Nice!!!

Saturday, July 19th 2014

Great topic, great lesson, great teacher! You’re the best =D

Sunday, July 20th 2014

U r awesome Ronnie! In my country if I ask somebody “Are you gay?” and if he is not he would kill me :))It’s just a joke. But seriously, if I ask this question, that person would act rudely. They think asking this question it’s kind a humiliation. So, if anybody plan to come in my country I strongly recommend DO NOT ask this question from anybody.
P.S I have respect for all genders.

Sunday, July 20th 2014

    you are quite right

    Tuesday, April 21st 2015

Great video as usual! Thank you for bringing all those topics that relate to Canadian life and culture. All your videos are very interesting and helpful!

I enjoy your teaching so much. Thank you^^

Sunday, July 20th 2014

I got 86% that I didn’t answer ‘trnasgender’. I didn’t confuse it with ‘transformer’.
Thank you for giving me a good information. Honestly It is very weird to say LGBT in public in my society. Culture is very different depending on what coutries are.

Sunday, July 20th 2014

Thank you Ronnie! You are right! There are a lot of gay people all over the world! I am one of them))) Thanks for fun!

Sunday, July 20th 2014

Hi,
very good lesson Ronnie.
I think the correct answer of :
“What do you call a person who is born with either male or female parts but does not identify with that gender?”
is hermaphroditic.
thank again.

Sunday, July 20th 2014

Thanks a lot

Sunday, July 20th 2014

Could you make friend with me ????

Sunday, July 20th 2014

    Are you gay?…:)))

    Saturday, August 9th 2014

Hey Ronnie…nice lesson..:)
I have a question..Gay also means happy..right..? So why isn’t it used in that context…??

Sunday, July 20th 2014

    Society is changing day by day, and, in my opinion, it would be better to say ‘happy’ instead of ‘gay’, because some words becoming old and people would not understand what you actually mean. Imagine the situation: one person tells ”oh, look, he looks so gay”(in meaning of happy), and another one is amazed ”no way! does he play for another team?” :)))
    I just want to say that be careful with the words that you’re using in your speech.
    Sorry for my mistakes, if I have ones. Best regards to you

    Sunday, July 20th 2014

      Hmm…we have to be careful while using such words…They may create confusion sometimes:)
      Thanks inspiramentum

      Tuesday, July 22nd 2014

Sunday, July 20th 2014

Very good, this is my first video i like it, is very easy to understand.

Sunday, July 20th 2014

Judging and misjudging is relatively normal in our society. Judging and misjudging on purpose is something completely else though.
That’s why emancipation is more important these days.
Anyways… nice lesson, thank you Ronnie, didn’t expect anything less of you. : ]

Unfortunately, in Russia it is dangerous to say that you are gay. Many people are killed because of it. I am bisexual, but I hide this fact.

Monday, July 21st 2014

    It is lie. I never heard that in our country someone are killed because of sexual orientation.

    Thursday, July 24th 2014

      You are happy)

Nice lesson Ronnie. Thanks a lot. Finally I got the meaning of the word “queer”. I was pretty sure it was related with “queen”, “drag queen” something related with the lesbian vocabulary by the way!

Monday, July 21st 2014

Excelent class, but I´ve heard that lesbians also called gays.

Monday, July 21st 2014

Thank you very much.

Monday, July 21st 2014

Monday, July 21st 2014

Thank you very much Ronnie :) I just love your sense of humor! and I learn a lot with you <3 in my country you can say that you're gay, but some religions will just hate you (without even know you), and this makes me sad =/ but I hope that someday it will change.

Tuesday, July 22nd 2014

Something strange. Many thanks

Tuesday, July 22nd 2014

Nowadays gays are everywhere, on TV , fashion, politic, advertisement…
In Italy if you are not a gay you are nobody at the moment.
I think that we, heterosexuals, should fight for our rights!!!

Allah ( God ) has created the humans as two different kinds ( male & female ) , so the males just love females , Any words other than this is considered abnormal, and any person practicing homosexuality is suffering congenital problem

Tuesday, July 22nd 2014

    I asked God. He told me you were wrong about this, Hamy. Please go pray about it and tell me what happens.

      All religions prohibit sodomy

      Wednesday, July 23rd 2014

        The main issue about the arguments that were brought up is that they are (logical) fallacies. A fallacy is a statement or an argument based on a false or invalid inference (according to http://www.thefreedictionary.com/fallacy ). In order to make this clear, let us analyze the statements made (or words used) so far.

