    I read from a human rights organization that more than 4000 homosexuals have been executed since the revolution .. I don't blame them.

    I thought Iran didn't have gays? At least that's what Ahmadinejad says! icon_lol.gif


    On a serious note though, I feel really bad for gays in Iran. They have it much worse than gays in the USA. I hope something can be done for them and they can find equal treatment somehow in that country. icon_sad.gif

    In that country? don't count on it. At least not for MANY years (and revolution would HAVE to be bloody, that's all they seem to understand over there)

    I tell you, coming from a family that feels the same way as most of these iranians-in-charge do, it's not an easy battle... I think best for now would be to make it easier for gay iranians to leave - who knows, maybe they'd be ok allowing the non-existing gays to leave the country.. i mean they weren't there in the first place, right? icon_razz.gif
