    Wahala dey o! Chai! BN The two brides? Lmao! Anyways, Caster needs a female cus of her high testosterone hormones. It would be a disaster if she’s married to a man.

    The whole idea of being a lezzie is that you are attracted to women and not men, so why in lezzie relationship is there one who always acts and dresses like a man? Same thing with 2 gay men, one always takes the role of a woman. Confused much??? Kinda defeats the ‘purpose’ doesn’t it!

    And “the two brides”?????

    How you kept a straight face writing that I do not know.

      It could be that one of them identifies more with dressing traditionally “male” than the other. Other times it’s just about what the individual likes wearing, and feels comfortable in.
      Semenya has been dressing “male” since whenever. Even when she tried to look more feminine (to improve her chances in the sporting world amidst all the controversy), it didn’t suit her very well. I’m speaking with regards to documentaries I’ve watched of her.

      Also, there are plenty gay/lesbian relationships where both are very “feminine” or “masculine”. I guess it depends on what each person is attracted to.
      It’s probably the same way there are different shades of men out there. Some are effeminate and some are very butch (from observation).

      What I’ve found is that in situations like this (one butch and one lipstick/femme), the feminine one previously considered herself straight, dating only men, or recognized herself as bisexual but has previously dated mostly men, hence the attraction to a woman who’s sorta like a dude.

    This is what they are trying to make the norm in naija.
    That plan won’t work.

    Bellanaija…… Is that how badly you lack what to upload? If you don’t have proper wedding to put, please don’t put anything. E do you like that. I don’t want anyone telling my kids or loved ones that marrying someone of the same agenda is right.

    Congrats to the superstar and her gorgeous partner. Both are amazingly beautiful with hearts of gold. Haters continue to hate as you have no idea as to what these two have done for the disadvantaged in South Africa. Stop the hatred and jealousy and start loving people for their worth. I was a guest at their wedding and enjoyed every second. This was definitely the ‘perfect wedding’.

    What a glorious ceremony for Bella naija, so Bella naija promotes lesbian wedding in their blog, you guys have lost your moral ethics, is this allowed in the Nigerian constitution?,so Bella naija encourages young nigerian females to embrace lesbianism against all odds. This selfish and negligent act that leads the young Nigerian youth will go far and I plead with Nigerian government to take it up.