        “Allah (God) […]”. Here is the first fallacy: appeal to faith (http://www.logicallyfallacious.com/index.php/logical-fallacies/31-appeal-to-faith). Faith, by definition, relies on a belief that does not rest on logic or evidence. This is why such argument is not valid. Do not misunderstand me, though: you should be (because it is a fundamental human right) completely free to hold any kind of beliefs you wish (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_religion), but the same should also be true for every one else (and they may not hold the same beliefs you do). Besides, the concept of freedom of belief also includes the freedom to change religions or simply not to follow any religions (just so you know, not following a religion does not imply not holding beliefs or moral values). Unfortunately, some religions (and countries where these religions are predominant) do not allow this freedom, but it is something worth fighting for.

        “[…] the humans as two different kinds (male & female), so the males just love females”. Moving on to the second fallacy: non sequitur (http://www.logicallyfallacious.com/index.php/logical-fallacies/137-non-sequitur). The fact that humans are born as either men or women does not imply that they could not love (or simply have sex with) people of the same gender. Even if you could find a passage of the Quran (from your arguments, I presume you are Muslim) that explicitly said what you stated, that still would not be a valid argument (since it would be an appeal to faith).

        “Any words other than this is considered abnormal […]”. Considering the definitions of abnormal as “Not typical, usual, or regular; not normal; deviant” (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/abnormal) and “natural” as “usual or expected” (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/natural), this is our third fallacy: appeal to nature (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Appeal_to_nature , http://www.logicallyfallacious.com/index.php/logical-fallacies/37-appeal-to-nature). The fact that non-heterosexual relationships are not usual (because the majority of people is heterosexual) is not enough to imply that such relationships should be unacceptable. On a side note, you (as a Muslim) are also a part of a minority (considering the whole world), since there is a majority (31.5%) of Christians (http://www.pewforum.org/2012/12/18/global-religious-landscape-exec/).

        “[…] any person practicing homosexuality is suffering congenital problem”. I have not detected any fallacy here, but it is still worth discussing (because it is a quite strong statement, and you did not provide evidences to support it).

        As for the congenital (present from birth) part, there are indeed studies to support it (some news are in http://scitechdaily.com/homosexuality-might-develop-in-the-womb-due-to-epigenetic-changes/ ; the full article is in http://www.jstor.org/stable/10.1086/668167 ). However, from legal and social standpoints, the innateness of sexual orientation is simply not relevant (http://isites.harvard.edu/icb/icb.do?keyword=k78405&pageid=icb.page414413).

        As for the “problem” part, it is necessary to define what you meant by “problem”. Assuming you used “problem” as a synonym for “drawback” (disadvantage), I would partially agree (biologically speaking) with you. Since homosexual individuals would not reproduce as easily as heterosexuals (but it is still possible by means such as artificial insemination), it is expected that the former would have lower Darwinian fitness (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fitness_(biology)). Nevertheless, the story is a bit different when it comes to bisexuals: not only they are able to reproduce in the same way heterosexuals do, but also are able to make strong social bonds with individuals of the same gender, thus raising their chances of surviving and reproducing (a part of this discussion – regarding the case of animals – is here: http://www.yalescientific.org/2012/03/do-animals-exhibit-homosexuality/).

        On the other hand, if you used “problem” as a synonym for “disease” (or illness), there is a professional consensus (among psychiatrists) that homosexuality represents a variation of human sexuality without any intrinsically harmful effect on the health of those concerned or those
        close to them (reference: the report ” ‘cures’ for an illness that does not exist”, available on http://www.paho.org/hq/index.php?option=com_docman&task=doc_view&gid=17703&Itemid=2057 and the website http://psychology.ucdavis.edu/faculty_sites/rainbow/html/facts_mental_health.html).

