I was trapped on an Amtrak train with him last night - discovered via Twitter. Tried to find him but the train was packed in the club car as everybody was frustrated and buying booze. He was quite funny. His FB pic is of him and his sister and he is fucking adorable.
Really openly gay? His Instagram photos with countless beautiful women seem to attempt to have an "I'm straight" vibe. Photos with two beautiful women with a caption about how lucky he is.
I still believe he's gay but I don't see openly gay.
Ok, he's openly gay in his private life. Maybe in his public life, i.e. social media accounts, he maintains a veneer of ambiguity
I'd still snack on his brown sausage.
I love Hamed Sinno. He is a pretty brave boy too being so open.
Sorry to disappoint but I know Ahmed well and he's straight. I can see how he comes across as gay as he's from the Middle East where guys are naturally warm with other men, combined with his liberal politically correct attitudes about gender politics. Anyone who is dreaming about getting in his pants is just dreaming.
He thinks the Munich Olympics were great, not for the athletic competitions but for the terrorism.
r45, post proof. He appears tres gay. And hot.
R45: er, would a straight man, regardless of how liberal he is, enthusiastically take part in a discussion about the 'top/bottom' dichotomy in the gay community, to the extent of lamenting on air about how 'limiting' such labels are?
R45 is lying. Ahmed is gay. He has a boyfriend named Carlo who lives in Beirut.
And he linked to his friend's blog a few months ago on his Facebook, a blog about life in Beirut, in which she repeatedly referred to him as her "gay friend" or "gay best friend."
It's funny how all the commenters on his instagram think he's straight. Do they have absolutely no gaydar? There is one woman who posts on every picture of him with a woman with the comment: "beautiful couple." It's pretty funny.
I don't know why he bothers to pretend otherwise.
I don't know either R52 and it's kind of annoying. He goes out of his way to make himself appear straight sometimes. I get the impression that it's either an ego thing or he is getting some kind of amusement out of it (ie, trolling us).
R53 how? He is flaming anytime I see him and even in R19 's video. That is not hiding he is turning up the gay in that video.
I saw him leaning against the wall outside my local deli, smoking a cigarette last week. I almost screamed! He is so cute.
I don't know why he's not out publicly but it's obviously something to do with being Middle Eastern. It's really hard for them to come out, there are so many semi-closeted ones even ones that live in America.
It's not like he really tries that hard to hide it anyway.
Okay so maybe this is why he's not out.
"If u want to support them it's up to u! But plz don't link it with the shahada! Islam disapproves of this strongly."
"I totally agree with @altuwaijrisarah this is so offensive to Islam !!"
"That's really offensive. You should respect all religions and their beliefs. Islam is against this and you should respect that."
R68 are you even serious. He's clearly gay. What possible reason do you have to think he's not gay?
Is the BF Arab?
He's gay, people. And out in NYC circles. It's not even a question.
Well his Twitter feed this week since those 3 teenagers were brutally murdered has actually been anti-Israel, which is so incomprehensible to me. I was shocked at how VERY pro-Palestinian he comes across on Twitter.
that face was made for being slapped by my thick dick
r72, it should shock you that Israel has murdered 1523 Palestinian children since 2000, that's one child every 3 days. Even when those murders are caught on camera (as in the video below) the West ignores these horrific crimes because our governments and media are shocking pro-Israel.
R72, he IS Palestinian. Why are you allowed to mourn for any Israeli killed, but a Palestinian is not allowed to do the same? Did he say it was fine that those Israelis were killed? No. But I'm sure as shit that you'd be defending any murder of Palestinians -- that's the difference. Pro-Israeli types can dehumanize Palestinians and justify their murders
Funny how Israel knew who kidnapped those 3, so they arrested 200 and blew up a few homes. Whereas with the Palestinians kid who was tortured then had his body burned, they actually HAVE a license plate, CCTV footage and a car description, yet no Israeli homes have been blown up, hundreds of Israelis haven't been arrested, nothing has been done. Quelle surprise.
Yeah, keep telling us that Apartheid doesn't exist in that hellhole of a country.
Meanwhile, we have kids killed here all of the time and I don't see my politicians getting involved and memorializing them, but they'll do it for three Israeli settlers. Give me a fucking break. Stop telling me AIPAC doesn't have a massive hold over this country.
When Amed Al-Shabin swallowed my cum, he confirmed that he was not gay.
I vote NOT GAY
R70 yeah, and he lives in Beirut. Is friends with the Lebanese band Mashrou' Leila's openly gay (pretty dangerous) lead singer Hamed Sinno. It's interesting it seems like there is kind of a prominent gay community in Beirut. Vast majority are not forthcoming about their sexuality online but don't actually hide it there either. I imagine they are out in their offline lives. Maybe not to family.
Like I'm pretty sure the rest of Mashrou' Leila is gay as well but they haven't addressed it publicly like Hamed has. And he writes the songs, many of which are about gay relationships.
r81, I've already mentioned on this thread that Ahmed's friend Hamed Sinno is not only openly gay but fully accepted by his deeply religious Muslim family. In Islam, all sexuality is private, whether hetero or homo.
He's done it.
Congratulations Ahmed. Very brave step. It can't be easy in a conservative, Muslim culture. Really proud of and happy for you.
R84 I disagree. It could also be a pic with very good friend.
The comment in the photo at R85 makes it clear that he's gay.
Which comment, r87?
"Hamoudi you are a CATCH!"
Also I really didn't want to have to do this because it is actually creepy. It is public but it's still creepy. If there is suddenly more privacy settings we'll know that he's seen this thread and I can be appropriately ashamed.
"only you babe shares and frames things as such. ya mehtel."
At this point only an Arabic speaker can know for sure. They slip in and out of the language whenever they want to keep things within them and just a few.
He is Muslim so he's stupid. He's Palestinian so he doesn't bathe regular. He works with HuffPo so, again he's stupid.
You can tell by his photo he reeks of B.O. Now I know all you 'mos are into eating shit and drinking piss and think it's sex, but it isn't.
R92, thanks for popping by on the way to your serial shooting.
I can't believe you guys didn't know he was gay, have you heard him talk? I wonder what you guys sound like. :P
Ahmed was on the Don Lemon hour tonight. The topic was Violence in the Name of Religion and he debated with Rabbi Shmuley.
I didn't know this guy before seeing him tonight, but he struck me as possibly gay, so I did a search on DL to see if he's been discussed.
Sure enough, I found this thread.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
