UAE to attempt 'cure' for gays using hormone treatment ...

... if this wasn't so serious, you think it must be a particualrly surreal sketch from Monty Python or The League of Gentlemen.

Of course I had read about the actual arrests before and assumed those arrested would be punished, but this nonsense about trying to cure them of something that is not even an illness is just too silly, and frightening of course. As someone who lived in the UAE for a while in the late 1980s and early 1990s I have to tell the UAE authorities that homosexuality has ALWAYS existed there amongst both the local and the expatriate populations; they know this, I know this, everybody knows this. They'll have to inject a pretty large number of people on an indefinite basis with this voodoo cure, because it ain't never goin' to go away completely - not until there are no more humans left on Earth, at any rate.
