As I start this post, I’ve decided I’m going to do something a little differently.Â Normally, when I have a hunch about how certain people to react to certain things, I check their web-sites first.
This time, I’m going to offer my hunch about how gay organizations are reacting at the outset and check their web-sites only after I have posted.Â Their response to outrages against gays in the Islamic world are so predictable, that I’m certain that either this
latest abusive use of gay sex escaped their attention or, if they had learned about it, decided not to comment on it because, well, it doesn’t fit their narrative.
Via Ace of Spades, a right-of-center blog, we learn that “Islamic terrorists are raping young men in order to drive them into suicide bombings.“Â Because ofÂ the “intense social stigma and fear of more gay sex attacks leaves Muslims prepared to die.”
Intense social stigma?Â As that stigma increasingly fades in Western societies, shouldn’t gay organizations concern themselves with that stigma in other lands, particularly when it leads to the persecution and execution of people just because they’re gay.
Shouldn’t gay organizations want us to ramp up the war on terror to defeat those persecute gay people and use gay sex for nefarious purposes?
And it’s not just gay sex, these extremists have a problem with.Â Michael Ledeen reports that one overzealous middle-aged female terrorist organized the rapes of young woman “so she could later convince them that martyrdom was the only way to escape the shame.”
I wonder if NOW has anything to say about that?Â Other left-of-center feminist organizations.
I am a gay blogger so I’m concerning myself with the reaction of the gay groups.Â I predict silence.Â Now that the post is up, I’ve got to search a few web-sites.Â We’ll see if my hunch is correct.
HRC UPDATE:Â All misty-eyed over the confirmation of Eric Holder, silent on gay rape as a terror tactic.
NGLTF UDPATE: Similarly silent.
NCLR UDPATE: More silence. This is getting to be a pattern.
Well, I guess this just goes to show that there’s really no need to check the web-sites of the national gay organizations because their responses to things are, well, just so predictable. They don’t want anything interfering with their narrative that the real evils in the world are Republicans in general and social conservatives in particular.
