    Gulf states to introduce medical testing on travellers to 'detect' gay people and stop them from entering the country

    • Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the UAE already outlaw homosexuality, but are toughening their controversial stance
    • Kuwait's director of public health says 'gays will be barred'
    I wonder what the test is going to be? Answering questions of fashion and window treatments perhaps?

    Personally I find it amusing that the daily mail (for non UK people it is the rough equivalent of Fox News mashed up with a supermarket tabloid) is the one to carry the story.

    I am drawn to wonder though if things have improved since the days of the fruit machine.

    Hopefully it follows similar trends elsewhere (see lavender scare) and in some 10 years things get good and only get better from there.

    I'm curious as to how those tests work, exactly.

    The test, presumably, will take the form of a "Sex and the City" trivia game.

    If you know any of their names, you are barred from entering. If you can recite the sexual history of Carrie and Mr. Big in perfect detail, including the events of the two film adaptations, you are put to death.

    I'd think the obvious test is to shove something up their arse. If their answer is anything other than a cry of pain, you might be on to something.

    I'm slowly getting sick again so I could sneeze on them.
    Hopefully this will spread the "gay virus" quicker :yay:

    When all I saw in the recent threads section was "Gulf states to introduce medical testing on..." in the thread title, I already knew what it was going to be about.

    Are their borders going to start re-enacting this then?

    This is just as bad as russia banning straight people from countries that allow gay marriage from abopting russian children.

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    WHAT THE FUCK??

    We're all human. My best friend is gay. He's also black. This is like the 50's all over again.

    Can't we just all agree that we're all human? Shouldn't that be enough??

    I don't think that's the problem here.

    Well, it's a broad statement, over the whole subject of what's wrong and what's right in terms of human equality. I was just stating that 'just because'.

    I hate how some think that one race is better than the rest, one sexual-orientation view is better then the rest, etc. It's very sad. That's why I'd stated that we're all human. We're all equal. I dislike discrimination, you know?

    This isn't an issue of people. This is about cultures. Some cultures are better than others.

    This is a step in the right direction. Hopefully in the next few years more countries will adopt these policies and the Earth will have "Clean zones" where I can move to and raise a family without fear of them coming in contact with the diseased gays.

    Right, but I'm talking about that because it has to do with this issue.

    My friend touched a gay person once. He was later hit by a semi and killed. Coincidence?
