English term or phrase: SHE-RA SHE-RA
they are talking about David Beckam. A girl says he is very cute and a man answers that he is a fucking shiftlifter and adds she-ra she-ra
stefano
Italian translation:vedi sotto
Explanation:
First of all, the term is "shirtlifter" not "shiftlifter". "Shirtlifter" is a pejorative term for a homosexual man.

I can only assume She-ra refers to "She-ra, Princess of Power" from the He-Man cartoon series. The man is implying perhaps that while B. is a powerful football player he is also effeminate.

By the way, perhaps the \"She-ra, She-ra\" is sung by the man, as in the jingle for the cartoon series? Wouldn\'t know though - too old (and maybe too girly) to have been a fan of \"He-man\"

  -> Good point! Don't want to offend anyone but maybe "checca" ? If the asker hasn't already solved that problem maybe he should post another Kudoz question. Cheers
