1:48 pm

    What’s the difference between these guys and the ones dressing like women all over the place in the name of “comedy”?
    For all we know, these ones too are “acting”.

    Its not the men cross dressing that bothers me as much as the adults who see this and think Its okay, its normal, lets all accept this bullshit.

    no wonder many women are single these days cos there are no men left – everybody wants a vagina now.

    Where are the real men left

    • bruno

      August 19, 2016 at 2:25 pm

      ” everybody wants a vagina now.”

      trust me, nobody wants an organ that bleeds once every month.

    • Debbie Ade

      August 19, 2016 at 3:46 pm

      I think this is the most ridiculous comment you have ‘uttered’ on this platform!!! If your mother’s organ did not bleed once a month, you would not have had the privilege to type this utter nonsense. Shame on you Bruno!!!

    August 19, 2016 at 2:29 pm

    I think these dudes slayed…except for the beard and mustache. Would have preferred a clean look

      Slayed??????? We are so over flogging this word. How has he slayed????

    Tbh that’s what women these days look like when they conture and over paint their face. There is absolutely no difference.

    Since when did makeup define sexuality, get educated please. These guys look cute it just shows some girls get their looks from their dad. Makeup artists did wel,l good experiment. I hope it was as much fun as it looked.

    Beautiful!! The guy used by Angie Glamz was da bomb. He owned that parade. I loved watching that show. And I did re watch a couple of times
    MudNigeria model rocks too.
    The gele- I can’t deal.

    Personally I do not find anything attractive bout a guy dressed in drag. Notting religious or deeply spiritual I’ve noting against gays most of them are not flamboyant and are actually attracted to men with similar orientation that actually look male.

  33. Itsjusme

    August 20, 2016 at 11:09 am

    Why should u judge them? They are not murderers, rapists etc That’s why so many women are married to undercover gay men! Bcoz of the society they live in they are unable to express who they really are and how they really feel.

    I’ve seen so many west African men that I spot as gay men but they use their wife or girlfriend To conceal the truth!

  34. Itsjusme

    August 20, 2016 at 11:14 am

    If you are a female and ur husband or boyfriend is asking for u to poke ur fingers in his a hole … He is highly likely to b gay. So keep judging the men that are brave enough to express themselves

    If you live in MD, check the guy at the MAC Counter at Columbia Nordstrom out. With his very elegantly trimmed moustache and facial hair, na so he go nack makeup pem-pem-pem! I don taya!
