Türkiye -- A Gay Haven? -- Part 1

That there is a thriving community of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transvestites and transsexuals (LGBTT) in the larger cities of Turkey (especially Istanbul) is a pretty open secret. And except for those in the latter category of sexual 'orientation' above, that community has existed for a long time apparently. Homosexuality in Ottoman times is well documented, efendim. And, these days, the never ending rumors about Tarkan's true sexual orientation...

A 'Fast Food' Fable for Ramadan/Ramazan

An especially shrewd fox was wandering through the forest one day during Ramazan -- when his eyes fell upon an extremely appetizing sight. Hanging from the limb of a nearby tree, he saw a deliciously-plump freshly-cut leg of deer. But although the fox was quite hungry, he was also cautiously suspicious. And when he looked closer he saw that it was a trap. The deer's thigh was attached by a thin string -- to a bomb...

Turkish Airlines (THY) and the Non-Alcoholic Tissue-Towels

Hürriyet Newspaper columnist Emin Çolaşan stops short of being anti-religious, but is relentless in tackling religion-based tomfoolery wherever he finds it. Take, for example, what he had to say about Turkish Airlines (THY) in this sidebar to his column last Friday...

Foreign Products Without Turkish Instructions May Face Import Restrictions Soon

It may have been a coincidence... But on the same day that Panasonic Marketing Europe Director, Dietrich Nedele, announced the introduction of Turkish language menus and users manuals for all of his company's electronic exports to Turkey, the Director of the Turkish Language Society (TDK), Sükrü H. Akalın called for a Turkish boycott of foreign import products that didn't provide Turkish language instructions or users manuals. He cited, but did not identify, one company that exports to Turkey which, although it provides users manuals in 18 different languages, doesn't provide one in Turkish...

Our Off Color Turkish Slang Dictionary -- Why We Publish It

Our Off Color Dictionary got started when our Turkish nephew, Yankı, suggested (back in 1996) that we prepare a page of the most commonly heard Turkish language swear words. If we left it left them out, he advised, our coverage of 'Practical Turkish' would be incomplete. How could Turkish language learners cope, he cajoled, without a basic knowledge of everyday Turkish swear words and slang...

Romance, Love, and Sex Matters in Turkey #2

According to 'The Lying Eyes Club' Website, there are 10 basic categories of unfaithful Turkish lovers/partners -- who are motivated, in some cases, by strong positive or negative emotions and, in other cases, by almost no emotion at all. The categories are: Mental Cheaters, Virtual Cheaters, "Testing 1, 2, 3" Cheaters, Physical Cheaters, Platonic Cheaters, Mulish or Spiteful Cheaters, Eye-for-an-Eye Cheaters, Multi-party Cheaters, Partner 'Pre-Approved' Cheaters, and Romantic Cheaters.

Troubles in Turkish Paradise -- According to Turkey's Top Military Officer

In one of his first official statements since assuming command as the country's top military officer, the new Genelkurmay Başkanı (Chairman of the Turkish Joint Chiefs of Staff), Yaşar Büyükanıt, identified two major threats to the welfare of the Turkish Republic. They are, he said, reactionaryism (read 'religious excess' in government) and 'divisiveness' (read, the PKK terrorist threat). As if to punctuate the ominous warning of the General's words...