        “All religions prohibit sodomy”. This is another appeal to faith, but let us go further. In first place (according to http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/sodomy), sodomy means “anal or oral copulation with a member of the same or opposite sex” (which is something broader than homosexualism alone, but let us restrict to it). Not all religions are against it. Some support it (such as Wicca, Satanism and Unitarian Universalism), whereas some others have no official (or neutral) position (such as Hinduism or Tibetan Buddhism) on this issue (http://www.pewforum.org/2012/12/07/religious-groups-official-positions-on-same-sex-marriage/, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_and_homosexuality).
        Another reason why the existence (or inexistence) of religions that support it is not important is that many people are free to live according to their beliefs or needs, even creating religions which suit them (if they want so). An emblematic example of this is the secession of the English Church from Rome (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_England#Secession_from_Rome). As I said before (just as a reminder), not following any religion should also be an option (considering the freedom of belief).

        Summing up, it would be a good idea to check the soundness and scope of your arguments. It also a good practice to provide reliable references (peer-reviewed articles published on high impact factor journals are best) and evidences to support your claims (especially when they are general). Lastly, you should try to make your ideas as clear as possible (avoiding ambiguous terms, for example).

          …Normally I don’t let through extremely long comments, but I’ll make an exception for this excellently written reply!

          Friday, July 25th 2014

          @pedro

          That guy won’t read it anyway. Not saying about understanding.

          Saturday, July 26th 2014

          @zielonosiwy
          Unfortunately, I guess you are right…However, I take solace in that fact that at least two people (you and the EngVid moderator) have read it. Thanks for taking the time to do so.

          Sunday, July 27th 2014

          maybe i can’t speak English clearly like you !!! but i have open mind and Common sense that make me believe you are wrong , Allah has created the humans for reproduction and reconstruction of the universe , It is not for this aberrant practices dirty .
          ask any sane person he will answer you clearly that ( you have a problem ) , Perhaps a medical problem or mental .

          Saturday, July 26th 2014

          I thought I had already addressed the core of this discussion, but let me go even further (unfortunately I am not a philosopher, so I probably will not go as far as I would like to).

          Firstly, I would like you to read my last reply carefully. If you do so, you will see that I never said that you were right or wrong. I just said that the arguments you used are not convincing, from a logical standpoint. Actually (assuming the existence of “God” and “hell”), it is perfectly possible that there exists a God that will send all of LGBTs to hell because this God judges them as sinners (or – using your words – “dirty”, “aberrant” or whatever). As I said before, you are completely free to believe in anything you want. However, if you want to convince other people of your beliefs, you can’t use (your own) beliefs as arguments (that would be both an appeal to faith – http://www.logicallyfallacious.com/index.php/logical-fallacies/31-appeal-to-faith – and a circular reasoning – http://www.logicallyfallacious.com/index.php/logical-fallacies/61-begging-the-question).

          On the other hand, I haven’t said whether I support or not the LGBT cause, so you can’t say I am right or wrong. However, in case you are questioning the logical soundness of my reasoning, I would be glad to discuss about it (but you need to present some reasonable arguments and evidences in order to make that discussion make sense and take place). I have not told you my personal opinion on this issue, I have just analyzed the validity of your arguments. By the way, please allow me to do it once more.

          “[..]i have open mind and Common sense that make me believe you are wrong”. Here is our fourth fallacy: appeal to common belief (http://www.logicallyfallacious.com/index.php/logical-fallacies/23-appeal-to-common-belief). The fact that many people of a particular group believe that something is true is not enough to imply that it is true. As for the “wrong” part, please take a look at the previous paragraph.

          “Allah has created the humans for reproduction and reconstruction of the universe , It is not for this aberrant practices dirty”. Another appeal to faith (“Allah has created…”) followed by another appeal to nature (“[…]aberrant practices […]”). I think I have already discussed both of these fallacies thoroughly enough, but (in case you have not read them yet) it is a good idea to refer to http://www.logicallyfallacious.com/index.php/logical-fallacies/31-appeal-to-faith and http://www.logicallyfallacious.com/index.php/logical-fallacies/37-appeal-to-nature .

