I'm not sure if I can give you an intelligent or relevant response right now, seeing as it's midnight, I haven't had dinner, am barely awake, and not really good at writing srs bsns comments, but I have to tell you what an interesting read this was. I never thought to connect the Bollywood with Adam, even though we also have our share of Bollywood in our daytime TV (I don't even watch these films, but I recognize the lead male dancing in the first gif right away. Yes, we have THAT much Bollywood in our TV, lol. Or we used to, before the Korean and South American soaps took over).

During my romping about in the AI fandom for the past year, I found something that is so strange about the Americans. A lot of them seem to be surprisingly conservative (in general) and probably even backward (in terms of gender identity issues). I come from a country whose population is mostly Moslem and rigidly religious. We're even worse in our conservativeness than America or India. Homo/bi/transexuality is something to be publicly ridiculed and scorned here, and it's completely okay to do that because homo/bi/transexuality is a sin *rolls eyes*. Only last year, the government almost passed a bill that prohibits any appearance/activity that is even remotely homo/bi/transexual, even behind the closed doors of our private bedrooms. If that bill was passed, Adam could be thrown in jail up to 15 years or required to pay a ridiculous amount of fine for just being who he is here. But we're a third-world, (practically) moslem country in South East Asia. Most of our people are uneducated. Most of our various cultures is patriarchal and our religions misogynistic. This kind of fuckery tends to happen. America is supposed to be the total opposite. Right? Isn't it a much more advance, intellectual, free-thinking country than ours?

Sadly, that Matthew Morrison interview and Adam's goddamn AMA thing (among other things) tell me that they're probably not that far ahead of us... I still can't understand why, tho :/

On another note...

the answer to every question is Shahrukh Khan really
