CNN has a piece on the difficult life of gays in Iraq. Some Iraqi men hate homosexuality so much that when they find a gay 16-year-old they spend the next 15 days raping him. Yes, I am sure there is some obscure planet in some alternate reality where that might make sense.
What doesn't make sense is this: "Rami said he once fell in love with a man who was part of the Mehdi Army, a Shiite insurgent group loyal to the radical anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr.Their relationship eventually soured."
Dear gay children: when you grow up, do not start relationships with Shia terrorists. I heard they sometimes go sour.
