    He's not only smart, he also have good sense of humor.

    I was thinking if Saddam's still alive today, then we have these two people stealing news all over the world.

    My first reaction was to bristle at the idea of this guy getting a forum in the US. But, as it turns out, it couldn't have gone better. He made it more clear than ever to more people that he is a complete 164-piece toolbox.

    What?

    Iran has an estimated population of 65-million. Do you think it's possible that there isn't at least one person who is homosexual? Mr. Mahmoud doesn't think so.

    Just replace gay with whoever you happen to be to see the problem.
    See I deal with men and women in this forum most every day, and their race, colour or sexuality is never considered, as it has no relevence to our conversation, so surley you can understand that it is equally of no importance should we ever meet.

    Reminds me of a line from the old comedy show Soap: "We don't have homos in Texas. Leastways, not live ones".

    Have you guys never been to middle eastern countries? The concept of homosexuality does indeed not exist in most of them. If it does, it's rarely spoken of, and it's suppressed as some sort of extremely erratic sin. I don't see anything wrong with what he's trying to say, I just don't like how he said it.

    You really need to pop out of your bubble where you expect to see everything that YOU think is "the norm" in your part of the world, in every other part of the world as well. Only then will you see what he means.

    Well, I don't know about Iran, but based on absorbing media here in America, I've determined that all American homosexuals are:
    • Hot, hot lesbians with rocking bodies
    • Peppermint Patty
    • Men with mustaches
    • Extremely effeminate men who shreik a lot


    My point is we're "open" about it here, but we're still full of sh*t about who people really are.

    not sure how you can misconstrue what he said. he didn't say "people aren't openly gay in iran" or anything like that. he categorically stated that there are no gay people in iran. this is not true.

    i do know (very well) that opinions and attitudes towards homosexulaity are very different in many parts of the world to those in the UK and other parts of the western world, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. gay people exist pretty much wherever people exist!

    If you wish. I'll PM it to you.

    While we're at it... give me your first name, last name and contact info as well. If you want to contact this person, you'll do so through me. And I'm not sure what you wish to endeavor, but if anything I'd prevent my friends from having to deal with strangers.

    And you... you're a stranger.

    Understood?

    Yes, but the phenomenon doesn't exist there, so to speak. It's so taboo, you might as well say that no such person exists, and it'll be just as good as there really being no one as such. It's hard to explain, but do you get my drift here?

    I know what you're saying, and I agree, homosexuals ARE everywhere. They DO exist. But to him, it's like he's a simpleton, their minds are brainwashed for the concept to not even exist.

    So is drinking alcohol... but it still happens. Denial is also strong in those regions.

    Been there, yes I have. There's a lot of things that are suppressed to high level; but that's straight denial.

    I know what you're saying, and I agree, homosexuals ARE everywhere. They DO exist. But to him, it's like he's a simpleton, their minds are brainwashed for the concept to not even exist.
    This... I can agree with.
