15 Students Suspended For…Plucking Their Eyebrows?

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayWacky, Tacky & True

It you're a straight dude who plucks his unibrow, you might be gay, according to a high school principal at a school in Matamoros, Mexico.

15 male students were suspended for plucking their eyebrows because trying to look nice is "unique to women or youth with a homosexual tendency."

Really?

So straight guys are just supposed to be ugly?

The action has garnered the outraged attention of several groups, including the Tamaulipan Youth Institute (Itjuve). Their director, Efraín Hernández, said, "No one can be denied the right to enter an institution simply because they look different to the rest of the alumni or because they decided to make a change in their person. We clearly see a discrimination that is worrisome since it is a center that shapes individuals which is not in the best of hands."

The State Association of Family Parents also sides with the Itjuve, and plans on submitting complaints to the State Commission of Human Rights.

Aren't there better things to be doing in school?

Like - oh we don't know - teaching tolerance?

    Gays wax their eyebrows when they wax their pubs. Plucking hurts too much.
    Because Mexican women have mustaches too, they want the men to have a unibrow to tell them apart.

    This is ridiculous. More men should be plucking their unibrow!



  58. 58

    Apparently they haven't heard of Metrosexuality.



  59. 59

    Re: LettyB WISHES YOU A MERRY X-MAS! – they probably all pluck their eyebrows and keep it a secret - you know, "don't ask, don't tell"..



  60. 60

    None should be denied education because the way they look, it's a harmless fashion statement. Mexico sadly is going through a lot of shit right now with all the violence from all the drug cartels and now even the church has it's own cartel. Can Mexico have a rest?

    In the other hand as a gay man myself, I don't like the overplucked eyebrows. Sorry, I only tolerate the look on Mr. Spock, but on a date? Fuck that. Some people over do it. I like the masculine bushy and groomed, also you don't have to look like Frida Khalo. But some gay guys just can stay the fuck away from the eyebrows until they are almost bald in the forehead.



  61. 61

    I hate Mexicans and Mexico.



  62. 62

    Re: JaiMatthew
    And Mexicans probably hate your honky ass too =)



  63. 63

    Sounds like my Privite school. a guy got suspended for not shaving his face…



  64. 64

    I KNOW ALOT OF GUYS THAT PLUCK THERE EYE BROWS AND THERE TOTALLY STRAIGHT! THIS IS SUCH A STUPID STATEMENT. IF ANYTHING WAXING IS MORE FEMININE BECAUSE IT SHAPES IT WAY MORE. TWEEZING IS JUST CLEANING IT UP.



  65. 65

    Re: Robz – then, come to Mexico!

    jajajajaja Matamoros made it to Perez Hilton!!! yei for my city and my macho men

    Re: Sweetpiece says Deck the Halls! – I do, but if my hubby ever does, he is hittin' the road!!! :)



  68. 68

    Crazy shit, why does he care? So what if they are gay or not - don't worry about people plucking their eyebrows, start worrying about how to solve your Mexico poverty problems. Geez. AND some men need it bad - better than have a connectobrow or caterpillars for eyebrows!!



  69. 69

    My Mexican friend has told me that many Latins raise their sons to be "Feo, Fuerte, y Formal" or try to aspire to the ideal. Vanity, silliness, improper manners are not qualities Mexican traditionalists want to see in their young men.



  70. 70

    omg thats sooo not kool



  71. 71

    Re: ViewFromHere
    Lol wow I thought it was more of the dad's deal not the mom, in most Mexican homes the woman has no say as to how to raise the kids really. Thank God I married me a white boy with an open mind and great parenting skills =)

    oh hellz to the no.



  74. 74

    That's weird because a lot of Latino gangsters shave or pluck their eyebrows. Are you sure it's about gayness? Either way, it seems kind of hypocritical.



  75. 75

    Why the hell would straight guys pluck their brows at school, anyways? I don't get it.
    Usually, the straight ones wouldn't want to be known for plucking them in the first place.



  76. 76

    Oh, man! that is sooooooo fucking ridiculous!!



