CH (160): Tom “Amina” – Bill “Paula”

Dua nama blogger, Tom MacMaster dan Bill Graber, belakangan ini membuat heboh dunia maya, pasca terungkapnya penyamaran mereka. Jika Tom “menyaru” sebagai Amina Arraf, maka Bill dikenal sebagai Paula Brooks. Laki-laki yang menjadi ”perempuan”.

Tom akhirnya mengaku menukangi blog yang sangat terkenal, “Syrian Lesbian”, sedangkan Bill adalah editor situs berita lesbian, Lez Get Real. Lalu kenapa mereka harus menyamar?

Lewat The Washingtonpost online, keduanya mengungkapkan alasannya. “I didn’t start this with my name because… I thought people wouldn’t take it seriously, me being a straight man,” ucap Bill ‘Paula Brooks’ Graber. “…The biggest reason was that I found that when I argued, debated and made points that I knew to be factually sound on issues relating to Middle East by myself, I got pushback…”, Tom ‘Amina Arraf’ MacMaster.
