Human Rights Report On Murders Of Gays In Iraq
Lacking other groups to persecute (I guess they've killed them all), the Shiite militias are targeting gay men. Seriously, can the gays catch a break here? First Prop 8, then Adam Lambert, and now this. I don't think we can take anymore.
If you just want to take a look at the report, you can go here. Be warned, the report is graphic.
And, if you don't want to take the time to read it, please consider the words of Hamid, who is dealing with the murder of his partner:
"The cheapest thing in Iraq is a human being, a human life. It is cheaper than an animal, than a pair of used-up batteries you buy on the street. Especially people like us."
I've had to hear and use those words "people like us" too often in the past few years. So much for progress.