          “ask any sane person he will answer you clearly that ( you have a problem ) , Perhaps a medical problem or mental”. I am sorry, but I could not understand who you are claiming to have mental or medical problems (me? LGBTs? Psychiatrists? All of the previous options?). If you think that I have mental problems because I am trying to use logically sound reasoning…well, I do not know what to say. If you think that LGBTs have mental problems, this is something that I have already discussed in my previous reply. Even so, I would advise you (once again) to read the report (written by the World Health Organisation) “Cures For An Illness Which Does Not Exist” (available on http://www.paho.org/hq/index.php?option=com_docman&task=doc_view&gid=17703&Itemid=2057 ).According to it (and I am also saying this once again…), “There is a professional consensus that homosexuality represents a natural variation of human sexuality without any intrinsically harmful effect on the health of those concerned or those close to them. In none of its individual manifestations does homosexuality constitute a disorder or an illness, and therefore it requires no cure. For this reason homosexuality was removed from the relevant systems of classification of diseases several decades ago”. So you see, this is what supposedly sane people are telling me. You could try to argument that psychologists and psychiatrists are generally insane (on a side note, there is an interesting article on this subject on http://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/200909/why-shrinks-have-problems) but, in that case, I guess there would be no sane people left in the world to ask questions to.

          Finally, let us get to the core of this whole discussion (triggered by your previous reply): the concept of truth. As long as we do not agree on using exactly the same concept of truth, we are simply not getting anywhere. As you may have noticed, my concept of truth is, basically, a logical (and objective) one (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Objectivity_(philosophy), http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logical_truth ). You, on the other hand, seem to have a subjective concept of truth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subjectivity). Apparently the debate about truth is a very deep (and fundamental) one (just take a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truth to have an idea), so I do not think that a mere discussion between two individuals is going to settle it (the debate about truth) once and for all. Having said that…I do not know what to say anymore (at least for the time being).

          P.S. (for the EngVid moderator): please excuse me for another longer than usual reply, but it seems to me that this is (or was) a worth discussion.

          Saturday, July 26th 2014

          Someday you will realize that this habit contrary to human nature with which God created by man, and then look to good people; Is there anyone among them gay? Jesus was a man, a believer, and did not practice this act .

          Sunday, July 27th 2014

          And I hope that someday you read my replies…I am questioning your arguments, not your beliefs. I am doing so using an objective (and therefore neutral) concept of truth, which seems to be an appropriate one to be used as a default.

          Sunday, July 27th 2014

          @hamy_alferjany

          1. if your an university teacher with such a level of English, it means your university is VERY WEAK.
          2. having such idiotic opinions also rules you out as a teacher, you should not teach anyone
          3. here where I live in Europe, it is okay to be gay, so is in the USA, Canada or in any civilised country. Arab countries are culturally RETARDED.

          Tuesday, July 29th 2014

          zielonosiwy also you should not teach anyone because You’re a racist !!!!

          Tuesday, July 29th 2014

          Is chastity and good morals mean retardation!!!

          Tuesday, July 29th 2014

          Maybe you’re a Nazi

          Tuesday, July 29th 2014

          Good work Pedro! I think you contributed a lot to made it clear about religion and sexuality!

          Thursday, August 28th 2014

    @hamy alferjany

    I also talked to God and he told me it’s OK to be gay. Maybe God doesn’t want to talk to you and explain you this issue, I don’t know.

    Saturday, July 26th 2014

      BOOM!

      Sunday, July 27th 2014

        Well, we need to stop this discussion. Right now. Neither religion can guide a man to any place. Only us. We’re the change that we want see in the world, not the regression, the pain and we’re not the closed-minded people. We should be friendly, respect and don’t use religious arguments to explain our criticism, if we believe in one God, is good for who believe him. If we don’t believe, good for who don’t believe him. We have not the obligation to believe in a religion. God can be any kind of person in the mind of the people, generally, in my mind He’s the most high of the gods, He shall defend us and He shall respect us, as we’re his people and elected, we aren’t perfect, but divergent, different, and open-minded. Religion isn’t be a fact to judge a person. Homossexualism is not a fact to judge anyone. We can be judged by the law of our countries, a law that respect the Human Rights, firstly as a prove of civilization. We shan’t return to the feudalism, to be judged by a religion, a church or any organization with religious branch. Gays are people, they breathe, speak, eat, walk, they do all the things that we do. I’m a guy who believe in God, I have my faith in the CoE and I don’t use that as an argument. I use my logic and my faith in the human rights, that we can change that every time to construct a future. Not for a regression to the past of the pain. ‘Parce eis Domine!’

Sunday, July 27th 2014

Thanks for this class. It was very funny and interesting!

Sunday, July 27th 2014

Very helpful lesson!

