precious women @ 09:42 am

I was talking with a friend last night
a gay guy who is only recently gay
he was married 30 years
first kid at 18
... he never was particularly interested in men
but when his marriage was over
so went to men
coz still loves sex

normal, right?
it's an open option.
(but a different type of faggot... if faggot is even what he is)

he's a good lover.

so we went for a walk
in conversation
he brings up something about Abu-Grabe
that prision where the american military was torturing people
he said he'd read something about how male-to-male sex there was normal
that the military had trouble with the local men who worked at the facility
coz they'd take a lunch break and go suck eachother off out in the back or something
and the US guys kept saying "that's wrong! you can't do that!"
and the locals just didn't get it

i chimed in with what i knew from the Iranians i hung with in Rotterdam:

it's considered "normal" for guys to grow up fucking eachother
blow jobs, whatever: buddy sex

of course
when they grow up they are expected to marry
but there's nothing wrong with guys loving eachother

it's entirely different than being a Fag. a Queen.
those get hung up in a public square:
they aren't making children AND they are flaunting dis-regard for the culture

to which my friend says
"yeah, i think it's pretty fucked up they way they treat women there"

ah, but yes
do you know why?
do you know why they women have to cover everything?

a few years ago i was at a greyhound station(maybe more than a few)
waiting to change busses
there were a bunch of Amish
i got to talking with one of them (HOT!) to try and understand his culture better
i asked him about his wife's hair: why is it covered?

he said:
A woman's hair is her Glory
the most beautiful aspect of her
it shows off the beauty of her soul (etc)
When she is young, she shows it to attract a Husband
but when she is married, she keeps it covered, only for Him to see

Men are Weak.
a marriage bond is one of fidelity
to tempt a man with a married woman will only end in trouble

so of course
in the middle east
women are so hemmed in
because they are precious
and powerful

and men are weak
they couldn't stop themselves if they saw the bare mid-drif
if they saw the beautiful hair
cheeks, lips
calves! Oh My!

so they keep covered.

it's true, you know
men can't even stop eachother from sucking each other's dicks!
men are dogs!

well, in cultures where men are allowed to be who they are
where men are allowed to love
love eachother
love freely and openly

in Turkey
it wasn't about sex
it was about love
they big burley masculine guys
would see eachother
eyes would light up with joy
they would take their friend's hand
kiss his lips
a big hug
and walk down the street arm-in-arm

this isn't "gay"

Women are Precious, yes
they need to be protected from men
especially when they are Married

but Really?

of course
in our "Modern" "Society"
we would say that's stupid
and people can control themselves
how absurd!

but really?
which country has more divorce?
which, really?
what do you think?

which country has more psychosis?
more "mentally ill"?

and Why? why do you think that is?

But which countries regularly stone their citizens for infidelity and homosexuality?

I co-run a yahoo longhair group, and from time to time we get a few middle-eastern men asking for admission, from places like Iran. None of these men have pictures in their profile, for obvious reasons.

Sometimes I really feel sorry for them. At the other end is probably some gorgeous bearded dude, just one step away from incarceration.

And then I realize that if our fundys ever got their way in this country, we'd be going through the same shit.

I'd like to. If I'm not mistaken, that would be about 3 days before our birthdays?

Maybe we could plan something?

It isn't about women being so beautiful and men so weak that women need protection. It's about power and control through religion. We will never live in a civilized world until human beings abandon the myths, superstitutions, fantasies and fictions of sectarian religion. Institutional religion is inherently evil because its continued existence is predicated on inculcating a hatred of being human. When we quit believing this nonsense and start loving being human, then perhaps we will have a civilized world. Maybe another 1,000 years from now?
