Gigi was born male but her passport has been updated and refers to her as a female. Airport police claim that her passport depicts her as a male, although Gigi says this is not true.

TMZ also explains that the “imitation of women by men” is illegal in Dubai, and violators face up to a year in jail.

Gigi is currently trying to leave the country but airport officials are still holding her passport.

    But if a muslim male uses the niqab to create an act of terror that is fine.

    Unless Gigi was able to change all those pesky XY chromosomes into XX, you keep referring to him using the wrong pronoun.

    And it’s that culture of violent intolerance immigration is bringing to the West.

    The edgelords in the comments here have nothing on what the shariards would do.

  • Pam Rugtiv

    Folks–You need to know these things b4 you travel.

  • Ichabod

    Good. this “trans-gendered” person decided to force themselves and their perversion into another country and that country threw him in jail.
    He know he could be arrested and thrown in jail, but he thought and probably still thinks people will come to his rescue, you know, “human rights” and all.
    The extreme homosexual community (that includes all LGBT persons) are forcing their ways on everybody in this country, and now want to try and force the rest of the world to submit to their perverse lifestyle choices? Boy, are they in for a big surprise!

    And YES, I referred to him with a male pronoun because he was born a male and regardless of cosmetic changes, he is still a male. Just check his chromosomes.

  • Buckeye RUSSELL

    The man is a idiot. Maybe while he is in jail for a year he can also become a transgendered sheep or goat and give his cell mates a little action at night….. BAAA BAAAA….

    how is she imitating a woman? Arab women don’t dress like that, do they? It would be nice if bigots let their own women imitate women for a change. >:(

  • AndYouWillDeal

    I’m confused, Will Smith told us Dubai was proof Islam is so progressive…

  • AK

    oh if you don’t know.. before a while emirates men attack a transgender in Thailand :)

  • Lordoomer

    The right pronoun. He has no uterus. It’s a man with a horribly mutilated dick and there is nothing you or any surgeon can do about it. Live with it, there are things that cannot be changed, and sex/gender are some of those.

  • Lordoomer

    Will Smith is an asshole if he said that.

  • Lordoomer

    He’s imitating women from the free world you dumbass retro stone aged value mindblasted brainwashed puppet.

  • Moldy_Crow

    Can’t wait to see how much this will be ignored by west hating SJWs

  • Ally

    I feel sorry for you. Someday, all this hate you put out is going to come back and eat your sorry a.s.s.

  • drofla

    Who’s forcing their ways on everybody? Last time I checked people were only fighting for the basics: The right to walk down the street without being harassed or assaulted for being different to you.

    It’s perfectly OK to force your “Ways” on everybody else is it?

  • Shella

    Angelica has stone aged values?! Ohhhhh, because she picked on the Dubai bigots. Now I get it. & see, I specified the Dubai bigots, so you didn’t think I was talking to you. Doubt you’ll get that…

  • Shella

    So someone without a uterus is not a woman? Good to know your terminology. And someone without a brain like you? Sex/gender CAN be changed. Being born brainless sadly can’t.

  • Shella

    I see all the knuckledraggers are out in full force. Sad, but expected!

  • Ichabod

    So tell me, why is speaking the TRUTH “hate” or”hate speech”?
    Tell me how me stating the obvious, that he is a MAN even though he wishes he were a woman, is hate?
    Tell me how me stating my opinion is any different or of less value than your opinion?
    Oh, forgot, you are a Liberals, and anything or anyone you disagree with is a hater and intolerant.
    I forget that you Liberals feel you are more “enlightened” then the rest of us who use rational, independent, critical thought and logic are ‘inferior” to you of the Liberal, brain-washed, intolerant, bigoted masses.
    As far as your comment about it coming back and eating my a**, sorry, not going to happen.
    Do you know why?
    Because I speak truth, I know God and His Word, and I know His word is true.
    I also know that the day is coming when EVERYONE will stand before God, a day when every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord of all.
    The question is, will he be your Saviour or your Judge?
    He is my Saviour, so I am not worried.

    “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” ~ Matt. 10:28

  • Ichabod

    Homosexuals do not get assaulted just walking down the street any more than anybody else does. I know when it does happen, that you love to blame Christians for it, but real Christians do not act that way and you know it.
    Being homosexual is a “right” in as far as who you choose to go to bed with, it is NOT a right to allow marriage (something that in the history of the WORLD has not been allowed by any society or religious faith), or to force your believes on others.
    The teaching of homosexuality to PRESCHOOLERS and elementary school students is INDOCTRINATION, and therefore a use of FORCE.
    You can argue and debate it all you wish, homosexuality is a CHOICE, it is not natural, and nobody is “born homosexual”. There is not one shred of evidence from any Scientific school of thought to prove otherwise.
    It is also “Force” when certain types of speech are labeled as “hate speech” or “Offensive” because a small group does not like it, and therefore feel it needs to be outlawed, and “Hate Speech” is illegal, hence, you are deliberately and forcefully denying the freedom of religion, which IS mentioned in the Constitution whereas homosexuality is not, and also violates Christians (and others) freedom of speech because you do not like what they have to say.
    That is un-Constitutional and the very thing you hypocritical homosexuals love to blame everyone else for when it is, in fact, YOU that are infringing on the rights of others.

