dutch represent

Just your average election results in a town on the Bible Belt

(or: my hometown in which non-religious people are a minority and it definitely shows)


1. SGP - Conservative Christian reformed party that doesn’t allow women in the party: 20,12% (read that line again: doesn’t allow women in the party)

2. ChristenUnie - religious party, a tad more progressive than SGP: 16,3 9%

3. VVD - right-wing party for the snobs: 15,58%

4. CDA - mainstream religious party, slightly right of the centre: 14,80%

5. PVV - aka the racist party led by yet another angry, blond, toupee’d guy: 11,32%


Sooo roughly 76% voting on the conservative, non-socialist, right-wing spectrum, and a pretty solid 51% voting for the hardcore religious parties

hey tumblr. I would like to introduce you to the dutch Eurovision representative, Douwe Bob. In this song, Douwe talks about sexuality. He is, as you probably garner from the video, an out and proud bisexual. He is also a hilarious lil shit.

 A rough translation for the non-dutch speakers:


In the store of love, there’s a lot of different flavors

there’s something for everyone

Do you like bananas? Or peaches

Delicious with whipped cream, or sprinkles or chocolate.


Maybe you fall for a she, maybe for a he

maybe for both


he, ho, bi 

when you do it then you’ll feel the magic

he, ho, bi

you’re one of them. but which of the three?


(joke about different sexual sounding candy, doesn’t translate to english except for lollipop)

cinnamon stick, liquorice, lollipop, manneken pis* (not candy, famous fountain in the shape of a lil peeing boy. Don’t ask me ok Douwe came up with this idk)

you don’t know what you’re missing

if you’ve never tried it


Maybe you fall for a she, maybe for a he

maybe for both


he, ho, bi

when you do it then you’ll feel the magic

he, ho, bi

you’re one of them. but which of the three?


fucking, blowing, cunningulus (i can’t think of a better word. Yes he says this all while making eyes at the camera)

If you don’t want it, you should say so.

Both of you have to want it.


in the front, in the back 

sideways

what makes you happy?

what do you enjoy?


he, ho, bi

when you do it then you’ll feel the magic

he, ho, bi

you’re one of them. but which of the three?

you’re one of them. but which of the three?

you’re one of them. but which of the three?

these are woodcuts, but look like masking tape when it’s really old, has lost its adhesive, and basically leaves a dusty trace