  77. 77

    Whatever, Mexico is a little bit chauvinistic, yeah, maybe a lot.And somewhat homophobic, but Perez, seriously do a little research before saying they nead to teach tolerance, because at least some states in Mexico and Mexico city ALLOW GAY MARRIAGE.
    Unlike the state where you live.

    So please, just… … I don't know, do a bit of research before you open your mouth or type some words.



  78. 78

    WHAT THE FUCK? THAT PRINCIPAL WOULDN'T LIKE ME BECAUSE I PLUCK STRAIGHT GUYS EYEBROWS FOR THEM BEFORE I GOT DOWN ON THEIR FAT COCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Mexican Beauty Queen Arrested in Gun-Filled Truck, Police Say

    Check it on fox

    Mexicans are bad 'mkay



  81. 81

    i know quite a few guys who pluck/shave thier unibrow. how is it even okay to suspend them even if they WERE gay?
    i hope they all arch their eyebrows just to piss everybody off.



  82. 82

    oh please…my very straight brother (who btw is the biggest manwhore i know) plucks his eyebrows like 24/7



  83. 83

    Mi Matamoros querido nunca te puedo olvidar! Perez wrote about my city.
    Too bad it had to be dumb shit like this. Oh well.



  84. 84

    As a hairstylist, all the guys who get their hair cut with me (straight or gay) clean their brows up… Most guys do, but lots won't EVER admit it because that may imply they care about their looks… this article is silly & that principle is just insecure…no big deal though, lots of people are. I couldn't imagine living life afraid.



  85. 85

    you pluck chickens- you Tweeze eyebrows!



  86. 86

    No wonder Prop 8 passed. There are so many stupid close minded people in this country.



  87. 87

    Totally love you Perez, but don't teach tolerance. Teach peaceful co-existence. Polly Anna, I know, but it would be nice…



  88. 88

    What's wrong with men caring about their appearance? That's not a gay thing. And even if it was, it's wrong to persecute gays like that!



  89. 89

    wow that is sad the school needs to be talked to about that kind of stuff



  90. 90

    Okay, first of all kids should not be denied the right to learn because of their grooming habits. That's like suspending a student for having a bad hair day or forgetting to eat breakfast. Why would a dick principal waste his/her time by suspending a group of children for plucking the eye brows. Shouldn't these intolerant fucks be taking care of all the guns and violence that has been brought into the school, instead of suspending kids for this. What a bunch of fucking assholes.



  91. 91

    whatever!!…



  92. 92

    Oh, please. After everything is said and done, the board of education is gonna force the douche principal to let the boys take their missed finals whether he wants to or not. I highly doubt there is anything in the middle school's regulations that even mentions eyebrow plucking, so getting suspended for it is a no-go. If he tries to maintain the suspension on those grounds he will have to suspend all the girls too. THAT is how it works here. Either everyone is allowed or nobody is. As for Matamoros being a homophobic town, that's totally laughable. My sister had a bunch of friends in high school who were openly gay and the school didn't give a rat's ass. And by the way, Matamoros belongs to the state of Tamaulipas, which is a state that allows gay marriage. Sure, you have to jump thru a shitload of hoops, but if you don't mind the paperwork and bureaucracy, you can totally do it.

    P.S. Born and raised in Matamoros… And BTW, the whole 'drug wars' thing, is actually not even remotely as bad as the media portrays it.



  93. 93

    Martin Scorcese should pluck.



  94. 94

    Re: incognita

    you're so right! i live just across the border and i think people exaggerate so much. the situation is not really that bad, especially when you compare it to reynosa or valle hermoso.. theres a load of gays in matamoros too, nobody's homophobic around here anymore besides the old people.



  95. 95

    There are so many gay/bi guys in Mexico. They, like many other latin countries belive if you're the top you aren't necessarily gay. Only the one who takes it is gay. If you have sex with women you are straight. So they can pretend. Weird.



  96. 96

    That is one of the dumbest things i have heard. Who gives a shit if they gay or stright they
    are not hurting anyone
