"Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people were once again subject to the whims of homophobia and religious and cultural extremism this week, thanks to a United Nations vote that removed “sexual orientation” from a resolution that protects people from arbitrary executions. In other words, the UN General Assembly this week voted to allow LGBT people to be executed without cause."
Want to know what countries voted in favor of making it legal to exicute LGBT citizens based on nothing more then their sexual orientation? Here you go:
Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belize, Benin, Botswana, Brunei Dar-Sala, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, China, Comoros, Congo, Cote d'Ivoire, Cuba, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Jamaica, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lesotho, Liberia, Libya, Madagascar, Malawi, Malaysia, Maldives, Mali, Morocco, Mozambique, Myanmar, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Russian Federation, Rwanda, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and Grenadines, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Suriname, Swaziland, Syrian Arab Republic, Tajikistan, Tunisia, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, United Republic of Tanzania, Uzbekistan, Viet Nam, Yemen, Zambia, Zimbabwe
Two things come to mind when I found this out.
One, FOR FUCK SAKE! You have got to be kidding me! Where was everybody else? Yea, let's just hold a vote on the basic human rights of LGBT people around the world & include MOSTLY African and Middle Eastern countries in the vote!
Two, I would like to see the U.S. make a HUGE stink about this but we can't even repeal Don't ask don't tell! In order to fight bigotry and homophobia around the world we must lead by example!
I feel it people. Do you feel it? With this shit with the TSA, women being sentenced to death under Sharia Law every day and now this. There is a push to attack the human rights of every human being AND WE HAVE TO PUSH BACK!
ARE YOU PISSED YET? YOU'D BETTER GET PISSED! BECAUSE WHAT'S NEXT? AND WILL INVOLVE YOUR KID? I CAN'T SAY IT ANY CLEARER...
