The Hole Story

Home - by - March 20, 2013 - 12:26 America/New_York - 18 Comments

Theresa Sparks, the transgendered head of the San Francisco Human Rights Commission, in response to the AFDI’s latest bus ads, said that it’s easier to get the government to pay for your sex-change in Iran than it is in America.

Helloooooo
.

Sparky’s hope is that the listener will come away thinking that Iran is less oppressive to deviance than the USA. Iran, indeed, is second to only Thailand in having the most transgendered men. And it’s precisely because Iran puts men to death for homosexuality which puts them on the cutting edge, so to speak.

For gays in Iran, it’s “your junk or your life.”

Huff Poop reports:

Iranian-born filmmaker, Tanaz Eshaghian, who brought attention to Iran’s transgender community in her award-winning 2008 documentary film, “Be Like Others,” illustrates the logic behind the law. In one scene of the film, a Muslim cleric explains how Islam supports sex-change surgery. “An action is allowed unless it states specifically in the Quran that an act is a sin. Why is adultery one of the seven deadly sins? Because it specifically says so in the Quran. Because it does not specifically state that sex change is a sin, therefore, we cannot call it a sin.”

Yet while the freedom to change sex might come as a relief to some, Eshaghian also draws attention to the pressure felt by gay men and women in Iran to have sexual reassignment surgeries as a means of legitimizing their sexual orientation. As gay individuals, they are committing a crime. As transsexuals, they can exist under Iranian law.

Ali Askar, a male-to-female who underwent surgery, told the BBC, “If I didn’t have to operate, I wouldn’t do it. I wouldn’t touch God’s work.”

Gender theorist Afsaneh Najmabadi adds: “For legal and medical authorities, sex change surgeries are explicitly framed as the cure for a diseased abnormality, and on occasion they are proposed as a religioegally sanctioned option for heteronormalizing people with same-sex desires or practices.”

!snip!

C’mon, Sparky. Tell the “hole” story.

    It’s easier for queers to get a hair cut over there too. Just don’t get too upset if they take a little too much off the top when they stretch your neck out.

    An Iranian sex change consists of a rope and a construction crane. These lefties are so fucking stupid it beggars belief.

    For the first time in human history, the literalism of Islam actually results in something that is more progressive than what you might see in the world at large

    Of coure, the reason The Koran says nothing about gender reassignment surgery is because the concept is about 5,000 years beyond the mental capacities of anyone living in Arabia in the 7th century. That’s why the Koran says nothing about it
