The whole gay thing is one of the great ironies of Islam (right after the ironic "religion of peace" thing). Based on what I have learned in 15 months of working with Afghans every day as well as Army training and hearing from other soldiers, the majority of muslim men would be called gay/bisexual by westerners, but they are violently ani-homosexual. I was reading one of the early articles about USMC Maj. Jason Brezler, who is in trouble for warning other Marines that an Afghan commander was sexually abusing boys on U.S. facilities. In the srticle was a statement that about 50% of Pashtun men have little boys, 9-14, as bacha bazi boys (Americans usually call them "chai boys") that they have sex with. My interpreter, last time I was here, estimated that aboput 80% of the privates in our basic training company were having sex with each other or sergeants and officers - but he was pretty flaming himself, so he may have overestimated. However, they remain publicly anti-gay to the point they might actually kill this guy. If he was in Afghanistan, his life would be short.