    I have been in church services that were invaded by hateful homosexuals who disrupt the services, vandalism the church and the Congregations vehicles, and even assault Pastors, Evangelists and Congregation members because you disagree with them, and then you have the unmitigated gall to accuse anyone else of what YOU do!!??

    Then there is the targeting of Christian businesses to force them to surrender their religious faith to your perverted sexual proclivities under threat of being sued out of existence. These attacks WERE AND ARE deliberate and targeted against Christian businesses.
    Funny how not one homosexual has challenged a mosque or muslim run business.
    So YES, homosexuals are FORCING their sinful ways on the rest of society, and let us not forget the “trans-gender bathroom issue. where less than 1/1000th of the population can impose their will upon the rest of society regardless of their feelings, conscience, faith or age. To tell a 6,7,or 8 year old to “get over themselves and their offense” at seeing a man in a Ladies room or school locker room is the worst form of force and hate ever displayed by any group against another.
    The homosexual lobby demands that ALL submit to them. I will NOT.
    If someone “self-identifies” as a woman and I see them enter a Ladies room (especially if my girl is in there), I will “self-identify” as the Tooth Fairy and go take a collection from said person!

  • Ichabod

    And some idiot like you that uses selective comments and words to make a point isn’t worth the time it takes to challenge you.
    The main comment was about chromosomes. THAT is what decides gender, not how someone “feeeels”.
    But you couldn’t refute the science, so you refute someones wording instead.
    I am amazes that someone as brain-dead as you is still able to breath.

  • Ichabod

    Yeah, funny, right? These Liberals will tell us we must be “tolerant” of the “Peaceful, tolerant, loving muslims”, yet…….

  • Matt

    What makes you think your opinion of “truth” is anymore valid than the people you disagree with?

  • Matt

    She was only detained for five hours just so everyone know. All you hateful people can stop spewing these disgusting comments of her being thrown in jail.

  • Ivar Ivarson

    Hilly Clinton will want to return the $100 million she and Billy got from these hateful sheiks.

  • Looking Forward

    it’s a muslim country. I am sure she was well aware prior to going there. People like to push the envelop and that’s good it causes change and tolerance; however, I would never push the envelop with any of the middle east let alone in a country that is “Muslim” majority

  • Looking Forward

    Hope your mother doesn’t require the hysterectomy – or else you will be calling her Dad.

    haha – and I’m waiting for Will Smith to cozy up to Kim Jong Un North Korea’s great leader. Dennis Rodman likes him.

    “Homosexuals do not get assaulted just walking down the street any more than anybody else does. I know when it does happen…”

    It doesn’t happen, but it does happen? Have you checked your own countries hate crime statistics? You’ll find sexual orientation and transphobia are right up there.

    In the first ten months of last year 21 trans people were murdered in the US for simply existing.

    “..I know when it does happen, that you love to blame Christians for it..”

    I don’t recall blaming any particular religious group, I don’t really like to label people and prefer to judge them on their own merits. You’re not making a good impression.

    Gender identity and sexual orientation are I’m afraid a case of “Born that way” – you cannot relate to it, that does not make it invalid, and really it makes you unqualified to judge.

    LGBT people are asking the rest of society to leave them alone and allow them equal rights. There is no “Forcing” of anything going on.

    “If someone “self-identifies” as a woman and I see them enter a Ladies room (especially if my girl is in there), I will “self-identify” as the Tooth Fairy and go take a collection from said person!”

    So going back to your first point, LGBT people do not get assaulted, except when they do, possibly by you (Or the tooth fairy), for simply existing.

    Truly you are a genius and the very model of the Christian principles of peace and understanding!

  • AndYouWillDeal

    He is. He is also a closeted homo married to a closeted lesbo with mentally ill “genderfluid” kids.

    The people in Dubai would NEVER want to immigrate to the States. Have you SEEN how much we get from our governments, free land, free money, cars, insurance, jobs? Why would we wanna move to a slum like the US?

  • pisceanpassion

    Their country, their laws. Don’t like it, please do not go. Their laws may not be progressive, but I honestly think you come out as the worst person when you’re aware of the law but choose to break it and then cry victim. It’s just dishonest. Civil rights stances are best made in places where you are already a citizen because there you really have no choice but to be WHERE you are and WHO you are and still you’re suffering. That’s where you have a valid argument. You do not have one in a country that you don’t need to be and a country that doesn’t need you. Let transgendered Indians deal with that issue (along with the rampant sexual and physical assault on women and children).

    She isn’t dressed indecently. In fact I think she looks really nice. :o)

    “There is not one shred of evidence from any Scientific school of thought to prove otherwise.”

