    just thinking aloud - er, aTYPE i guess...


    Does anyone feel hatred against the US would lessen if our culture wasn't so 'gay friendly'?

    I doubt it. There are other countries that are gay friendly, but yet do not have the same hatred geared towards them that us Americans do.

    hmm...I guess we should learn to tolerate the choice of terrorists to hate us.

    Ya'll should all check out this blog:

    http://dear_raed.blogspot.com/

    This blog is posted by a man in Baghdad who is a homosexual. His blog name is Salam Pax, a great name. Although he has some problems with the occupation he is very happy that the US has ousted Saddam and Co. His posts start several months before the war so you can read what it was like living in a capital city on the verge of kaboomdom.

    It is tough for him, he likes alcoholic beverages and and he's gay, both serious no-no's in his culture. You can learn a lot about Iraq from the inside through his accounts, but from a very different perspective that you've ever heard before.

    I understand where you're coming from with this, Menewa. But Salam has been in Britain for over a year and getting paid handsomely. No fear for him.
