Recent years have been very, very difficult. Were the militants, who, upon learning that someone is gay, can make the arrest, to rape, to torture. There have been many murders with the consent of the Iraqi army. Was a video where people were burned or stoned, and it is clear that there were present soldiers. There was a video in which gay men wore ropes on the neck, and then dragged through the streets, and people threw stones at them, and then their half-dead burned. Some people have sealed up the anus and left for dead in the desert.
I think before ISIS I defended the authority of my family. But let's imagine that ISIS was gone. Even in this case, I would have been under threat, because they became aware of my homosexuality. The difference is that ISIS kills only one terrible way, pushing people off buildings, and then - if they survive - scoring x stones. I know that I would be waiting for exactly such a fate, I fall into their hands. The only difference is that the media show an interest in them because of the "Islamic state". ISIS and removes all on video and then publish with the words: "We killed these people because they are gay, and this is their punishment, according as he commands our Holy book".
ISIS is able to professionally track down homosexuals. They catch them one by one. Then they scan the contacts of this person on the phone, on Facebook. They are trying to identify all the gays. It's like a Domino effect. If one falls, all fall, and other. I hate to see people's reactions to the murder. Usually, if there are videos of ISIS killings, the victims empathize, but only if they're not gay.
Islam is against homosexual love. Father forced me to study Sharia law for 6 years, that I became so religious. There is a hadith which tells how to live Muslim. It says that gays should drop off a cliff. And then the judge or the Caliph should decide you need them then stoned or burned. I think ISIS throws gays off buildings, because our society hates us, and so they are trying to get the approval in his eyes.
I try not to watch videos that ISIS takes. But I'll tell you the truth, I still browse the video about the ISIS militants who have become "martyrs", I really hope to see among them Omar, the man who ruined my life. I'm worried about the remaining gays. I have dozens of friends who cannot leave because they have no funds for it. After the death of our friend I said goodbye to them and blocked them online so as not to endanger.
I decided to talk about this in honor of my murdered friend and those gays who remained in Iraq. I want the Iraqis to know that we are human beings, not criminals. We have feelings, a soul. Stop to hate us, because we were born different. I was lucky that I was able to leave. I saved his soul. But what will happen to them? How lucky they are? Will they be able to survive? And if you survive, will survive the trauma of persecution? It's awful. They're all under the gun.
Of course, that homosexuals are calm phlegmatic Scandinavians, restrained loving the British or the French, there is an element of national culture. The British, for example, for centuries, respected privacy - the right of everyone to privacy. If the gentleman prefers the company of boys, and the lady feels a romantic attraction to girls, it is their right. In addition, parenting in same-sex groups of students of closed schools like Eton also contributed to a more tolerant attitude to youth more than friendship.
Moreover, explicitly recognized a separate class of consumers. So, according to statistics, homosexuals among people with higher education are almost twice more than among people with secondary. Higher qualification - higher income. According to another study, the income of gay men is about 5% higher incomes of those in the same age group.
And since gay men are less likely to accumulate and the more you spend on clothes and shoes, cars, tours, - they are a very tasty morsel for manufacturers. That's why vodka "Smirnoff" cars "Chrysler Neon", tours to Ibiza regularly advertised in the media for gays and lesbians. Dozens, if not hundreds of law firms, dentists, psychoanalysts spetsializiruyutsya on serving the people, indifferent to my gender.
In the US, even there was the first national broadcasting company Triangle Broadcasting Company, which is focused on the interests of gays and lesbians. TVs round the clock broadcasts in Seattle and Tacoma, and will soon be broadcast in San Francisco, palm springs, Phoenix and Providence.
