Ding dong! Ding dong!
Think about it: Which countries tolerate homosexuals, which
want to kill them?
March 30, 2005
for the first time in my life, I went to an Iranian embassy. The Iranian embassy
in Madrid. I wanted to visit Iran as a tourist, just like I have visited many
other places in the world without any problem. As I got out of the metro station,
I saw the embassy of Pakistan. Walking towards the Iranian embassy I cross other
embassies on the way. All normal so far.
The Iranian embassy is located on a small street
to my left. When I arrive at the street, I turn left
and yes, I see something different. Unlike all other embassies, there is
a Spanish military
police officer in front of the iranian embassy. How embarrassing, the Spaniards
having to pay for a guard because Iranians are a cause of trouble! Up to
the moment before I had turned left on that street, my thoughts
Iran were green fields
in the Caspian shore, snowy mountain tops, and the bazaar stores I was going
to visit looking for old music records from the Shah's time!
But as soon
as I turned left
on that street and saw the guard and the Allah Akbar flag, my memory started
to refresh. Once I was inside the embassy I actually started thinking
that the trip to Iran was a bad idea all together. They had satellite
TV on with programming
from inside Iran with a sibiluu woman presenter covered head to toe
with a chador. The walls were decorated with pictures of the biggest
murderers of our
time: Khomeini, Khamenei and I even think Mr. Kooseh!
I started being interviewed
by the clerk. He repeatedly asked me a question, which I thought I was answering
to the best of my knowledge. I mean the guy was asking me about something
that happened more than 20 years ago. I was starting to feel afraid
which got even worst, when
the hezbolahee clerk said: "Ageh mikhaay yek joor digeh mitoonam
baahaat harf bezanam!" (I can speak to you in another fashion if you
want me to!")
you imagine how embarassing this is? I have visited so many countries in
and look what treatment one gets trying to visit the country I love. I
was tempted to
answer the guy: "Khob yekjoor digheh harf bezan!" but I controled
myself since I didn't want to mess up my travel plans -- just yet!
I told the guy: "Vel kon baabaa!" And I took my papers and
exited the place as fast as I could. So what does all this have to do
the heterosexual imbecility
of the "Say
no to same-sex marriage" article in Iranian.com? A lot!
You see, I typed iranian.com on my browser and
went blank. As the page was loading, I started imagining what would
be on the front page. Nice
things: a photo essay of Shomal with green fields, photos of Tajrish
Bazaar, which I wanted to visit with fish bowls and laboo...
when the page loaded, it was like that left turn I made on my
way to the Iranian
embassy. The page loaded and I see something very hurtful.
The article against gay marriage was as hurtful as seeing those
of Khomeini and company inside
embassy. I felt a fear very similar to the one I experienced
talking to the hezbolahee clerk.
look at yourselves
the mirror! What countries are working towards
eliminating discriminatory laws against gays? Canada, Sweden,
Which countries want to kill homosexuals? Iran, Saudi Arabia,
Sudan, and other shitty countries. Does that ring a bell? Ding
dong! Ding dong!
I wonder why heterosexuals have to forcefully discriminate
because they are not like
them. What gives the right to a heterosexual to tell me that
I cannot do what
he CAN do?
And this guy wonders why some people might object to such
blatant discrimination. Who the hell do you think you are?
me tell you:
think you are superior
and above others, just like KHOMEINI and KHAMENEI. It is
exactly the same concept. And God didn't say anything!
It's just some book some, semi illiterate sheppard wrote!