Sunday, July 27th 2014

All the words describing in Ronnie’s lessons for ‘gays’ are correct, but here in UK there are other slangs too.. which I came to realize much later even though I have lived here in since 1985.
Here it goes… ‘bender’ ‘puff’ ‘fairy’ ‘chutney ferett’.
I personally wouldn’t use this language.. I accept them just as human beings and do pass any judgement. It took me a while to understand this due to my traditional beliefs, but over the period of time I changed my thinking and got rid of any traditional discriminatory thoughts. Happy to sit down and have a meal or a drink with gay, lesbian, transgender and even hetrosexuals :-))

Monday, July 28th 2014

    Nice words –your ideas, not the slang words, of course;)

    Thursday, August 28th 2014

      Thank you ‘Green Velvet’ … I’m sure this is not your name…
      What does the Green Velvet means and in relation to what?
      The scribbled image of your icon? does it represents anything?

      Take care!

Hi Ronnie, how are you?
I have been living in Toronto for 5 months and I have been using Engvid (your classes most of the time) and I thought: “Since I’m so close why don’t I try to meet Ronnie in person?”. My time in Toronto has almost expired and I would like to know if it is possible to meet you. Is it? Where can I meet you, and in which school do you teach English? I would really appreciate it if you answer me as soon as you can. Thank you so much and take care.

Monday, August 4th 2014

Hello, speaking of PMS, i just remember one
of your lesson talking about pink taco! but i don’t remember what lesson it is? could you remind me please? thank you

Thursday, August 14th 2014

This is a controversial topic always generates controversy and opinions. I do not know how long we will give more importance than it really is; each with their life. Very well explained the class teacher thanks.

Thursday, August 14th 2014

Great lesson, great teacher! You’re the best
I got 86. Thanks

Tuesday, August 19th 2014

Ir’s good tip
i’m usually think that someon who queer is a man likes man. but this watching lesson. i’m think that differtly gay.

Wednesday, August 20th 2014

thank you

Thursday, August 21st 2014

Fantastic! i love ….

Thursday, August 21st 2014

Yes, great lesson, for vocabulary and tolerance! Especially useful for me.
I knew some words, but I misunderstood them: for example, I thought that “queer” designated a trans. I realize now that it is a “parachute term” to refer to the whole LGBT community.
I ignored some other terms, as “twinkie”.
For the expression “play for the other team”, well I couldn’t see nothing behind a sport competition!
You know, like a child who doesn’t catch the double meaning of things.
Thanks for making lose my innocence! Well, it was time indeed! ;-))

Friday, August 22nd 2014

Tuesday, September 23rd 2014

Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (‭Romans‬ ‭1‬:‭24-32‬ NKJV)

Thursday, September 25th 2014

    Could you answer me: what did Jesus tell us about homosexuals, hookers (like Maria Madalena) and others? I bet you won’t find any disapproving word said by Christ, because He is the love in person. If He is your savior, try to give more from you (help poor people, go to hospitals, hug and kiss your brothers and sisters with real love, make charity). Don’t live as you were living at the time of Old Testament. Live as Christ told us.
    My fraternal feelings!

    Sunday, October 26th 2014

    You ARE ignorant in these things, if you fallow, if you wanna be saved etc you have to follow all those rules, but you have never been given wrights to oppress, hate and judge other people, it is clearly prohibited by the Bible. Live and let others live – that how it should be. Cuz, if you are a priest and you are a gay – this is really horrible, disgusting and not Ok. But if you are just a gay, why must you hide, tremble and fear?

    Tuesday, April 7th 2015

Eternity depends on it! Dear Soul, the Bible declares
that one day you will die and then stand face to face with God to be judged. “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” (Hebrews 9:27) Nothing in your entire life could be more important than being ready for that day, because it will determine whether you will spend eternity in heaven or in hell.

Thursday, September 25th 2014

I love your lessons Ronnie and this is very important to me.
In the fact of the matters if all real gay people in Brazil would say the truth about their sexuality,I suppose that here should be the most gay population in the world, there’s a lot of people hidden it here.

Wednesday, November 26th 2014

“Live and let live”

Ronnie, could you please prepare us a lesson

Continuous?

Thanks in advance. (If you already have delete
this comment, please)

Let’s play ball,people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday, January 6th 2015

I think I made a mistake”…having arguments”
I should have said “Why are you people arguing
about…” Could you tell me what’s the correct
form?”

