One of those Hijras was definitely hot......
I’m surprised that hasn’t been done in the US yet to get bakers to make gay ‘wedding’ cakes.
Yet another reason for me to never want to visit that filthy country....
Hey, wait a minute..... THAT’S not a squeegee!
Uh, is some bizarre freak standing in the middle of traffic, screaming into a bullhorn, really "promoting road safety"????