    Going by this logic, Catholic/Religious schools, or even religion altogether, should be prohibited and disregarded since there is no “scientific evidence” to prove ANYTHING.

  • disqus_Qj3jWEz0QV

    These are the people Clinton wants to import en masse to the US. And spend $100B a year doing it. Why LGBT people support Clinton is beyond me.

  • Ash

    I couldn’t have said it better. :)

  • CT

    You know GOD? What’s he like? What has he told you?? Yikes, religious people are so whacked out. You know relgion is all a bunch of made-up bullshit, right? Like, do you actually KNOW the person who wrote these scriptures you relgious fanatics incessantly site? Why would you blindly follow “rules” set out by someone you don’t even know?! Makes zero sense. Religion is for sheep and for people who don’t understand science.

  • Ichabod

    Ah yes, but we have a CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to practice our religious faith. Homosexuals do NOT have Constitutional rights mentioned in the Constitution to make other submit to them.
    Typical of a Liberal to make a stupid argument.
    I love it when a Liberal knows on a factual argument they will lose, so they go to the inane.

  • Ichabod

    Simple, my “truth” is based on VERIFIABLE facts, your “truth” is based on your feeeeeeelings, which by tomorrow, could change and can never be verified

  • Ichabod

    I do not have the time or inclination to respond further to your stupidity.

  • Ichabod

    First of all, DO NOT cite me the “phobia” BS. Not agreeing with someone is not a “phobia”.
    Second, I do not agree with the “hate crime” BS either. A crime is a crime, the motivation for said crime is irrelevant, especially when Blacks kill 3 times more Whites, rape 10 times more Whites, etc. and are never charged with a “hate crime”.
    As far as you retort to me saying that “when it does happen, you love to blame Christians”.
    That is a FACT. Orlando Nightclub was done by a muslim, yet the LGBT community blamed the “Christian right” for it, in fact, if you check, just about EVERY crime committed against a homosexual is identified by the LGBT community as a “Christian right hate crime”.
    Take the Shepard case in WI a few years back. His being a homosexual had nothing to do with his robbery and murder, but because he was a homosexual, well, that just had to be the motivating factor and why the “Christian right” was responsible for their “homophobic hate speech (“hate speech” has nothing to do with why Christians speak out against homosexuality, it is scripture, which you homosexuals hate because it says homosexuality is a SIN).
    Gender identity and sexual orientation are a CHOICE. Period. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY is “born homosexual”, it is a CHOICE every single homosexual or trans-gender person makes.
    As far as “I can’t relate to…” that would seem to be a JUDGMENT about me, wouldn’t you say?
    You see, you do not know me or anything about me, like my personal struggle with homosexuality when I was younger and before I gave my life to Christ? So I AM QUALIFIED to make a judgment on it. (Go ahead, attack me on that statement, I’m ready for it)
    No, the LGBT community IS NOT just wanting to be left alone, they are deliberately and willfully FORCING their sexual proclivities as I have stated.

    I would not be assaulting a “trans-gendered” as you say, “just because they exist”, I would be protecting the dignity and honor of the women and little girls in the rest-room or locker-room (I would wait until they came out).
    It amazes me how you like to speak of the “rights” of the LGBT community, yet have no consideration for the rights and sensibilities of anyone else!
    Little school girls not wanting a boy who “identifies” as a girl in their locker-room while they shower and change are secondary to the desire of the “trans-gendered”. The little girls “need to get over their discomfort” (Charlotte Observer).
    It is apparent that the LGBT “rights” supersede and override the rights of all other Americans.
    Now,if that isn’t force, then tell me, pray tell, what do you cal it when a group of people who make up less than 1/1000th of 1 percent of the population have “rights” that override the other 99.999% of the people’s?

    YOU are in no position to judge me or any other Christian or church, as it is YOU that have no understanding, and “unqualified to judge”.
    And as far as your impression of me, I couldn’t care less what you think of me. My argument is sound, is oft repeated by millions of other Americans, and you do not know me, yet you try and judge me, while condemning me for what you perceive as me “judging” others.
    I haven’t judged, I simply stated facts.
    If a person want to “self-identify” their gender or “gender identity”, all they have to do is look between their legs. Confusion ended.

    No, sex/gender CANNOT be changed. The physical appearance may be changed, but the gender remains (check the chromosomes).

  • Ichabod

    Yes, we all know about Dubai. Seems you forget about the slums of Dubai that make U.S. slums look like living in the Ritz! Besides, isn’t it your muslims duty (according to the quran) to immigrate and subject non-muslim nations, the old “islam will dominate” garbage that islam has been working on for over 1400 years?

    In 2003, 19.5% of the Dubai population lived below the poverty line, making $1.25 A DAY or less (stated in U.S. dollars for understanding and comparison for the U.S. market of this publication).

  • SquidBillie

    You’d be amazed at how dumb some people are. We all know what she was planning to do in Dubai, guess she’ll have to meet her John somewhere else.
