So You Think You Can...

Inspired by John's post, I devised the next craze in reality TV. Of course, I'm not sure what channel would carry it...maybe KBYU or BYU-TV...perhaps a feature on KSL. But it would be a competition for mohos only: men, women, married, single, whatever. All mohos welcome to compete. It would be called, "So You Think You Can Change."

It could be sponsored by Evergreen. The competition would be delightful. Effeminate men and butch women coming on stage to prove their ability to fit traditional gender roles, exhibit the proper mannerisms, and demonstrate their ability to ogle members of the opposite sex. I would be booted for using the word "delightful".

Of course, I only just now thought of this and haven't fully formed the concept in my mind. The winner would get...um...a date with an attractive member of the opposite sex? All pre-arranged so they didn't have to put any effort into it. And maybe some euphoria-inducing drugs for the end of the date where some kind of physical gesture is expected. Or maybe they should just get a toolkit and coveralls if it's a guy, or a cooking set with an apron if it's a girl. Or maybe a home aversion therapy kit and their very own pillow and tennis racquet!

So...where shall we hold the auditions?

I'd soooo lose.

I suck at being straight.

I think this would be hilarious. There are so many Mohos that think they are good at acting straight...Many of them are quite mistaken. Haha. Not that I'm any good at acting like a lesbian. Hey there's an idea--maybe we should also have straight people trying to be gay, and then the prize could be a date with a member of the SAME sex. Hmm... :)
