What a despicable country. And this makes it even worse.
In an attempt to rid Iran of all "homosexuality" they are allegedly forcing gay men to undergo sex reassignment surgery, or face execution.
This is from an activist:
“The government believes that if you are a gay man your soul is that of a woman and you should change your body.” Amin, who fled the country in 1983, explains. “They think this is a way to fight the existence of homosexual people because you change their body and you solve the problem.”
You can read the entire article, here. They go into a lot more detail. People in the comments, however, are questioning the validity of the story.
I also read the same basic content, here.
Cute Aaron Schock Comes Out As Gay
I've been posting about cute Aaron Schock articles for a few years now. I think everyone knows who he is, how cute he is, and why so many people are interested in him.
Well he finally came out of the closet as gay, and there have been many reactions to it. And most have been negative. You can go to the link and read all of that. I'm not getting into it here.
“I didn’t want to think about it,” he said about how he realized he was attracted to boys as a teenager. “I always preferred to force my thoughts in another direction, leaving a final answer about that for another day.”
Here's the link. If you don't know who Schock is, it will tell you everything you ever needed to know. There's a photo of him, too.
What readers are saying about "Uncertainty"
"A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he'll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who's husband died last year. I enjoyed this story."
What readers said about "Altered Parts"
"Best Gay Novel In Years. This story will stay with you and you will feel you know every character and the beauty of their home in the mountains of North Carolina."
What readers said about Kendle's Fire.
While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don't find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don't think it could have been done better.
