Re: Photographs To Help Explain Why There Are No Homosexuals In Iran

That really did make me feel sick to the stomach.

The twisted thing is that if those gay boys had gone to a doctor and told the doctor they think they are a woman on the inside and that they were born as the wrong sex, the govt would sanction giving them a sex change!

Such a twisted world we live in.

Note to Sam L - This does not mean I support bombing Iran!

Re: Photographs To Help Explain Why There Are No Homosexuals In Iran

These pics also make me even angrier towards the Australian and British governments as in the past 5 years or so Ive seen cases of Iranian guys claiming refugee status based on the fact that they would be put to death for being gay if they were sent back.

But the Howard govt didnt give a shit about something trivial as that and tried as hard as they could to get rid of the refugee - I have seen something in the news in the UK recently along the same lines...

Gay Iranian man loses asylum plea

Iran has regularly executed people it has convicted of homosexual acts

An Iranian homosexual man who has said he will be executed if he is deported from the Netherlands has had his claim for asylum overturned.
Mehdi Kazemi has said his life is in danger if he is returned to Iran, where he says his boyfriend named him as a partner before being executed.
Homosexual acts are illegal in the Islamic republic.
A Dutch spokesman said Mr Kazemi would now be sent to the UK, the first European country he entered.
A claim for asylum in the UK had already been turned down.
Application turned down
His case has become a campaign cause for gay rights activists across Europe.
Mr Kazemi, 19, said he had travelled to Britain in 2005 to study English, and learned that his lover in Iran had been executed for sodomy, his lawyer Borg Palm said.
After his asylum application was turned down, he fled to the Netherlands in 2006, having narrowly avoided being sent back to Iran.
Dutch immigration authorities are more lenient towards homosexual Iranians, who are afforded special status because of the regime's hard line against them.
'Life in danger'
The Dutch are refusing to consider the case. Under the EU's 2003 Dublin Regulation, the state the applicant first enters is responsible for processing their application.
Mr Kazemi says his life will be in danger not only because he has been named as a homosexual, but also because of the extensive media coverage of his case,. Mr Kazemi's uncle - who is in the UK - said the family was considering an appeal to the European Court. A statement from Britain's immigration service said: "We examine with great care each individual case before removal and we will not remove anyone who we believe is at risk on their return."

Re: Photographs To Help Explain Why There Are No Homosexuals In Iran

It's really sad, not just gay people but anyone who dosen't fit the mould. Stories like this would make me support a war more and more.

Does anyone know how they were caught?

Can't see how people are managing to blame this on Britain?

We can't just accept everyone, I don't see the Czech republic taking them. France has the same population as us, but is much bigger, they don't accept them either.

It's the fault of religious extremism in the 1st place

Christianity went through it hundreds of year ago, Islam just hasn't caught up yet.

Re: Photographs To Help Explain Why There Are No Homosexuals In Iran

I have posted these approx one year ago in another thread, along with other similar photos.

What strikes me now, as I look at it again, is the public aspect of it. I know that executions in Saudi are somewhat of a public fun activity; is it every Monday? Here in Iran we see the temporary gallows and apparently the truck used to stand the condemned on - which I guess drives off, leaving them hanging.

The reason the UK disappoints me is that their Regufee program is supposed to operate on the basis of accepting anyone who would face persectution and danger to their lives if they were returned home. On that basis, the UK should accept homosexuals from Iran.

The same goes for australia and the previous Howard govt did something similar to a gay iranian in australia. It just comes down to a deep seated belief that somehow homosexuals deserve what they get, or are less deserving of being saved from persectuion than someone being persecuted for their religion for example..
