The author is an idiot who does not know the difference between being gay and homosexual acts.

For those of you who need a refresher, ponder this: many gay persons are celibate, and many straight persons engage in homosexual acts from time to time, for any number of reasons.

FTA: "It's illegal to be gay in 78 countries...." but then "...executed more than 4,000 people charged with homosexual acts."

The mixup may even be intentional, to stir up outrage that people are being persecuted for the way they were born. True, being gay may get your bigot neighbors to snub you, but your orientation won't get you executed. The actions you choose to take get you executed.


Sooooo.... now to the interesting question of how they plan to detect who is gay. Given that the author fails to understand what "being gay" means and what Muslim nations actually prohibit, it seems obvious that they are looking for evidence of homosexual activity, not orientation. Definitely a more feasible goal, since, especially in males, such activities often do leave physical traces.

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

Sodomy is punishable by death in Saudi Arabia, but gay life flourishes there. Why it is "easier to be gay than straight" in a society where everyone, homosexual and otherwise, lives in the closet

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.

Suckmaster Burstingfoam: mr_a: Anybody know where I can buy a couple thousand high tech looking boxes with lots of LED's, some switches, a random number generator and a sensing wand?

I want to bid on the gay-detector contract.

Try the "internet". I hear you can buy all sorts of electronics parts online now, no need for the old catalogues.


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.

I'm wondering what they've figured out that the rest of the world hasn't, in terms of testing.

I'm also wondering if, like so many backwards countries, their definition of gay is something preposterous.  You know the spiel, it's only gay if you're the bottom, it's only gay if you kiss, it's only gay if you dress in womens' clothes, etc.  It's not gay if you fark another dude.  It's not gay if you fark a young boy.  It's not gay if you talk about chicks while you do it. That sort of bull poopie.

Well, if homosexuality is innate and unchangeable, then presumably it's caused by some biological feature that could -- theoretically at least -- be tested for.  In all probability it would be too subtle for current technology though.  ...but who knows?  I have no idea what research has been published on the topic, if any.  For obvious reasons it would be highly non-PC to even investigate the topic, regardless of the findings.

The only way a doctor can certify medical gayness in a man is if the penis is found to be literally inserted into the anus or rectum of another man during the examination. Medical gayness in a woman is much easier to prove - if she does not sleep with you, she is a lesbian.

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


Of course you can't enter the Temple unless you're Mormon.