Tuesday, January 6th 2015

Who can help me to practice Eng especially Gay in class hehe. thanks alot Ronnie you are so nice teacher. Nice to talk with you all new friends :)

Wednesday, January 7th 2015

Twinks are cute. People shuld feel free to express their orientation, regardless whether you’ra gay or not. Those who judge – you’d better look at yourself: are you a decent person to tell others what they should be?

Sunday, January 11th 2015

I’m gay and I’m 12 years old, my mom don’t agree, but I really won’t be happy being with girls. Thanks Ronnie you’re very funny and a very good teacher. You are AMAZING!!!

Thursday, April 2nd 2015

Hi,
I don’t discriminate on LGBT. I just wonder how to recognize them. I’m afraid that I’ll get married a gay ( could be a bear, or even a twinkie)some day in the future. Some gays, they do not come out. They pretend that they’re not. They try to get married for some selfish reasons and then they go out and have affairs. I don’t hate gays but I do really get angry with such these ones.
Please show me how to recognize/realize them!
Thank you a lot!

Wednesday, April 8th 2015

    There isn’t any foolproof way to figure out if someone’s gay! You just have to ask them, ideally some time before you get married. Maybe not like that, though. More politely, like “Are you really sure about this? I don’t want to get married just because it seems like the thing to do.”

    Thursday, April 9th 2015

      well, thanks for your reply.
      Maybe you don’t know that there are some differences between our cultures. In my country, some men (gay) think that it’s their duty to get married to women and have children. because if they don’t they parents will consider it as their unluck to have them as their sons. and they’ll be treated as black sheep. It means that whatever you do, pls get married and have children first. Some strict parents will force their sons to not come out, try to live as men. Some others will allow their sons to have an affair after marry, these are usually people who can’t stop their sons doing things he wants or forced him to do things they want (except for getting married).

      Friday, April 10th 2015

        I understand. It used to be extremely common here, too, in previous generations. (For example, see Alison Bechdel’s comic Fun Home about learning her father was gay and coming out as a lesbian herself.) It’s still common for people to be rejected by their parents for being gay or transgender.

        There’s no quick or easy fix — it takes a long time for a culture to change. It doesn’t help you with your problem right now, but the younger generation is a lot more accepting and laws are changing. So I think there’s reasons to be hopeful that in the years to come, it will get easier for gay people to live openly and not be pressured to get married and have kids.

        Friday, April 10th 2015

      The gays, he himself doesn’t want to lie you. He hides himself and forces himself to get married to a woman just because he want to be good to his parents who he love, respect, and appreciate a lot.

      Friday, April 10th 2015

        You are right.That,s i think too.

        Thursday, May 21st 2015

Sunday, July 19th 2015

    That’s a bit of a personal question, don’t you think?

    Sunday, July 19th 2015

Ronnie said (7:39) that if I want to I can ask (when I`m wondering if someone is :D) :P
But yes, I thought so…It is more like rhetorical question :)
In fact, this is irrelevant, I love Ronnie anyway ;)

Sunday, July 19th 2015

Hi, Ronnie! You’re an excellent teacher. Here in Brazil, the gay population has increased a lot in the last decades. We don’t need to be a GAYDAR to see this. However, they deserve respect. Bye! Júlio César.

Hi,Ronnie
Honestly, I cannot stop smiling even a minute when I watch your video. This lesson is very useful words. It is very good know how to describe each of us in English. Finally, welcome to Thailand – A land of “LGBT”. LOL

Friday, March 25th 2016

    Thursday, April 28th 2016

Hi, Ronnie,I’m Dennis from Taiwan, I have some questions about this video.

I’m pleased to see your video introducing about LGBT, but I think maybe it’s not a good idea to let people ask one another about their sexual orientation or sexual identity whenever they want. I’m afraid that not all gay or transgender people would be comfortable to be asked, especially when gay they are still unaccepted in the society. Asking them the question may put them into danger. That’s why we should think more about it.

I still have another question that, as I know, ‘dyke’ and ‘butch’ is more of lesbian who tend to be more masculine, are these words both suitable for all lesbian? Do we have other slang words that are more possitive, since these two seemed to be negative words?

Wednesday, May 4th 2016

    Ni hao hello man yours faithfully
    You must know the god banned these things How woman married to woman and bloke with bloke
    They will go to the hell and the god will take the revenge of them I advise you to read about Islam
    Best regards

    Wednesday, May 4th 2016
