"Rivers of wine and  young boys fine as pearls."

Yet alcohol and homosexuality are illegal, you just have to die to enjoy them. How farked up are these people?

MJMaloney187: AverageAmericanGuy: This wouldn't be something you could test for unless there was something physically different about homosexuals.

Allegedly, homosexuals are born homosexuals. The Bedouin savages must have found the gene and some kind of cobalt-thiocyanate-esque reagent. Hopefully they'll test their own citizens, too.


Fundamentalist Middle Eastern nations being at the cutting edge of medical technology? Let me laugh harder.
I fear the day the christian fundamentalists here realize they have a lot in common with the Islamic fundamentalist immigrants and form a voting bloc.
/ I also wonder what would happen if you put someone like Pat Robertson and his Muslim equivalent in a room and forced them to have a discussion.

Being Muslim is a choice.

Didn't scientists spend a good chunk of the '90s saying it was in the genes? If so it's something that would come up in a test.

Fortunately for the rest of us they're usually too busy arguing over which of their deities could beat up the other or which name they want their theocracy to use.

Believing that "it's in there somewhere" and knowing where (which gene/s) and how to do the test are entirely different.

Well, Saudi Arabia is already on that, but in reverse - you can't enter Mecca unless you're Muslim.

There's a temple in Kathmandu that wont allow non-Hindus to enter.  But it's really just one building in the entire complex.


There are temples all over India that do that.  But that's not the point. A temple or a mosque or a church is a private building for the purpose of its members to pray - it's fine if they want to keep out people who don't share their beliefs.  Their loss, really.

Can't say the same for entire countries..

Just noticed - one of the places on that list, Mauritania, only abolished slavery in 1981 and didn't make it illegal until 2007. That only took place because of pressures from the rest of the world.  Who knows how long it will take them to decriminalize homosexuality?

I was going to make one for the wifi sufferers (you know, the nutters that think wifi is making them sick), and have it give them a nice reassuring green light on most of the time, but have it randomly go yellow and then red every once in a while.

But that would be wrong, and evil, and probably open me up to a vicious lawsuit.

Huh, I didn't know about the others.  I can just imagine the uproar if the Catholic Church declared that only Catholics could enter the Vatican, or if the Israelis expelled all non-Jews from Jerusalem.

Researcher: Think about it this way:

Gulf States make this gay test to keep people out. The science is.. well, not real. But them reserving the right to refuse entry to whoever they want has certain advantages.

I'm surprised that no one has posted the infinitely more likely reason they're doing this: They want to be able to refuse entry to their country to any person on their whim. If they call them gay on the way out - they don't care. You have political ideas we don't like? He tested positive. A religion we don't like? Super positive. Anything from a labor activist, to someone who is just totally openly gay, and they can boot you. It's super simple, and I doubt the populace is going to be up in arms about keeping people out who they are being told are gay.

Incorporate. That should protect you from the lawsuits.

I don't know why the Daily Fail left off Uganda and Palestine as countries that also punish being gay with death... I'm sure there's even more countries to boot. Maybe they hit their word limit.

Yes, I hear they are already way worse than the Arab countries mentioned.

Wasn't it in Uganda that recently Stephen Fry was doing an interview with some government official and the official said he felt that child rapists, if their victims were girls, were better people than gays?

You watched the interview too, eh?

Yes, the guy said something like "it's okay because it's HETEROSEXUAL child rape, and that's healthy and normal."

If you're gay, why are you contemplating visiting these countries?  If it's because you're a native.....still, why are you contemplating going back?  To see your family?  What's that dinner conversation going to be like?  At least backwards southern families in america won't murder you BEFORE dinner.  They're doing gays a favor by turning them back at the border.  The alternative is much more unpleasant than being sent back home in a minor huff, and it involves being hate-raped with a bottle of coca-cola before being tossed into a pool filled with jew bones.

I think the link is pure Daily Mail BS. Certainly some of these countries have sophisticated enough medical personnel to know there is no gay test. Claiming that all of the countries are acting in unison seems highly improbable. For Saudi Arabia the situation would be a disaster. Saudi Arabia has the holy sites particularly the Kaaba in Mecca. They get millions of pilgrims a year coming in. Any test they had would be insulting to a big proportion of the non gay pilgrims they administered it to. There is no way they could do this.

No, no ... you're selling them short. They invented algebra and tube-shaped pockets. I was friends with a bunch of Moozlims in college. They seemed like nice enough guys. Dangerously tribal, but nice. I did ask one to name the Middle East equivalent of Bill Gates. He got mad because it was a trick question.

I was guessing. The technology doesn't necessarily have to be medical. Homosexuals could emit some kind of fabulous radio frequency.

That's pretty funny. I think this was linked to in a Fark thread some years ago: The Kingdom in the Closet

Well, this is the Middle East, so I'm guessing the gay test goes a little something like this: first, the tester gives every man wanting to enter the country a handjob. If the man likes it enough, he is deemed gay. But! If he goes back with the tester into a special room, and sucks enough heterosexuality out of the tester's dick, he is now non-gay enough to enter the country. Naturally gay tester is an appointed position rich super non-gay men pay lots of money to get appointed to. Also, there will be plenty of bribery.

There's actually quite a few different combinations of genetics and in utero conditions that have been correlated with homosexuality. Basically the gay is tripple reinforced to happen once in a while. If I was a religious man, I would get the impression that this was part of some grand design. But what do I know?
